    if i had 130 to the wheels i'd either sell it or get a new engine because it would surely be broken :lawl: 35% drivetrain loss seems like a bit much, imo. people seem to be in the 160s to the wheels all stock. not that that's much of a difference, or much at all haha, but when you're a bottom feeder you'll take what you can get :lawl: we won't talk about tq though :hide:

    but yeah, you definitely have out powered those brakes haha. i'd even like to upgrade mine mildly, so i wouldn't even want to think about them with your power numbers :ugh:

    lol, it's not even the power, its the weight of this pig. Every other car (besides the BRZ's) at the track day had Brembo's (all STi's) so with my power near equal to theirs and the brakes of a car that weighs 500lbs less....yea

    oh alright, i didn't think they were that heavy haha. i just looked it up, edmunds says 3208lbs. not too bad, but with a driver i could see it being a bit heavy. v6 8th gen accord coupes weigh about what your car weighs with a driver, so you've got that going for you :lawl:

    Those look good.

    I thought I read somewhere that the ATS/CTS calipers could be used on the 6GA/2G TL as well?

    Anyone recall reading anything like that?

    Updates as of today -

    Started the process of getting a motor built-
    Spare EJ255 block - bored to 99.75mm
    Wiseco 8.9:1 pistons
    Manley Turbo-Tuff rods
    oem crank
    King bearings

    Should net me north of 400whp and equal amounts of torque with the turbo I have for it.

    You're probably thinking of that.

    Tell me more about this, do you get to drive the full track?
