I believe 378whp / 418wtq is the most power ever made on an 18G. I'd be interested to be proven wrong though

Not really, but I do have a rear end shot from the West Coast Subaru Show this summer.

I like how you took one of the reflectors out of your headlight. Looks a lot better.

Thanks y'all. I'm currently collecting parts and saving cheese in order to install a destroked 2.3L built block with cams. When that time arrives, I'll be moving to a Dom3xtr Turbo and a 44mm external wastegate with the Methanol Injection. She should be making around 450whp once complete.

Going to be picking her up, sometime this week, from MPS with a FULLY built 2.5L motor (check the first page of thread for specific modifications) pushing a Blouch Dom3xtr (10cm / 3") with a Tial 44mm EWG. I have a 750-1k mile break in period, then we'll strap her to the rollers and see what she pulls.

Here is the Methanol Dyno chart from the Dom3xtr's previous owner. He was running methanol (as I will be) on a stock block.

Driving to Maxwell Power Services (MPS) to pickup the car, with new motor, today. 750-1k mile break in period, then a power tune. REAL excited to see her.

First impressions, 60mph rolls at 2300rpm, 70mph rolls at 2700rpm (where 60 used to be at). The motor idles SUPER smooth. Also, the Whiteline steering rack bushing made a noticable improvement in steering feel and feedback. The car is no longer 'twitchy' and difficult to track. Once this 750-1k break in period is achieved, I'm definitely stoked to see what she pulls. Looking for 480whp.

So, I guess I'm an idiot, because if the final drive ratio on the car hasn't changed (which it hasn't), this must not be the case. Although it sure feels like the rpms are less at 60mph. I must've never cruised at 60mph with the stock motor... That could be the case.

Maxwell Power Services

That whole crew is a good group. If they weren't here in WA. I'd never chosen to build a new motor. Very trust worthy, INCREDIBLY knowledgeable.

Completed the first oil change, yesterday, at MPS. A bit over 200 miles into the 1k break in period before the Dyno. Also decided to buy and install the Agency Power Equal Length headers before power tuning. My Unequal Length Gruppe-S header has suffered some wear and developed an exhaust leak. Plus, equal length should be good for 10whp.

Looking forward to seeing that final Dyno Plot. The motor idles, runs and REVS so smooth now.

Default Initial Impressions

Initial impressions:

Off boost, the car drives like stock. The Turbo lag is greater than my 18G on the stock block, but with the added torque of the built motor, this is largely negated off boost.

The motor revs extermely fast, this is especially apparent when rev matching off boost. It makes throttle blipping downshifts a true joy.

You better be thinking about 2nd as soon as you give 1st some throttle. From a slow roll, 1st gear revs out in what feels like 1 second... Honestly, it feels like more of an experiment in radical physics than an experience of acceleration.

I was prepared for the wastegate to sound like loud lawn mower once open, however it really just ROARS. I think using a 44mm gate, rather than a 38mm unit, is necessary if you want good tone.

In short, the car is FAST. Pulls hard through 7k. Although the redline is now at 8k, I've yet to take it there. It just feels like abuse. Plus, I've yet to find a public road where I can really exercise full shifts through the box. It'll go from 20-80 in what feels like 4 seconds.

The car recently passed 111k miles and is running flawlessly. Overpowered if anything, definitely enough to get into trouble. Recently took it on the track for the first time, was a ton of fun.

Just got a new camera, first thing to do... Take photos of the car

Discussed the possibility of replacing the 10cm hotside on my stock location 3" Dom3xtr with a .82 hotside, rotating the turbo, using existing external wastegate. MPS had rotated kits manufactured for them and seemed interested to fab a cold air intake.

I will be selling my Perrin Dual Tube DP, GrimmSpeed UP, Fujita Cold Air Intake and AMR 3" Turbo Inlet.

The 3" Dom3xtr in stock location made 470whp, 436wtq on methanol and lost boost post 6500 rpm with 8k red line. It will be really interesting to see what difference rotating the turbo makes with no other changes.

The dropping the car off at MPS for install May 28th, dyno tuning on the 29th.

Real excited to see what this lil' turbo can do.

- 12_7_13 - 124,300 miles - PIA fully rebuilt transmission, differentials, installed new ACT HDSS and KW V3s (bought used with 7k miles).

Trans:
- Thigh Speed 2nd-6th Long Gear Ratio Conversion
- REM Treated Synchro (1st-6th)
- Carbon-reinforced 4th, 5th, and 6th Gear Synchro Rings
- Shift Fork 6MT, 1st/2nd Gear - Ver.9
- Shift Fork 6MT, 3rd/4th Gear- Ver.8/9
- Shift Fork 6MT, 5th/6th Gear - Ver.8/9
- STi R180 Pressure Ring Set
- STI LSD Overhaul Kit - Rear R180
- Side Axle Seal, Rear Differential
- ACT HDSS Clutch

Man, that R180 pressure ring set upgrade is AMAZING. Makes an incredible difference through a turn under power. No longer does it understeer like crazy on throttle, and snap over steer off throttle… Now it just oversteers evenly. Feels a lot like a rear-drive through bends under throttle.

And when people say the KW V3s can feel like a stock M3 when setup correctly, it's true. Not to mention the longer gear ratios, this phase of my build truly exceeded all expectations.

Grimmspeed Radiator Shroud and Alternator Cover Installed… Really feels like I have a lot more downforce on the front end through the reverse vented scoop delete. That and the 07 Rear Diffuser really keep the car from lifting through turns.

Getting a JLAudio W3, new Amp, new wiring install tomorrow.
At this point I'm on the bucket list mod wagon.
