Im now deciding on the Headgasket. IAG recommends the Cosworth, though theres a few of you guys on here and iWSTI who havent had the best experience with it. As User also stated previously, most of the bigger HP builds are using JE Proseal especially with the closed deck. Im just trying to see if those who have used the JE Proseal gasket have modified it to better fit the cooling ports on the closed deck block. Do any of you have any info or input?

Some minor updates, Motor has been taken out. She has been officially violated. Someone also got the better of me, I made the call, and decided to bump up the shortblock to the IAG Stage 3 closed deck setup. This will be interesting lol

Not much of an update as we are still waiting on the IAG block and the heads to be finished, but some stuff started coming in. Them delicious welds. The quality of the ETS products are just amazing.

Juan did an awesome job with the rails and the lines. Very clean. I think we both have the radium in tank hanger too? I went for an oil change and showed them the box of goodies that the parts fairy dropped off. We are going to end up with pretty much the same build! I'm still waiting on the ID injectors and the IAG box of goodness.

Congrats, I'm envious and again...it looked awesome.

Come to the meet tonight dammit!!!!

Thanks! Yea, that is all the plan, just waiting to recover from a few things and get them here.

Ill try to make it out tonight though even if its just to meet and say hello for a few minutes, these last few weeks have just been something else with work. In the middle of a few system upgrades.

Well, she turned out without any issues, and did the 20 minute cam break in. The guys over at WRXperts will be finishing up and tidying up a few things tomorrow. Onto some phone pics and vids.

Well, she now has just about 140 miles on the motor. All seems great, good pressure, great sound, and great ride. I cannot wait to see 1000+ miles on this motor.

I will say this, the mounts, along with the 2015 steering rack, and steering rack bushings and brace, have made a HUGE difference on feel. The car definitely feels a lot more manual and less assisted. Completely happy with my choice in combo.
