I was thinking about it, but didn't want to risk knocking a piece of tin into the oil and sending it through my motor. I have bad luck LOL.

I actually started (just last night) putting a filter over my funnel to catch anything that MIGHT be in the oil.

Should have some numbers this week/next week. Probably going to be VD numbers, will have reall dyno numbers the following week. I'm going to Pocono Raceway next weekend for a track day, so need to get on this tuning crap ASAP.

Grabbed a front 22mm whiteline front swaybar to go with the rear 24mm x-blade I had already for the rear (not installed). JNZ tuning came and picked them up from me this morning at work and will be powdercoating them white, and the braces teal like my intercooler piping.

Going to start tuning tonight/tomorrow for WOT pulls. Need to get the car ready for the race at Pocono next weekend.

Really awesome build. One of the few I keep checking back on waiting for numbers

What is your overall satisfaction with the Torque Solution products? I am in the process of sourcing out quotes on the suspension overhaul I'm doing this winter while the car is down, and have been looking into the Torque Solution motor mounts, trans mount, and pitch stop mount. Just figured I would see if you had any feedback as you have run these parts on roughly the same application as I plan to..

Pardon my critical mind. This is intended to be a track car only? That idle is mighty rough, what type of management are you using?

I love the build and the quality of the pictures. It's so important to do what one loves in life. It's clear you've been doing just that.

I'm using Cobb Accessport with Accesstuner basically mimicking a standalone system I'm using the main sensors and that is pretty much it, speed density as well . Video showing idle is as soon as I got it back from getting the exhaust tig'd together with only 7 miles on it. Its been fine tuned since then. I daily the car right now as I'm doing some work on my truck. Idle is great at 975rpm's and the drivability is getting better everyday with small changes. Tuning goes a long way.

It will eventually be my track only car, but I still have to purchase a CTS-V Wagon before I can get myself to gut and cage my STi. When that time comes, I'm sure I will swap the turbo out for a HTA3794 with the same housing then pull the block and do some block mods and some billet steel rods for 600whp. I'll make sure you guys are updated at all times! Haha.

Cheers,
Adam

Great stuff, I have basically everything they make for my STi. If you need their products drop me a pm with the stuff you need and I'll get you setup with a vendor to purchase from at a good price.

I'm not going to lie, my favorite mods besides the power **** is the engine mounts.

Hey Adam

Very nice build. Similar to what i am planning to do over the winter.

I have couple questions;

How do you like the Cobb Speed density tune ?

You spend some serious cash on parts but why did you go with MAnley H beams instead of I beams ?

Are the H beams you used stronger versions ?

Thanks for the complement. I have never had any issues with H-beams from Manley in my career and I have used a ton of them. The weight of the rod was also appetizing for my build plans. I would of definitely considered an i-beam if I was planning on making more than 500whp on this setup. When the time comes to need more power, this setup will be dropped in a wagon for daily use. Then a new 2.5 build will happen with block mods as mentioned above, paired with the same turbo kit but a HTA3794.

The Cobb Speed Density tune is stellar. I can't say anything bad about it, if I had to nit-pick and choose something I don't like. It would be that the VE table is RPM VS Boost and not RPM VS Calculated load. I'm sure I can change it somehow I just use it as it was intended and it works great, ESPECIALLY with the live tuning and tracing. Definitely makes getting up and running VERY easy. I had the idle and drivebility down fairly quick, then fine tuned it with Jon Drenas.

Got my new wideband all hooked up and installed over the weekend, along with a re-wire on my Bosch 044 as the relay wasn't getting enough voltage to click over. Now its running strong and the way it should be. Will start doing some full throttle tuning tonight, weather permitting.

Bringing up the boost, car is feeling really good @ 16psi. Probably going to tune to 18psi then run it on that power for this weekends track event. If everything goes well we'll take it up to mid 20's for boost.

Ever since I started the car I been having this random P60B6 code. It comes whenever it wants and won't go away until I reset the ECU. I posted over on Cobb's forum and got some info from Bill@Cobb. P60B6 is actually P0019, which relates to my AVCS being deleted. Unchecked it in ATR and all is well thus far!

Did a track day at Pocono this weekend with Independent Motorsports Group and Motorsports Rehabilitation Foundation. It was a twilight event so it went from 4p.m. until 12a.m. I had a blast up until my brakes literally exploded! So now I'm looking at the Essex Parts AP Racing Brake kit for the front and some standard rotors and pads for the rear.

Will being going on the dyno this weekend, so I will post up my numbers as soon as I have them. I'll keep you all updated on what I end up doing with the brakes!

Unfortunately every time I went on the track I kept forgetting my GoPro in the truck, so the only video that has popped up of me at the track is below;

Hey great build I have the ets kit also .
I went with a gtx3576r .

I have another friend with the gtx3076 made 450whp on meth at 25 psi .

The only thing I noticed was about the priming of the motor before start up I did the same then my tuner told me by holding the throttle petal to the floor during cranking makes the motor not start also for priming after oil changes and so on .


What happened to your brakes ?

I am loving the teal piping .

Keep us in the loop .

^^ It's called clear flooding the engine. Pretty much the same idea as just pulling the fuel pump relay to stop it actually firing up.


Awesome build, awesome car! Great work.

I have to admit I laughed fairly hard on the bottom of page 2, scrolling through and I see you post about how awesome it is to have such easy access to this oil etc, scrolled down two more posts and saw, worst can design ever!

Gave me a good laugh.

Nice build! My build was very similar to yours and I made 414 whp at 20 psi but ran out of injector. My tuner said with a little larger injectors I'll make 450 very very easily. Interested in seeing what you make with the gtx30

Thanks for the post guys! Car pretty much made exactly what I wanted. Reliable, easy power.

450whp/450wtq - Straight pump gas, I don't do meth. Again, RELIABLE.

Stepping on the pedal before starting is a way to turn it over without starting, but I never was a fan of it. Fuel pump fuse for me!

Brake pads exploded and lost all pedal. Going to upgrade to a Stoptech ST60 big brake kit or AP Racing big brake kit from Essexparts.com then some standard rotors and pads out back.
