    Thread this: WRX/STI = not just a money pit...but a money abyss.
    Yeah, I agree - I've an '03, I paid $24K out the door and I've got about $26K into it now...only making 305/325 on it though on California 91.

    Shoulda gotten an EVO. Then again I've dropped at least $10k in mods on my car... damn... thats a lot of money! But I do break stuff, so it adds up! Damn money pit... I just need a intercooler & intake so i can fit an intercooler and tune to see if i can get closer to that 300 mark. (damn 91 octane) So, $1600 and im done with engine mods... next will be an expensive strong set of 18" wheels... so about $3000 more... good god... then a steering quickener installed for $700... then a cage for $3000... good lord when will it STOP!!?@

    Oh yeah, to the original poster, triple carbon clutches suck. I've heard too many horror stories from people who have used them for high power applications. Strangely the ones who have success with them are pretty much stock w/ a few bolt ons.

    You should talk to FireFox, he's also interested in making cars go about 300mph or so. He even has a business plan so he's a little ahead of you.

    So do I. But I decided to save the $20,000 and get my C6 targa a year earlier. It is (the C6 Z06) without a doubt the nastiest Vette ever!!! We'll see if I am crazier (or stupider) next winter, but I doubt it...


    Will, you are crazy. You are my WRX idol. I will live my WRX power dreams vicariously through you. Hope to see that thing when its done. You doing the work at XX?

    I know how you feel, bro. I wanted sooo bad to break the 400 WHP mark..... until I saw what the bill would look like! I had the chance to buy the car I always wanted, and said fcuk it. I put the rex back to stock, sold it, and the rest is history. I may be looking for a used EVO in the next year or to, you know, something to mess with, b/c I think I will keep the Vette close to stock. Although I am getting an exhaust next week. If I really want to experience mass amounts of financial and mental stress, I can always call Lingenfilter, and set up an appointment. Good luck, I hope everything works out!

    - all stage 4 components, defi gauges, turbo timer, springs, swaybars &edlinks, all the misc crap like strut towerbrace etc. completely back to stock, cost $1000.....

    Wasn't too bad, less than it cost to put it all on !
