Vband in/out 6266

650-675 is my guess. Not pushing it much harder than before.

I should have Jr and Paul tune it while I'm not there so I don't have an influence. Though I think I would have walked away with 597 instead of 605 if Paul wasn't there that day.

Dialog after my 597hp run:

"1/2 pound more boost! All it needs is half pound"

Vroom

"See 605!! Now you're in the 600 club. 597 isn't 600"

I would try it first, you never know. I think your hood has more room under there than mine does. Also depends on the motor mounts you're using. Those play a part depending on which ones. I think the cusco ones sat super low compared to stock or others.

Hey buddy, Good visit today, it's good to see your new place and I love your garage/ shop! I like the work you're doing but the hood clearance is going to be tough! You may need the tunnel hood and it could help disguise your car with the American muscle at the local tracks!!

You're car is going to be one SICK puppy once she's done next spring! I can't wait for that to come!

I love your closed circuit autocross/ time trial course you have there! We need to do some time trialing out there, the road is perfect for it!

I'm going to work on the Torque Solutions pitch stop mount to see if i can take some of that harshness out. I think the mods i was explaining to you as well as what we came up with today will help control the resonance of the firewall.

I'm glad we were able to get you behind the wheel of the XTI today. It's coming along nicely with the tweaks I've been doing to it. Don't you think?

Yes definitely a good Visit man glad you could swing in for a bit. The Foz is most definitely as smooth and linear as you claimed. 3k+ is like one solid motion nothing jerky about it just consistently being slammed in the seat!

Thanks for the props, its gonna be a while getting where I want to be but it will come eventually.

Thanks man, she pulls pretty hard from 3k+ to almost 8k and launches pretty well too, wouldn't you say?

Yep you're doing it right though and that takes time, I know this! Patience and diligence pays off!

Twin scroll has been ditched

Coming back with a single scroll vband 6266 .84 AR.
In the words of our world traveling friend JR - " It will make power without boosting to a million psi "

I'm okay with that.

KBHH FTW! I don't think you will loose any transient response and you will see quicker spool with this header! It's also very burley construction!!

Soon. Very Soon. I have goodies at home. Was waiting to get something accomplished first haha.

For those that dont know, I bought an outback for something to do while I save money for this car, it had a blown motor, hoping to make a few bucks for my hard work to put into this car. Currently it is for sale.

I talked with Paul last week and it sounds like he was sick the week before the holidays, then P&L was closed for 2 weeks, then last week Paul was sick again, and I barely caught him in the shop. Anyways, he said once he's caught back up I'm on the list to start getting work done to my schtuff. In the mean time, I've been trying to do as many free mods as I can around the car.

Back to your post D, the Hood does clear with the 8mm spacers! Barely, and it still hits the silicone coupler, but it does close. Yesterday in the garage, I was playing with 3MM of spacers, to see if I would still clear various things, and I think by the time I add in the two gaskets (5.5mm total distance between the head and the manifold ) I will get an extra 5mm of clearance on the hood and then give me room to clear AVCS related stuff.
I was supposed to do a test fit on the outback , but I forgot. Oops.

Pictures of Brake MC / Booster Delete / New Lines to follow.

Question for you folks. ... Do you think it would be a bad Idea to run a teflon line from the back of the car up to the front through the cabin? I currently have it running on the bottom side of the car and I'm not sure I like how much of a pain it is down there. Any safety factors to be concerned with in cabin (is this legal for track use?)

Have you thought about doing something like or similar to this to fit the manifold with 16mm phenolic spacers?

Texted you back on that ^^^
Finally an update worth doing. Still a long way off from getting this rig back on the road though.

In the last 2 months to the day, I've been working on three different projects.

1 is obviously this car, get to that in a second. Second, I bought an outback XT with a blown motor and fixed it up to make some money. Unfortunately i didn't get cash, I got another project. I traded the outback for a 2007 impreza with an 04 STi swap and a GT30R Perrin kit, FMIC etc.

The impreza is going to be "hopefully" functional by March 1st. I bought my gasket kit today, and I pick up the motor wednesday night / thursday. This motor is a built motor also, and with the GT30 on E85 it should be a fun little car till i get this going. It will be for sale as soon as I get it running and cleaned up.

Back to this car. ... Finally did some fun stuff to it. I've had all this stuff since early December and it was just sitting in the car because I've had no time to work on it.

Got my brake booster delete plate / wilwood master cylinder installed a while back, finished up the lines and the proportioning valve for it yesterday. I'm pretty proud of the brake line tuck. I wish i would have went with 3AN the whole time, I did after the proportioning valve, the 1/8NPT was getting annoying.





Secondly, I installed the Perrin Catch Can I bought.

Third and finally - Installed the Vacuum block I purchased. No getting harassment from Tyler @ PnL about hoses blowing off since I will be using all positive connections ( AN fittings or the Vibrant one touch connectors) for all connections. I highly recommend those fittings. I've tugged on one with all my might ( which isn't much ) and it didnt do anything but sit there and be happy. The bolt head that is sticking out is a longer one because it goes through the wall and also secures the proportioning valve, I need to find an allen head so that it matches the other.





Overall picture of the engine bay. Everything is dirty, and the block is a junk block with the intake manifold i'm going to use.
Excited to get this impreza going so that I can start putting money into this car again. It is so much more fun to accessorize and build than return to OEM specs ( outback )

Good work bud. Coming along.

You not going to use wipers anymore or is there still enough space for the wiper motors?

As of right now there is still enough space, I do not think I will be driving the car in the rain with the electrical stuff running thru there. But if I go on a journey I might throw them in, it is just a few bolts.

Or I could just drive faster with rain X windows and not worry about it
