What does your wife have? When are you going to bring that beast out to the meets again? I know youve been in the field like most of us but this is my last week. This weekend we will be taking a drive downtown to Kipps Cheesesteaks, Harry checked it out today so I'm just waiting on his thoughts lol

Probably not this weekend, since I've got plans to do some work on her (the car) this weekend. Maybe next weekend. Wife drives a Toyota Corrola, and according to research it is 5x100, so I shall see how they fit when my Braids come.

Hey hows it going, I am the "organizer" of EPAWD so if you havent already you should take a look at the forum and register so you know of stuff upcoming in advance.

epawd.forumotion.com

Anyways, sounds like it will be a pretty quick little bugeye, however, do you have forged internals if you are still running an EJ205? If not, a 20g on that 2.0 might create a little issue due to the elevation and thinness of the air up here. I had my motor built over 9 months and it took me only 5 months to spin a bearing due to so much blow by here in El Paso. Invest in a breather if you dont already have one.

During July a lot of us may be at NTC or JRTC however for those of us who are not I will try to get a barbecue together so that a lot of you who are new here to Bliss will have a chance to meet everyone else in the group. Like I said, check out the EPAWD forum and register and look forward to meeting you guys.

Anyone in need of some UEL headers and catless uppipe w/EGT fitting for 02-07 WRX? Headers are AMK and unknown brand uppipe (AMK, SRS perhaps). The fit was actually spot on. Only reason I removed them was because I wasn't tuned for them, had no intention to get tuned, and would rather have the stock setup. Figured I would try in here before posting them in FS section and craigslist.

Can you explain how blow-by caused a rod bearing to spin? You likely spun a bearing because you had other problems not due to blow-by. A 20G is ok to run at this elevation and even higher, it'll just be laggier (if that's a word) on a 2L.

I can see severe blow-by leading to knock, causing excessive force on your rods then spinning a bearing because of knock. Not blow-by Just wondering. Maybe someone told you that, not sure.

Cam has told me that if we get the cars together he has no issue with making the trip down and tuning for those that may want it.
Yup nice! He comes down quite often, in fact he was just here a couple weekends ago. Just got tuned from him again, made some good power Get a couple cars that you know of. I have 1 right now that's here and I'm sure he'll come down.

Hey dude, where is that dyno? You can PM me if you want

I am still working on the particulars for the dyno. As soon as I have a complete picture of the situation I will share it with all. Stay tuned I have a feeling this is gonna get huge when I get it all together.

Here are the headers and uppipe. Have no use for them. Shoot me some offers. Will be posting on craigslist by the weekend.

Only thing i'd be willing trade for is some stock F&R sway bars for 02-07 WRX. Front has to be from a wagon though.
