Spi sedan rally build ?
Hi I don't think ive posted in this forum before and I have some questions
Now I know the spi has a bad rep but that's what I have to work with and
I'm trying to make my se a rally car and here's what I've done so far

1.) ksport rally suspension
2.) magnaflow exhaust and high flow cat
3.) spectre air filter
4.) brembo brakes with cross drilled and slotted rotors
5.) sport aluminum radiator

Yeah it's just the basic stuff I know but here's what I'm also looking to do if you guys would recommend it. You know more than I do.

1.) ECU tune
2.) mustang throttle body
3.) custom built headers
4.) rebuild the head and valve seats
5.) lighter wheels

I don't know if I would use the drilled part of the rotors.

I have a few of the things you might want though (spectre air filter or spare intake tube and maf, header and flex pipe section, spare throttle body to port etc.... hell actually even the magnaflow exhaust and high flow cat) PM me if interested because I need to get rid of it by next week.

Doesn't need to have a lot of power to be a rally car though. In fact its probably better to start with a slow car. But then again the SPI is not quite as fast in the first place.

Edit: what kind of rally are you trying to do as well? I believe you will need a roll cage as well BUT I cannot remember regulations for it especially since I don't know what you want to do with it.

My mistake, I see you already have the exhaust and stuff though. Do have a header for you [hihi]

I would like to start out in rally cross. Im not trying to make it in the wrc. Im trying to make my car look like a rally car and so far it's been coming out pretty well, but if it looks like a rally car it should perform like one. (I don't mean 300hp) but you know just something to make it I guess better than it was before. If I can upgrade It and get about 175hp-200hp I'll be happy. I think It's got bewteen 125hp and 140hp now.I haven't dynoed it yet. But yeah If you have some headers that will fit, I'll see if my dad will allow it. since the car is in his name I have to talk to him first, and if he does I'll Pm you. How much are you looking to sell them for and what kind are they?

What chassis work have you done? Seam welding, strut tower reinforcement etc.?

The front strut towers are known to fail...

Shoot me a PM if you have questions. We have 3 Rally Focuses...

yeah I've been looking at those. but I'm kind of hesitant now since my freinds dad said he saw my parents at the mitsubishi dealership where he works looking at a lancer ralliart. that's one of the cars i was looking at getting in the future if something happened to the focus. I dont want to put money in the focus and then find out they just bought me a Ralliart.I just found this out saturday, and they aren't saying nothing about it. so it may be a suprise graduation present I don't know.
