you gotta have bank to push the limits. the mods are expensive but fixing broken shit is even more expensive.

It is VERY expensive.. If you want to push it learn from me and take my advice VERY seriously.. Talk to as many Subaru shops as possible.. I dealt with AndrewTech Automotive, Element Tuning, and Axis Power Racing.. Talk to places like this that have a good reputation and learn from what they tell you.. ASK QUESTIONS about everything.. Once you do all your research do it once and do it right.. If your going to build it up shoot for the stars if you will and don't sell your self short with say a turbo that you can afford now with intentions to upgrade again latter.. Generally you get 50 cents on the dollar selling used parts so that is just throwing money away.. Take your time and plan it out.. I have a couple posts with my setup that you can also look to for examples of what can work for you... With anything you chose to do best of luck and be prepared to breaks stuff.. A LOT.. I know I do...

Talk to Byron over at meadengineering( http://www.meadengineering.com/ ) he is right in your area and real good with Subies and just an all around good guy, I learned alot from him in just one afternoon of talking to him.

+1 on talking to suby shops. call some of the big names on the phone if they arent near year. andrewtech is the leader in transmissions then rallispec is good also perrin has built some sweet subarus ie the H6 sti i want to do a build like that. cobb knows our cars really well they may not be able to give you a lot of info but they will tell you who you can go to.
i wasnt saying pushing the limits is bad. i am 100% for pushing the limits. i tend to push them too far thats why i cant compete in snowboarding anymore, rotated vertabraes FTL
!Thumbs Down

i was just saying this hobby is freaking expensive. shoaf havent you blown 2 engines?

btw whens your car gonna be running again? ar eyou planning on a fmic?

Well, yes I did blow up (2) blocks.. Melted down the first one and cracked the second.. And I already bolted up the FMIC.. As for getting her back on the road, I need about 5 grand for the new setup I am going to put in.. With the new house purchase it's probably going to take a while...

Well, that's still in the works actually.. It really all depends on cash at this point...

Too big and heavy for the power output.. From what I've seen I'm not really impressed.. I'd rather jump to a 2.8L and a dual induction setup. NO, not twin turbos.. A supercharged/turbocharged 2.8L that is...

^ That's a scary set up from what I have heard. It's balls to the wall when it's tuned right , but very hard to keep tuned right. I don't want you to dust another motor, so please don't do it.
