You said that it uses an under bucket shim, by any chance do you know what the rod bearing journal size is? 48mm or 52mm. I'm looking to buy some ACLs , and.I'm not sure which ones to get. I'm also getting pistons, rods, and if I have enough, cams. I don't want to do the Wisco, eagle combo everyone seems to do. I was thinking more of a all Brian Crower Piston, Rod,Cam set, or HKS Forged Piston set, BC rods, and Jun cams. The Jun Cams are kinda spendy tho. I Haven't decided, but when I went to order the bearings, I couldn't find if they were 48 or 52. Any Ingo would be great.

You said that you owned a ra wrc limited!?! How did you like it? Compared to w/e else ur Rollin now?!?
Rod bearing is 52mm (4B8296H), main bearing is rear thrust position (5M8309H)

What sort of power are you looking for?

Loved my STi5 RA Ltd, it had some nice factory features most dont, like the 13:1 quickrack and Helical front LSD. Dampers were nicely setup for the road but on track would fade after 10 miles of hard use. I didnt like the gearing between 4th and 5th, they were fitted with the later RA 1st-4th then the STi 5th, which just didnt work, so i put an RA 5th in there.

Currently run a Widetrack Blobeye JDM STi with aprox 500BHP/540Lbft, this is a lot quicker, my first RA was 300/300, 2nd RA 370/350.
