Default Next step on build....Suggestions

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2455898
This is my current build. I'm pondering over what my next step or mod should be and wanted to get ur opinions? Head porting? Cams? E85? I'm open to anything really.

Should probably ask that question IN your thread lol.

Apparently E85 is amazing.

I don't know what to suggest, so I'll have to say.... rockets....rockets everywhere. Throw some machine guns on there too, probably on your mirrors. Some lazarzz too! And and and and and a grenade launcher that shoots pumpkin pies with whipped cream ( don't forget the cream, very crucial )!!

E85, you have a lot of room left in that turbo. You will need larger injectors (1300+) and a massive fuel pump, maybe try the new 400lph units. If you go E85, put stock copper plugs back in, just regap them super short. The 255 won't cut it and the 300lph isn't worth it. Might need fuel rails too, not really sure where they become a restriction on E85.

I bet you could make another 50whp at least on E85.

You can look at some of my old dyno sheets, I was making pretty good power on E85 with my Dom 3.

I would say no there wouldnt be any gain besides being able to run that on E85 minus the meth system.

I think anything you do now will yield slight gains per 1k Never hurts to Port and polish anything you can get your hands on. Being able to lighten the weight of components will give you more power sooner. Lightening up the car is usually a good way to go. getting rid of 200 lbs will make you much quicker but you sacrifice comfort and noise.

I dont see what turbo is on the car?

I know you always hear us moderators ask "what are your goals and what is your budget?".

You might wonder why we ask this, thinking that it's obvious what you want to do. You want to be the biggest badass in the state, right?

Ok.....I'm looking at a car. (this is a true story, by the way).

It's stage 2 on coilovers with a FMIC and a 50/50 expensive bov. Has some very expensive EBC as well. Tuned to 265whp. 07 WRX with an STi 6 speed. You might say....perfect modding platform. If it checks out at the pro tuner/pre-purchase inspection I'm paying for Saturday, I'll be doing the following:

Removing the EBC and going back to ECU controlled boost.
Making a cover to convert the 50/50 BOV into 100% recirc.
Eventually replace the FMIC with a stock WRX top mount setup.
Eventually replace the 50/50 with cover with a stock Subaru OEM BPV.
Trade the scoopless RS hood for a stock WRX hood.
Get another set of wheels (18's on it now)
Replace the TBE with stock catted...probably keep the cat back (I can weld)
Get a retune....hopefully to be able to run 87 octane.
Eventually replace the brand new ISC coilovers with good springs and struts

Now......are your goals the same as mine? I sorta doubt it, but who knows.

Dom 3xtr 8cm 2.4. Thanks for the input guys it always nice to have a few other ideas besides my own. I'm gonna bite the bullet, do the e85 and go for 500
