Hi guys, its been a while since ive been at the USMB, since i was last here ive owned 2 Brats (or brumby as they are called in Australia), One was a project car for shoehorning a Legacy twin turbo motor into, the other was stolen and written off.
At that point in time, i had given up and pursued a uni education, then in my final year picked up a MY99 subaru impreza GX, this suited me great for about a year, then i got the bug of an engine transplant again...

mods at the time were a pure V6 JDM STI, with power FC computer and Blitz pod filter intake, this was then dynoed up to show a rough figure of 176hp at the wheels.

i then took it to the drags, and ran a 13.269 @ 99mph

fitted an APS front mount intercooler then shortly afterwards, the inevitable happened, the motor had a bearing failure

faced with a prospect of rebuilding, i took the option to upgrade the motor to a version 7 sti long block, fitted equal length ceramic coated headers, reversed the inlet manifold, fitted an angle mounted vf35 turbo, aps cold air intake, 3" exhaust, baffled the sump, upgraded the brakes to the brembo units on all 4 wheels, then upgraded the gearbox to a STI-RA spec with DCCD, v8 sti suspension, v8 sti wheels, Bridgestone Re070 semi-slick tires, autronic plug and play ecu, 550cc injectors, anti lift kit, 24rear, 22mm front sway bars, GDA aluminum arms, walbro fuel pump,

this gave me a result of 219kw at the wheels or 292.8hp

(picture shortly)

and resulted in me acheiving a recent pass of 12.4 @ 163mph

(picture shortly)

anyhow, the car is far from being finished, hope to share some experiences and advice with you guys again!
