Been a little while since I have updated this. I have got the STi driveline 100% installed. The only issue I have ran into is the rear is still pretty low and it rubs. The strange thing is my coils are pretty much maxed out to as high as they go. Here is a pic of my 6MT 1.8L
The front looks lower in this pic due to the slope of the driveway.
Lol yeah, I haven't driven it much yet as it needs an alinement so I can't comment on the MPGs yet. I did try to launch it and it just bogged lol. The 1.8 is sooooo sloooooow. Can't wait to get a EJ207 in there. I want to get a version 7 spec c but they are near impossible to find. I may have to settle for a version 8. The big port heads are too good to pass up. If i do, I am deciding if I want to dump the twin scroll. I love the rumble(all the piping is cheeper and easier to come by on the traditional single scroll) but the transient boost response of the twin scroll would be nice on the autox course tho.
In the way of power I'm looking to get 350 on 91 and 400 on race gas. That should be plenty for a DD/autox car. I would also think that's still in the safety margin of the version 8 motor if I do the proper suporting mods.
