Comments from the most recent tune:

It made just over 450WHP @ 26psi on E85. Spools pretty late, but top end feels strong and boost holds well.

Comparison to the last time:



Differences: Before -> After
  • Turbo Compressor: 53mm Inducer -> 54mm Inducer
  • Intercooler: GrimmSpeed TMIC -> TurboXS FMIC
  • Blow Off Valve: Stock BPV Crushed -> TurboXS RFL BOV
  • Uppipe: GrimmSpeed Uppipe -> GrimmSpeed EWG Uppipe
  • Wastegate: Internal Wastegate -> TurboSmart 40mm
  • Outside Temperature: 30-40F -> 70-80F

The powerband does feel quite different. What is seen on the plot can be felt on the road. It really gets into power around 5k. This is really pretty late, but the power comes on strong and feels good out to redline. Once in the power it feels good, but it takes a bit to get there.

Not an ideal powerband for daily/street or autocross, but for occasional driving and drag events it should work great. I am looking forward to seeing what it will do at at the track. I am hoping it will do 11's and trap in the 120's, but I'll be on street tires so we'll see how well it grips.

Here is a quick speedo video:

Picked up this car as the new project. I spent the last month or so looking for a car that I could build up. Now that I have a 2012 Forest for a daily driver this will be a weekend/project car only. I wanted to start with a cheaper base and had my eye on a Bugeye WRX as my top choice. I wouldn't have minded something newer, but the cost was generally quite a bit more. The slightly lower weight on the Bugeye sedan was also appealing. I was even looking for something with a blown motor or tranny to save money. My search was nationwide. I e-mailed/PM'd/texted many people and looked/drove a few cars.

Eventually I was pointed to this one by a friend. It was semi-local and running. It had a new timing belt, water pump, clutch and heads put in this spring. The interior is clean (even has a single DIN stereo). There are a few mechanical things I need to look into and the exterior has some dents (quite a few in the hood) and a little rust starting on the quarter panels, but overall it was in pretty good shape for a car of this age. And the fact that it was local and running saved me a decent chunk of money by not having to ship it.

The car has virtually no mods. Just the giant eBay hood scoop and the muffler cut off. Surprisingly it's not that loud (for having no muffler at all). No firm plans for the car yet. Still trying to figure that out. I would eventually like to make it fast

Here are some photos:

Did you get rid of the hatch? I got a good feeling about this one!

I watched your other build in silence; belated kudos to you on that one (and condolences ), and I'm excited to see this. Congrats on the bugeye.

Also, your videos convinced me to order my hatch with the SPT, so thanks for that.

Carry on.
