A Long 6 Months

It has been a long 6 months but a large step in completing the STI build has occurred. Exactly 6 months to the day (not even planned) from when the STI first went up in the air and the project began the car was finally put back on the ground. The suspension setup that we will be running for this phase of the build is finally completed and fully installed. The full list of suspension and drivetrain components we are using can be found on the "Team Cars" page.

We would like to thank the following sponsors who helped us with the suspension and drivetrain package:

Sorry about the mess and dont mind the old wheels, they are temporary, but here it is back on dry land where it belongs.Obviously the final ride height will be set once the engine is in and it will be taken to TiC for the corner balance and alignment.

Today we picked up some parts from the water jet that we will be installing soon. We can now move forward with the fuel setup and interior of the car. The engine is waiting on the crank to come in from Subaru and once it does it should go together quickly. The turbo has also finally arrived and is at Nameless Performance being used to fabricate our intercooler and exhaust.

We think that progress will pick up quickly and we can get moving now that we have worked out all the problems that we ran into so please check back regularly for updates!
