I guess LOOOOOONG time update.

A lot has happened, and a lot hasn't. Way too much indecision and 4 moves later.

I originally had one of my 2.43 destrokers, big cams, and a 35R in here but before I finished charge piping, and as it was a 60 mile a day DD in rush hour to build a TMIC & EFR 6758 with a little 2.1 stroker.

Then took my job at RYE and moved and it sat. I left RYE after a few years and got my own life back. I started on the EFR 7163 and FMIC set up but said screw it, that I just needed to get it running reliably first.

So much indecision but I realize my coupe is the toy again. This will just run for now.

So what's on it now:

Things that stick and stop
-full car bushing kit from Turn In Concepts
-Feal Tarmac struts paired with Racecomp engineering yellows
-Whiteline Front and Rear adjustable bars and Kartboy endlinks
-Stoptech ST40 front brakes (but might slap my STi Brembos on)
-Rota DPT 17x9 +42 wrapped with 245/50 Starspecs (they'll be short lived)

-STi driveline swap from an 04 STi I parted out
-ACT Street setup
-Driveshaft Shop rear axles
-Kartboy shifter bushing kit
-Kartboy trans brace bushing kit

Engine stuff
-2.1 shortblock: 3MI Racing rods, JE 8:5 stroker pistons, OEM 79mm crank
-Ported S20 castings, used STi sodium filled exhaust valves, and EJ255/257 exh cams, with some hand-me-down BC Racing single coil valvesprings
-I rebuilt a VF22
-Still on those GT Spec equal length headers
-APS downpipe
-Blitz Nur Spec cat back
-Still an old Walbro 255 for now
-old but BNIB SMC meth injection kit (for now)
-Kartboy standard exhaust hangers
-Perrin turbine inlet

Other stuff
-PLX gauges and dash cluster
-Ver3 STi seats

Probably forgetting a lot of little stuff, but am getting up to speed on reflash tuning before I jump to the EFR turbo, FMIC, and bigger injectors.
