That 40 I said earlier.....MUST have been a typo. I meant 50

AFAIK, IF you hit that magic 1k mark....you will be the first. ARFab says they will do it....but that has been many many months ago. Was looking good for him at 675whp with the 40r....then they were switching to the 42r...but it hasn't happened.

g/l.....you're gonna need a little. BTW, are you stalked up on Karma?

yeah, my big limitation right now is the job hunt and possibility of moving...that would definately hinder progress.
That and I still need to buy my 4202R...that's a big ticket item.

I'm stocked up on Karma but don't know how to use it...luck never falls my direction so thanks for jinxing me

yeah, being a GC chassis, four door no less, I can barely tuck 235's. I would love to do fender flares but the rear doors kill that...and well, widebody kits for 4-door gc's aren't too common, add weight and are quite pricey to buy and have installed.
I'm already bummed that I have to add 80's of 6-speed tranny to the car.

careful parts selection and you could squeeze 245s on there

well, a parts list would be nice...aside from that, if we are getting that close...tire choice is more crucial...and I have yet to find drag slicks or radials in 245 with a nice outer diameter for my aimed trap speeds, as I have no real choice on gear ratio short of what the dog box comes in and 3.9 or 4.44

change the subject:
will post some new pics in a few.

ok, loaded some new pics. Tomorrow I start playing with the 12mm pump and sleeving my block
Might start playing with lightening the crank as well as balancing it.
Still waiting on rods to finish balancing the rest of the rotating assembly.

Oh, another update is my 6-spd drivetrain showed up yesterday. It and the twindisc should be going in this coming week, as well as doing a hydro clutch conversion I would keep the cable if I could simply because the pedal feel is so great!!
The alky and 35r might be going in too just to have a little fun on the good old EJ20 before she gets yanked (only if time allows).

yes, those are my case bolts.
arp and cosworth (ARP's) are no longer produced...at least under the arp name...
so I'm going to be picking up some Cobb one's shortly. still need to get my bearings too

as for rides, sure...I'm not sure where I'll be living 2 months from now though.

Possum Bourne Motorsport and Tony Rigoli Performance have 14mm head studs as well. Ron at Axis seems to think the new generation of ARP bolts are just as good as 14mm anyway...

What bearings are you using? I have been tossing up whether to go for Calico...

You can get whatever you want from ARP, you just have to be willing to pay for it. They will build you 14mm L19 head studs and I bet they are atleast a grand.

Micah,

did you do the porting yourself? How do you know where the coolant jacket is? Did you portmatch it to the oem intake/exhaust gaskets....I assume? Do you have any JDM 'bigport' heads to compare your intake ports to?

usdm sti heads...I have a rough idea of the coolant jacket distance. I'm going all the work myself except; the gearset install and some of the machine work, hence the name homemade wrx
the intakes are actually slightly larger than the gasket to use the gasket/tgv section to help reduce reversion and stand off.
The exhaust I left at 1.5" outlet for exhaust manifold design reasons. I also did a very light job on the straight port to see how close I can get the dogleg and straight ports to be.

ARP will make you what you want so long as you order x amount. I've been told x = 120 sets.
Yes, I know other places carry 14mm but they all are overseas. I may just go ahead and test the 11mm arp's to see what they can take. Regardless though, when I teardown the motor for the o-ringing, to check skirts and bearing and put the 42r on, 14mm studs are going in!! To make 1000whp I will have some rediculously high cylinder pressures.

Bearing choice; I'm still a bit torn on company and treatment/coating. Of course the main concern being rod bearings.. I'm looking at ACL's and straight calico's as well as various coatings and debating wpc treatment on certain parts of the engine.

Are you flow testing your heads soon?

I've just had my old ported 98 WRX heads flowed and have sets of stock JDM 06 Legacy GT and JDM 00 STi (big port) heads in being tested now.

I'd be keen to see how yours flow compared to these...

Have you thought of using gas rings?

Well, as it turns out, I will most likely be buying my own SF600 so, I'd be game to flow them...start a whole sticky thread on what heads flow what.

It will be nice, no more driving out to ODU's labs to flow bench

What happened to the turbo H6 idea?

Fitting 245's on a GC isn't really that bad, the rear fenders just need a little massaging. I have a set of 245-45R16 Hoosier A6's sitting in the garage waiting on some new wheels.

hey sean, the H6 twin turbo was for a prototype car project I was working on for a rich investor. He chose a seven of us from the FSAE to do what we knew best and did on the Formula team. It ended up falling through as Quafie will never finish revising one of there transaxles and our suspension man has moved to Alabama.
I may end up playing with the EZ30 another time though.

Sweet dude. Simultaneous builds! Can't wait to compare results.
Oh and slap steve for me (blackevo110), I haven't been able to do that in a year and I really miss it.

For those that don't know:
Micah and I have been planning these builds for over a year and a half now. We both have crunched many a number and speculated on what should go where. Micah has been more mathematical and I've been more theoretical. It's probably funny to hear us talk.

We both have very similar builds going on. I am using another variant of our calculations. My rods are longer than stock by a large margin, but not as long as Micah's (let the jokes ensue). I am also running smaller pistons (why god why?). My build is targeted more towards the street driven car with insane power and RPM range without the need to go sleeved. Where Micah's is the track/drag monster with a sleeved block and eventually a dry sump oiling system. We are trying to get all the bases covered with these.
Other variations include our turbo choices. Mine is going to be built and tested on two different turbo setups.
One is a twin GT28 setup.
Other is a Garrett T04Z.

My stack of parts isn't quite the same size. I still need a few things associated with the heads, but I have block, rods (Carillo), pistons (TWE), oil pump (12mm), bearings, Hydra (that works better than your broke ass AEM, Micah!!), and one turbo.
TWE has had a small hand in my build as well. They are building two variations of the engine up in canada as we speak.

Going to be a fun year!
