That's the latest and greatest USDM crank since 04' I think and the part number ends in"240". It is double crossed drilled and the phasing or timing of the oil holes is better. Same crank in the JDM 2.0L STI. It's the best for higher rpm next to a billet crank with straight through oiling.

Thanks for selling me this Borg Fuji! It doesn't whistle like I thought it would. It does make a wicked air swooshing sound when spooling up though. I really want to see what it will do on the de-stroker, but I also want to try a GTX3071. I wish I had unlimited funds to try all sorts of different combos

Thanks for the props! You still have your RS? That thing was so original and clean! I do wish I could do something like this for a living and still provide for my family. Right now it's a hobby and brings in side cash to help pay the bills.

making your hobby your job, just because you're good at it, is the same mistake I made. After a few years, dealing with a lot of people who don't know anything about cars really takes the fun out of it.
People always said if you can do something you love you'll never work again, or it will just make you hate the thing you love . I think the added stress of owning the business, and being responsible for everything would kill the fun. Making a good living working for someone else would be a good balance. Enjoy what you do, then clock out, go home and have none of the worry or stress.

I work at a Subaru dealer and the contrast from that to the aftermarket scene is sickening. So many idiots working at dealers
