Any update on the gaskets?

I put the silencer on for a few days, its super quiet. I think it'll be a nice thing to use when driving people long distance. But it definitely affects performance. I didn't feel comfortable wringing out the engine; at high rpms it sounded and felt like the turbo was struggling. It did give a little more pep at low rpms tho. Good for cruising maybe, but not everyday use. At least for me and my commute.

Swapped my fortune auto coilovers for swift springs on the stock struts today. The swift springs are awesome, perfect for daily driving with a little stiffer more controlled feel. The coilovers were good performance wise, but they were noisy and I feel the spring rate were too low, got tired of messing with them.
Swifts are sweet, my Feal 441s use them too. The spring rate feels perfect.

Not yet, going home today so i can use my jack to get it off the ground. I'll be testing the silencer too, probably same results of power loss and quietness

Yeah, the coilovers had the Swifts on the rears. 7k front, 6k Swifts on the rear. Too soft though, really bouncy on uneven roads. Even with the damping turned on the stiffer side. I'm really happy with the swift/stock strut combo.

I'm looking to buy a short shifter for my 11 WRX. Thoughts on the Torque Solution or the Kartboy?

The car performed extremely well, and gave more on 16lbs, before HeatSoak. I asked for a Safe DD Tune. Got 4 new Maps to play with.

I have a hard time believing that you're getting essentially 300 wheel with just a catted turboback and mild tune.
Don't get me wrong I hope its true, just seems high

I think the consensus is that you can't tune out boost creep its more of a physical exhaust design problem than a tuning issue. I haven't seen my boost go past 19 though

In for this... Even my brother-in-law's 07 Sentra SE-R Spec V has better holding/more comfortable seats than my '12 WRX Limited. Where's the bolstering??

I was always under the impression that it can; however, people don't want the repercussion of it...later boost peak. If you lessen the wgdc you can eliminate the creep but peak boost isn't hit until 4k RPMs range. Good with the bad I, always thought. I haven't had a creep issue but I down shift instead of just nailing the pedal in a lower gear.

Its a back-pressure issue.

Most carts fall under a majority grouping that allied you to speculate a gain or loss... All dyno readings are taking with a grain of salt. I can do more with 300whp that has a flat power curve than you can with 330 peak whp that peaks and lets off (not you personally but in general).

yeah nailing the throttle in too high of a gear is a bad idea when you have increased boost it seems.


My car might see a little more boost at sea level(I'm at like 850 ft or so)
