As some of you may know i have started my second build with the bugeye. The first build consisted of a 68HTA and a hybrid motor. It made 354 on the dyno with e85. That was somewhat disappointing for how much money i had invested. But it was still a pretty fun DD. About 3 weeks after having it tuned i shattered my rear differential. I then decided it was time for a 6 speed to avoid any more problems. After putting about 2000 miles on it for some odd reason the rings didn't seal right or something along those lines and i decided it was time to redo it again. I pulled the motor and ended up finding three bent exhaust valves also. I wanted some more power so i decided to redo it all.
The mod list:
-2.5 STI block
-CP standard sized pistons
-ACL main and rod bearings
-New Oem Oil pump
-ARP case half bolts
-Ported and Polished heads by me
-BC 272 cams
-Supertech intake and exhaust valves
-Cometic head gasket
-BC valve springs and retainers
-06 Sti transmission and rear diff
-DCCDpro Universal controller
-Quarter Masters twin disk clutch
-ATP GT35R externally gated
-Tial 44mm WG
-FIC 900cc's for now (I am currently in the market for something bigger. If you have anything PM me)
-Perrin Fuel rail kit
-Custom 3" TBE
Many of these parts i am waiting to show up yet. My goal is for over 500hp. I think i have what i need to make it but if you have any advice or suggestions as to what i might still need let me know. My dad and I have done all the work to this thing except the machining. And before anyone might say that i am spoiled, I have payed for everything on this car and have had a full time job throughout highschool.
Heres a couple pictures of the car.
Here is how lazy i was during the last build. Yes the engine bay is half black half silver.
I had to fix that during this build. Here are the results.
