Default 2008 Subaru STi - AMR Race FMIC / AMR T60R / AMR Direct Port Meth / 25psi @ 3800rpm

We apologize to the moderators for having "links" to our store.

Update:

Well after finishing up all of the customers vehicles, I had some free time to play with mine. Here is the conclusion!



Modifications:

- AMR BMI Cold Air System
- AMR T60R Bolt-on Turbocharger
- AMR 750cc Injectors
- AMR Race Front Mount Intercooler
- AMR TGV Deletes with match P&P
- AMR Direct Port Meth Injection
- AMR Electronic Boost Control Solenoid
- Turbo Hard-Pipe Inlet
- Equal Length Headers
- COBB AP v2.0 tuned by AMR



"STOCK vs NOW" Dyno Sheet:





Tuning Notes:


Boost: 25psi by 4000rpm
AFR: 10.5
Timing: Conservative



Thoughts:

Well all I can say is WOW. With just cam tuning and AFR's still in the 10.5 area I was able to achieve 25psi with the T60R by 4000rpm. The car is extremely violent. Breaks all tires loose. I know what you all are thinking, why dont I lean it out make more power? Well I am already 60wtq past the limit in which we take stock engines to (stock 201whp) and 19whp above the limit I take the HP too.

You can tell by the HP falling off near redline that the car could use some more timing along with bringing the AFR's to 11.5 should net another 20-30whp. Not to bad for 3-4 dyno pulls! But for now, I will leave her here!


New Product:

The release of our AMR Race Front Mount Intercooler!!!



What separates our FMIC from competitors?


- Perfect Fitment!!!
- Fits with FOG LIGHTS!!!
- NO eliminating of factory components!!!
- NO clearance issues!!!
- NO cutting to fit piping!!!
- Counter clock wise flow!!! (keeping the heat with the heat)
- 6061 U.S. Made Aluminum!!!
- Mandrel Bent Tubes for smooth flow!!!
- AMR HUGE 4" Thick 1000HP RACE CORE!!! (available in black or silver)
- T-Bolt Clamps!!!
- Available in wrinkle red, wrinkle black or brushed aluminum!!!
- Available with TiAL Blow off Valve or Flange for factory/aftermarket blow off valves.
- Made in the U.S.A. (in-house)




Quick Pictures:

looks great! I have been looking at the T60R for a little while know and have been wondering what it would look like on my 06 wrx. I have a 20g now and it spools good but lacks the top end power that I am looking for. Great turbo guys!

I want your FMIC kit for my STI...too bad I'm not going to upgrade my turbo this year or probably next unless I come across some very spare cash

But the T60R seems like a great choice!! Can we get some specifics about this turbo? Numbers look great.

Default stupid fm

That's the stupidist front mount IC design i've ever seen.

Did AMR ever hold an IR camera to that thing to check the temps across it?

When both the hot pipe and cold pipe are at the top of an intercooler, as with this one, you can bet that 80% of the fins below the top 5 rows of cooler channels never get hot nor transfer any heat to the atmosphere.

That intercooler is 80% appearance, and 80% wasted metal.

AMR should have had the hot pipe enter at the bottom. If you did, your temp drop would have been better. The airflow would have not been impacted at all compared to the thing in the pictures.

That's what I was thinking when I asked what % was behind the bumper skin. Glad someone elaborated the problem better than me.

Our FMIC is designed to keep the factory fog lights and has zero fitment issues. Not only is fitment flawless but nothing is removed/cut off of the vehicle to fit this kit. Running the piping the way you are stating will not do anything as far as flow is conserned. We have done extensite testing and have found no difference in the inlet of the intercooler being in the top, bottom or middle. Tempature drops were the same regardless along with same pressure drop. Not to mention you will not be able to fit the fog lights. It is all about temperature.

We do not make a product just to make it. Our products go through alot of R&D time. Not to mention we track our vehicle to back-up our HP numbers.
The intercooler does its job and very well I might add. The core is extremely efficient. It all about the numbers.

Especially considering that a bar/plate flows really well so there is not as much motivation for the air to go through the lower channels.

IR camera to check for heat. Brilliant. Do you think Sony's Nightshot camera could be rigged up to check for heat patterns? Maybe through some software or something?

No one in the subaru community knows what that comment means.

AMR has been here since Subaru started and building/fabricating parts and race cars for over 50 years.

Great Job AMR!

What do you think about that cosworth ECU coming out?

Any chance you will make the modifications necessary to run this on the 05-09 LGTs?
