My 2.5 swap build thread

So i have decided to go ahead with a 2.5 swap on my 2008 coupe. All parts are already sourced the only thing i don't have in hand in my motor but its coming. 2.5 fusion motor with less than 10K miles on it. I will be doing a complete refresh at the same time. Parts already in hand are, VCT delete, BSD delete, crower stage 2 cams,valve springs, 2.3 timing cover, all motor mounts, valve cover, front stop tech front pads, new OE front rotors, MASSIVE SPEED rear disc brake conversion, new tie rods, new lower control arms w/ ball joints, poly bushings for those control arms.

Current mods on car are:MASSIVE SPEED camber arms, MASSIVE SPEED toe arms, MASSIVE SPEED front sway bar end links, MASSIVE SPEED upper front stress bar, CFM cold air intake, OBX header, FSWERKS race exhaust with a custom highflow cat in the front pipe, H&R coilovers w/ custom modified LCR front camber plates, , FSWERKS rear stress bar, swapped in a rear sub frame with sway bar mounts and a progress 25mm rear bar, front sway bar poly bushings, team dynamics pro race 1.2 17X8 wheels, and complete HID with projectors retro fit on the headlights also needing a refresh.

Here are some pics of the car and my yummy parts boxes. work will begin on this car last weekend of this month. I am ripping everything out of the engine bay for this since I'm doing a complete cleaning and refresh of the engine bay at the same time. I may do a minor wire tuck but not a full not worth it one tiny bit scene points aren't what I'm after.

Thanks for looking. If there is interest ill take photos of the whole process if not i will just post photos as i go

This looks like a awesome build. 10K on the motor, why go thru it? I take it you using a poly dogbone, so you going w/ poly psm/dsm's? It'd be great to add a torsen,,,,,,,,Little mk2 <3

The cfm's are lighter & stouter then the oem A-arms.
Which ones were they? Centralfocus? HT Performance? Dominicengineering? CFM? I've had my cfm arm's for yrs w/ no issues & I have a torsen which adds more stress. CFM uses thicker gauge matrial & has more gussets & uses a bigger heim joint.
