World’s Fastest Subaru BRZ...

If Subaru will sell me this car I'll trade in the 135 tomorrow. Unequal length header optional (but greatly preferred).

Chirping third, I love it!
Patience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears

You can follow their exploits here - http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=16680 It's just amazing how well this car is responding to being pressurized.

The pistons scare the bejeez outta me though. http://www.86forums.com.au/index.php?/t ... -from-avo/ They are like some kinda weird science experiment with a hi-comp Honda and a lo-comp Suby piston.

I'm on the edge of my seat to see when the engine's gonna go pop for the last time.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

Adding more than double atmospheric pressure to an already powerful engine works wonders. :P

Having worked with Ross at AVO before, I'm not surprised they're involved. Ross is an Aussie but runs the shop in Tokyo. His old man runs the one in Cheltenham and Paul runs the one in Seattle. Paul relocated back to the states after living in JP for many years (he's an accomplished photog, which is his "other" job).
