Default Homemade WRX's project build...the one that will never be done

To be honest this build has been completely funded from my own money, not my "daddies" (I've been good with money since I was young and this is kinda my your done will college now play present to myself).
It is all based off of my own work and designs. I have some really high goals for making power on my "phase 2" set up. I started the build to have a fun personal track car that would be capable of being a great time attack car with a strong and broad mid to top end torque curve. I since got power hungry as I figured someone has to try and catch up to AMS.

Phase 1: I'm just running a 35r to test the block, check some smaller things I wanted to test such as the 12mm oil pump, crank and main bearings and piston skirts. Finding the oiling systems redline you could say. This will be the time attack trim.

Phase 2: Way down the road but still laid out...we'll see what becomes of it. It'll be a drag setup just to see what it can make.

I've seen ads floating around for the Greddy V-manage, which supposedly can control Subaru AVCS. But I know nothing about it otherwise, and they're listing it at a somewhat pricey $629.

as for pics of the car....you aren't missing much. Just a beat up 94 L that is headed for the body shop once performance parts are in.

I have been thinking heavily about making my own oil pan but am really more interested in testing the limits of the factory system. I have thoughts and sketches on both wet and dry sumps but doubt I will bother with either for the initial build.

AEM can control AVCS too but no one has definitions for it...there are supposedly beta testing forms of it floating around...and $629 is not much considering everything else...my pistons cost more than that and they aren't even coated yet

hey slide (micah)
we had told ya a year ago you could control avcs by useing the wastegate tables if you were not useing that table
Kienan had experimented with it on his first engine and figured out how to get it to work

on a side note if aem or someone has found another way thats great also,now if they would just do some dbw system it would make alot of people happy

Hey Vmiz, I would be really interested in seeing the map if you guys don't mind. I think we have figured out a way to use the variable cam tables but I'm not totally sure yet. Ill be happy to send you guys the info I got from Gems as well if you would like.

and who said I was aiming for 40psi...I have a power goal
I'll hit 1000 or pop the motor. So you'll see a happy face or a "crap, time to do some more "learning"".

As for ports, I have my initial port job done and will heading to the flowbench once I get my adapter made. From there I will start developing. I might also be buying my own superflow sf600 so that will help get things going more quickly as far as head developement. The machine shop I use is getting ready to upgrade to a sf1020.
