Oooo I wasn't expecting to see those extra cylinders. Was wondering why the intercooler had two extra inlets and outlets, going to be mental when it's done. All the best.

I had to delay posting pic of intercooler as on its own it asked more questions than it answered.

Lol @ frayz

I seem to have lots of room to run intercooler pipes and mount turbos to make the most of the core.. I actually think it will probably struggle when power gets up there but it should be a neat install and can be uprated further in future.

That cage looks like it will be a nightmare to get into the driving seat? will you have this up and running in time for to stand a chance on team 22b?

I only have little legs

side impact is the impreza's weak point imho, and to run fibreglass doors on a 2door I wanted to make sure it was strong for any side impact etc.. I hope to never test it.

I'd be annoyed if it wasn't running in time for scoobyshootout

I hope you don't get seats with the Hans system. Be good to see it run at scoobyshootout. I'll make sure I'm near you so I can watch you get intoyour car

Steve,

I have a car with a fairly intrusive bolt in cage at the moment and I am often in and out of cars with full cage (rally cars etc), so I would hope it wouldn't be too much of a problem.
If it is then first port of call will be a quick release steering wheel, then if I am still finding it annoying the bar that crosses from top of A pillar to cross bar will get adapted or removed.
The whole car is being build with no compromise - no heater, plastic windows, fibreglass doors, etc etc.. if I have to go back and put stuff in or take stuff out then so be it. The cage has been built to msa rules from chromoly and no compromise on strength taken, my main concern is side impact or rolling, which I think is covered here lol.

tbh I don't care what I look like getting in and out, if the worst happens I hope I can at least get out, even if it is dragged by the back of my neck rather than trapped in a squashed wreck.

I think anyone running power over 500 and doing track / drag / sprint events is stupid not to have a cage, I hope to be running considerably more than 500 hence I have gone overboard on the cage.

What turbo setup are you planning? Does it have to be a big turbo due to the size of the engine?

Going twin turbo although one large one has appeal.

But plan is to run two small turbos to begin with and see how it goes and possibly use larger ones later.
