Thought about it but $$. People have been at a much higher boost and power level with similar setups. I just need to find the right combo.

Tuner says to check torque on head studs. If they are indeed down on torque after head gasket compressed after a few heat cycles, I will do some testing again to see if it pushes coolant still. I would be so happy if it's an easy fix like that.

Next step would be cosworth gaskets.

damn, you were spraying coolant for awhile in that vid. i am surprised you didnt see it, but i guess the camera on the side of the car was further out than your line of vision, and you were focused on the race. did it do any serious damage?

Yeah, I sit very low in the car. Eyes barely over the dash. No damage as far as I can tell.

New quick release uprights for the Kognition wing. Now I can have it off when I drive on the street and better access to the trunk :P





Also car is at the body shop getting rear bumper repaired from when I got rear ended. Front flares are getting painted at the same time. Hopefully have the car back Tuesday.

Yesterday I took the engine apart to check torque on the head studs. Inner bolts were still tight at 115. Outer ones were initially at 105 but were down to around 95ish. Probably dropped less than 10.

Will try changing rad cap to see if I get any bubbles in overflow tank still.





lots of work just to get to a few nuts


25mm spacers on a 18x10.5 +18 with 295's


mexi-flush!


fixed! lol

Kartlon fenders are the best. I wanted to grab some for mine, but I decided not to go so aggressive this year. Stuck with SBC RPF1s 18x9.5 +15. I just recently got my sti finished. I did Eagle Rods, Weico Pistons,ID2000s,Precision 6262,ARP Head Studs,Gates Racing Timing Belt, Gasket set,TGV Deletes,Agency UQL Header,ACO Race bearings, Stock Manifold, No cams,Walbaro 400, E85 fuel, 30psi..Open source (Speed Density) tuned by a local guy here named Jason Carberry. I'm sure im forgetting some stuff but it's 6AM lol. I was gonna do some cams, but at that point I was just sick of spending money lol Maybe next year..Love your car btw been following you for awhile you are what really motivated me to build mine.

PS. Where did you buy your ViPec V88 Standalone ECU from?

Somewhere between -2.8 and -2.9 in the front and if I remember correctly about -1.8 in the back.

Had a great track day on Friday with turn2lapping @ Pacific Raceway.

Lots of seat time that day... so much in fact that the brakes took a beating and I corded 2 tires. It was good fun! In my 5th 30 minute session about 11 or 12 laps in the brakes finally gave out on turn 8. Also happened to have my girlfriend riding shotgun for the first time on the track in my car


Downside is the head gaskets are definitely leaking. Pushing about 300mL into the overflow every 30 minutes.

Will pull the motor out soon and change out the **** cometic gaskets for cosworth ones.

Just did the head gaskets in my car 4 events ago. Was using normal ARP head studs and cosworth gaskets (this is what came in the Cosworth motor) I upgraded to Cosworth H11 studs with the same gaskets.


Was pushing coolant under boost. Yes it was rich, it's better now.

How much boost were you running on the track?

Also what thickness are you using?

Is the problem fixed now?
