Default JSTi's 07 SWP STi Motor build underway! Sleeves and long rods :)

Well here she is, I figured I would post up a thread here on nasioc so I can get some constructive criticism and some feedback on what I have going on with the car.

Anyhow, I have a 2007 STi with just passing 14,000 miles. I got the car with 7,000 miles and bone stock and I have been building it since. I have just recently (within the past year and a half) have found a passion for autocross and track days, so this is the route I have decided to take my car down. It still spends some time around on the street though

Looks awesome. You didn't have no issues with that front mount clearing your bumper for fitment?

You have to cut the front bumper to get it to fit. It's not hard, just time consuming if you want to make it good. Here are some pictures to give a better idea on what you have to cut.

Thanks. A rotated kit helps with the fitment of larger turbos. Some people have seen a slight increase in spool, but with the innovations of the new stock location turbos, such as the atp30r and the blouch xtr series just to name a couple, they are able to achieve the power of rotated kits with maybe a psi or so more of boost.

tial .82. For the turbo size, the car responds exceptionally well. I haven't been in many other stis with rotated kits (none actually) but many people who have been in my car have been exposed to cars similar to mine and they always mentioned that the response of my car is like none they have ever experienced. I say this honestly, not trying to boast.

As you can see in the dyno sheet, the car is very responsive and a good match for my driving style. Just wish I was able to upgrade my internals so I could make the most of my set up, I'm sure there is plenty left on the table.

Sick car man! I'm down in Warren and also got tuned by Nate. You should head down sometime and see the new TPG shop. I'll be seeing you in the spring hopefully as I'd like to come up and hang out with you Misery Bay boys for some autocrosses once the snow clears. Keep up the good work man.

Hit me up if you head down that way, maybe I'll make a trip down also...don't find too many guys around this area who are actually building subaru's the right way unless they live in the Burgh.

Will do. I'll send a pm your way right now.

I'm thinking of going maybe during the first week of January, but I'm not sure yet. Just FYI the car is in winter storage so it won't be making the trip.
