Post SVX-T updates 2

Well I took the SVX on a 400mile round trip to phoenix this past weekend And it did great with no fuel management mods It didn't ping once and I didn't notice the computer taking out timing whatsoever. I ran the A/C full blast most of the time the temp gauge didn't move at all. I averaged about 25MPG which is good for my lead foot driving style.

The only problem not related to the turbo is I thing the power steering pump is going out it is not as loud as it was before but now it makes a funny noise

Will there be any more KIT's? I know that this may seem like a dumb question but right now my SVX is in the shop, I will get it back soon. It's a 92 ls-l getting most if not all the engine seals replaced, water pump, power steering pump, and timing belt as well. I was one of the first people to get the Level 10 transmission done for the SVX. Stage 3 w/ high stall torque converter. After all the work i've put into it, I beleive that it might be ready for a turbo. If money allows, where are the best leads to get my hands on one.
Also have you done any intake or exhast mods?

The only place I know of offering a SVX turbo kit is Forced Air Technologies. The car is all stock except a K&N panel filter and the turbo kit

Damn you Level 10 trannied SVX owners. Just leave the car alone and sell it for cheap to someone like me. I'll take care of it. You must let go of the past and move on to bigger better things. Aren't you tired of your SVX by now? *Fingers crossed*

Kastle,

I'm trying to see how much $$$ I can get and how much I have to pay monthly, how I would get the car to me, etc, etc. I am very interested though. I'll let you know what's going on. If you get a good offer, go with it.

I just noticed that the turbo site says they are seeing a 100hp gain. A 100HP Gain That's amazing! If you are pumping out at least 330hp, you should be flying. Hrmmm!

I'm not actively trying to sell it any more, but I would to someone who cares for Subaru's like I do. I know you'd give it a good home.

Thanks for the info. Looks like I might have to save up for it. It's a little expensive don't you think?
