Project: Stepping Razor

Not sure if the Ralliart sub forum is still active but I'm going to make a personal progress thread anyways.

My vision for the car is to retain the factory turbine, braking system, and oem look. I'm a student who makes very little money working part time so I've finally finished the first stage of modifications to the engine/transmission.

These modifications include:
- ultimate racing fmic
- ultimate racing ic piping (upper and lower)
- ultimate racing short ram air intake
- Cobb 3 port electronic boost controller
- Cobb bpv
- ultimate racing turboback exhaust (single exit/ catless)
- slightly modified clutch basket from Kozmic Motorsports
- sst transmission flashed with s-sport and launch control
- dyno tune and sst tuning by Kozmic Motorsports 265whp and 305wtq
(Will update with dyno sheet)

The car is great fun and very reliable. It's amazing how the car performs after someone with real experience with the sst transmission gives it the "magic touch". BTW I can't thank the awesome folks at Kozmic enough for their expert work and willingness to teach me so much about the unique platform. Great people who are very knowledgeable.

Anyways here's some random pics of the car

















The gnarliest skid plate ever that Thompson racing fabrication made for the car.





The sportback and my jeep DD







Anyways thanks for reading my first post on my first thread! The car has been rolling on tien basic coils with random oem and aftermarket wheels so it's time to do new suspension, wheels, and tires. Yay!!!

Skid plate is made by Thompson Racing Fabrication located somewhere in Michigan. Got the skid plate years ago. The guy made skid plates for the evo x (specifically for rally competition) I asked if he could modify one to fit a ralliart and he did. It's really hardcore. Incredibly thick and described as "bomb proof" by Eric at kozmic Motorsports. It's definitely the most durable skid plate out there but you have to remove the whole thing for changing oil.

BBS Test Fit

BBS wheels and new Continental tires fit quite well. It looks like I'll have plenty of room for the 245's at "cool guy" ride height without hurting the performance. Pictures below show a basic test fit on the previous tein coilovers. Car is being fitted with ksport GT PRO coilovers while I try to figure out how to get a state inspection. Car is very close to being finished with its first phaze. Next post will be after the coilover install and BBS red and gold center caps. ($$$)

Those wheels are awesome! Are they from a MR?


Did you remove the plastic mesh in front of your intercooler?

Yes they are the forged aluminum bbs for the MR and I did remove the grill to show off the big front mount intercooler
