Talking Finally - my scoob returns

Its been off the road for 2 months after I cracked piston no.4, but today, after assisting in the rebuild, its back at home and the 1000 mile running in period has begun

Extra bits have been added to the car while its had the engine out, so my engine spec now reads:

2001 WRX bugeye
vf28 turbo
Afterburner Vortex turbo back decatted system
Haywood and Scott decatted up pipe
Lightened + balanced crank and conrods
Lightened + balanced pulley
Lightened + balanced Flywheel
STi V3 clutch
STi8 TMIC
Samco i/cooler + turbo hoses
JR panel filter
Bailey VTA dump valve
NGK6 platinum spark plugs (soon to be 7s)
Ecutec mapping (soon to be remapped again!)

Roll on Santa pod in 2006

Pete, Im not sure which version the turbo comes from, I had thought it was the P1, but im probably wrong

Peter, I had enough of the politics and general non caring attitude of my level 1`s and 2`s at BT. For me personally, leaving was the best thing to do.

Johnboy, I cant wait for remap time Im hoping for 300+ but we`ll see.
What engine mods and power figures did you get?
