My E85 Raptor SC 2.5i build
 
First off, this is not complete but I have a few photos to share as I go.

Build list:
-2008 2.5i 4EAT 39k miles(yes I know it will eventually fail)
-10psi Raptor supercharger kit
-water-to-air intercooler & radiator from frozenboost.com
-Deatschwerks compact fuel pump
-Deatschwerks 750cc injectors
-Rallitek spark plug wires and transmission mount insert
-Hayden 676 trans cooler
-Prosport boost & trans temp gauge w/ JSC cubby
-E85 tune from Keith @ AWDTuning in Dallas
-Rallisportracing UEL headers, Magnaflow mufflers, Vibrant resonator

I have most everything done, I need to mount the radiator and water pump, wire my gauge, and get my base map written to the ECU. Also getting the second cat removed and pipe replaced with 2.5".

I'll post pics in the next post, I am doing this from my phone so it's a little slow.

Hey nice build sheet! The 4EAT is the only "meh" point as it wont handle the power in the best manner and by that I mean it wont transmit power optimally to the wheels it is a fairly stout gearbox, so it should last a long time as long as it cooled well :)

Got busy at work.. Here goes.

Bumper off

Intercooler radiator. I got a bigger one than I need, so it can be seen behind the bumper /rice

Had to relocate this sensor behind the bracket to clear the radiator.

Hayden 676 trans cooler

This is the intercooler. It sits where that plastic box was connected to the throttle body. Water is pumped through it.

Not much to see here, but Deatschwerks pump and injectors. Went to their shop to get them. Nice place.

Thanks. Who knows, maybe a 5spd swap is in my future.
I've got the trans cooler and gauge so I can monitor the temps. Should be ok got a while.

what SCASEYS said.

How much you have invested in go mods at this point?

bomberlegacy 10-25-2012 09:57 AM

Tim @ Raptor has been extremely patient with me and helpful. He sent me a dyno chart that showed 205ish horsepower, and I believe that was the 6psi kit on regular gas. I'll have 10psi and E85. Should be fun :)

I'm afraid to add it up haha
once I get tuned it will be about 4800 I think

GEE-OTTO 10-25-2012 10:38 AM

One thing i really like about a SC kit is the bolt-on/off nature. looks good !!!!

compsurge 10-25-2012 10:41 AM

I wouldn't worry so much about the 4EAT. There is a guy with a 4th gen wagon running 11's all day long.

That and it's in every Subaru ever made since I-don't-know-when, so it's cheap.

bomberlegacy 10-25-2012 01:34 PM

Awesome. Glad to hear it.

Haight 05LGT 10-25-2012 01:57 PM

Have to ask...why not just spend the extra on an LGT? To be different?

bomberlegacy 10-25-2012 02:04 PM

I got a good deal on the car, I wasn't planning on doing any engine work at the time..
Now I have money in the stereo & sound deadening and wheels/brakes etc.. So I really don't want to get rid of it.. And yeah.. Its a fun & different project that should get good results.

Really happy to see this ! i was looking for the same project to do . Found a Raptor SC Kit used for 3200$ , then read a bit about the whole subject , but had a couple of fear , at first for the 4eat , i still dunno if i should pull the trigger hehe .

rum0rz 10-25-2012 06:28 PM

Subscribed! Can't believe how close your list is to my list of to do on my 08 4EAT haha. Can't wait to see how your car goes man.
