its still sad that these things give out after 4000 miles at 400lb ft or 335whp or 400 whp with 400 lb ft wtf is the difference..the point is that shouldn't be enough power to require a rebuild of a factory boosted engine..the point has nothing to do with all possible subaru torque to hp ratios.
why don't you go do some nice drag launches with your built tranny..im sure it wont explode or anything
It's 100% the crap stock pistons that do it to our engines. The internals on a stock EJ257, excluding the pistons :P, are good for 450whp/wtq easy. Drop in a set of pistons and you're good to go for the most part.
And I agree, Ben go to the track!!
