We are here just about every day at ICS and usually all night so come by anytime

Today, interestingly, we had a PART II of the famous Porsche Turbo vs Subaru STI match up. This time we did a genuine run from a dig instead of a minor match up on a roll from an off ramp. I pity the owners of the Porsche Turbos - I must have had him by 10 cars. Man of those who followed part I on my You Tube channel were upset that we did not do a scientific enough match up. I thought that the video was good to just get into the mind of the typical Porsche owner. Anyway, today we decided to square off and settle it once and for all. I trhink I am loosing my mind as all I can think about is racing my STI. I keep looking for some worthy competition but sadly thus far nothing has come close. I even tried racing Suman's 678 whp evo and sadly it did not match up - all the videos are up

Your right actually, I am going to quit while I am ahead and I just traded in the STI and EVO for a Honda FIT. The parts and accesories manager was kind enough to equip my new FIT with a speed govenor to limit me to 55 mph, this way no matter how hard I depress the tps I cant go faster than 55. Thanks so much for all your help.

For a minute, I thought I was in the Pruven Power Bragging section and now I realize that I was in the wrong place.

I did not edit that one yet but it will be up by tomorrow - (assuming that I am not incarerated by that time) It was a good one as we took a customer we were tuning with a LGT wagon along as witnesses to verify that the testing was done in a even handed and fair manner.

George said that even though I won by a huge margin I was still comming back in a "tin can"

Honestly, I was suprized how cheap those 01 and 02 Porsche Turbos have become - they picked this one up with 40 k miles and the Stage Stage III kit for $44,000 - not bad. I still prefer my STI.

This is a project i have been watching forever, again congrats on your STi for breaking in the 10`s i kno it was very frustrating ealier breaking half shafts and all, Your STi has come along way and i respect it more knowing it carries full weight plus the fact its a heavy car straight from factory. Soon it could be in the 9`s with your Evo.

Based on his location I'd be willing to bet it's 93 + meth.

The Hydra 2.6 has proven to be world class stuff

I have been driving the car since March with the same set of spark plugs, I have not touched the tune since I got it arranged with the 2.6. The box is super consistant day to day, zero head aches. Amazingly, I have not had any rod bearings fail

The Hydra is a very good product and with all the new 2.6 features it has made it even easier to tune and set up.

I had the trans set up by Ralli Spec in New Jeresy

What ever they did works very well at a very reasonable price

I dont want to disclose their trade data on which gears they use but they are great gears if you have a 04 or an 05 its a great upgrade

When we made the Porsche video last night we got come footage on a 480 whp Z06 vette with the license plate - Wlcm2try - sadly - the car was no buffon and even through his license plate said welcome to try - he knew better and declined the chance to race my Subaru. I took him for a ride and made a believer out of him when I put all 550 TQ down to the ground with zero tire spin. He was glad he did not accept my offer for double or nothing on his dyno time fee.
