With good fuel and high boost you should have no trouble getting up into the 700-800WHP range, and probably into the 9's.

Is it remaining a street car, or will it be track only? If you strip it, cage it, and run slicks then 9's all day shouldn't be a problem. Do you have the long gears in yet? I just did a 6 speed swap with the Spec B long gears installed and they're great! Nice even spacing and a long 5th and 6th for cruising.
Jr's confident that 800+ will be no problem

I haven't decided yet. We are going to cage it, and most likely strip it in the process. I don't have the gears in yet, but Jr and I are planning on doing it soon . We got a set of Brake Man rear drag brakes just so I can run some nice beefy slicks at the track

As for your tranny options I have had a straight cut 5 speed and now I have the Spec B gears (ie. RalliSpec High Speed Gears) in a 6 speed. I like the 6 speed better, and if you have the STI tranny already it's the cheapest option as well. No brainer to me. Unless you find an 07+ STI tranny for dirt cheap and then swap the whole thing. But the full Spec B gearset gives you the nice cruising ratios in the high gears.
I was going to say that car seemed to accelerate a little fast

Matt offered me his straight cut PAG 5 speed, and Jr found me a full '07 swap, but like you said, the SpecB ratios are the cheapest route, and most people seem to prefer them over the straight cut gears and the '07 swap.

The shop itself is pretty cool though. Only ever been there a couple times, but they always have lots of nice muscle cars
STiMikey is in CT isn't he? Apparently he is a god of street tuning?

That video is probably a 9.9 or 10.1 run. Something in that range.

I think you'll like the Spec B gears, but for drag 1st-4th the 07+ STI tranny is just as good. Seems like a lot of extra cost to do a full driveline swap if you're just going to be doing drag and throwing on slim brakes.

FML my tuner said to find the oil leak, put oil in it, and it will be fine. Drove it to work with no real issue. Now they're telling me not to drive it. I'm confused as ****.

Thanks! Heads are already built and ready to go, turbo kit has been done for a while, fuel system should be done this week or so (waiting for the rails to get back from the machine shop; they had to order a new bit), block should be done within the next two or three weeks.

All the fuel lines and fittings came in yesterday. Came out to like $850 just in lines and fittings. We thought it was gonna be like $200

I'll get the actual car back when the fuel system is done. Then we just need to wait for the new block. Not sure if I wanna tune it on the current built block, or just wait for the new block.

I'd wait. You've been waiting forever, might as well wait and do it right.

You need to call them out on their bull****. Around here we have contact 6 for the new, they'll get you everything and then some, usually.

Did a little pull from 2nd to 3rd today and probably hit just under 6k when I noticed that my clutch instantly became harder to press and almost vibrated when I pushed it down.

It gradually got better then went away. I tried to duplicate this to see if it would happen again and it did. When I got out of the car to check under the hood I heard like a rotational squeak that went away whenever I pushed down the clutch even a little. You guys have any ideas?

This would be the problem I'm having: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1927112

And this is the noise:
