Hi Pedro and a warm welcome to TorqueCars, it sounds like you've spend some serious time and money on your car. It is certainly worthy of your investment.

What other mods have you got planned for it?

Thanks!

Man, it worth every $ and every secund!!! The car feels very good!

I have a lot of plans for the future!

Engine:

Blouch td06 18G Turbo.
EL headers (exhaust manifold)
Tuned on 100% Ethanol

Suspension:

JDM STI Pink Springs or Prodrive Springs (not sure yet)
Front and Rear sway bars
Better Brakes

Now, if I have the $:

Fully built engine; block and head
GT30R turbo
Tuned on Ethanol
Full STI tranny swap with Brembos...


The list will change till a can do all that! But that is part of the fun! :)

Hi Ferraz, welcome. Have you uprated the bushes or have strut braces on the front end - how is the handling with what you've done so far compared to standard. I;ve got Tein's all round with a front strut brace but although i have the uprated bushes (for the front end) havent put them on as the cars already pretty solid.

Hi Ferraz, welcome. Have you uprated the bushes or have strut braces on the front end - how is the handling with what you've done so far compared to standard.

Thanks for the welcoming!

The only bushes I upgraded were the ones from the ALKs... I have the rear strut brace (S204 performance damper) only. I want the STI titanium front one, so I'm still looking for a good deal!;)

Handling is great! It is another car! The Konis decreased bodyroll a lot! Not as much as sway bars would, but still. It is easier to align the car for the corner... (not sure if I'm clear here).
The ALK gives a lot of traction out of corners. You still get understeer if you approache slow corner too fast, but still a lot better than stock! But once you feel the front grip, FLOR IT!

One thing I still get is that "bubble-head" effect at high speeds, you know? I need some springs to help that.

Hello Ferraz. Nice wheels. Got any pics for us? PLEASE?
I have some pics of the car, will try to post later.

Long time from last post!! :embarrest:

I think it is time for an update!!

Here is the monster:



Had some up grades done to it, but nothing big!

White Line Steering rack bushings
Turn in Concepts Fender brace (nice upgrade)
STI Titanium Front strut brace
Had my wheels painted "Mitsu Gray" (LOL)
Tuned on E40 (40% ethanol) to 226whp

But as you can imagine, I WANT MORE!! So now I'm gathering parts for the next step...

Have:
Perrin Inlet pipe (charger pipe)
GrimmSpeed 3 port Boost Control Solenoid
td05 18G 8cm turbo (stuck in customs :()

waiting for:
DW 1000cc injector, so a can tuno for E90

Here is the "old" dyno graph... just for fun:

I updated the "parts list".

Car is going to get a new turbo, injector and boost solenoid installed tomorrow (I hope). And will be e-tuned for e100 (100% Ethanol).

Regards!

Car is back! I'm just riding slow, to make sure there are no oil or coolant leaks... I'm runing a base tune, something just for the car to move, so no performance to report. Tune starts tomorrow!

Keep us posted, More pics please! (I'll copy this to our projects thread because it will just get buried in the newbie forum!)

Why not upload some pics to your album on here? (It's in your profile!):D
