    Update;

    So started my tear down, taking my time but forst step was to get the turbo setup off and cleaned up then sold

    So here I backed it out and backed it in lol




    Dont have much room in there. Luckily my dad felt bad once he seen my room and offered to put it in his much much bigger garage which ill do next week when I go to pull the motor



    So first thin I done was just remove some of the easy bits like the alternator cover, battery, intake and recirc valve



    Unbolted the tmic and disconnected the meth jets



    removed inlet pipe



    My shop dog haha



    Jacked it up and started at the header



    Sheared off the first two bolts and couldnt get the third one at all



    Was in such a weird placement lol so had to take out the big guy for it



    When we started to cut the bolt, got the heat wrap on fire hahaha quickly poured water over it lol

    Anyways after I got the intake off, inlet pipe, downpipe, header, alternator cover, recirc valve, tmic I cleaned it all up and packaged them up and sold them lol



    Then once I got back home I brought the cherry picker and engine stand to dads garage and put that together




    And thats where im at right now. Ill prob be placing the ordre with BNM Fabrications soon for the turbo kit and next week ill haul the engine and possibly tear it apart see what it looks like in there

    Re: Brandon's 2012 ISM STI

    Alright another update for my journal haha

    Anyways first thing I done was move it too a bigger garage. My fathers garage is messy as hell but I dont have any other option lol so once I got her in bought and put together some nice automotive dollys and bought some fender covers to protect the sides



    Next step was too unbolt the alternator



    And another bolt going straight down into a bracket



    Once I had that unbolted I decided to let the coolant out. Moved the bracket back and unplugged the rad fan



    Same on the other side as well



    Removed the rad cooling plate and rad stays. Snapped off a bolt somehow so ill have to drill that out



    Disconnect the coolant lines from the overflow tank



    Once thats done you just haul the rad right out



    and here is all the space. Literally can climb in there and get at the back bolts alot better lol

    Next I disconnected the fuel lines. There clips can be a bit of a pain. I would def recommend the little tool you can buy for these fittings haha we managed to get them off by sing to small pick screw drivers with 90* ends. Slide them in the notches on the clip and haul left and right to open the clip and then haul the hose off





    Next I started disconnecting the AOS lines. First one was the line going to the top of the coolant tank



    Then disconnected the AOS line going to the turbo



    Then the two hoses going to the crankcase on the right and left




    Disconnected the line going from the fuel reg to the manifold as well as the masteer cyl to the manifold

    Re: Brandon's 2012 ISM STI

    Next was labeling the recirc valve line lol label everything



    Then I just labeled the boost gauge line and removed the recirc valve hose from the engine bay



    Covered the intake manifold throttle body which made zero sense hahah



    and then started to unbolt the AC compressor. I didnt disconnect any lines. Because I dont want to recharge it and also found you arent suppose to release the freeon to the atmosphere

    Re: Brandon's 2012 ISM STI

    Then I started back at the AOS unit again lol so unhooked the top entry of the middle of the crankcase



    Another middle crankcase connection but the side entry.



    The we bolted the cherry picker to the engine to take some strain after I unbolted the engine mounts




    Next was prob the most difficult part lol taking off the starter hahah what a pain. Anyways its two long bolts that bolt it too the back of the bell housing and then another two bolts that go through the starter bracket and through the bell housing to the short block casing

    One of the bracket bolts through the bell housing



    here you can see one of the two long skinny bolts what hold the starter together



    Next after you remove the starter oh side note there is also a small wire for the starter that needs a 10mm nut to be removed and also a 12mm nut for a ground but like I was saying next is a allen head bolt that holds the clutch fork into place youll need to remove that



    all together there is two long bolts for the bell housing on top, one more on each side, two on the starter and two more nuts that are on bell housing studs if I remember correctly

    Re: Brandon's 2012 ISM STI

    This is the hole with that allen head removed



    and the fork pin



    once all that is out you can now start to split the block from the bell housing. Best thing I found was a small pry bar and a few taps from the hammer and it come right apart



    you can see here where the clutch fork is still connected and dangling from its boot hah




    and after some wiggling and lifting shes out nothing to it, dad popped by to help taking it out hah




    clutch and flywheel dont look to bad




    Turboooo which is for sale



    and then took off the coolant tank, couple 10m bolts I believe it was

    Re: Brandon's 2012 ISM STI

    Removed the air pump on the back, only two bolts



    Took off the ebc bracket



    removed the 4 bolts that kept the throttle body on and removed that



    one last hose to the throttle body



    then disconnected the line going to the fuel lines



    then I removed the injectors from the tgv and drained the fuel left in them and the lines. TGVs are a simple removal only 6 bolts for each unit



    tied up and braced my ac compressor as well so no kinks in the lines



    and thats about it for right now lol when im off work again ill remove whats left and split the block and have a look. Judging by the amount of oil that came out which was only about a quart she def spun a bearing. But I need to figure out where 4 quarts went to in 2 weeks

    Re: Brandon's 2012 ISM STI

    Well another little update got my first parts ordered. Ordered my BNM FMIC kit and the widebody. Next will be gauges so I got some stuff to keep me occupied over winter. Then I think Ill either order my head stuff or all my other little things I need
    But either way picked at it a bit over on these days off
    So removed the fuel lines altogether because I sold my fpr and going with a aeromotive one and iag lines

    then air to driver side head

    along with passenger head

    then coolant feeding to the bottom of the engine

    sensor haha

    the coolant lines

    and I honestly have no idea what this is

    everything pretty much removed

    I believe this is the pcv valve

    removed the flares and sold them haha no turning back now
