My VE aerial conversion in 85% complete. Next is the WRX driver seat conversion.Cable VP petrol flap conversion  Some rust repair after that and prime the car.

Wondering whether to do a first build and go a Group 3 kit in white and hot the 6 in it for approx. $3-4k or,

Do I keep at it and go the full build that I'm after with the Group C kit and Inj. 5L for approx. $6-8k?

just the cam for now mate,, it's a temp power increase to keep the adrenalin cells in my body happy until I can afford the major engine work to get done,
that will be an engine out torn down and completely rebuilt scenario, new bottom end, new heads, new cam and a new intake of the forced variety

Cam went in on Saturday, and got tuned today, turned the rollers to the tune of 280RWKW and 675nm
that is shy of what it could have been due to the fact it still has standard cast iron manifold, cats and exhaust pipes, and also because of the 3.9's,

but it feels so damn quick and responsive and should keep a smile on my face until we build our house and I can start spending money on it, the ssv and the VN again Smile)

Now to paint the OTR (polished alloy is not my thing) and try to make the old rad cover fit again with a few small cuts to make it fit around the otr Smile
