    Getting ready for bullrun 2013

    So I guess I'll start a new build thread from my previous build threat on another forum which seems to have no activity.

    So a few weeks back I purchased a 2006 WRX Limited with 109k on the od. My original intentions for the vehicle was to build it up and give it to my brother when he comes back from Afghan. However, things do change. A year back I made an inquiry about running in the 2012 Bullrun, however at the time of my inquiry it was too late and the race was full. Few days ago, we received a letter in the mail about running in the 2013.... my fiancee and I jumped all over the opportunity to do something special seeing that my 30th is just the corner. What not better way to celebrate the big 30 by driving from Montreal to New Orleans with some of the biggest and baddest cars on the road and partying like a rockstar?

    Now, you may ask why in gods name would I try and compete in the bullrun with a WRX? I said why not do something unique and fun. So I reached out and contacted a Akuma Motorsports out of NJ. We came up with a few scenarios but this seems to be the most fun. I am all about doing things different. So here goes nothing.... a little about my build.

    Rather then going with your traditional coilover suspension I'll be running an Air Lift Performance setup... functions and handles like a KW V2.

    So the kit ill be running is a the digital combo kit which can be found here : Subaru Impreza/ WRX 2002-2007 | Air Lift Performance

    As for wheels I'll be running a set of ADV1 05 DC in a matte black in an 18x10 +35 offset. Here is a set of the wheels....


    We recently took a trip up to concord mass and have NHwraps take a peak and spec the car for any paint damage before ordering out new wrap... We are goin to go with a Matte Metallic Purple.... with matte black lettering for our sponsors for the ride....

    The wheels and color of paint can be see here :


    So on the wrxtuners threat people asked me all sorts questions about the build it took a few days but here is how the motor will be build. Now Akuma Motorsports will be responsible for all aspects of the build... so what I'll do is copy and paste my build see so you can all clearly see how this motor is being built.

    So the modification is as follows.

    PPG 1st-4th straight dog cut gears

    get a bigger turbo in my opinion. You're doing a lot of work who's potential wont be seen with that little turbo (ie the big valves)

    Sinister I couldn't agree with you more... however with what we have for budget and what our current tranny can handle this is the best we can do for this WRX.... my 09 GTR is currently going through a few more upgrades as well.

    If any business cares to throw down a sponsor at this point please get in contact me and I'll respond to you promptly.

    don't blow money on the cosworth long block then.

    Your D25 heads from that car, are plenty... Look at the numbers I got on my build. On a low reading dyno with a stock location GT3071 (blouch dom 1.5xtr) with stock D25 heads, and forged pistons, I was able to get 430whp. You do the same as me, get some rods, and cams... and 500whp is easily attainable on a GT35R

    I agree.... my plan down the road is to do something bigger once the event is over... i'll eventually turn the car into texas mile car.

    Nice build by the way looks good.

    Well I guess for a little update.

    After getting pm's and chatting with people about the build a few things have changed.

    The first will be a tranny switch to a more elongated gear system for a 6spd vs the 5speed PPG Dog Cut gears.

    We are also switching from the GTX 3076 to a Blouch 6562.

    Also if anyone is looking for some WRX parts please don't hesitate to message me I'll be getting rid of them asap so I don't have a build up of parts.

    Mad cool. Bull Run has always sounded like an amazing experience. When the time comes I'm hoping you provide us with regular/daily updates of your experiences - so I can live vicariously through you!
