Interested to see how those gear ratios are working out for you.

Updates:
I rarely ever come on this site now as FB groups are pretty much a replacement for forums
The build was completed, the car put down 605.
Blew a headgasket after 2,100 miles.
The shop claimed that the closed deck inserts dropped due to me abusing the car (WTF)
They rebuilt the engine and got the car back to me
Catastrophic engine failure 1,600 miles later
The shop claimed that I did not do proper maintenance, that running E85 contaminated the oil causing a spun bearing.
I took the car back and put it into storage.
Currently, the car is at a much more high profile shop.
An inspection found a wristpin C-clip stuck into the oil pickup, and the bearing was not the knock... the broken crankshaft was.
Nothing from the built longblock was salvageable.
The new longblock will be installed next week, and tuning is scheduled for mid-June.

Feel free to hit me up on the FB page "08-14 Subaru WRX/STI Owners"
