Yes it is....... And it'll be there a little bit longer now! Going to do a short block on it. And maybe a oil pan also.

Yeah I always look at it for exterior styling inspiration. Very nice looking car. I did not realize that you do not have a built motor.

It looks great in person. I really like the way they mounted the oil cooler. Actually, if I remember correctly, Joe used your car to show me how they mount the Defi gauges on the A-pillar. My car will be in Goodspeed shortly. The Cosworth shortblocks are amazing and Todd the Subaru mechanic at Goodspeed has gotten 40k miles out of his and it still does not burn or consume oil. I already have a Raw Performance track series SB otherwise I would have gone Cosworth. My stock shortblock gave out around that mileage so it doesn't really surprise me. I guess my Dominator 3.0R turbo finally did it in. Now that I have a built SB I am going to go for the new Dominator 5.0XT-R.

How much power are you expecting to make? It is a twin scroll rotated 30r right?

Love the car! The Goodspeed peeps build good ****! The only thing that pisses me off, everytime I look at it is the intercooler pipes, why mine didnt get them after a year of being there is beyond me. And if you looking for 500whp, you need head work, remember power is made in the heads of the car not the shortblock. The Shortblock only lets you run power safley, go with the Cossie its only 500 more and I saw one who blew at 20k that was running just shy of 600whp up here in Washington and guess what its going back to Cosworth to be redone for free, who can beat that customer service.

the car is going to be a dd still and i live about 3 hrs away from phx so the goal is for a nice reliable street/track car! i dont have e85 around here so pump gas is the only option. the cosworth is what im wanting to get just because i havent heard of anyone say anything bad about them. But asu you have a good idea.... i might just get some head work done since it torn down anyways right? how much of a power gain would i actually see on pump gas?

Garrett has turned to crap lately. Their quality is declining at an alarming rate. There is thread after thread about newer Garrett turbos will all sorts of issues.

I think my next kit will be a Borg-Warner turbo and they seem to be gaining traction and seem to have some good offerings. I'll need to do some more research though.

All I remember seeing was some guy in the general discussion talking about how he works for Honeywell and that they are outsourcing to Mexico and China, and how that has affected quality control.

Mind sharing some of the issues that have been happening? I'm behind the times and want to catch up.

I just assumed you probably work for Honeywell because they are in this area. Oops. I didn't know Borg Warner was releasing a variable geometry turbo that is universal t3/t4 flange or will it have a subaru type housing and flange?

What do you mean? I got a new ams v-band turbo.... I've been reading a lot of good stuff about this turbo. If I remember right I think I read something you said on one of the thread saying there were pretty good turbo's. I haven't got to drive the since I got all this but it should do pretty good for what I waiting I hope!
