As I said, the kit showed a lot of promise but the original concept kit didnt work correctly. As an engineer, I can tell you that many things dont work as fist conceptualized.

I didn't see it get answered -
When is your retune?
Do you have to break in the motor again?

Some times they do work, get made and when it breaks I get stuck fixing it

My kit failed just like Tom's did...
Incredible they are even making that power bcz the FP red I was using only made 420whpbut it's whatever, bigger and better things I guess?

Tom, you getting tuned on pump and E85?

My turbo kit did Lowsy. The tune onnit was ****ty to. But they used a smaller turbo and all my piping. Welded the wastegate shut and made some real power and made it quick. Something like 350lb/ft at 3k.

Sorry, I missed answering this. So...I dont have a tune scheduled as I dont know how quickly I will be able to get the miles on the motor. Phil is going to be in Pittsburgh for a race in about six weeks so possibly then.

Yes, I need to break in the motor as I have new rings and new bearings.

All,

Its about time for an update. As usual, I have been extremely busy with work, house and family stuff so the car has taken a back seat in my life. Fortunately, when I have driven it, it has performed perfectly.

In other news, for the past five or six years, I have gone on a work related road trip in early July and this year is no different. The work site is around two hours away from my house and while I am there, I stay about ten miles (all city driving) from the work site. I have taken my STI on this trip and daily driven it every year with the only notable exception being last year. This years trip starts tomorrow and has been shortened by the July 4th holiday so I will only be putting about 350 miles on the car. I have found that daily driving the car for a week gives me a pretty good idea of anything that needs attention and I am assuming that this week will be no different.

My car is packed, the fuel is topped off and everything is ready to go for a 7:45AM departure tomorrow. Wish me luck!

I made it back form my work trip just fine and the car is doing great. I am now at the 550 mile mark on the motor and it feels good to be over the half way point. Many of those miles have been highway miles but I try pretty hard to keep the speed varied and work in a bit of light boost / engine braking. The car is well tuned to about 10psi / 5000RPM but its really hard to keep it below those marks as it REALLY wants to go! I am VERY VERY excited with how the car feels in terms of its responsiveness and "perkiness" when I get on it. I would say that its pretty much exactly how I had hoped it would be when I sat down with Ryan and Dale from Moore Performance in late 2010 to go over my turbo kit design.

In other news, I have never really been into car shows but since I cant race the car right now, I have decided to give them a shot. I went to the first show on Monday night during my work trip, the second one was our local monthly Pittsburgh "QSL" meet and the third was a July 4th community days event at neighboring town. Outside of the Subaru tuner community, most people are just shocked to see whats under the hood...

All, keep the Moore Performance / McB Autosport guys in your thoughts tonight. Their building and many cars there have been flooded out and I am sure its going to be the start of a very long and stressful period for our friends there. As of 6PM on Wednesday, the video at this link showed a number of the trucks and race trailers at McB's and the nearby area:

Since its been six weeks since my last post I figured I owe the world a quick update. Things are great with the car but my job totally sucks as I have been working six million hours. At least I have good job security! Any way, I had a chance to drive the car to a local car cruse this past weekend, here's a quick pict of the car and Abby:

(note her T-Shirt)

I am pretty concerned that making a rookie mistake with gasoline and super expensive components could go horribly wrong very quickly. As a result, I have read just about every thread on NASIOC related to advanced fuel systems similar to what I plan to install. I have also spent a good deal of time on the phone with my tuner Phil from Element as well as the Aeromotive pre-sales and technical support hot-line. On a quick side note, both Element Tuning and Aeromotive provide excellent technical support and have done a great job providing me with all the info that I have needed to make informed decisions for my car.

The result of about a month of research and several revisions is as follows. If you are experienced in this matter I would appreciate it if you could provide me with any guidance that you feel would be useful. In addition to a critique of my design/plans, I would love to hear about any issues you ran into, including, what didn't work and general advice you could offer. Thanks.

I am trying to figure out how to set up a fuel system so this really helps, just a few questions tho, does the fuel pressure regulator always have to be after the rails? What type of distribution block did you use? Did you mount your surge tank in the trunk?
