? Well I'm planning to be over building the motor but I'm expecting to handle at least 600/600 wheel range. Borge Warner S366 for now but it might get something bigger later. When I comes around ID1000's will help keep fueling up for a good while. Air to water has been tossed around more than a few times the last yearish.

Oh yeah the Pistons. A set of SuperTech 8.5:1's at least for now.

Nah, I think the next step when I push harder is to just go with the closed-deck inserts.

Ok that works too

Lmk if those rods are interesting to you, I can work on pricing accordingly. Will work up some other options too

What rpm are you shooting for as a peak?

Set to 5-6k to start till I cannstart dialing in. I'm expecting to be around 7k, but might be able to push father. Hard to tell till it's running, also wether pushing father will still net me. I'm going to be 3.54 swapping from front Final drive and rear so I'm likely to set it up to just keep more of the low end than push the top end.

Injectors and rails scheduled to show up Wednesday! Might be ordering my 6th piston and maybe new rings also this week! Not really much of an update but it's something! Feels good to have more things fall in place!

Money?! More time open?! :lol: Not enough time in a day. Maybe I need to start selling off some of the big ticket Magic items I have... Spent a little more than I intended on new stuff last month. :-/

Found that SuperTech now has a matching set of piston rings! The six piston and a new set of rings are set to be ordered at some point.

Researching track width changes from 97' vs 15'... 2015 STi steering rack is a bolt in upgrade at 13:1 steering ratio. Problem is the width. I have to figure out just how far I can adjust my control arms and how narrow/wide the 15' is so I'm not sitting there ****ing mega wrong toe settings.
GC is so much narrower that normally you would have to use a means to adapting it narrower with the outer tie rods.

This was gonna go on the blue car but it might end up on this instead... No name anywhere but 99.8% sure it's Titanium... Whole thing... Just need the final two tests to confirm!
