The wing is a replica 22B adjustable that I did allot of work on the airfoil. It is aerodynamicly functional.
The P1 is a great suspension. I was not too concerned about the harshness of the ride when I selected it but it turned out to be fairly nice. It is a dual rate spring on the front so it is not jarring in normal driving but as soon as you load it, it firms up with little give. Nose dive under braking is gone and when Shields says that you can flip the wheel at 100 and know within 6 inches where the car will go he is not talking out his ass.
I had originaly intended to do a NA build so I put allot into the motor. The heads were done by Paeco and the passages are huge, the cam was also done by them. The rods, crank, and pistons also got done although I had to go back and do the pistons again when I went turbo. Right now I am yeilding a hair over 300HP at under 10PSI but the turbo is at it's max flow. Of course being a smaller turbo it spools instantly and I have boost ready under 2k. It really does feel like a larger NA engine.
The IC, uppipe, turbo and downpipe came from the JC Sports group buy. Since they didn't actually have the parts they were claiming to (long history on the group buy, it was fraud) the had to buy me the stuff from other vendors. They tried to rip me off but in the end they had to scramble and buy about 4k worth of stuff for the 2k payment.

I had a very good experience with them. I found their pricing to be closer to that of the mainstream V8 world where a port and polish is 1/4 expensive as a Subaru head job. They have one sweet cam setup. It can recut the cam and if material has to be added they can build up the lobe and machine it from there. The way I found out about them was through a friend who is a firefighter and had the responsibility of maintaining the dept. 1925 firetruck they used in parades and such. The engine was made by some french company that hasn't been in business since the 30's. The crank broke and the engine in general was shot. Paeco rebuilt the crank from the broken pieces and sent them the engine in better than new condition.
Now, warning and disclaimer. I have heard several complaints about them as well. A few people have claimed they ordered a performance clutch and recieved a stock RS clutch 3 months later. I can only tell you that my experience with their work was good but you should do some searches and ask anyone who had problems what the deal was.
I take it that you are not running the small Legacy RHB5 turbo, right? Do you know which turbo it is? I like your setup very much, especially all of your internal work, that must make for a lot less worry :happynow:.
I see that you are running a Synchro Gear set, would you mind telling from which manufacturer you bought it, and if you like, how much you paid?
