Well I am finding more work/distractions, LOL.
Picked up a '04 STi shell the other day from another member. It appears to be in great condition and has a wide body conversion on the rear. I plan to tinker with it on the side just trimming things off it doesn't need and doing some seam welding here and there over the next year. Then when I feel my current car is "done" I will shift my full attention/money over to this car and see where it goes. This could get interesting.

You are likely correct. I do as well.

Yeah I was pleasantly surprised after my drive up to get it (3 hours or so each way). I figured it was to good to be true until I saw it, at that point I loaded it up as quickly as I could and got it back home to start deciding what to do with it. LOL

I love how clean running 101 makes the exhaust. But it is going back to 92 for the a bit, hoping to get some solid information after switching a few minor things around.

Going to the track tomorrow, hoping to make a clean pass so I can get an idea of what this will do on the pump tune.

Clean pass A to B. Lol

I am mostly hoping to pick up my trap speed over my previous runs. Before my odd boost dip/trimming issue began it trapped 115mph and sense then it hasn't trapped over 112mph, and the 115 was only 18.5psi. So anything with a 115-120 trap ill be happy. Its a bracket race day so im holding off running 101 just yet, want to test on a T&T day then save it for a heads up day.

Very impressive man!! I think you'll have more fun this year with the weight reduction and hopefully better luck with the car lol.

I have loved my '04's gearbox from day one, great for all my applications until the drag strip. LOL

Need some prodrive wide front fenders for that wide rear! Would match perfectly.

The body is WAY down the list on that project. I will have it on the road before it gets a hood, fenders, or anything of that nature.



As for the car this thread was made for: I am prepping to put it down for a relatively involved winter project. Not sure of everything I will do but it will weigh a chunk less (depending on how involved I want to get with weight reduction) and I plan to rotate the intake and build my own intercooler piping. Should have updates in the next few weeks, timeline mostly is up to when I am willing to stop driving it. LOL

PS: Ran it in my last drag event and got myself a .000 in the semifinal.

So my winter projects have begun, I am trying to break things up so focused on the rear half thus far. Still trying to finalize my front end plans before I tear into that half.

Before:

After tear down (partial for fitment):

20151019_150150 by Bret Stevens, on Flickr

Test fit/install of the TSS rear sub frame, T-bar, railing arm mounts, trailing arms, and lateral links:

20151019_165610 by Bret Stevens, on Flickr

Another angle:

20151019_165630 by Bret Stevens, on Flickr

After the test fit and looking over a few things I am planning to remove the charcoal canister as well as possibly cutting out the spare tire section to flatten the trunk floor. This area is a tight fit and I figure with no spare why not cut it out and add room for clearance as well as a clear line of sight to that beautiful rear end.

Also I might as well look for input on one of my front end dilemma's. Basically I want to cut as much weight off the front half of the car as I possibly can, with that in mind I want to re-make the Perrin front bumper beam/intercooler mount out of aluminum. Then I got to looking at things and was leaning towards cutting out the lower cross support for the radiator as well and incorporating it into the bumper beam.

Right now it looks like this:

20151020_074223 by Bret Stevens, on Flickr

I am thinking about cutting all the sections highlighted in red:

20151020_074223 by Bret Stevens, on Flickr

Clearly after removing that section I would need to add on a lower hoop made out of some aluminum tube that would sit just behind the intercooler to support a new radiator.

Not a clue, but I know every pound off the front of a nose heavy car is a BIG plus.

I could see it being in the 20-25lb range between the part that gets cut off and the Perrin FMIC mount. That's gauging from the weight/size of the rear bumper beam I removed.

Now if I get a little too ambitious when I start cutting things it could be more than that. LOL

LOL, I wouldn't quite chock this up to "tubing my car" just yet. More just replacing the radiator support. It's basically just there to absorb some of a crash impact and hold up that radiator.

Haha still cutting up the car more than I'm willing to at this point on the GR that lower rad support is beefy!

Just ordered up a steering column from L&E Fabrication, looking forward to the quicker steering. Makes it so 1 rotation of the wheel does the work of 1.5 rotations.

Also checked my hood clearance with the Cosi-manifold it was around 44mm so I am going to get two 19mm spacers so 38mm in all (one between the head and the TGV and another between the TGV and the manifold) to get as close to the hood as I can without being in danger of making contact.

Also likely going to make a fist attempt at the lower radiator support this week, borrowed my brothers bender today so I have everything I need to dig into that portion of my project.
