Mendeola Suspension on a tube frame. The goal is to run Pikes Peak at least once and then street drive it. I will have two separate bolt in cages, one Pikes, one Street.

There are supposed to be a lot of very cool parts on the way right now. Looking for the little brown truck to come driving up! Once the engine/trans is built out, I can determine mounts and height for rear body and start bending DOM.

Volkdent the engine is a low mileage 2004 STi with a Tigwerks build on exhaust headers, water to air intercooler, billet TGV deletes, 900 DW injectors, Boomba racing big throttle body and a Blouch 20g-xtr turbo, HydraMist and Hydra 2.7, . All exhaust and turbo hot section are Swain Tech White Lightning coated. TurboSmart Racing BOV and Wastegate. Coast Fabrication muffler with Tigwerks wastegate muffler both for street use. Exhaust tips in honor of the great 908/3. Will go with a built longblock after a shake out period. Should be fine at this HP level for now considering low weight. Falkens for street and track rain, also have some NT-01's for dry, Pikes will be Hoosiers.

Damn Randy, you're getting serious! That is an awesome project! BTW what steering rack are you using? Do you have it in your bug also? Any pics of it? Right now I'm looking at a VW Polo/Golf 1-2 steering rack.

That is the 996 RSR steering rack right hand drive from Flying Lizards. It is an experienced part...

How are you in with Flying Lizard Racing?! Love that group, fun to watch. They used to be based out of Sonoma Raceway near me then they moved to CT. I liked to drive by and drool.

The factory allows some assistance to old friends with old parts...
The Lizards are great people and a great team. Hope they can hold out for the new 991.
