How are you? Long time!

Have you thought about putting a build 4EAT in it and using a Powertrain solution to control it all?

As you already know, the auto shifting will cut down your shift time and less transmission shock to the chassis?

Yes I have but we not ready to invest in an auto setup yet. We are still far off from where we should be with the manual setup so we gonna catch up then we see.

nice work, I've been watching your progress over the years, I started in 2008, got my gt3076 to an 11.2/127 . Your doing great for not having access to all of these parts as easily as we are. I visited out there in Jamaica a few times in the late 90's early 2000's, I was told of the very high taxes/duties on items coming in from anywhere else

I kept it budget myself, buying all the used parts off other part out cars, when someone's motor goes, usually they give up & that's where I get it at half what they paid usually

We on a budget here too, it takes us a lot longer to acquire our parts as we have to pay ~50% more for the parts after taxes / duties. So we have to prioritize and tune the car more.

Got some testing done this past Saturday. We got 10.4ET and now hold the record for subaru in the island. The 28th is our meet where I hope to even better that time.

Boost wise,

I think you might be approaching the limit of that semi-open 207 block.

Great progress none the less.

well not from our experience. we have been to 38psi with a 50 shot of nos on our block from last year and that block is still good to this day. we just put in a street car and went with a new setup for a fresher motor this year. that motor only made 551whp 440tq peak though as it was really inefficient. i plan to be around 34psi on race day and see what it does.

i have busted open many blocks in my street car with a lot less power so in my opinion, if you under say 700whp, its really about how you apply the power and not how much power you actually.

2.5 blocks splitting just gave open deck the EJ's a bad name. Theres a noticable differnece between the iron liner of a 2.0 and a 2.5. It's like they literally bored a 2.0 out to a 2.5. I have a 2.2l block im going to cut in half soon so we have all 3

thats how i feel about the blocks too terry. i busted a 2.5L block in my streetcar just testing it at 20psi, i was testing ithard though. the 2.0Lis more abundant here in jamaica and i wont give it up unless i get a sleeved or strengthened 2.5L.

another thing is, as you can see, the factory sleeve doesn't go all the way to the top. if "Mr. Subaru" had just made the sleeves start from the top of the cylinder, they wouldnt be so vulnerable to cracking "in my opinion".
