Still on the fence here. An hta green or 30r on e85 would get me so close to 500 to the wheels but possibly leave enough of a safety margin on the axles. Just not sure that's going to light my rocket, with over 200 runs at the strip and a full day on a road course I'm afraid it will leave me wanting.

the triple is a good clutch, but id look into a act sprung 6 puck. the act xtss will not support that power.

upgrade the rad with a good one...no crap rebadged ebay garbage.
the xtss will hold that power, i made over 540whp and over 500wtq and it held fine. stock radiator is also fine.

a decent setup with an sti 6 speed isnt that laggy. and what maintenance? oil changes? i daily drove mine between 420 and 540whp for over 20k miles on one clutch and just oil changes and plugs.

I was saying this to somebody the other day - you can beat on a ~400whp car on the street a whole lot more than a 500whp+ car. The torque curve isn't a problem for daily driving. The problem is more about keeping the car going straight and in your lane, and not getting carried away.


Oh and regarding reducing underhood temps, you can remove the weatherstripping at the back of the engine bay where the hood meets up with the windshield. That helped on my car.

Considering the hta green or a rotated 30r, other than the obvious difference in mounting position and ease of installation, what's going to get me a low 7 second pass in the 1/8, or roughly, close to 500 at the wheels on e85? And just how many options are there with the 30r?

What the hell is the deal with people giving this guy crap because he wants the power? If he wants 700whp who gives a ****? Quit whining, it's not your money.

Don't pay them any mind, they suffer from peni$ envy. Besides, the more I think about it the more I'm considering something smaller...turbo that is.

I've had so many issues with my car I'd be worried about a 500+whp dd. Granted, you have a much better platform to start from, but still. I think the best bang for the buck turbo, with built motor, would be a gtx3076. Should be relatively quick spooling, especially rotated, for the street but still offer some high rpm hp as well.

Otherwise, I'd say you have the right idea, a BW would be ideal for 500+whp. Just not sure the reliability is going to be there. Seems to me that any built engine isn't made for longevity, especially run hard. I want to see some built engines handling 400+whp lasting 100,000 miles or more.

Why not just pickup something else for a daily? Obviously if you are putting this kinda money into the car you could pick up something that will be more fuel efficient and just beat around... Then have the other car to toy around with...

I run a 30r on e85 and I'm only putting 440 to the ground at 25 psi. Then again it's not rotated. Roatated 30r is achievable on E. btw I'm on a stock block and heads. Super reliable and safe tune.
