    Thanks everyone! I just updated the front page with some additional photos (including some dump truck carnage!).

    I'm down to go to Singapore. I don't know if I mentioned it or not but I live in Upstate NY.

    As far as money goes, although I work myself to death and make a decent living I wouldn't have been able to put this together if I had to pay someone to do it. Connections with sponsors (especially JNA...) have really helped out. I originally bought this car for four grand. I have a ton into it at this point, but up until just before I started going with the JDM swap I had less than $10k into the car. I had a feeling that this was a diamond in the rough, it just needed some polishing. Still polishing, I'll let you know when I'm done hahaha.

    I'm an internet sales manager and my fathers been a tech here since before I was born, if you ever need anything at all just let me know!

    It always helps to see this car in person too, pictures don't give it the right justice.

    I spoke with you on Unysoc a while back! I forget who your sales person was but I remember that well. I hope you're enjoying your 13!

    Update: Dyno pull video at the bottom of post two.

    Afterthought: A lot of people ask me what my thoughts are on the 207. I see threads all the time arguing between building a 205, dropping in a 207 or going with the 257 and this is where I stand on the subject.

    The 205 is a very reliable motor. I love them, I've put 200k on two of them so far and they have never EVER let me down. With that being said they are extremely limited, especially in the realm of the heads when we are talking about the value of a built motor. Too many people get hung up on a rotating assembly and forget that the motor is still only going to breath so well.

    I do not enjoy the 257 at all. I have spent the least amount of time with this engine, but most of that is by choice. It seems unrefined to me, but I can appreciate its potential for producing torque. We won't touch on the 'blowing pistons out the top of the block' subject. Faster spool is a beautiful thing, but at "high" rpms it feels like a rattlebox to me. You really have to drive a 207 to understand what I'm saying, which brings me to the next part...

    The 207 is flawless. The heads flow great from the factory, the internals can handle a TON of power, and at 8,500 rpms it feels like it isn't even struggling. I will gladly sacrifice 1,000 rpms of spool to harness that type of power up top. The 3076 is a big of a pig on the streets when you're down low so it takes a different driving style but once you get used to it, you really learn how to use the close ratio six speed to your advantage.

    TLDR: I like the 207 a lot.

    Good memory, that was me. Dan Marcy sold me and my buddy our WRX's, too bad he moved he was a good guy. Love the car I'll look for you next time I'm in.

    Overall, it's a little much for my taste.

    However.. the paint job and wheels look flawless. Also gotta love a Borla exhaust. Very nice choices.
