Respectfully, that's a high pressure zone so at speed, it likely does not work.

See if you and Adam can talk Porter into it too... I pitched the idea to him about 2 weeks ago but never got a solid response from him...

It would be good to be back up there with some of the "old" NASIOC members

Still can't decide on 245s or 255s. Mainly has to do with the slight poke in the rear with my 255s (Direzza SS Z1s, now looking at Z2s). I noticed the tire hit the rear wheel well edge a few times (oddly enough last year at the Dragon). I was debating on buying the 245s to see if there is a difference. Should I just buy rear camber plates and deal with the 255s that way? Decisions, decisions.

i vote 255s + camber adjust

i would run 255s if i had wide enough rims, i dont care if i have to shoehorn them in

Haha. That was my thought. I REALLY dug the 255s last season. Just means I'll have to spend more fairy dust. Drat.

Fair enough. My only woe is the same as leaving the hoodscoop on when running a fmic.. That's a whole other debate that I wont get into.

I'll just leave it at ( I think ) venting should be done in the front of the hood in the low pressure area to both exhaust hot air but also promote flow through the radiator and or any other front mounted cooling device.

Nice car and pics though. I'm not hating, just voicing my opinion.

255's are where it's at but don't mess up your camber bias to fit them. I'd say fender work > rear bias -camber, all day.

Also Z2's are amazing. Waaay better than z1's but they'll be discontinued soon in preperation for the Z2 star spec to be released at the end of the year... So get em while you can!

Blew a ring in my 2005 STi, and i'm in the process of rebuilding it all. I'm not anticipating any issues, and I've spent a lot of time doing research as to the proper way of doing things, but it would be helpful having a second pair of eyes/hands when assembling the shortblock / throwing the heads on.

Doing a 99.75 CP piston with torque plate honing from Engine Lab. BC H-beams and Kings Rod / Main bearings. Planning on a GTX3076 / top-feed conversion a couple of months after assembly.

Should be assembling within the next month or so.

sure man, i have quite a bit to do on my own car as well as a few others that are going on the trip, but if our schedules line up i dont have a problem giving you a second set of eyes on it.

im interested to see how those BC H beams hold up, i'm considering the BC I beams for my build. I was pretty dead set on the turbo tuffs as we have had good experience in our builds with them, but the BCs are like 50g lighter per rod and JR (the tuner) is running 10 flats at 143mph on them with a 6466....hard to argue that.

I think JR said the H-beams were solid as well. With that big daddy turbo 6466, i'm sure those I-beams will do well ha ha.

Perfect - May be before the dragon run, though. Hopefully we'll find a time that lines up.
