I ended up changing up things a few months after buying the car i swapped parts off my old forester -----blouch 20g XT, Grimspeed EWG, ID1000's Crawford AOS, Swapped my 2005 STI transmission that had 5000 miles on it, ACT 6puck sprung clutch
Car made 340/340 on 17lbs on 91

about 5 months after I made that, I started having very big issues with oil consumption. First i had the turbo rebuilt because that was the only thing (motor wise) i swapped off my old car that had the same oil consumption issue. I continued to have the issue, got a compression and leak down test. had 120psi all 4 cyl, and 8-10% leakage. Then proceeded to tear down the block, and had 2 cyl that had ringland failure and that prompted me to start building!!!

So, the new idea for the build for this car is to hit 600WHP AT elevation!
