Default movin over to txic for a while

well made the drive safely, now in eastern texas. man it's an amazing difference what 93 octane real gas and 0 elevation do. car is a whole new beast. even with a good 4-500lbs of suitcases and stuff packed in she was quicker, unloaded it's that feelin when you first got your suby and had the permagrin. feels good to have it back

unfortunately i got an oil leak, seems to be coming from the turbo area, dripping down on the up-pipe, looks like a good time for the turbo install.

adios for a while and have fun in the cold,



oh and Craig, i stole your neighbors radiator cap. i'll mail it back. pm me your address.

That 93 did nothing for you if you didn't retune for it, the difference is in the elevation. I felt the same thing when I moved to Omaha.

My word of advice: I went from 4,200' to 900' and my car was knocking all over even running 93 on a 91 tune. Run a log just to make sure all is well.

^^ Not true, if the barometric comp tables are set up correctly the elevation AND the tune will do everything for a subie, but SOA doesn't set those tables up correctly.


The advice to log and make sure is good stuff, since SOA runs 20% wgdc increase at anything past 13 atm pressure this is very good advice.

i also threw the cobb stg 2 93 vs the az/ca/nv stg 2 91 pisswater tune, forgot to mention i had the a/p. will do some logging when i get the oil leak figured out. i'm on the fence about throwing the 20gxt on with no wastegate hooked up and limping it for a while (since i think the turbo has to come off anyway to get to the oil return line that i'm 90%positive is the culprit.), or just remove and replace the vf39 and enjoy the added power of sea level before getting used to it and upgrading to fuel the addiction


on a separate note i pull a harder vacuum now at sea level, blow off valve opens easier now, wasn't expecting that.

yeah it might just be the clamps that hold the hose to the block and turbo, they are a huge pain in the ass to get to, but if you take the DP off you can crawl under and squeeze your hand in there and just feel if they are on or not instead of taking the whole turbo off....just a thought may or may not be able to fix the issue you are having. worth a shot if you don't want to take the turbo off yet.

I was 2psi over target after moving to Omaha. One thing I noticed too is that with the ignition on and car off in Utah my boost gauge would be slightly under 0, now in Omaha it sits right on the 0psi mark so it moved up a tiny bit.

Not sure if that actually means anything but that was my observation.

baro pressure in ut vs tx was 12psi vs 14.4 which is 1atm. so it all makes sense. leak seems to have subsided a bit, going to keep looking at it but planning to just do the turbo swap soon. got to find a local place to get the ewg welded on since lance was impossible to get a hold of.
