    ^^^^ LOL

    No... the Porsche is gone... I sold it a couple weeks ago.

    But... it was my choice... the wife actually didn't want me to get rid of it.

    I'm actually in the market for a 64 El Camino--LOL

    LOL.... I wouldn't have posted it if it wasn't already bought--

    I used the "Buy It Now"... $479 with free shipping

    I've watched FIVE other VF39s sell in the past week for almost $600.

    It was only listed for just over 2 hours... and I snached it up... appears the seller didn't do his research on what the going prices are. Good for me... bad for him.

    290 WHP.... coming soon

    I will definately take pics..... not sure about the dyno though. I trust COBB, they haven't steered me wrong yet. I will post 1/4 mile times though once I make it out to the track.

    Here's the COBB map notes on the Stage 3 VF39 reflash though:

    If I have any money left after my car gets out of the shop I wanna get the Cobb AP. The guy that had the car before me had an ECUTek job done but my poor car's getting ripped apart and possibly a built engine so thinking of almost starting from scratch.

    I see they're pretty popular. I have no Cobb parts at all and they seem to like to work together. Are the Cobb maps built specifically for Cobb parts?

    Just asking here cause I know you use it. :-)


    BTW.. why DID you sell your Porsche?

    wow dude, I'm enjoying that build...I like a lot of what you're doing. I love a lot of gauges as well, but I'm about matching the interior to make it look stock!

    I assume your A-Pillar is Glo-Shift gauges...I had a dual pod, and it fit like A$$ so I got an Autometer and replaced it with a triple pod. I just gotta find a third gauge to go in there. Yours doesn't look bad though!

    I'm diggin the rims...but the drop doesn't look all that dramatic, which isn't a bad thing of course!

    I like the clock reinstall...if you fabricate something to place it in to hide the gap in the DIN tray, that'd be impressive...

    How hard was wiring the A/F gauge if you don't mind me asking? I'm in the market for one for my third spot I think...that or an Exhaust gas temp gauge...

    Anyway, best of luck and I'll be watching!

    The COBB AP is the best purchase you'll ever make..... a great start, and infinately upgradeable. As far as Cobb "parts" are concerned, I really don't have all that much.. just the heat shield. They make other stuff.. swaybars, intakes, exhaust, etc... but it's mucho $$$. So no, the maps aren't just for Cobb parts.. the maps are more designed for specific upgrades.

    The Porsche?? I bought it when I was a single dad with 1 kid fresh out of a divorce.... I'm now married with another kid on the way.

    I'm 31... I've been driving since I was 17...... I'm on my 31st car. I get bored easily.

    Just didn't seem to fit in the mix anymore.. so I got rid of it. Plus, it's not fast, just cool looking.

    Thanks!!!

    Yea.. the pod is Glow****. I wouldn't put those gauges in my car if they were free. But the pods? its just plastic. The fit isn't perfect,, but I made it work. The center dash pod is Autometer brand... the third dual pod is just generic.

    A/F gauge is useless..... I learned that after I installed it. Honestly, it's nothing but bling (unless you get a wideband for mucho $$$)

    But since you asked... I spliced it into the purple wire coming off the 02 sensor.... plus the normal power, acc, and ground. I did a writeup quite a while back on it. If you're just looking for a 3rd gauge... get a voltmeter... SUPER easy install, and it actually serves a purpose.

    As for the clock..... I'm going to keep the same location, but I'm going to buy one of those factory silver Subaru din boxes with a door that closes.. to hide it. One of these:

    You know... I've never actually seen a factory WRX turbo out of the car...

    But I kind of expected this massive, spare-tire sized Turbo to show up at the door.

    Then I open this donut looking thing--LOL

    Thats ok though.... I know what its capable of

    Damn that's awesome work you've done. I wish I knew half of the things you were talking about, but I figure I'll learn some day.

    dude that's sexy... i wasn't surprised at how small they are cause I built an impeller style water pump a few years ago inspired by a turbocharger for a class in college and the thing was maybe 2 inches across and could pump a gallon of water across the room faster than you'd ever imagine running off a 9 volt DC motor. WOW nice run-on sentence lol.

    But yea. Congrats. Write up a how-to while you install it if you can!! It'll help me when I put a new turbo in my maybe new STI shortblock
