These things will be scary fast with a basic Stage 2 STi engine in them... like power to weight equivalent to 500+ HP STis. E85 and 60 lb/min turbos? Definite kill myself territory.
The amount of torque a built 2.5L produces down low is also going to be quite a handful for a RWD car this light, but I suppose that will make the 3.7 final drive 5MTs that are so bad for motorsports in a WRX a good match for the 818.
They're looking at my destroked high revving shortblocks, which I think will be much more driveable for these cars.
