i know despite all the set back and let downs from crap companies, this has been a steep learning curve. i am still surprised at how little aftermarket support there is for the suby motors. i say little support as there seem to be soooo many variations of that 2.5 engine.  none the less you will have a rock solid engine when your  done and you will know exactly whats inside the block! nice work

i have more faith than that  ;)  it is a possibility  but a very slim one. 

you need to repeats some of your interactions with the "performance" suby companies around the camp fire in a couple weeks.  i will say that you def were a lot nicer then i would've been!!!!  especially that last crap hole company! 

of course out front motorsports didn't make it any easier. i am glad that the majority have had a good interaction with them. plenty of posts on line of those that haven't and that really is sad.

you def need to tell a few camp fire "performance suby company" stories  ;D rofl

Are any of you with BB turbos using a filter on the oil supply line? Only during engine break-in? Always? If so, what micron?
