Default Re: Rob's 2014 WRB STI Sedan | Three year update!

So I might be contemplating doing a full on build. Not sure wich direction I want to go however. Full on rotated freak, or a maxed out stock location setup using something like an FP Black. Cost is going to be somewhat of a factor, but I want to do everything right the first time.

Well, since my last update I have upgraded my stock interior bulbs to LEDs!

Ohh... and I believe the engine is terminally hurt. Looks like a full on build at this point, or somehow get out of the car. Stay tuned to see whats next.
The following video will explain what has happened.

Hey sorry to hear about the car! I was really enjoying your build thread until the last post. What did you decide btw ... rebuild ... or?

Also, did you ever put the e85 kit and the turbo on together? I got lost a bit through the large list of upgrades lol ..... I'm on e85 right now and soon going to be upgrading to Dom 1.5XTR and would like to see what that dyno chart looks like.

p.s. I'm from the Houston area .. just a little south from where you are... in Sugar Land

5/20/17 - Small update: Engine is FINALLY out, heads have been shipped off to Headgames Motorworks.
Cylinder 2&4 had ringland failure
Turbo compressor housing, intake manifold, and TGVs have been sent to powdercoating
Added some new headwork to the build too. Going o have Headgames' "pocket port" service done to increase some CFMs, and hopefully, help with some mid-range and response.

I think the hardest part of this whole process has been learning a new level of patience, I wait by the phone and scour their page just for a glimpse of my baby


I LOVE MY AWDTuning FAMILY!!!!
