Jkas - It's not a DD. Wasn't built to be one, won't be used as one. Just a fast street car for fun driving. Will never be dragged or tracked. Just don't want an obnoxiously loud car around town.
BLAZE2099 - I don't have a mod list up yet, as I haven't actually handed over the $ yet. Thats why I'm asking the questions. I was way off on the exhaust, APS I believe. For a quick mod list -
EJ25 block destroked to 2.3l, JDM version 7 2.0l crank, 100mm wiseco pistons,full darton sleeved (bored/honed/line honed w deck plate),Kelford cams R-199-d,ACL race bearing set, ARP head studs, Supertech stainless steel valves (nitride coated), Dual valve springs/ TI retainers, FiveOmotorsports 1200cc side feed, Perrin Fuel Rails, Gates race belt, GT4094R Twin Scroll t4, AMS front mount intercooler, AMS IC piping, MVS 38mm dual waste gate, T4 twin scroll up pipe, AEM Standalone EMS (stock ECU too), EXEDY stage 5 triple disc cerametallic clutch kit(200mm disc, 24tooth
spline), APS race exhaust
sleepr- Yes, a little help, not a lot. The questions are pretty general though, no? The clutch, I meant when you push the clutch pedal.
BLAZE2099- "Noob" here, I like Nasioc but I like this vein of knowledge for a change. Not a "Noob" to power, (American muscle) but am a "Noob" to this much power in these. Before I caught the AWD bug I did several cars, since then I've built a couple WRX's, not much over 300HP. Basically made 2.0L STI's with a couple engine mods (forged pistons etc) I also help local people with repairs, mods etc as I have an engine lift, motor stand etc. I've done 3 motors in these & a tranny. I know my way around cars & especially this car pretty well now. Helping build a track WRX at the moment too. This car I'm talking about, will be purchased the way I described. This car I happened to find for sale & it was built by some people in my area who I trust. Did 618 to the wheels. A safer tune is now set to 550.
All I want is to find a different axle back that is not as loud...a compromise. & the feathering the gas when starting, is that an ECU problem or just comes with this HP? Very common in American cars, but never seen it in these, I think because I've never been at this power level?
The clutch I'm certain enough on. Every board Ive looked at says these triple disc clutches when disengaged make noise, so I've satisfied that question.
I guess mostly just looking for suggestions on a quitter axle back. This car will be a 8 mo a year weekend type driver, I just don't want that kind of exhaust volume heading out for ice cream with my wife.
In case it's not clear, I've built a few of these already & another one right now, but this one I'm talking about was just built in March, being sold with the mods I listed plus some. ISC racing suspension is in there too.
