Default Project Dreadnought **Quest for a 7 second pass**

So finally did it. Got tired of Fwd and went awd. Bought myself a 2000 Subaru 2.5RS

UPDATE (11/19/15)

NEW for 2016:



Change a few things over to make the car more reliable and to be able to compete with the big guys out there.



Care package from our friends over at Rigoli in Australia



6speed out of the car and auto going in



Battery cutoff installed to meet NHRA regulations



Added a little shot of nitrous to help spool up on the line.



Picked up a set of BBS stockers and M&H drag radials to putter around town in...



Some logging to make sure everything is ok



For 2016 will be making quite a few changes.
Been eye balling the precision 7685 T4. Looks to be the turbo Ill be going with. Redoing my remote mount turbo kit to all T4. Most imporantly going to a full radiaor mounted in the back for the best cooling possible. Last but not least back to an air-air intercooler. The AWIC has been less than successful for us over these last few years.




Over the last few years have been building and rebuilding my project RSTi slowly moving towards my ideal build.

You learn fairly quickly that doing it yourself usually isn't the best method to achieving your goals. Its normal to ask for help.
In this instance, it was a no brainer.

Need to have the front license plate. Nowhere to put it though without blocking the IC or fogs... any thoughts?

How about getting one of those license plate holders that once you get to a certain speed they tilt back to allow more air to the radiator/IC.

I built a quick release mount so I can take it off when Im at the track or taking pics. Street driving the IC doesnt get hot enough to matter, and I beat on it on the street.

Hey man! I thought this car looked familiar.

I graduated AU in May. I lived in The Brick and saw you driving by all the time.

I have seen this car in person. It is SICK!
