I,ve been racing for a few years now with my old 1989 Xsi Honda integra fitted with a integra type R motor, adjustable suspension and slick tyres.
And she goes pretty good and reliable.
The classes I race in have a time brake out, which I've managed to run to as I've got better and improved the car.
But in the last 2 years the brake out time has dropped 3 seconds.
Which doesn't sound like a lot but it is for my car.
I could turbo or super charge it, but then your looking at some serious money to keep it reliable.
Now the other car in my class are things like,
RX7 turbo and na
V8 mustang with big power
6 cylinder cars (similar speed as my car)
a few Hondas (similar speed as my car)
So you can see fast cars.
So I was looking for something that would be a bit more competitive, with room to improve.
I've always liked subaru's and have owned a few over the years.
legacy, wrx, sti, forester, so why not a Subaru.
Good traction, pretty quick (would have to be an sti).
New fuel pump, exhaust and a link ecu, should make 220 kw at wheels.
But the problem is the price of and sti round the 1999 v5-6 model would set me back here in new Zealand
around $6000 to $10000.
Bit steep for my budget.
So while at one of the meetings I ran in someone with this little beauty.
Mid mount Subaru engine.
So it got me thinking.
My brother got a few Brumby's (brat) at his place. Why not mid mount brumby with ej20t engine.
