What do you suppose is the next weakest link you'll find (i.e. what's going to break next)?
I think any of the following are possible failure points.
  • Motor - Stock Sleeves
  • Motor - ARP Headstuds
  • Transmission - Synchros
  • Transmission - Hub Sliders
  • Transmission - Gears
  • Transmission - Output Shaft
  • Front Axles - Stock STI
And probably more things that I haven't even thought of...

My vote is on sleeves or headstuds.

More towards headstuds just because I had horrible luck, and the more I pay attention and talk to other people with similar powered cars they have all done it before.

Yeah, I guess we will see. I just have the regular ARP's so they are definitely a risk.

Huge lines to get in to BIR yesterday. Took me two hours at the gate. Made some passes on the Mickey Thompson drag radials and no boost off the line. Got it down to 10.2 but then 60' didn't seem to be improving so I quit for the day.

Hopefully it dries out today and I get make some passes with boost off the line and maybe the top end bumped up a little. DA is quite a bit higher this weekend than when I was at Rock Falls.

I ended up doing 10 passes throughout the weekend and then got booted for no cage during eliminations. No one in my class (62mm turbo) was running faster than about 11 flat. My best pass was 10.1 @ 140mph. I picked up a few mph by not shifting into 5th. I couldn't hook well enough on the street tires to do 9's. I was consistently 10.2 or 10.3.

I will try to get some video up from the 1/4 mile runs soon. For now I have a video from roll racing against a couple EVO's. One is a custom PTE 66mm and the other is a forward facing PTE 6466. Both were at around mid-30's for boost (according to their owners). Runs are from 40mph to about 150mph.


I drove the car to and from the track (2hrs each way) and didn't have any issues throughout the weekend. In the last month the car has seen about twenty low 10 second passes as well as over 1,000 miles on the street. I hope it keeps it up, but I'm sure something will fail eventually as it's being pushed very hard for what the setup is.

I feel I've somewhat reached the limits of this turbo, so I'm thinking of going bigger. I've listed my turbo FS if anyone is interested.

Nicely done. The view from the stands make those runs look a lot closer than they looked from the in-car view.

So when does the cage go in?

Still not planning on doing a cage yet. Still daily drive it in the summer. 1,000 street miles in the last month.

I used to think my 20g'd bugeye was a pretty stealthy daily. This thing must be crazy as a daily street machine. Just out of curiosity, any "inconveniences" with daily driving this setup? I noticed the more power I put into my car, the more it became more (for lack of a better term) annoying to drive every day. I mean granted, it was getting up there in miles and age, so all the little things kept coming up. Every weekend turns into find the boost leak and replace hoses. And I found myself monitoring gauges and noises more than watching the actual road.
It did make it all worth it every time you get near someone that thinks every Japanese car is a '92 civic with a fart can (my area is full of these) (on a legal track, of course). It was a super fun car, but not the best daily driver.

It's really not a good daily driver at all. It has no AC, no radio, an exhaust dump, solid billet motor/trans mounts, no sway bars, super squishy tires, and no powerband under 4k. Mostly I just drive it quite slowly to daycare and to work and back, but I like having the ability to rip on it whenever I want. There are always minor tweaks and fixes being made, but I haven't had too many major problems. Plus I have my 2012 Forester so any time there's an issue or an upgrade that I didn't finish installing, or even if it rains then I just drive my Forester.

Yeah I can't imagine it "works" on the street. It's interesting to hear about what an actual race car's manners are on a daily basis. I have more than enough (for me) experience driving a car that doesn't want to be daily driven. I drive my jeep with no front sway bar, but with how slow and heavy it is, you don't really notice it.
The forester makes such a great daily driver, I just bought a house, so mine is currently filled with boxes. Ha.
I throw kids, dogs, and all of our stuff in it, plus it's got a decent amount of suspension upgrades, so it's also a blast to drive. Although I wouldn't mind having a newer 6spd forester. (That will probably be next)

My exhaust dump was off center last weekend and ended up melting my bumper with all the high speed runs. Last night I took the bumper off and got it back where it should be, so hopefully it doesn't get any worse. I'll probably have to pick up a new bumper eventually.





While I was doing that I also pulled off the Hella Sharptones. They are normally yellow with blue. I pulled off the yellow cages and spray painted them matte black. After installing everything back together they are now much less noticeable (although the blue can still be seen if you look close).

Thanks. Wasn't quite quick enough to keep up with the stretched liter bikes and Hayabusa's though. Must be time to go faster.

Well if it didn't poop a liner before now it is just a matter of time.

Any reason for a 6766 over a 6466? I always was under the impression that the exhaust side maxed out before the compressor in the case of the 6766 so it was kind of a pointless turbo with the gen 2 6466 out?
