'05 Sti, original owner. Went stage II right after break in. Installed 20G at 40k miles with stock block. Installed stock location GT3076 at 100k miles with stock block. Ran it up to 146k miles and motor was still going strong, running low to mid 12's at 5000ft., however oil consumption/blow by were way up. Going through 1 3/4 quarts every 3k miles. Went rotated and built block now with 172k miles on car, original drivetrain.

I'm confused...how many miles were on your stock block when you upgraded the turbo?

What block? Is it 166k on the built block, or 166 on the chassis?

Stock block had 50-60k when I had the FP HTA green put on.

Stock block had 141k on it when a built motor was put in.

Current odometer is 152k with the same FP HTA Green
