    Techna fit as brake lines with rear stop tech pads and rotors. Front will be evo x brembos.
    In channel wind deflectors for my windows.

    Missing :
    255lph fuel pump (still looking for the best way to cut under the back seats without having to drop the rear end)

    Various v-clamps, oil lines, oil sensors.
    New clutch along with a stainless steel clutch line.
    Missing an external oil pump for my transmission oil cooler setup.
    Will be adapting a Subaru wrx pitch mount as a 5th engine mount.

    Stay tuned!
    I've read the whole thread, I'm sorry for your accident

    Long time I haven't updated this thread.

    The sx4 will be officially worked on this fall. As soon as I find another car for winter, I will build it... so far, changing the turbo from a td04HL to a Garrett copy of the disco potatoe GT28XX. .AR60, 3 inch inlet... should work well and have more potential.


    Also ditching the brembos in favor of stoptech pads and rotors on all 4. Brembos are too heavy...

    Finally, polyurethane bushings on control arms and rear suspension beam, front and rear engine mounts. This should help minimize power loss to the wheels.

    Evo X brembos. Too heavy and don't have the time to adapt them.

    Quick update on my build :

    Fuel system is almost finished. In tank Grams 265LPH fuel pump, Wilson manifolds fuel rail along with an aeromotive fuel pressure regulator. Acura injectors.

    I decided to upgrade all available bushings to polyurethane : front swaybar, control arms and rear suspension beam.

    For convenience, I'm using a Godspeed vacuum to avoid hard to find vacuum leaks for fuel pressure regulator, blow off valve, external wategate and boost gauge.

    A carbon fiber vented hood to reduce weight upfront and to provide proper cooling.

    Only missing : tial external wastegate, Haltech Elite 1500, mishimoto slim rad fans, exhaust and tune.
