That makes four of us. I'm going to begin to stockpile starting.....now.

Until I hit the lottery I think my dreams of TS and an EFR are out of the question, but I think on an M20 an HTA3076 (59lb/min, 54.8mm inducer) would be quite nice. I only need 300-350whp, as I don't wish to compromise the stock bottom end/drivetrain.

The front diff is the weakest point in the iX drivetrain, but without clutch kicks, it is normally pretty stout up to 500whp or so.

Fuel is simple

Megasquirt PnP (whodwho)
Siemens 60lb inj
Walbro 255

Clutch will have to be a solid disc since I don't care about because racecar anymore so: Spec Stage 2+ (400wtq rating)

The only problem: Someone needs to make me a manifold, cuz I can't afford a $1600 manifold. And if I can't find a reasonably priced manifold solution, I'm buying this and burning everything but the IC pipes, manifold, and downpipe. I think with use of a Tial 38mm gate and Tial BOV, FMIC with Garrett core, and a real turbo, the kit wouldn't actually be that terrible, minus the fact that it's open scroll.

I at least finish the projects before I sell them, come on you know that!

The touring was nice the day it left. I should've made it nice a day or two before it left though.

I am the opposite of sad. The Forester is still broke. I kinda wanna sell that now too (after I fix it).

I hate cars.

I saw yours back up on the IG! Mine consumed a left rear wheel bearing and front right ball joint. And I also can't find a timing belt sticker and she's got 110K on her, due at 105K, so I have a timing belt kit here that I have to throw on too.

The wheel bearing has been giving me hell because of the famous 12" exposed through bolt that holds the spindle to the lateral arms. Air hammer + torches didn't even budge it, I had to soak it for 3 days and finally got it off and pressed the new bearing in tonight.

I was an idiot and didn't bring a jack when I went to Seldon to look at it. He promised me it was good for inspection and since he was a dealer I thought that meant he had to be telling the truth....I was, however, very incorrect.

I'm growing immune to it now. I went over it on the lift, shrugged, and ordered parts haha. I don't know if that's a good or bad thing.

I think when I'm done these few things it'll be pretty reliable, or at least I'm hoping. If not it'll be a repeat of the past: buy-->fix-->sell-->repeat

i could maybe make one for you, probably pretty cheap if you just wanted a basic log-type manifold

Something like this I feel would suit a mild build just fine. Your thoughts?
