2.0 and 2.5L blocks... $5000
All forged internals, proprietary 'anti-detonation technology', iron sleeves... this engine is pretty much bullet proof compared to most of what's out there on the market...
you won't believe me if i say it... But i'll say it anyways...
I've seen this in writing from Nathan at TXS, and if you don't trust him as a knowledable WRX tuner, you at least have to trust the fact that he has tuned this engine on the dyno and has hands-on experience with it in Phil's car.... He speaks about what it is capable of based on what it did in Phil's car. NO Water Injection, no race gas, just Turbo/front mount, etc...
the results are proven:
27psi, 28 degrees of advance, 11.5:1 A/R ratio...... and the kicker is... that's on 93 Octane, no knock. and the engine is said to run very quietly, therefore making knock detection much easier.
i'll say it again... that was on 93 octane... that is not a misprint. Ever dream of +22psi on 93 octane in a WRX??? yeah me too... and there it is... Engine is said to be able to withstand up to 40+ psi reliably.
Now that is absurd.
Even just imagine the potential with 100 octane race gas... got to be awesome.
Godspeed has one sitting at their shop right now.. (saw it yesterday)... its got the Magnus 2.5, Kaaz gears, and a stock mounting location Garret GT30r (i think that's the name of the turbo)... whatever the exact name, the turbo was nothing short of gigantic looking... i've never seen a turbo tucked in the stock fitting like that... all custom downpipe, aluminum intake pipe (the one under the intake mainfold), and uppipe... anyways... They're expecting to break the 500WHP mark with it once the engine is broken in.
