Hey, thanks a lot for the information. You're right about the intake in terms of minimal gains.
I definitely had an interest in the water/alcohol injection kit for quite some time. If anything, I was looking at the HFS-6 from Aquamist because of its quality fittings, fail-safes, and clean set-up. However, the unit costs approx. $900, plus installation, and another tune. Easily takes the budget to the mid-1000's. I noticed that my clutch springs are starting to pop at "spirited" driving and quick shifts, so that will be the next upgrade - clutch kit and light weight flywheel. That also will cost about $1600 (tri-state area cost). =P
I feel as if I am married to a high maintenance garage queen.
Yes, Wasilla, AK is a bit far for me to travel to for some car work. I've never been to AK before, but have heard a lot about the Subaru community there. Maybe one day.
