what ever happened to him? he still around?TBeck2000 said:I had accumulated all of the parts necessary to do a basic 5SFTE about 4-5 years ago. I had modded my NA engine with cams, head work, increased compression and header and I still wanted a little more power. I didn't get a chance to do it because my 5S spun a bearing and was scrapped in favor of a 3SGTE. I still have a couple pieces from back then like the intercooler and some intercooler piping (if you need them). I ended up selling most of my parts to a guy in high school in Kingsville, TX. I haven't heard if he ever got the setup running.
Mark (DSM-2-WRX on the old board) from Salem, OH did a 5SFTE a couple years ago. He didn't go too crazy with it and it was pretty fun. We took to a dyno here in Pittsburgh and it made 180 rwhp and 208 ft-lb. Here's a link to the video I took: http://beck.nbcpgh.org/5sfte dyno.wmv [1.47 MB]
yeah, i remember that car from the meet we had in columbus in summer '03TBeck2000 said:He sold his '91 with only like 30k miles on it. He still has his WRX last I heard. He got married and then fell off the face of the earth. Last time I talked to him was in early 2004.
damn you, i would have taken that pipe. :thumbdownTBeck2000 said:You can have them for $20. They aren't doing me any good. It's a stock 3SGTE intercooler and the hot pipe (which holds the BPV). I think that's all I have that would help you out on the 5SFTE.
Ok, i dont need them right away, but next mr2 meet, we'll meet up sound good??TBeck2000 said:You can have them for $20. They aren't doing me any good. It's a stock 3SGTE intercooler and the hot pipe (which holds the BPV). I think that's all I have that would help you out on the 5SFTE.
