i haz planz.

Maybe see how far the stock motor will go? It definitely needs a clutch, so do I do both at the same time? I guess tax season will tell.

^^ Would highly recommend not blowing up your motor and then rebuilding it. Getting metal flake throughout your oiling system is no bueno. Could jeopardize your rebuilt motor.

And def, do both at once if you can.

Why not just buy a 09+ STi short block. You can get them brand spankin new for $2k and they hold good power.

Yes yes I know. I'm not looking to blow anything up. I have an 09+ OEM short block, as I have an 09 STi.

Car is a stock block 09 STi with about 440-460 whp on e85, a new OEM block obviously wont cut it. Have run a larger turbo/supporting mods for about 20k miles now.

I would imagine you'd be better of doing a set of drop-ins before you actually blow it up.

I think i'm just going to go with the Rallispec block when its time. Pistons, bearings, rods and hone matched bores.

This way I can turn the wick up on the turbo at 27 psi and make some power.

Yes sweetheart, we've already had this conversation 100's of times and you know my stance on this as well. If it's gonna come apart i'll do it right the first time.

SEARS - DieHard Automotive + Marine Batteries 20% off + Free Battery Box + Free In-Store Pick-up
Sears.com offers 20% off DieHard Automotive and Marine Batteries [sears.com] as part of their deal of the day.
*Must add to cart to see discounted price.

There also seems to be a "free battery box" offer with battery purchase, See details below.

Free Battery Box offer:

Free Battery box with purchase of Deal of the Day battery! Offer ends 28-Jan-2013.

Must add both battery and battery box to the cart to receive the Free Battery Box!
Eligible battery boxes are as follows: http://www.sears.com/standard-batter...=4485850&aff=Y

Or, http://www.sears.com/large-battery-b...=4485850&aff=Y

Internationally Shipped Orders are excluded. Offer good through 28-Jan-2013


In-store pickup is free. Note you must pickup at the Auto Department or Automotive Center, not the regular Merchandise Pick-up area.

Installation is usually extra if you don't have the time or the tools to do it yourself.




This is a great deal for their regular DieHard Gold line, which comes with a fairly standard 3 year warranty, with 100-month pro-rated replacement for under $100 for most sizes.

But it's a REALLY good deal for their top-of-the line DieHard Platinum series batteries, which are in fact rebadged, grey-container AGM Odyssey batteries made in the USA by EnerSys. The Odyssey batteries go for $300-400 or so for the exact same battery with the exact same internals. AGM means absorbed glass mat, which basically means the battery is a "dry cell" and won't leak acid, even if you break open the battery with a sledge hammer, or shoot it with an elephant gun. You also will never have to clean the battery terminals, as AGM batteries don't corrode them. The Platinum line comes with an unheard of 4-year full replacement warranty, with 100-month prorated coverage.

If you want AGM but don't want to pay the steep price of the Platinum, they do make a DieHard Advanced Gold Battery in some limited sizes, for around $100-150, which is between the regular lead-acid Gold and AGM Platinum in price. Availability of this Advanced Gold seems rather limited, probably only in larger stores or auto centers.

You can usually buy online if you know the Group size you need (use the battery selector link below), and knock another $5 off using the SEARS2012, SEARS2013, or VALPAK5 $5 off $50 code (plus save the hassle of debating with the salesperson over what vehicle it's for), or buy in-store if you have a bigger discount coupon.

Correct, it is. That's why the built motor conversation has been arisen by Greg0r! Obviously breaking a rod would be the worst case scenario, punching a whole through the block, causing metal to go everywhere and damaging the head.

But i'm not at a crazy power level, I think the likely failure would be a broken piston, if it isn't already, sandwiched against the piston and cylinder, causing some scoring.

I've been in talks with Rallispec. Let's see what happens!

Anybody have any experience with Danbury Autowerks on East Hayestown Road? I'm going to change my dual muffler catback into a custom single outlet system and I found them, just wondering.

I overheard someone once say that they were rubbish but I have no first hand experience. If this is the same shop I'm thinking of that does a lot of engine rebuilding, that is.

I LOVE these deals. I always use them when I need parts or tools. Sometimes I use them even if I don't really need anything but just to stock up on supplies I go through a lot of like latex gloves, brake cleaner etc. They're great for items that never go on sale too. Good way to get a battery cheap too. Combine it with their free shipping for orders over $75 and you don't even have to get out of bed.

Just walked in and asked about the exhaust job I wanted done. The guy asked if I wanted aluminum or stainless. I said, "Well the aluminum will probably rust right?" and he had a look on his face like he hadn't even thought of that possibility. Then I described what I wanted and asked for a ballpark estimate to get it done and he's like "Uh two-hundred, three-hundred, not sure." $300 for taking 2.5 feet of aluminum piping, making a couple bends and a little welding? Not sure if I'll be going back...

You are surprised by that? You are looking them to custom fab a section of pipe.

Between the measuring, bending, fitting, cutting, welding, and making it all work with your existing setup is going to be a PITA. While I am not saying that they are the place to do it, I'd be surprised if you can find someone to do it for less.

For stainless, I could see that price. I imagined a quote involving 2.5" diameter aluminum piping would be cheaper than that.

Brew not too much just trying to source a new bumper to mold my kamanari lip to and to mount my orcari side vents and fogs. If I do part with anything I will let you know just got rid of my skirts with aero guards to grab some chargespeed skirts.

I need to get 205/40-17s mounted on to 17x8.5 wheel. Any suggestions in the Danbury area? EFI says to much stretch for them to mount it.
