Default HYDRA Installed... FINALLY!

It's finally installed... After 18-19 months with a Hydra Nemesis 2.5 laying around at home in it's box, I finally installed it!

I took my 1999 RS-T to a local tuner (certified Hydra tuner) and left it there for a couple of days. Let me begin by saying that the car I picked up wasn't the same car I left there... It's hard to find words to describe how much of a difference there is. The car feels now like a "stock" car (besides the exhaust note and sick ass power delivery). Nice start up (cold or warmed-up), very nice idle, incredible throttle response, very linear power delivery and no stalling due to flow meter readings (actually it has been eliminated )...

The car is running a bit on the rich side for now @ 20psis... I'm planning to to go to the dyno next week to fine tune it and "lean it out" a bit. In a few weeks I will also install a Garrett GT3076R to see if I hit the 400 WHP with 93 octane...

That is what I thought, that red coolant line looks like mine . I got my hydra/jc turbo'd car running a few weeks back. I need to go to the dyno and fully tune it, but a lot of fun on the street tune so far.

Saludos boricua, el carrito se ve de show felicidades. Esa receta se ve muy bien, yo estoy ahora en el comienzo de hacer la forester mia turbo, nose si usar pistones fabrica y irme low boost, o tirarme con low compression y tirar mas o menos 10-12 libras.

nice setup! Too bad there are no competent Hydra tuners in my area. Do you know if your tuner ever makes trips to the US for group tuning days or anything like that?

Do you have to special order the side feed Spearco TMIC? It looks like that would feed much better than the STi twin rear feed.

Thanks,
Randy
