I just been focusing on suspension to get the best handling as possible, cooling,

^ that made me think of something that I ran into, any track where you'll go over maybe 120-130mph you will probably start running into problems where your rad fan (if stock) will start cutting into your rad hoses; the airflow will bend the fan back enough to hit the expanded hoses after several runs. Samco's will help you not do this. I got lucky when that happened to me during a practice and was able to buy a spare set from of the guys at the track but I would've been screwed during the competition otherwise. Figure I'll try to save you the trouble. wink2.gif

Using a hose with a spring form inside of it would prevent that, and would also prevent the radiator>engine hose from shutting at high rpms due to vacuum. It's also cheaper than a Samco hose.

If you look closely you can see my oem trailing arm bent from the previous owner who got rear ended. This should of been changed out when it got inspected and this caused the issue of me only being able to get NO MORE THAN -1.0 camber in the rear!

Yeah a lot has happened the last two weeks, I wish I had a decent camera to post pictures more often. I did get a call from my good friend today to go pick up my front bumper with the new down force set up! Excited and cant wait to see the improved difference smile.gif

And an update for everyone who follows this thread, 2 weeks left till my first race (03/30)! Getting tuned next week, i'll post a pictures of my car on the dyno and numbers my car gets. I really hope to make 300whp even though I am satisfied with the speed I have right now. All the purchases I have done this winter for all dedicated for cooling and handling purposes, once I feel quicker or if something goes wrong with the engine then i'll do some engine upgraded mods.

Lowering the car tomorrow 1" - 2.0" depending how the slicks fit. Hauling the car to Innovative-Garage this week to get the race alignment / corner balance so I can have put on the dyno like I explained up above.

300whp is your goal? I'd like to know what you're running to reach that power level. I'm looking at a VF30 turbo with supporting mods, TGV deletes, FMIC.

And I'm jealous of your bumper, what are the canards made out of?

Nothing much a VF39, STi TMIC, 1000cc dynamic injectors, Invidia N1 full exhaust, Cobb up/down pipe, cobb short ram intake and a really good tune! Still haven't decided if i'll be getting tuned on E or not.

Went today to pick up my trunk. Another bad quality cell phone picture haha, really should invest in getting a legit Camera.

I need some advise! I am trying to pull off my right rear control arm and the nut next to the gas chamber WILL NOT COME OFF! mad.gif We tried PB blaster and heating up the nut with a torch and it's just keeps laughing at me, the nut is badly damaged and and I really don't want to cut the screw. I'm thinking of trying to cut off the nut with some power tools my neighbor will be bringing home from his shop tomorrow so will see. Please let me know of any other advise!? smile.gif

You already swapped the tails for the "Prettyboy Stevens", why didn't you do the nose while you were at it? dry.gif

Of course, that's just my personal preference; I hate the look of the '06-07.

I say the need for the mention of female genitals is rather unnecessary. Also if you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it. I think the car looks fine. So shhhhh!

Also for the nut dilemma, have you tried yelling and cussing at it? I did that once to one of the terminals of my car battery and I broke it off. Had to get a new one... And my dad told me to meditate to control my inner Hulk. derp.gif

How can you hate the eagle eye look? Looks a hell of a lot better than the blobeye or the bugeye...

FC, you're going to have a hard time getting 300 WHP from a VF39 without a FMIC. Go on E for sure, it'll make it easier to reach that magic figure.

It will be tough with a VF39 and not being fmic wont help, will see what I get on the dyno smile.gif

Do it. It's so worth it, and it'll make your power goals cake. Plus, you definitely have enough injector to support it.

I don't know if you've tried it yet, and I HIGHLY suggest keeping an extinguisher on hand if you do it, it to heat up BOTH the nut and the bolt and the area around it with a MAPP torch and get it glowing, then hit the bolt at the center with PB Blaster. It'll cause a snap cooling and contraction of the bolt, hopefully breaking the rust just enough to allow the nut to come free.

If that doesn't work, just cut it. You eventually get to a point where it stops being worth your time to fuck around with it and just do what you know'll work. I don't use just heat anymore, if PB Blaster by itself doesn't work I go straight to what I described above, and after two tries I grab the angle grinder. It's not worth the time to try to do it cleanly at that point.

FINALLY! Now you can actually start doing work on the rest of the damn car. Gosh that looks really bad... I would have just taken one look at in and said nope and cut it. Good luck getting the rest of the car finished in time for the race on the 30th! You can do it! laugh2.gif

On my last session exiting the track about to head home my car turned off. Stupid upper radiator hose hit the fan (Very common with Subaru) My distilled water shot all over my motor and I possibly broke a sleeve in the Short block or a blown head gasket, I HOPE it's just a head gasket. Pulling the motor this weekend to find the damage

I'm actually the black stig:

Sucks to hear about the coolant issue, that shit sucks on the track, once it happens you're basically along for the ride. If you lose circulation, you'll flash boil whatever's in there, if there's nothing there, it's going straight into the metal. One of the worst possible situations you can be in. sad.gif

That said, the numbers look good, man. If you've got a good tuner, that torque is going to be INSANE on corn.

@pingu86 That is a secret!! happy.gif

Hopefully it's just a really head gasket, if not I have 2 choices and i'm honestly not so sure which to do.

1 - Purchase a Rallispec block with a lot of goodies. It's a dedicated racing short block and this will last me a good long while with a great tune and Corn. It would be the more pricey choice.
http://rallispec.com/prod_block.htm (The upper one for $3500)

2 - I have a friend over here who has a 2004 STi long block that he would give to me installed for $2500, it's got some internal things changed out to make it run safe. The sketchy part is he's a drifter and this motor has been drifted on. The reason why he is selling it is because he wants to make 500hp and he's building another STi engine. He said he's more than happy to do a compression test etc to show me it's a good motor but I dunno if I would run into more problems in the long run..

You can see the Blue STi I am speaking about in this video from our drift event last month.

Also do a leakdown on the STi motor, and do both tests dry AND wet. Also important, what did he run for oil? I'm sure you know how zinc-sensitive those motors are.

In the end, it's probably also cost-effective to sleeve and build your own, then you're in complete control of everything and you get an engine you don't have to worry about. A buddy of mine recently did the math to build his blown '98 STi 2.0, and he's finding it to basically be a no-brainer to sleeve it and slap in a Cosworth 2.2 stroker setup, and I looked at his numbers and couldn't agree more. He's also considering having my guy assemble the rotating assembly based on my experiences with him and I can't blame him there either.

Looking at the site, I see the price you sited was for their "street" build. IMO, street builds are bolt-ons and headwork within reason. If you're building a bottom end you should be doing it right and overbuilding it, none of this "for the street" crap. My on paper weak point are my rods at 650tq, but the reality is that they're Eagles, and that I could melt my 800hp pistons and reuse the rods without question. I'm built for twice what I ever plan to make, and I don't have to worry about it.
