Post Da site is updated finally...

I've finally threw together a new site to document my new project. It's just basic for now but it's a start.

For anyone interested: http://aspen.mwic.org/22lm

Andrew,

I'm not a maniac but I hope my car will be.

How are you surviving after switching back to the Pirellis?

Thumbs up

Very nice! This should be a lot of fun. You definately made the right choice going with the 2.2 and 2.2 tranny - they are both plentiful and either can be built to way beyond what you want to do.

I can't wait to see how you fit a front mount intercooler in there, but given the way you have done stuff so far, I'm sure it will be first class. If you need any help putting it together, I would sure like to try to help.

Hey Aspen, its worse than you think. I have also switched back to stock suspension for the winter...

On the other hand, my gf thinks my driving has deteriorated.

The pirelli are holding up alright as much as would be expected by a set of all season squealing pigs. Dang these things are high milage...

Hey Dave, nice site man. Looks great. 1 small thing, on the Introdction page, the bottom pic is linked to the thumbnail instead of the fullsize.

Just a note, have you tried those 5Zigen springs yet? If not, you can check them out on my car sometime if you want. Let me know.

Hey you could always get a lift in your garage... then I wouldn't have to worry about my f'd up knees on the cold floor.

BTW, check the CFM output on the compressor... that is what really matters, not that top pressure it can output.

Thanks guys for the comments.

Nick,
I got my 5-zigen springs on order and should be coming next week but it really doesn't do me any good without my struts(about 2 weeks time) and a running car. hehe.
I'll see if I can meet you sometime and ride in your car. You do have the KYB's, right?

Rob,
You're welcome to help. I'm doing most of the work at my GF's father's place in Michigan for now. If and when I get my house, hopefully within a couple months, I will probably do most of the turbo install in my garage here. You are welcome to come and see the installation or help if you want. The turbo isn't slated until Jan or Feb of next year. I'll let you guys know about it.

Andrew,

I know what you mean when it comes to "deteriorated" driving, having switched from my 17" w/Toyos back to Stock rims/tires before I sold my car.

98impresive,

It's not going to be a goliath but I hope to at least make an impact out of the 2.2L.

Yeah Dave, the KYB AGX's. Pretty nice having the option to adjust them at races. I'll tell ya, it sits pretty low (not quite enough, IMHO, but more then enough for this area).

Check out the pics from the install - http://8complex.mwic.org/suspension/

STI Shawn,

NOOOOO. You do not want to ditch the power steering unless you get a manual steering rack made especially for the Impreza. I'm not even sure if they made a manual rack for it or not.

I've already tried disconnecting the lines to the power steering and the steering is really hard, unless you are Arnold and not a girly man like myself.

I've went through a rigorous lightening process with my honda, only because it was going to be a track car and the honda's generally suffer from peak power bands and low torque figures.

I've learned that some stuff isn't worth removing for the streets, especially when you already have a good amount of torque like the Subaru motors. But hey, to each his own.

Different people will always have different opinions what should be removed or not.

P.S.
I'm keeping my sound deadening material, even though it's worth around 10lbs. so I can at least hear my $800 head unit.
