I had accumulated all of the parts necessary to do a basic 5SFTE about 4-5 years ago. I had modded my NA engine with cams, head work, increased compression and header and I still wanted a little more power. I didn't get a chance to do it because my 5S spun a bearing and was scrapped in favor of a 3SGTE. I still have a couple pieces from back then like the intercooler and some intercooler piping (if you need them). I ended up selling most of my parts to a guy in high school in Kingsville, TX. I haven't heard if he ever got the setup running.

Mark (DSM-2-WRX on the old board) from Salem, OH did a 5SFTE a couple years ago. He didn't go too crazy with it and it was pretty fun. We took to a dyno here in Pittsburgh and it made 180 rwhp and 208 ft-lb. Here's a link to the video I took: http://beck.nbcpgh.org/5sfte dyno.wmv [1.47 MB]

He sold his '91 with only like 30k miles on it. He still has his WRX last I heard. He got married and then fell off the face of the earth. Last time I talked to him was in early 2004.

You can have them for $20. They aren't doing me any good. It's a stock 3SGTE intercooler and the hot pipe (which holds the BPV). I think that's all I have that would help you out on the 5SFTE.

Mestup, also look up Jim Snodgrass (Snodgrass23 on SpyderChat). He was doing a fully built, frankenstein 5s block/3S head thing. He finally got fed up with it and parted it out, but he did have it running before doing that.

Anybody want a stock 2g DSM intercooler? I've got a spare laying in my garage. Free. Inlet pipe is damage at the end, but unless you're putting it on another 2g DSM you're gonna cut them off and weld on something else anyways... *Might* even be able to cut off the damaged part and re-bead the end. Anyways, it's free to whoever takes it off my hands first!

Bump.

Mestup, are you still interested in the intercooler and whatever else I can find? If so, are you going to be going to ALMS at MidOhio? I'll see what I can find and bring it along if you'll be there.
