    Hey welcome back to the forum Kevin! Sounds like a bad deal on the drivetrain you paid for and sounds like the porsche guy has a poor taste in cars.

    I have nothing to say to you until you buy me and Josh lunch for the free windshield wiper motor and arms you got. Either use em or sell em and buy us lunch.

    Thank you for the proper pronunciation of Porsche. A Porch is something on your house. Porsch-e is how you say it correctly. I feel like a jerk any time I say it that way because I feel like a pretentious Porsch-e jerk, but how would you feel if people called you Keeeeeevin all the time? It's a name. Say it freakin right.

    No more severely discounted parts for you!

    BTW let me know if you need anything else. I'm about 2 weeks out from scrapping the old STi. Take whatever you want for free (that's not already sold).

    Pretty much whatever is left you can have man, you're a good guy. The side skirts are sold. The door panels are worth a little too much to justify giving away. If you wanted to get something like the front aluminum control arms, I'd give them to you if you help take them off with me. I'm honestly not sure what else is left. The motor/intake goes to AJ/ASRacing. There's not much left of the car as you've seen.

    You're welcome to come by my house again and pick through things if you want. Did the compressor swap end up fixing your problems? Of course with the broken idler pulley too?

    Maybe we can get together Thursday or Saturday?

    Haven't charged the system yet as both companies sent me the wrong o rings, even when they had the part numbers.

    WTF dude that's just messed up. They have detailed parts diagrams plus a computer to look things up.

    I don't have my kids Saturday so I should be around if you want to come by. If the weather is good I'll probably take the 911 out to have some fun but we can eat some BBQ off the grill and pull parts. I just want the car gone at this point!

    If the roads are clear we'll take the 911 for a drive Josh. You really need to understand the monumental leap between that and even a highly tuned Subaru. It's about speed. Doing 120 mph through a corner is nothing but fun and controlled. A whole different world...

    Obviously no knock against Subies for anybody reading this I just bought another STI.

    Eh, it's nothing Josh. I have almost a million miles or experience behind the wheel of some pretty crazy cars.

    Just don't get nervous at a 120+ mph power slide. I know what I'm doing.

    All of the other young members here that read this, slow the F down and learn how to drive. When you've done almost a million miles of driving, most of it in high performance cars, come talk to me. And NEVER EVER endanger anyone other than yourself or a willing passenger in a car that's designed to do these things. I can do almost 200 mph. Even without a limiter, any STI will be lucky to come close to 75% of these speeds, and won't handle as well. There's an enormous difference between street racing and driving what is essentially a very high performance race car on the street with nobody around.

    Then you better not get in my car. Hitting 150 isn't even a challenge............. Coming back from lunch the other day I topped 100 twice easily and don't know how much above that I went, but 120 is probably realistic. Huge engine and enormous brakes makes it easy, even on mountain roads. 120 is a joke given a 1/2 mile straightaway and 150 with a mile of road is a piece of cake.

    After I bought it I hit a new speed record in Oklahoma. I did 175 twice before I shut it down, and it had plenty to go but that was fast enough.

    Sounds sweet but you really have to trust someone to see those kinds of speed. I see 100-150 but over that is just scary...

    You won't be scared at 150. That isn't a fast speed for this car. I have great tires with no patches and I know how to drive. When we hit 150 you'll think we're just over 100. Can't compare it to anything you've probably ever been in. Let me know if you want to take me up on it.

    I can stick to 120 or 130 but you'll want to go faster.
