...shooting for 380whp on this setup, only restricted by the stock block and I don't want to take too big of a risk!
other upgrades probable before summer of 2012:
BC ER coilovers
TE37's 10" wide probably...255 or 65 series tires
Whiteline Sways and Endlinks F/R ...nothing super aggressive
maybe Rear Sway Bar...maybe some other chassis stiffening or control arms
Whiteline Roll Center kit
Motor rebuild sometime in 2012 or early 2013...
too many unworked details but will be mildly cammed, full head work oversized valves, CP pistons, Cosworth Rods/Bearings, 11mm oil pump, HKS timing belt, Cosworth guides...some serious springs/retainers, micropolished and balanced stock crank...looking to spin this thing to about 8500rpm's (reliably...) engine builder I'm going to be working with would tell you 9000+ rpm's no problem.
I see you've been tuning through topspeed...good choice! I've had a few bumps in the road (not with the car though!) and am in the process of doing a stock location build now... I'm going to shoot for around 400whp on e85 and I'll also wind up with a 93tune just in case. I will probably do a MAP tune as the Cobb AP's support it now and it's a solid and safe tuning solution. What kind of fuel system were you running when you popped that piston? I'm hoping you weren't on the stock fuel rails because I've always been a hater of sequential fueling. I'm actually about to drop a DW 65C pump in the car and do some spark plugs this weekend. Be on the lookout for this next phase to be complete by August...oh, and I move to CO this coming fall (hopefully)Gary,
You end up doing the turbo upgrade? This is Brian, I met you at EP Tom Sawyer meet last year when me, you, and John had all just taken delivery of our cars.
Well, I'm on a built motor now. Car has been to Cobb in Texas and Topspeed in Altlanta. 20gxt turbo on E85 putting out 400whp and feels great. Got sways, etc.
Modlist for days like most Sti's. It's been a fun ride! Oh well, I just wanted to track you down and get an update on your build! I hope you are well!
