I am going to do it in stages. I plan to be continually working on the car. It's not a daily, and I am not in a rush. I do not have a goal in mind, but I do have a plan for the build which I will start in late winter if other projects don't take over (suspension, bodywork, interior, and the rest of the drivetrain). I am going to see how it feels when I get there and if I want more power I will adjust the car. I see it being around or slightly north of 500whp. But the car may be around 425-450 for a while? Who knows? Not trying to hit a number but more of a sweet spot that I like.

My last STi had a stock location 1st gen Dom. 3.0 with a 10cm hot-side on a stock block. It made just under 400whp I think? I can't remember, I know I had a fuel issue. But that felt nice for a while and at the time was the fastest car I had driven. I have now been in and owned cars that have a couple hundred more horsepower than that. So I know I want more than 400whp as a starting point at least.

Sorry for the long-winded answer. Can't sleep.

Also, on a side note. I have an extra short block with forged rod and pistons (open deck). That's the motor I will be building while the stock one remains in the car.
