Default FineLine - 2006STI APS TSR 70 Reverse Intake Manifold

A while ago a good customer came to us with his brand new completely stock 2006 STI and told us he wanted to add some more power and better handling. The first thing we recommended was a stage 2 power package. His response to me was I was looking for a little more power then stage 2 so I asked how much more he said about 500 whp and so this project was born. After over a year a lot of money and a lot of hard work this project is coming together and nearing completion. This customer is a stickler for details and wanted nothing but the highest quality parts for his car so COBB, APS, KW and many more suppliers were called on to deliver the car you see below.

Engine:
COBB pro-series sleeved short block.
COBB pro-series stage 3 CNC ported header with bigger valves
Cosworth 274-278 cams
Cosworth 12mm oil pump
ARP head studs
APS DR725 FMIC
APS TSR 70 turbo kit
APS rotated mount intake
APS BOV
APS fuel rails
APS aux fuel rails
APS 3.5in turbo back
APS header with header wrap
APS TGV deletes
Tial 44mm waste gate
COBB main pulley
PE 850cc primary injectors (4)
Bosch 600cc aux injectors (4)
walbro 255lph fuel pump
Aeromotive A1000 external fuel pump
Aeromotive external fuel filter
Aeromotive fuel pump controller
Aeromotive adjustable bypass regulator
FLI custom fuel surge tank
FLI custom reverse intake manifold pipes.
LINK G4 stand alone ECU
Aquamist HFS-5 kit
Spec-C 12 liter tank


Suspension:
KW V3 coilovers
COBB front and rear sway bars
Whiteline Anti-lift kit
Factory BBS wheels for now




Old engine out of the car and APS FMIC core mounted


COBB Pro series motor. This motor uses 100mm Forged JE pistons, COBB rods, COBB main and rod bearings, darton sleeves and is balanced and blueprinted.







COBB CNC heads with the Cosworth cams



Completed and assembled long block



Engine all the way back together for the most part and the start of the reverse intake manifold mock up.







These are some of the pic of the revers intake manifold being built by us here at the shop. On one of the pipes we made some notches to accommodate keeping the AC and still leaving no chance of it rubbing on the hood or the AC. All pipes have been sent out for final powder coating and will be back shortly.



This brings you up to date on what we have done with the car so far I will be updating this thread as the days go by and we make some more headroom. As always if you have any questions about the car or anything we have done please let me know.

Nice build.
<-- Same turbo kit, same FMIC, same heads/cams, different bottom end and I opted not to go with the reverse mount IC piping.

What hotside are you planning on running? The .82 is a spooly, quick beast, but puts the brakes on around 6700RPM. The 1.06A/R housing (now an option direct from APS [I had to source mine elsewhere and get some custom work done on the outlet to get the 3.5" Vband DP to mate]) won't thin out unless you take your foot off the gas.

This is the .82 hot side right now. If for some reason we don't hit our hoarse power goals or he decides to upgrade we will put the larger one on. We are at the current time trying to keep lag to a minimum as this is more of a daily driver/weekend track car.

What made the customer choose a COBB engine over others? Any idea? Or even you guys stage 3 block?

The reason I ask is because in the past I heard their motors had reliability issues?

At the time we ordered the engine we were still working on our own stage 3 motors and they were not ready to be sold. In the past several of us here at the shop including myself have run COBB engines as well as our customers and ran into no problems what so ever. It was only the next logical step having good luck with there motors to have them build the one for this car.

Well it took the better part of two months just to get the short block here. I would say we have had the car here for a little over a year now. Its one of our longest term projects we have ever had.

Looks stunning mate. Really nice job

In the beginning we had a different plan on how we were going to make the IC piping so we were using part of the APS kit later on we realized to make it fit properly with the AC still there we would have to completely make both pipes from scratch. the two notches on the back of the pipe are not so drastic that I am worries about air flow into the motor. The over all size of the pipe is decently big as well.

At the time I do not have those pictures. The pipes are out getting powder coated crinkle red along with the intake manifold and intake so there all one color. When they get back ill snap some pictures for you.
