Default my (mostly) finished car

Soon as I can get pics, I will put them somewhere. Just a heads up....

My car seems to be mostly finished. It still needs paint, new diffs and clutchpack probably, and a set of rally wheels + tires. But, all seems to be good. For those who didn't follow my car from the NA forum, it's an 00 rs25 with ported out heads, lightweight flywheel, lightweight pully, new clutch (which doesn't hold when you go all out under heavy load), and built shortblock. The heads had a custom valve train and cams, but the cams were ground flat after just a year of use, and had to be replaced with a stock valve train and cams. The intercooler is a stock wrx one thats been chopped up and modified to fit the abnormal location of the turbo. Both up and downpipe are custom, and the car is vastly quieter than when I ran the Borla bits. It's managed by Brydon's (wave) old EMU.

It went turbo due to absolutely abysmal results from the NA build up, which was just finally finished Saturday. The dyno plot is a bit messy due to partial collapse of intake tube at a bend (being replaced with a solid bend), but made a solid 230 wht/whp at just 2k rpms and 8psi. It kind of flatlines at that point actually, so it doesn't make impressive big numbers. Once the intake track problem has been sorted out, it will go back in for a little fine tuning and call it a day. Currently it is running an 18t turbo. I am completely happy with how much torque it makes, and can not wait to run it this spring on some rallyx courses. As soon as I can get some pics, I will post them. It has been a long 3 years to get here, and I am totally happy to have gotten here.
