    I already had my vw stuff when i found the subaru adapter, subaru definitely is more modifiable. Boost is the only way to go Haha and these new duratecs have about 70hp more na than the old lima 2.3 and they react to boost so much better. I'd say a stockish lima on 10psi which is stock is about 180-200hp my 2.3 duratec on 11psi is supposed to be in the area of 300hp. The new tech is amazing and the engine isn't 500 pounds haha. It's a great platform and i hope it works out good in the buggy, but I'll always have a soft spot for the lima

    well the new duratec def sounds like it has a better bottom and and power band with modern tech. who can use another 70 ish stock hp lol i was just trying to point out the gearing on that trans before you got to far and btw very nice work on the chassis! i ran a comp test on my motor a week ago as i have had something to figure out. 190 to 195 psi 1 thur 4. i am flat tops and 9:1 c/r on e85 that's why it that high.

    Ive always been a fan of the higher compression lower boost builds, more usable power. I hope the gearing works its been my concern with this transmission but for the price and easiness i had to try it
