Default Karlton's 06 SGM STI - Full Race Custom Fender Flares!

Well I figured it's about time I started a journal, as i've been on here for quite a while now. It'll help me remember what i've done to the car as well So I bought it November 2005 with 8 miles on it, broke it in for around 500 miles, then brought it out to it's first autox. Previous to this car I drove a DSP supra, GS Mini, and a ES MR2, all on race tires. Boy did the car not want to turn.......

Originally, the car was supposed to be my daily driver and remain stock, but after it's first autox, the mod bug bit me hard and I ended up building my car for the STU class. After 3 years in the class, local competition dwindled and it was time to look for a new class to run in. SM looked well populated.....

So just last year I started prepping my car for SM. There's a whoooooole bunch of things that can be done in this class, and I will be slowly building for the class as funds allow. So far, here's what I have done:

Engine Mods
- Built shortblock - Darton sleeves, copper o-rings, JE 100mm coated pistons, BC pro rods, ACL race bearings, Nitrided crank, Cosworth modified oilpump, ARP headstuds
- Built heads - GSC S1 268/266 cams, Cosworth +1mm SS intake/ Inconel exhaust valves, BC valvesprings/Ti retainers, PnP, Bowl blend

- Tial 38mm mv-s wastegates
- TIGWERKS ewg mufflers

- Custom 4 intake

- Turboxs surgetank
- Aeromotive adjustable fpr
- Aeromotive top feed fuel rails
- Mix of Fragola and Goodridge 910 lines/fittings
- TIC/Motive Autoworks composite TGV deletes
- Kstech 9.5mm Phenolic intake manifold spacers
- RC engineering 1600cc injectors
- Full 80mm Magnaflow Ti catback exhaust with Burns Stainless mufflers
- Crawford Performance air/oil separator
- Hydra Nemesis full standalone
- Tune by Mike Warfield(GST Motorsports) on E85 fuel
- Odyssey pc680 battery
- KillerB ultimate oil pickup, baffle plate/windage tray, oilpan
Suspension
- Custom valved JRZ RS Pro coilovers with Hypercoil springs/ Eibach tenders
- Ground Control camber plates front and rear
- Whiteline 27-29mm swaybar front and rear
- Kartboy rear endlinks
- TIC lateral link bushings

- TIC bodacious bushing bundle
- Kaaz Super Q 1.5 way rear LSD
- Rallispec rebuilt center diff
- ACPT cf driveshaft
Exterior
- Genuine V-limited front lip
- Karlton fender flares
- Passenger side foglight housing
- Ravspec cf upper roof spoiler
Interior
- Sparco Evo2 driver side seat
- Sparco Pro2000 passenger seat
- Buddyclub super low down seat rail(driver)
- Wedge engineering/Sparco rails/sliders with aluminum sidemounts(passenger)
- Innovate Motorsports LC-1 wideband with XD-16 gauge
- Defi BF boost and oil pressure gauges with controller
- ATI gauge pod
- Rear seat removed
- Personal Neo Grinta 330mm steering wheel
- Work Bell/Splash hub
- NRG quick release
Wheels/Brakes
- AME TM-02 18x11 +10 with Yokohama Neova AD08 285/30/18 tires
- SSR competition type c-rs 18x10.5 +25 with Hoosier A6 285/30/18 tires
- Girodisc 2 piece rotors front and rear
- Hawk HP+ pads front and rear

A lot of the parts carried over from my days in STU(coilovers, etc). The main changes i've done for SM is the motor stuff. Tons of fun, but it's taken a while to get used to the power, especially with the E85 gas. SM is definitely a class that i'll be in for a while, unless I get ambitious and move to XP lol

Very nice!

You're running a huge rear bar for an auto-x guy.

Thanks guys! Here's a link to my youtube channel too: YouTube - xtremeyolks's Channel . I'll have some better pics of the car soon. As for the rear bar, I use the big one and a cusco 22-24 and am not sure which one i'm gonna stick with. At first I used the small one with 800lb rear springs, but was getting some crazy hopping coming out of corners( here's my thread on nasioc about it Bouncing coming out of corners - NASIOC), so I switched to softer springs and lowered the rear 1/2" so I put on the bigger bar so the car would still turn haha. Seems to be working well so far but there's a few other things I still need to tinker with

Finally Karlton!! It's nice to see you finally have a journal too. I got my car sorted out btw. it ended up being te ecu going into failsafe mode from bad gas or possibly drivig it in the rain (no snorkus). A new tank of gas and a reset and I have boost back.

only like 2 more weeks until your season starts. Let me know if u need help with anything.
