    You can build it to make 750hp, but the only way it's going to be a daily driver is if you hire someone to follow you around in another car all day to pick you up when it breaks. Yeah, the ESX car makes a good amount of power, and so do a few others that I know of.. but NONE of them are daily drivers. These are cars that are only driven 1/4 mile at a time, and they have the engine replaced SEVERAL times a year. I'm willing to bet all of the 700+hp Subarus you can list spend more time with the engine out of the car than in it. Unless your name is Fred Flintstone, you're not going to be daily driving a 700+hp Subaru.

    Im going to assume at 750hp the majority of your parts are going to fabricated. Not too many off the shelf parts for that much horse power. Have you ever been in a car with 400+ hp?! I drove a 540hp (pump gas) D1 procharged mustang as a DD. Talk about miserable. Things broke all the time, it was FAR from reliable. At the horse power parts aren't cheap to keep the build going either. Do some research

    Sure there are.. Darton sleeves, Cosworth billet crank, Pauter X-Beam rods, Arias pistons (although those will need to be custom order). GCS S3 cams, or Kelford 282s, GSC or Supertech valvetrain, Ferrea valves, heads will need to be ported to hell and back. Stick an Ultimate Racing twinscroll kit on there.. ARM FMIC, Bullseye Power S374 turbo, or something like a FP Super 99.

    Virtually all of that is off the shelf. The pistons will be custom order, but Arias already has the specs all ready to go.

    My mistake MainFrame, most of those parts would be custom order correct? Essentially they are off the shelf but they aren't kept in stock because the average modder doesn't order items of the magnitude.

    Depends on what you mean custom order. You can't run down to AutoZone and pick them up if that's what you're asking. In that case virtually every aftermarket performance Subaru part is custom order. Whenever I need something I ask my buddy that works at a distribution center. Whether it be one of those parts.. or something more common, like a Blouch turbo, or ID injectors.. my order process would be the same. (Although when I ordered cams for my car I spoke extensively with Craig at GSC and ended up having him model and make me a one off set of cams specific for my build)

    I'm anxious to see what you come up with, obviously you have deep pockets, the GTR alone is not chump change. I'd just do the GTR they eat corvettes for lunch....well maybe not that new stingray ...

    i didn't get any of these notifications but anyway . when i say DD for car i mean taking it out of the racing scene. by the time is done ill have a car to go to work etc. regarding to DD i mean like take it out whenever take long drives/ go car shows or meet like a state away stuff and etc. i know the reliability of car is not good thats why many of these shops recommended having a second car to drive around which i plan on doing. and regarding cars being swapping engines several times year is due to the fact they are pushing the car hard but going 20mph or even 70 mph as in a normal drive isn't going to destroy engine unless something was not put together correctly

    What is the point of building a million hp wrx if you're just going to cruise it at 70 mph? Serious question, not trying to be a ****.
