    White Lightning Build Thread

    Ok, I know some of you all may remember my wrx journey. Well here we are two and a half years after first getting my 2011 pearl white WRX, 2 years after throwing a rod in my first motor, 6 months after cracking a ring land in my second motor. I've decided it's time to build, so thats why I'm just now making an official build thread
    What I'm already starting off with is:
    Blouch 440xt
    Perrin intake tube
    3" perrin catless downpipe
    Grimmspeed 3 port boost controller
    DW 750cc injectors
    DW 65c pump

    Now for what's going to be new:
    Forged Carrillo pistons
    Eagle rods
    STI crank
    Darton sleeves
    Arp head studs, rod bolt, etc.
    Cometic head gaskets
    Process West TMIC
    BOV (not sure on which one yet)
    External 44mm wastegate
    oil cooler
    New clutch/pressure plate
    Accesport
    And of course at the end of the job as usual, Top Speed Motorsports tuned.

    Yeah hopefully, aiming a little more for reliability than power. Still hoping to make some good power though
