    Wink 951 vs WRX (closed road of course)

    Saturday was nice here so I thought it was time to see what the 951 can do on dry (cold) roads. I did a couple fast runs to Nisku and back. It's cool to get going ridiculously fast well before its time to merge with 120kph traffic! In the afternoon, my WRX friend and I went for a rip before the snow started. From a roll on I can drop the WRX pretty quick... from a stop is another story.

    The WRX JUMPED 2 carlengths up off the line while I was waiting for the turbo to spool up... Turbo spools up and I got nothin' but wheelspin. Another carlength to the WRX. The shift into second was more of the same, good acceleration, but traction limited. By the end of third gear I had not only realed him in, but put 2 of my own carlengths in front of him. Fun times until I got trapped in 1 cm of snow and had to drive like a granny to get my car back to the parkade.

    Sounds like you could use an AVC-R ! Something with gear dependant boost control !

    hehe he needs a bigger turbo more than anything. Those K26's are tiny! Took me a few years to figure that out, after swapping out all the boost control crap out of my 951 hehe.

    Bigger turbo, that's in the future. This summer I think will be the MAP upgrade and like you suggested rage2, a real BOV. That will probably cure the loud "WOOF" from my exhaust between shifts when I'm workin the turbo . I expect things to improve when the tires and road are warm.

    Rage: How did you make out with the wastegate valve seat? Did you manage to find one?

    Justin: Nice looking 951. I look forward to seeing it live in person this summer some time.

    Nice kill

    Get a Garrett on that baby and you will really be flying.
    Another good investment would be an LSD if you don't already have it, and it sounds like you might not.

    No Dyno Sheet yet but I hope to make 400RWHP @24 PSI
