Default Wes' Build thread

So, I'm pretty lazy and didn't document much of the build. However, the motor is sitting in the car and slowly but surely it's coming together.

Sounds good. If you want, PM me your number and I will text you or something next time I go. I'm hoping for less than a month from now.

I'm hoping for 350whp on boost and then a 125 shot on top of that. We will see how well my torsen and 6 speed hold up to that.

The car drives great with the 4 puck. Once i got used to it, I barely notice it. I've heard different opinions on what the springs are there for. Some people say they reduce the shock to the drivetrain from hard launches, some people say they reduce torsional vibrations in the drivetrain therefore reducing clutch shudder. Overall, this clutch is very smooth, a bit noisy, but smooth. I would not hesitate to drive the car in stop and go traffic.
