Oct 2006 Update:
Sorry it's been so long. Wife House bills = motor slowdown. But I'm making progress. I have some money stashed away for the winter...and with any luck, the motor will get pulled in mid December and I'll start moving forward.
Here's some pics of the motor bits
Block is split and cleaned and goes in to get bored very soon. Christmas bonus should hit end of December at which point I'll go on a shopping spree ;)
Plans for the new motor include:
Perrin Fuel Rails
Perrin GT35R setup
820cc fuel injectors
Dual fuel pumps, or at least one that'll push more than a Walbro 255.
Helix 264 cams and valvetrain
Port and polished header. All exhaust pipes coated and wrapped.
TXS DTEC boost control unit
PPG 1-4 straight cut gearset
Not sure on the clutch yet, I don't expect a 2.2L to be a torque monster or anything...
450whp is the goal here on the local Mustang dyno where I nailed down 268whp with my current setup. Stock STi whp on that dyno was around 220whp.
As you may or may not have noticed, I have a second car listed in my garage...well, it is now gone. Thanks to a bunch of kids from MNSubaru.com it is now off to the junkers. No worry, I got what I wanted from it ;)
w00t. EJ22T bishes!!1 I got big plans for this monster. Stroker baby. I'll keep you posted.
Finally, updated pictures. When I last left you I was still installing the TXS FMIC. Skip ahead a few months and I have ditched the hoodscoop and gone sort-of stealth. (I still have my ricer stickers) Enjoy the pics!
Here are a couple pics from the recent TXS FMIC install!
