Sharing data is what I, Matt, and Pat have done for years. You haven't done jack yet.

If you had bought the parts from me, you'd have paid thousands less. That means the shop you're working with is ripping you off. However, since I don't do mail-order business and, frankly, don't want your business anyway, you're just screwed.

Your right all these guys who know what they are doing are just bull ****ting you because your so much better. **** LOGIC
I respect that you are trying to work on your N/A..but making a thread then tell people they are wrong when they state something when clearly they have done it for years on you is pretty stupid. As far as me i am just seeing the stupidity and know nothing about your motor so i won't even go there.

I'm still interested in what pistons and headers the OP thinks he has.

Someone why buys parts that actually work doesn't usually use broad generalizations about them because they are specific and often expensive.

So I guess a mail order alignment and tire rotation is out of the question?

And to think that this could have been a constructive and contributing thread, had the OP simply come with somewhat articulated statement saying:
"Hey guys I have [DETAILEd list of mods], dynoed on [dyno] at [location] which overall cost me [XYZ $] with/without labour, what do you think? "

Le sigh.

Which is kinda hilarious since they stand a good chance of making less power than his 2010 stock headers.

and if you watch his little video and have a listen you can clearly hear a stock header.

So he's in luck that the good OE header is still on the car. Sad that he paid for parts+install of a borla though... Seems like a waste of money...

OP... what pistons are you running? You talked about preparing for turbo so you went with what pistons?

You should get these cams... I hear they are the best for turbo and n/a.

My car is a development mule. It's in a constant state of looking like crap because there's always a new dev part or prototype on it. Hell, I have that engine in and out so often I've actually worn out the threads in the bellhousing that hold the engine to the tranny.
Is your prototype intake in production now?

No, I could never come up with the cash for the initial run. I'm also not a NASIOC vendor so I couldn't have talked about it here if I ever did get it moving.

That's unfortunate, do you or would you assemble DIY kits for it then?

TiC has a set of silicone couplers to make a hybrid intake, you just have to supply the piping yourself. I went with a cheap one on eBay, since I was going to cut it.

Yup. I put the kit together while I worked at TiC. I didn't know they were still selling it. Just add pipe to the kit and you're good to go.

Would it fit a 2012 by any chance? I would assume the hybrid intake would be an universal application requiring only slight modifications for fitment.

The soft parts and clamps of the kit should be just fine for any Impreza. The only x-factor is coming up with a "donor" intake to come up for piping to cut apart and use.

Would you mind pointing me in the right direction as far as the soft parts and clamps go?

2 hump connectors, one reducer. The humps are 3", and the reducer is 3" to 2.75", but I'm not 100% on that.
