if you got extra cash make it safer and buy the killer b oil kit. more oil, stays cooler, and you wont oil starve. I imagine 400+whp would cause oil to slosh around in stock oil pan pretty easily.

So I've changed up my build some. 1300cc ID Injectors, Cobb fuel rails and line kit, Dom cylinder 4 cooling kit. Also going with the Crawford V3 aos not IAG. Shooting for 430-450 whp. The BCP x500+ should easily make big power. I'll start adding pictures as I tare into this build.

punching out of turns with 400whp is brutal. Car bounces, tires spin, drivetrain shock when you shift. Oil will be sloshing around with all the Gs. At least thats how I drive my car lol.

Update:
I'v added a few mods to my build. South Bend stg 3 clutch, DW hard wire kit and P&L rails, lines, and regulator.

I have the pump and hard wire kit done. Group N motor mounts, pitch stop and trans mount are in.
My car is scheduled with P&L Motorsport on the 18th of this month to have all parts installed. The week following Corbin Johnson will tune my car.

Sounds interesting. Even sold by Costco for $1k right now - but it seems like they got overwhelmed by Costco sales, or they changed the product a little for Costco. TONS of "this was broken/missing out of the box" comments.

I'd gladly pay $1500-2000 for a Cadillac version of same that has no issues.

Interested in your results as well, been wanting any info on how stout these “new” pistons are. Was thinking about making a thread for 19 STI’s and RA’s to have people post mods and experience with the newer pistons being any better/ other issues encountered.

19 STI
FP Red @ 21 lbs
1000cc injectors - maxed out so 1300s should be perfect for you
ETS FMIC and Intake
TGV delete
IAG fuel rails
Series custom fuel lines
Aeromotive FPR
Cobb flex fuel
ID fuel filter
Walbro 450 w/ Visconti pump hanger

Car was my daily. Have a RW750 block that I am building to crank the boost up to at least 27lbs - have map already for it

Car rides out and is strong. Tuned by M-Tuned

Follow my build @sti_grey

Stock block and clutch. Going on 3,500 miles on this setup with 8,500 on the car now. We tuned it out of the factory and first tuned 19 Sti

You can expect the ambient temp to be higher if you were sitting and the sensor is heat soaked (the ambient temp sensor is in the bumper/grill area where it gets a lot of heat from the radiator etc and not much direct airflow to quickly cool it). But if you are constantly seeing lower intake temp vs ambient, one of your sensors are off.

Front mounts are great though. I saw about 10 degrees over ambient with the factory top mount and now i am 3-4 degrees over ambient with the front mount.
What about FMIC with 50/50 water/alcohol spraying on the IC? I know that's not his case, but with high humidity levels, shouldn't that create the same effect? Evaporating anything on metal surface should drop temps below ambient, no?

It can definitely drop it a bit below ambient momentarily, but it would be hard to maintain it below ambient during a hard run. The benefit to a spray will be seen mostly when the cooler cant maintain it's maximum efficiency.

As far as what liquid, it's all about making that liquid change to a gas as fast as possible as that's what will use the most energy (heat absorption). So any liquid that evaporates faster than water should be more effective (a lot of people use windshield washer fluid because of it's methanol content). There are limitations - Most people see no cooling benefit running over 50% methanol/alcohol, while the safety risk skyrockets above those levels.

Got a little progress done this weekend, well actually a lot. turbo, up pipe, injectors, rails, header and almost all of the aos are installed. I ended up swapping my Socal tgvs for Torque Solutions.

I haven't heard of him, I assume he is a reputable tuner?

I was planning on having Jr. Barrios (JRTuned) tune my car this summer...he tunes out of P&L here in Chicagoland area.

I know this topic has been beaten to death in the community, but what is your take on 400whp on stock block? This is my first STI currently at 420 miles.

Thanks.

15-17 sti I would cap whp on stock internals at 375ish. Its been proven over and over these yrs sti dose not like high hp on stock internals. Not really much data on the type RA short block like mine.
I have talked to a few guys that are pushing 500+ on type RA short block. So idk what to expect yet. fingers crossed I dont get ring failure.

I dropped my car off at Turn In Concepts out of Cincinnati Ohio today for a stage 3 South Bend clutch, intercooler install and dyno tune by Corbin Johnson.

James, I'm uber jealous man.

Nice work so far on the build. Overall, how would you rate the "ease of wrenching" on the STI? I have built several motors in the past, so I know my way around car engines and bays...however, some of my previous projects (300ZX) were a nightmare to work on. The Subbies easier in your opinion?

Also, I hope it's true what you said about the Type RA motors holding up to 500whp. If true, it will be nice to maintain the stock block for a bit.
