No updates as yet, I'm going to spilt a EJ207 block I've got very soon and send it off for blasting and machining ready for the 2.1.

Will post pics when it's split

STI4 heads have arrived today, they are going in to be fully rebuilt/refreshed ready to slot onto the 2.1 when it's complete. I bought these to avoid downtime on car as it can now be fully built on a stand and then just slotted in.

More updates?

Are you still in the Herts area (I live in KL)? I'd love to have a look over your project some time! I'm hoping to get my engine-swapped bugeye 2.35 -> v3 Type-R project back from EngineTuner in the next couple of months - obviously I'm just throwing money at them, rather than doing the work myself as you are, but I'd still love to get some ideas from you.

I run JJMs which is a Subaru garage in Leighton Buzzard, feel free to pop in if you're about. Let me know when and I'll make sure the R is there. 👍
