it is, and me too... believe me I had no intentions of selling the STi, just happen to come across this deal.... switched from the volk TE37s to the HRE's and did some detail work, other than that the car is mostly stock.

hah... well, even mostly stock it put down 350whp/360wtq on cobbs dyno, with a boost controller and exhaust, @ 10.2 AFRs, 17psi - clearly there is a LOT of power to be had with a tune and engine management

the truth is that it'll run to 140 faster than my STi did and for now it seems fast enough, my goal really is about 450-500whp with a real usable powerband - I'm thinking a GT3076R or GT35, possibly a PTE 6262 billet.... haven't really gotten that far yet

the real issue is traction, it'll spin the tires in 3rd gear if i'm not careful - not quite sure i'm gonna handle it on the road track... especially with more power.

Really good coilovers and some Hoosiers should do the trick. It's a different kind of animal, but racecars have been rwd for a really long time.

It's a good looking car. My next project is probably gonna be a Supra...but it's gonna have a twin-turbo bbc under the hood.

I liked the last ones better!

Looks sexy Zach and good luck cleaning those wheels!

Oh, and Zach is being way too modest. This is an anniversary edition to boot-the best evar!

Good luck!

The stock twins are fine, but spool SLOW if running in twin mode as opposed to sequential, the mid range powerband is lacking. If you run sequential you risk death on the road course as the 2nd turbo pops in at about 3800 RPMs and yo go instantly from like 9psi to 18.

a 42R is way way too big for my power goals, and the stock twins in twin mode spool too slow to make for good road course driving. even a 35R will make 600 wheel on this car, and a good T4 divided 3076 will hit an easy 525-550 at the wheels on moderate boost (18psi)

the billet 6262 is the biggest of all three of those, and people are claming it spools faster than a 35 while still providing plenty of breathing room up top.

I REALLY would like to see full boost in the low 3000s and good boost by 2500, I couldn't care less if my car runs out of breath above 6000 RPMs as most of my driving is somewhere between 2500 and 6000

Now, yes If I were going for a dyno queen of a supra, by all means 42R's on the list of 700+whp turbos

I have GOOD coilovers, not sure they are REALLY good - but they are the expensive Tein's, with EDFC... I think flex, can't remember now...

Yeah yeah, hoosiers, i know ... I figure I can fit a 295/30 or 315/30 hoosier on the rear and that would certainly help, the 295 BFG KDW2s will spil at 60mph already and that's with less than 400whp.... I Do know that the fastest road cars are rear wheel drive, but I've been driving subarus since the mid 90s with rarely a RWD or FWD car in between...

I figure the car as it sits is good for a low 12 quarter if i can hook, and would be only mildly slower around harris hill road course.

Man you don't need to do ANYTHING to that car, if it's an OEM silver 97 car, leave it as it sits - it looks great
