I agree. The 12.5 CR on top of the way Subaru designs and makes their n/a motors, the likelihood of it being very durable beyond low level boost is not favorable.

Also, one cannot compare turbocharging a n/a Honda engine to a n/a Subaru. They are completely different animals.

Yeah. I figured I'd heard that correctly. I was blown away when I first saw that commercial...

I had a ej22 open deck on my wrx that i boosted 21psi for 2 years doing numerous autox and street pulls. Short block was out of a 96 impreza outback, heads were 2.0wrx turbo was a TD06-20g. 360awhp. I thought the rings were bad so i started making a built motor. Turns out the seals on the turbo went. I sold the motor with a rebuilt turbo and it is still going to this day.

I think good tuning had a major part in it.

Back to the topic, I think this is great. I was really bummed that Subaru didn't have immediate plans to make this an FI setup from the factory. I knew it was only a matter of time before someone did it. Although, I didn't expect this anywhere near this soon. Great job on the build. You're doing it right by strarting small. Keep up the great work!

Some of us have been saying this the whole time I'll take an aftermarket turbo over a factory turbo any day. As long as Subaru gave us an engine that can hold up to boost, factory power doesn't mean much to me. I'll probably give it a few years though to make sure there aren't any long term warrantied issues, and decide what I want to do once the market has settled down.

That doesn't look right, isn't it 272 WHP and 209 WTQ?

Either way this is the power that this car needed. I don't know about the rest of you but I really wanted one until I drove it. IMHO, the car from the factory is underpowered and the handling wasn't that much better that justified the lack in power. I thought it would feel better, but it didn't and I don't know why. This is an awesome set up. Would love to see this thing in person.

I felt the same way. However, I feel they could create a lot more power from the N/A engine and simply not need a turbo to make the car much more fun than say, a Miata, which it seems to be competing with. I know it handles well for a stock coupe, but it should be more engine and less commercial. *shrug*

In order to find the limits you must exceed them.
