Found out why stinkbugs have their name. Left my drill on the back porch for a week or two and when I fired it up today I found that there were several living in the motor impeller. They exploded cold nasty bugflesh all over me and my clothes. I can't get the smell off my hands. It's like raw burger and fishguts. Ugh!

I am using oem pistons and stock heads and I hate myself for it. Forged pistons and bore matching the heads to match the sti head gasket are a must.

E85 or meth can raise the knock threshold enough to release a lot of power but even then the full benefit of those mods will not be realized.

Correction. Pistons have nothing to do with knock resistance. They are a must to raise the durability and hp potential of the block .imo stock pistons are a liability over 350 whp. Stock rods over 450.

I know you won't be seeing this until after the pens game. I just happened to get day shift this week. I am about to enjoy the game as well. GO PENS !!!

Disagreed with the part in bold. Tentatively disagreed with the other stuff.

Thought you might. I know you have solved the ring gap thing but the stock pistons still are a liability imo. I have talked to a lot of hybrid owners who raised the knock threshold of ther motors considerably by getting rid of the mis match between the wrx heads and sti short block so i gotta go with that. Time will tell though. If you decide to leave your wrx heads alone we can compare how things turn out. I know that I am leaving horsepower on the table due to to that exposed ridge. Maybe that won't happen to you but it seems to be a common trend.

Oh yeah, how can you disagree that I am using stock pistons ? Unless the forged piston elves paid me a visit I most certainly am.

Ok my Pittsburg people. You alone pretty much carried me in round 1. Now with better photos, I have a shot at going further, but I would appreciate your votes again!

When/where you doign the work on yuor car? I would like to be around if possible, I want to start learning a bit more. Also, took my subaru out last night, it was making an awful racket, not sure if something was wrong or what, didn't have time to look into it, it started idling rough about a mile from home and felt like it was goign to stall at a red light.

I'll give you one more blind vote! But if you make it to the next round, I'm going to be voting based on the actual merits of the vehicles... just too many to read about at this point, GL.

If you vote on overall build. There is no question you'll vote for me or Jake15. If you like bling, drift or hellaflush...my car is not your choice. Now if you like an 11 sec legacy who sees tracktime and keeps up with vettes on the straights, I'm your guy.

guys.. I am looking for some info on an OBX front LSD. I can't find any that say they work with a 99 RS, most of them at 02-06 WRXs. Will those work in my car or do I need to continue looking?

Only info I have ever found on OBX is that they make crap parts. People say it looks like the internals are made of aluminum foil.

However as far as I can tell the 99 rs took the same diffs as the 02-06 wrx.

Have you ever seen one? Are you aware that Subarus have been using them for half a decade now? Hondas have been using them for even longer.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...bx+lsd&page=13

The fasteners may or may not be of high enough quality so you may have to drop a couple of Hamiltons on proper ones.

Still, 'aluminum foil'?

Nope, I haven't seen one, only researched them on honda, supra and rx7 forums, because I couldn't find much reliable info on Nasioc. In those three makes/models, everyone said they break with little amounts of power going thru them.

Nonetheless I did answer his question about it fitting.

Just throwing my own two sense in from the research I did.

thanks for the info and finding out. I pretty much came to that conclusion but wanted to find out for sure. Even if they can't take a ton of power, I hope they can take my little RS that is currently at 140tq and might get to close to 200whp but that's going to be a huge stretch.

Regardless, even if they do break they are 4 times cheaper than quaife.
