Well, here it goes. Build thread take #2. I bought this car with the intention of making it a project car. It's been a dream of mine for some time. I have weighed the pros and cons of my warranty, and decided that I am okay with taking the risk. If I have to fix something or buy a new engine out of my own pocket, then so be it. It’s not the end of the world for me. I have funds set aside if anything comes up. I will post pics and updates. I’ve had the car almost a year, and there have been a lot of people to help me along the way….. SubaPerformance in Denver, In Boost Performance and The Boost Creep in Longmont…random internet people with great deals on unused car parts… and, of course, some of our own family: @anarekist, @unseen, @Wrexic, @JaySin, @RichD514, and the late motosteve(before he went off the deep end).

awesome post!

glad to FINALLY read something on this forum where fellow members helped out each other and contributed to accomplishing something instead of sat behind a keyboard and complained/harassed.

Good luck on your upcoming build date, subscribed!

It’s good you’ve reposted this. The 4/3 stuff is I bet going to transform entirely your experience. I like your wheels too.

My build was delayed. There was a manufacturers defect in the killer b headers. The replacement just arrived, however- the problem now is getting tuned. Harvey @ The Boost Creep was three weeks out for a tune when I originally scheduled. They are installing a new dynamometer this week- then need to calibrate it, test it, etc. They are going to be down for a few days. After that, they are fully booked. It’s going to be at least another week. They’ve given me the option to pick it up and drive it in limp mode until tuning time, but think I might just wait it out. Haven’t quite decided on that, yet. Will update after tune. :)
