Re: Project TBAG, Dry sumped STI GT3 RS!

While we are waiting on the final package from Element Tuning:
I acquired these from Tuspeed (thanks Adam):

Cosworth Air Pump Delete Plate
Samco Turbo hose kit
Cusco Brake Cylinder Stopper
Motul Gear FF-LSD TYPE 2 75W90
STi High Pressure Radiator Cap
Goodridge Stainless Clutch Line

EJ207 is (nearly) sold ;)

Will be attending the state wide time attack in Oct. Club sprint class, awaiting class rules/tires. Due to lack of aero and dog box, I need to stay Clubsprint if I want to have any hopes of podium.

Also need to defend the street class title in Nov on a track I have never driven before.


Apart from the final ET package, need:

Brake ducts
Upgraded scoop
SS power steering and AVCS lines
New tires for installation and practice as well as the actual race.

Seems cheap:lol:

Need to isolate the trunk to comply with rules (dry sump reservoir and atmosphere ventilated AOS)






On a side note, timing gear and ... Being transferred from the EJ207 to the Element Pro Comp long block.

Damn! I have to be honest... Only this morning have I discovered this journal of yours, TBAG

( bows head in shame )


What could I possibly add to what some of our veterans have so eloquently stated already !??

Everything ( past / present / future ) is just simply awesome


Happy you're among us on IWSTi to share this epic Bug journey / transformation

Instantly part of my top 5 builds on here :tup:

Thanks!
You are kind :)
My project is my humble personal taste in cars/STIs. While yours is getting to Gobstopper levels of awesomeness:eek:

It is reassuring to get words of encouragement from "top dogs". With big projects, its quite easy to lose focus, but kind words from Bruce, Yazel, User 1029, Marc reminds me that I am on the right track.

In the coming months, we will witness further maturation of the "ultimate TBAG" and some intriguing battles with some tough competition. That's guaranteed:tup:

Will post the moment it is in.
However, everything is on hold till we get the TSS Fab front cross member and rest of the package. Unfortunately the division plate will be one of the last parts going in. But I promise a picture when it is in :tup:

308 gt4 :)

Can't wait for more technical detail and updates!
Wish it was mine :D
Not sure why it was in, maybe engine rebuild...don't remember.

This is Veloce Motorsport, a shop known for their 360 Challenge and 996 RSR race car :eek:

As obvious from pictures, they are Ferrari specialists. Due to some problems and a 200km/h spin due to brake problem, I decided to change shop. Had a meeting with Mario and told him what my intentions/plans are and here we go, we have an imposter/pretender among Ferraris ;)

Veloce Motorsport STI at your service. Maybe even a Veloce-Element:cool:
There will be few signs of Element Tuning also. Watch this space, should be fun as atleast two competitive events are coming...

That's some pallet :)
One of Elements signatures is surely water meth - what fuel will you be using in conjunction?

Haha. We had a lot if fun unboxing the pallet, finding stuff in every possible corner and place possible :)

Tbh, haven't decided completely.
For competition, most probably will run Martini 116 E85. Water injection as a security measure.

Normal driving/dd, 98 plus methanol is still a possibility.

Water meth is already integrated in the base map Phil has put on the Hydra.
