sorry for the late reply, been out of the country for work, I didnt get an email either.

Anyway, the car was up for sale as a bare shell for over a month locally but there was a lot of interest but no one was willing to spend the money. so I cut the cf roof out and scrapped the shell.

there is another build underway with a cleaner GD chassis. there didn't seem to be too many people in this build thread so I decided not to make another one here.b But I would gladly answer any questions if people have them.

new chassis, so no broken bolts in the frame, no random wholes from mistakes lol. lighter cage, full cell,seam welded front end, APR widebody.

I am currently out of the country for work but it hasn't stopped parts coming in.





Big thanks to Ryan @Vexperformance for again hooking me up with a great product, the OS Giken Super Lock LSD will be a great addition to the car. Every time I talk to someone about the diffs they kept telling me the front diff was the biggest game changer. After being at WTAC and hearing the positive response from Idin about his newly fitted diff, I was sold. I contacted Ryan and he came through with an amazing price and showed up extremely fast.

I will do a small dump here, I left e big gap from where the motor popped till when I updated with a crushed car lol

pics below are from the season finally of CSCS Time attack. I was using a friends car to finish the season, same car I used to start the season LOL. He is now happy to know the car and take the punishment and will track it himself next year.









Annie Tong is one of the better if not best photographer that comes out to CSCS, she does a wonderful job at catching the cars and atmosphere of the event. Below are some of her pictures.

I went down to Pontiac MI, for the Speed Ring Challenge with the Chris from Touge Tuning. all I can say is the Americans can run a pretty damn good event. seemed well organized and there wasn't a lot of rushing which seems to happen at the CSCS events. I did not race, I just crewed for Chris. Kinda a small taste of what will go on in 10 days down in Australia.


The cars that showed up were absolutely amazing each class was well rounded which made for a good show.

I have always wanted to see the Lyfe GTR in person, well I did that and they have the same luck I do. lap 1 they caught fire and their final lap ended in the wall. luckily the driver was ok and even the car looks to be in good shape minus some body work.


The Canjam Black storm STi took the fastest time of the weekend and set the new track record along with winning 20k USD.

another video of Grossi in his 07 STi, he won the track mod class, canadians rocked it down there.

I was given an opportunity of a life time to go to WTAC and crew for a subaru team, now its not a crazy one you may have seen all over WTAC pages before but the build is VERY similar to mine, Alcons F/R, Built blocks, both were using EFR 7163 at the time,dry sumps and both had similar views on many points. All I was asked to do is pay for the flight and everything else would be covered. All I can say right now is Idin has be an amazing host and great person to get to know face to face rather than over the phone and FB.








Pre WTAC (today) we had a test day, we did find a gremlin and still have not 100% nailed it down. We will be working quickly and on the fly tomorrow to fix the issue as soon as we are 100% sure what is causing the car to run lean under heavy load in 6th gear. right now signs look like a relay over heating.

Video of me taking the car off the trailer... the trailer also had a new NSX, GTR and something else i missed.

As I spent my last day in Romania I was sent a picture of another part that has arrived, with refreshing the build I was looking to update the dash. I was torn between the MXL2 or MXS, in the end the MXS came out on top.



I didn't give two damns about getting the roof out of the other car. It was cut out with a sawzall, this left the roof still actually bonded to parts of the frame work. I thought this would be a nightmare to separate and the first tool I used didn't look promising (windshield removal wire). But then I found a nice chisel/scraper and was able to lightly hammer it down through the sealer.









it came out looking great, not bad for CF that has been used to hold tools and even had rims and tires on top of it.

Ordered the new drysump pan, this time I went for the newly designed billet version. If some of you remember the old one took a good beating from a rod.

the new pan finally arrived, apparently it helps when you get the CC number correct when you place an order lol.

Hello funk32, you have made a fantastic work on this car !
I'm thinking to build a v-mount for my car (same model)
Do you have more pics of the different hooks of your assembly, especially for the radiator.
did you modify the radiator outputs?
How did you make the pipes for coolant?

Thanks for sharing your work !

I most defiantly was not, it was a custom made setup.

alexdeyth, sorry I do not have better pictures of the setup while it was being made. The rad itself is a model from a Mini Cooper, which is larger than OEM but slightly smaller than a Mishimoto rad designed for a Subaru.

seems I have neglected this thread, sorry for those that have been following.

I was able to finish the 2017 season in first place but only due to the help of Shan, the owner of the GR and Touge tuning for support me through out.



As the car sits now,







New full harness



Nice IAG stage 4 extreme block

I am late in seeing this thread. I have an '07 STi with subframes and much of the same running gear, but mine will possibly stay street legal in a "sleeper" state and yet may see at TA or TT one day.
I have an '08 track car @470 WHP and OS Giken diffs. Wanted to bend your ear about the diffs, in that a discussion might be informational to a wider audience.
Best of luck!

Sorry guys, I have been pretty busy in the last year doing work related things and a surgery.

Touge tuning put together the longblock which is the IAG Stage 4 extreme and ported heads.

I have since brought the car back to Edmonton AB with me.



test fitting the race version but in a backwards facing orientatio.



I am still busy with work so it is slow going but I promise things are moving forward.
