*subscribed* Razz

It's like you're in my head... Wink

Sounds like an awesome build! Might as well go 4L80E. Turbos love automatics. Wink

Also, dibs on your 4.10's!

I'll be keeping my eyes on this. My car is running like a boss, but it is missing the high end whirr and BOV that the WRX has... It sure has me thinking

Excited to see this unfold

Ya know, the build looks great, but both you and bfurches... What the hell is up with the bov dumping out the side/front? Are there no kids or animals or pedestrians in any of your travels? I can see it for a track only car, but on a street car? C'mon. Can't you build a downpipe? Wink

BOV? I dont even have one yet?? LOL The pipe coming out the front of ours IS a downpipe. Wink

Car is looking really good Mike.

The only issue I see you running into right now is the Turbo placement! Man, that thing is low. I could see oil return/ drain-back being an issue. Maybe the picture just give me a goofy perception, but just keep an eye on that return!

Otherwise, it is looking AWESOME.

Taken right from google:
 
"Many of us fantasize about driving a race car to work. The power, the acceleration and the speed seem like they would be a dream come true on the road. However street cars and race cars are far from being the same animals. Both have four wheels, an engine, and a drive train; but the similarities stop there. Although the racing circuits are a main contributor of new technology that does make its way to the street, the technology in its raw racing form would probably be all but unmanageable for an everyday driver. Nevermind safety and legality."
 
Just because you can, doesn't mean you should No

Jus sayin
