Get a different car!!, like a corvette "great lil autocrosser" Id rather autocross a vette anyhow. If you wanna road race. and have the cash to blow, buy the 150k subaru rally car and build an engine for it... A wrx is a great street car, and a very fun toy, my dream car for the street!! But if your driving your toy to autocrosses, You are prone to failure. Real race teams have a few good motors on stand by. Buy a miata. . .
If you reall wanna kick the rear out, Try getting an sti tranny and changing your power to the rear wheels. Dont try to change what the car is designed for , just to suit your power needs. You could probably even get an corvette engine swap, if you really want that low end torque feel. Ive seen multiple shops working on this swap as we speak. .
Uhhmm...not even sure how to respond to that. Don't know if you have never been to an autocross, or if you are just SERIOUSLY misinformed.

The wrx is an excellent autocross and rallycross cars. The wrx and the evo have dominated several national classes since they both came to the US in 2003. Autocross isn't all 90 degree corners, it's about momentum, and carrying it thorough the whole course.

Autocross is a grassroots sport, everyone drives their cars to the autocross, LOL....usually not a professional $150K car and spare engines kind of thing. I actually don't drive my subaru everyday, i have several cars and the subaru is pretty much relegated to race and weekend duty.


Anyway, i came into the thread to get the contact information for you Ed. I'm gonna be sending my heads in and wanted to speak with you.

bump for one of the best shops! I wish I could afford to do the hybrid with my current motor rebuild but my son and house come before the car now. i'll be seeing you in a month or so when my car is all back together and ready to be re-tuned.

Define "pushed"... my heads have these. I was planning on running a hta 68 but i maybe stick with a vf39 or something close. power before i tore the motor apart was 307awhp and 340awtq. if im + or - 10whp Thats all im looking for . If these heads are no good then plan is shot.. tia

It really depends on how bad the cracks are. If they extend all the way to the valve seat, I would not use them.

Default Bump this thread

My brain hurts thinking about how to deal with this.

ver 5 motor, heads great, SB spun a rod. So I have a forester xt sb and want to use these big port ver 5 heads to full affect. Send them off and c&c or get a good porter to smooth out the lip. I think I know the right answer, but what do you think.

It depends on the fuel you'll be running. If you have enough octane to support the increased CR, you can just smooth out the edges. Otherwise, its really best to machine the chamber to bring the CR back down.
