I'm sure there are cheaper fabrication/welding guys in the valley, but with Kent, you can trust that it is done right the first time and every time. His work is top notch and you pay for that piece of mind. I've generally been disappointed when I choose the lowest cost bidder for a job.

One trip under the M3's he builds will let you know what he is capable of.

I'm using solid endlinks and plan on swapping over to the ball joint style to try to help but am not sure that alone will solve my issue.
I'm using the Hotchkiss wagon front sway bar. I'm using hemispherical end links and collars to keep the bar centered. Lastly, I'm using custom washers/spacers between the bar and the link and the link and the arm. There are some pictures a few pages back. So far, I have had no issues. The front end feels solid and planted. No noise or banging.

What doesn't fit right on yours?

The ones on the rack? I think they were these ones:

I threw out the packaging, but I'm pretty sure it is these. One of each. I modified mine slightly as described above in that section, but many guys run them as-is with no issues. Sometimes a new oring on the rack line helps a lot.

I've seen what you did to your GN, so I'll take that as a big compliment.

Helped Ken tune this beautiful wagon last night.

Color me impressed, there was no fight, no issues, just a smooth running car that loved to be tuned.

Ken, if you don't mind, here's the VD graph.

Feels that way too. I was literally shocked by the timing values we got away with on ACN91.

I picked up some interesting parts tonight:









I'm still not sure what my plans are for this project, or even the timeline, but the opportunity to pick these up presented itself. I got to cut the quarters oy which was kind of fun.

I'm thinking sedan factory widebody with 05-07 rear fender arches, STi side skirts, and CS bottom line kit all around. But we'll see what happens.

That's probably wider than I need to go. I want to fit 265's all around. I should be able to do that easily with the sedan widebody.

His wagon was so cool. I haven't seen it in years though.

Ken, if you don't mind, here's the VD graph.
Thank you for your help. I'm surprised what that little motor/turbo can do on pump and only 20 psi. I really can't wait to try 24-25 psi and e85.

Car ran great up to Vegas, but needs a bit of work on the high load/low RPM regions of the map as I was getting a bit of knock climbing up those hills into the Vegas valley. If I shifted down and brought the RPM up and reduced load, the knocking stopped.

You should have heard it on Las Vegas Blvd...

It's a lot of fun. Not the torque of the 2.5, but revs like a sport bike. No joke.

Baby steps. This probably won't happen until later this year as my wife would like to buy a house...

It might have been cheaper to cut a STI and make it a wagon at this point
