I got a problem with the car breaking up above 30psi :( it drives smoothly out of boost and below 30psi. The spark plugs/coil packs are all new and gapped appropriately to 0.024. The -10AN fragola fuel filter is new, injectors are new, Walbro fuel pumps are all new, air fuel and fuel pressure are all good. I think the spark is getting too weak for high boost pressures. I may need to change out my 14 year old alternator and get a grounding kit :)

been done with the car for 1 year now, all bolts with stock turbo/motor 400whp/375wtq, E85, carbon fiber driveshaft, RCE super street coilovers, and Stoptech brakes. The tamest of all my cars :)

I test drove the 2022 WRX, interior is way nicer and bigger, will upgrade once aftermarket support maxes the FA24 out :)

Nice build! Do you have a log for your WRX? How are the RCE super streets for street driving? I'm starting to see the 22's on the street now, the looks don't bother me, might be my next daily.

Very very nice build!
"I never regret any money I spend on my cars because psychiatrists and institutionalization is way more expensive" :LOL:

Also I'm totally stealing that line the next time anyone asks me why I spend money on my car.

Nope, upgrading the GT4 has erased all desire to get a GT3 and GT4RS :)
That's high praise.

Honestly with all the millions of things that can be upgraded on our cars, I think AC compressor and windshields are the only thing I can think of that dont have an "upgrade" possibility.

Atleast you got 14 years out of your compressor :)

You can get a clear, ceramic tint put on your windshield to keep out about 97%of all UV light. So it's probably just the ac compressor you can't upgrade.

Still having hesitation issues in high rpm’s despite new plugs, coil packs, alternator, fuel filter, injectors, fuel pumps

looks like this is the cause: 14 year old IAG uppipe what do you expect LOL
