Hey guys the car is pretty much done, we have a couple more small things to be done, and then it will be off to the dyno to get her tuned. Once we have that done we will be hitting the track to shake her down, and dial her in.
Speaking of tuning, we just got our Hydra EMS from our friends over @ Element Tuning. We chose Hydra for a few simple reasons. The Hydra EMS should allow us to fine tune the engine so we don’t run into any tuning issues and will allow us to dial in the motor at each event we participate in. Function for function, the Hydra EMS is the best bang for the buck as it is almost 4 times cheaper than most EMS’s out there and offer the same tuning capabilities. The new software is much more user-friendly than the previous versions and is much faster to tune. Element Tuning provides pre-programmed base maps for most Subaru applications making this a TRUE plug-and-play EMS. The Hydra EMS is also the only EMS that offers full DBW support for 2004-2010 Subaru’s and fully closed loop AVCS control for both intake and exhaust cam timing.
Big thanks to Phil over @ Element Tuning for getting us the HYDRA in record time!
