Build Time for the 2007 Limited STI..w/Updates
I hate to say it (dont know if this i good or bad news) but the 2007 Sti Limited I have invested so much in to is starting to get tired,,,,the stock block that is. I have always been prepared for this but didnt know when it would happen. I have been pushing 400whp on an ATP 3076 stock location turbo for the past 25,000 miles and it is starting to produce white smoke, white smoke out of oil cap, check engine light that cannot be read, and blow by oil leaks through charge pipes and bov. The car now has close to 84,000 on the stock block.
Its time to start the build. I brought it to my friends shop, Fast in West Chester. Looking forward to seeing what they can do. My as well go all out on this build and get a beast out of it since the exterior and interior is flawless on the vehicle. Also it has brand new fuel pump, gates water pump kit, tensioners, timing belt, etc. Looking in to large rotated turbo or Borg Warner Twin Scroll. I will be parting out all my stock location parts which some parts have less than 1k miles on them...if your looking for a deal! I guess I canot get too crazy with this since it is my daily driver. Would assume the 500whp mark is safe and obtainable.
