Well after a year of highs and lows, I finally found a motor/tranny/etc to put in my 98 RS.

I have driven it. Didn't you see the vid?
However I haven't gotten into boost because I got the motor/tranny/etc with 2 miles on it. So needless to say I have a bit of breaking in to do. I think im at about 40 now.

I am currently using the RS ABS pump because I had to get it running in 3 days. I have the STi one and I'm going to use it once I get my hardlines in. I chose not to put on the STi rear lateral links for now because I am borrowing the wheels/tires and didn't want to destroy the tires. The rims are 17x8 I believe. It rubs like mad mostly because of the tires. And I'm using the STi brake booster

You certianly did. They are tied into the DCCD, they actually measure the pitch/roll of the car to determine what it is doing and add/subtract power and braking.

Well, I work for Garage Tuning we are currently located right up the freeway from you in Laguna Hills. Cost of a full front to back STi drivetrain is approx 15k depends on the price of the donor STi. Generally it takes about 2-3 weeks for a motor swap maybe a little more if you are doing the whole shabang.

Thanks for the pricing. What type of lag time do you have to start a new project? I am currently shopping ebay and have my eye on a sedan and is it possible in wagon form also? If so, this could really be interesting. I wouldn't have to sell the wifey so hard.

We will need a few weeks to source the motor, maybe more depending on how much you want done. We have a JDM container landing this week so we are going to be super packed for the next month or so.
