As claimed in the Gallery thread, he took the car out for around 80 miles in 85 degree weather without any heating issues, claiming it held stock or near stock levels.

This is all very exciting! Can't wait to see the numbers, as well. Also really interested in the torque curve.

from what I've been told the only let down IMHO is the internals weren't changed out....please tell me I'm wrong and that Kienan isn't on cast pistons at least...

You just have to nitpick dont you. We are planning a motor this winter. So how are your cast pistons working for you?

well, comparison of different turbos and spools on different systems is like a GC with a STi swap again an STi and STi saying well I can loose 500 lbs and weigh the same as you...but then hey guess what, so can the GC...so the UR35 comment is kinda off point...
and for the price point, if you are buying a twin turbo kit, the mods to get that manifold swapped are pennies on the dollar...
and you're right, this has nothing to do with fuel efficiency, just performance...less lag and cooler air for the motor... less heat soaked piping in the engine bay...
BUT shinny pipes are pretty

from experience i've noticed twin turbos vs a single turbo capable of putting out the same pressure ratio and hp, the twins tend to be less efficient (more heat in the charge) but spool faster

the spool depends on the twins, there A/R and trim...obviously but do have the potential for more power based on moving more CFM...hints why I hope he put in forged pistons...get the boost up and get the CFM up!!!
the thermal efficiency is less though as you said...more heat loss through piping and exhaust housings...

tell UPS to hurry up...I wanna see some numbers...we already dyno'ed "our shop's" twin turbo set up...

That's basically what a TT kit does. Adds price, looks AWESOME, performs worse than a nice single.

At least that's what I've observed..

GF's are great to have on the boards! I LOVE YOU WRXPOSER!!

HomemadeWRX has cast pistons and stock everything else. Don't think that's a relavent comment.

I love the TT setup on big K's car. I love it when people do things themselves. I did my setup myself too. That's why my cars engine bay is sooo ugly!

a properly setup sequential design TT setup will give a broader torqe curve. Yes it's very likely to be less efficient. but why not have great daily driveable torque down low and some serious screaming power up top? It IS possible.

The Legacy B4 is an example of a nice (not perfect) TT setup. Mine needs work (designed in 1993) there is a huge valley of death at 4krpm.

Cool, hope it stays that way, is 85 hot over there? That sounds cool, but then again I'm biased living in Cali

I'm curious though, any reason he chose that radiator? I assume the width of the stocker was an issue, but wasn't there anything bigger? I suppose if the ambient temp doesn't hit triple digits you can go with something smaller.

if anyone has really looked at the size of the core of the stock radiator, I think they would be suprised with how thin it is. This radiator is over twice as thick and it's half as wide, so really, it should still do pretty well. I wouldn't be too concerned with that radiator.
Our cores aren't anywhere near as big as our end tanks. our radiators are actually pretty pathetic.

Subscribed...and it looks awesome. I hope it works out for you as I am sure it will benefit the Suby community. Excuse the doubters, but we have all been down this road with the TT H6 that was supposed to be the all that of Subarus, only to here that guy ripped people off, leaving the car as a museum piece being towed around to little cars shows---like a midget in a carnival. Or the turbo/supercharged rex from a few years ago, with the supposedly super torque curve plus unbelievable top end. As much as I dislike Evo's, there freaks usually run 9's. Looks are one thing, but no more pimp my ride......please.
