I am anxious to see what else you've got up your sleeve, especially since my motor is also already black.

I've loved your other projects, so I am sure this one won't disappoint!

Le Chat Noir is the "official" name, it is usually spoken of as "the black cat". It is/was in Fairhaven. Just up from the Colophon Cafe, on whatever State st. turns into in Fairhaven.

I'll be PM'ing you sometime soon.

Well I worked late into the night and got the hardlines done a day early. Used a 10an to 2 8an Y block mounted to the engine and ran 8an or 1/2" hardline through the Aeromotive rails to the Aeromotive Regulator where I am running a 6an return. I had to grind down the APS Tumbers to fit the giant RC injectors but I mad it work and when the rails needed spacers to fit them so its pretty cramped.

Here are the Hardlines, everything came out really nice and its going to make for a nice sturdy point to attach my wiring too. The rearward line looks goofy in the pics but it drops down and then s curves though the blocks breather lines. I have made sure to clear all the ports I need and if you look where the lines enter and exit its all over the tranny. Everything that comes off the engine will come off over the tranny and there will be nothing in the engine bay but engine, intercooler pipes and a monster turbo.




I had an old Stock A/C Pump to check clearence on the forward drivers side line but I have one of the new smaller 09 WRX A/C pumps coming so it should fit nicely. Got the stock wiring harness de-loomed so I can set it in and move everything around so it goes where it should always have gone. I'll have pics of those Monday. The Turbo was pre-installed to check clearance but I took it back off to do the wiring and I still need gaskets so I'll have pics of the turbo back on soon.

I don't know if I am a fan of the fuel hardlines. I like my braided ones much better. I do like everything all blacked out though, should be sweet.

What turbo kit is that? looks like TXS or something which requires an up pipe adapter for the turbo to sit rotated. I don't think that's really effecient, i'd change that!

Johann, have you ever seen the pics of my rear?

I opted to go hardlines because it was cheaper then steal braid and I had steal braid on my car before and I really didn't like it. I like to have things secured and tight on the engine not just bobbing around. I also like that I can run the line exactly where it needs to go and it can be taken off and re-installed very quickly. I am trying for more of an OE type of setup just amplified to the extreme. Also I always prick my fingers working with steal braid and I'm tired of it. It gives me a nice sturdy point to anchor my wiring and a nice template to have my breather and vacuum lines to.

I have seen your rear end with your shinny diff cover and I am very jealous of it. I opted to paint mine black because you can really never see it and I am a big fan of showing off the parts that are aftermarket, not the ones that everybody already has and has seen a bunch of times. You have put way more work into the details into your drive train then I have. Your motor and diff are works are art and look much better then mine but its a different look and a different budget. I spent my money on a munched STi and and a bunch of parts so I can probably assume that in the end your car will be more baller. This project is a race car first with a Showcar quality built into it so I can show it but its main goal is to be tracked and to be used for product development and testing for Girodisc.

My old wagon was more blingy and everything stood out and when I look at it now all I see is how cluttered it looks with all the wires standing out because they are red and the Steal Braided lines just going all over the place and for this car I want a clean look, thats efficient and functoinal. Something that looks heavily modified but could look like it was made by some company that builds supercars in a barn somewhere in Europe.

Turbo is Turbonetics GTK650 with a modified TBXS kit. The flanges were bored out and I re-welded it to make the turbo lower and tighter to the engine. Also the upper flange was changed and the DP was thrown out. I used ARP studs to bolt the up-pipe flanged together and I have a copper gasket for it. I opted for this kit because I didn't like the way most rotated kits mount their turbos so low so that you have to wedge the intake pipe between the motor and strut tower so a 3" is the best you can fit comfortably in there. My turbo has a 4" inlet so I plan to use a 4" intake pipe and filter. I also like the fact that I can remove the turbo at the lower flange and get super easy access to the wastegate if I need to make any adjustments to it. If it promotes itself as a weak point at that flange I can just cut them off and weld pipe in there. It also allows me to use the stock bracing to keep the turbo steady.

Its kinda of in pieces with no pannels on it because of the stitch welding I did so it doesn't really look like anything that resembles a car but I want to keep my build on focus with the engine, then suspension, then we'll get to the body when I get some of the body pannels on it to mount the intercooler, and radiator. I am going to redo the core support from scratch.

I assume your talking about my wagon. Yeah it wasn't everyone's cup of tea and there were many threads of people calling it "rice" and other saying it was the greatest wagon they have ever seen. For most it was to much, over the top and that was the goal. I wanted something wild and crazy that not many would have thought to do and it made for a great car which I miss everyday and it won me a lot of trophies. I can assure you that this car will not have the same vibe as my old wagon so rest assured.
