Hey guys just a little background. I have an 11 STi sedan with roughly 17k miles on it. Going on motor number 5. Not going to get into it or anything, but I'm starting fresh on this one.

Currently, the car is at Rallispec in West Berlin NJ. Dave will be building the motor. The car is almost fully assembled and break-in will start soon.

I'm looking to hit roughly 500whp on Pump93 and roughly 600whp on E85. I've spent a lot of time and money in this car and am really hoping to get the result I want out of it this time around.

Damn dude 4 motors?! What happened? Good luck on the current build doesn't look like you've skimped on anything.

Well, I'm counting stock motor, which is give, but I blew up 2 fully built motors in the matter of 10k miles. Just weren't built properly.

Thanks dude. No, I didn't skip anything this time other then maybe a few minor things.

I'm at the same spot man. Had one bad shortblock and I couldn't imagine going though it all again let alone 3 times. Went with a fully assembled element tuning longblock so hopefully no more issues. If this doesn't work I'm selling the damn car and buying a GT500 haha.

Should have no issues hitting it, but I think the limiting factor is gonna be your cams. A build that big I'm surprised you did not choose to go with the S3s.

Any reason? Looks well thought out though. Didn't realize how tiny the Dom series was. ... though the 3.5 can hit damn near of not get there (600hp)

What kind of boost do you think you'll be running? Overall though build looks good man I hope you enjoy it..600 is fun

Well my previous setup the heads got damaged so I went ahead and built the heads for the dom4, not expecting to go bigger anytime soon. So the s2's were already in the car and I wasn't dishing out another 1000 for s3's. With the s2's I will have a little better spool but it will rob me a tad top end, not really too worried about that.

I didn't realize how small the dom4 was either until i compared it to the 6266 JESUS! For one of the bigger stock location turbos, that thing is tiny. loll

I'm going to push for low/mid 30's on E85 (depending on how the car reacts) and prob mid/high 20's on pump93.

I can't wait, and thanks!

Got off the phone with Manley today, Turbo Tuff I_beams won't be done until Thursday :/ So looks like it's going to be delayed some more. But w.e. as long as it's strong and powerful in the end!

Got the rest of my parts in today. Koyo Radiator, Koyo Radiator Cap, Samco Radiator Hoses and Agency Power Fuel Rail Kit.

Will be taking a ride to Rallispec tomorrow to drop off all the parts to Dave and let him do his thang. Still waiting on Manley for the Turbo Tuff I-Beams, but hopefully they are done tomorrow too. Hopefully the car is up and running by early next week!!

Well took a ride to Rallispec today to drop off all the parts. They now have everything except the Manley Turbo Tuff I-Beams which will be shipped out tomorrow (should be there by Monday). Once they have everything Dave is going to get started on the reassembly right away and hopefully aiming for late next week/weekend for the car to be ready for break-in miles.

On the other hand, I got to see all the damage from the last blow-up.....

Here's some pics

Doesn't look soo bad...


Let's get a little closer look..


yeah it's destroyed


Other then the bad, here's a few shots of the new setup.

New block with Darton Sleeves




Freshly Done Heads


New Cosworth Pistons


New K1 Billet Crank


Agency Power Fuel Rail Kit (not really happy with the products)

Looks great so far I was and am in the same boat now planning motor # 3.
Mps this time with a outfront closed deck block.

I have the ETS kit also with a gtx3576r

Can't wait for numbers .

What kind of pricing for head work at head games I am looking to decide that option or buy MPS heads also.

Yeah man, thanks! Your build seems intense too!!

Uhm, tbh, I don't remember what I even paid for everything. because I did everything all at once. Pocket port, valves, springs retainers, cams, etc. But you gotta price out what parts you want to go with then I think they charge like $2000 w/o cams. Not 100% sure.

Did your nitrided oem crank fail, or was the damage caused by low oil pressure? been seeing members posting that the newer nitrided cranks tend to fail once you up the power on the motor.

Low oil pressure. I had a lot of problems with the motor with balancing and oil pressure and what not. It's not very common for the new nitrated cranks to do this, but I just went the extra step and got the billet K1 crank.

Default opinions on the ETS Front mount

Jaunch,

Do you have any opinions on the ETS FM? Was it easy to put in? Any cutting, or other work needed to fit it? (Just the usual?)

Did your tuner remark on any pressure drop, or other spool time issues?

For the cost would you recommend?

Thanks,
Chris.

ETS makes an awesome kit for our cars! My stuff is not yet in the car so I can't say yet. Only bumper cutting is necessary. It is said to bolt right in. Car isn't tuned yet. As soon as it is ill post up my results and opinion. There kits are very expensive though.

Looks like a solid build man!

I hate to be the bringer of bad news but I highly doubt you are going to hit 600whp with that fuel setup... Needs more fuel pump and bigger lines

You're the first person to tell me that. Everyone including 4 tuners told me I'll hit 600whp with that fuel setup with no problem.

The walboro 465 hard wires can produce some nice pressure and supply the car with a lot of fuel.

I've also seen 1 or 2 other similar setups like mine, just 465 and OEM lines that made 608+.

Worst case scenario, I'll get some -6/-8 lines all the way back. I think the walboro 465 hard wired will be plenty though.

But we shall see....

It will be close. Manitou hit damn near 600 if not 600 with his hardwired. You'd have to ask him what his IDC was ON ID1300s.

Those darton sleeves are so nice man! Sweet build!

What made you chose your spring rate setup with the back being stiffer than the front? Did you just want it to rotate easier?

I don't know man...

Just for reference, I made around 521whp I believe with a hardwired DW300, inline walbro up at the rails and FIC 2150 injectors... You are just gonna be really pushing that setup to the limit I would think based on how much power my car made as we upgraded the fuel system... Not saying it can't happen, just slightly doubtful with single pump and stock lines :-\

You are getting tuned at EFI logics right?
