Haha thanks, I checked the washer reservoir motor a couple weeks back (wagons have separate motors for the front and rear windows) and it was turning on, so I knew that wasn't the problem. And today I decided to try tracing the hose backwards from the nozzle. Luckily I didn't have to tear apart too much before I found the problem.

Cool

Demand away.




Picked up the whip tonight. Nick approached me as I walked in the door looking like he had just shotgunned 5 Red Bulls. In fact, he had just gotten back from a final test drive. "Man, that thing rips!"

Let's just say, I concur.

Too bad the roads are a mess right now. If you hear a shrieking, howling motor tonight that sounds nothing like a Subaru….it wasn't me.

Perrin rear differential "lock down kit". The STI feels solid in the deep and strong in the dry. Thanks for your help northpolerex.

Come show me how it's done.


This is a stock turbo, folks, VF37 twin scroll on a used 30K miles JDM motor, running meth injection, 650cc injectors. HP numbers are very, very good against national builds to this spec... among the very best actually. The waste gate actuator is weak on the stock unit and torque could be improved with expensive aftermarket parts. As it is, I am spinning in 4th and 5th gears with our current road conditions. My intention was to build a drivable, quick spooling car that can be driven ultra fast, built to last, not to build a dyno-queen with huge numbers making the car dangerous, unreliable and uncontrollable. I've yet to see anyone locally drive a 450WHP car to its limit. With 300HP/260TQ, I've effectively doubled my wheel horsepower from where it was on my final stage TRBOXR. I won 6 championships locally (Rallyx, Ice and Auto-X) in the last 4 years with that car. What do you think is going to happen now? Like Eric Clapton said in the theme song to the Color of Money, "Its in the way that you use it."

All you people out there taking shots at my "low" numbers with your "is that a mustang dyno? (yeah, i saw it before it was erased), your torque is low!, is that a winter tune?" comments…WTF? I post up and share info and get ridiculed and bashed for it? Good grief.

This engine was only one facet of the total improvements. My car has been improved in all areas, power, handling, etc, exponentially. If you show to events and beat me, so be it. My last car evolved slowly over a decade. This one will evolve too, this is merely the first stage. I did this build on a limited budget because I am in school presently with another 7 months to go out of 27 months total out of work. It was a very expensive build. Try to top it under those circumstances.

I've built something unique, with people I call friends and am proud of the end result. I guess time will tell if it measures up to the hater's scrutiny. Whatever, I'm going to enjoy my car.

ps. this was written quickly, I will go into more detail in a separate new build thread. off to clinic. have a great day folks. I will!

Refering to my FB post, Mike, I never meant it as a "bash" just merely curious as to why the torque curve was lower. Historically, the EJ series motor usually puts out more torque than horsepower, which is why curiosity was piqued.
I love your build, you have accomplished everything that I wanted to have done on my GD.

It's a 2.0 torque curve with a twin scroll lol. And I know it's a stock EJ207 thing just checkin if e kept it or not my plan is to go twin scroll. But I need suspension first before more power

I got nothing but love for you Nomad. I think the power level to the wheels that you have is going to make for a fast and fun car.

It's all good Kyle. I don't hold grudges. This medium is an imperfect communication tool. A lot can get lost in such well meaning posts.

Until you've been through the costs, both financial and energy resources., the delays and pitfalls of such a build...you just can't fathom the new found pride you have in something completely customized to your specs. Something ...totally unique, and all your own.


A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle ... nor has anything taken away from it nor is debased by sharing its light with another.

Gonna let my light shine. I already know this build has inspired others locally & internationally. Will let the car's performance and my driving abilities speak for themselves. See y'all at the track.

Btw. Thanks Dom. Right back at ya man. You scored a ride when you're in the area.

I don't think people understand the vf-37 is a twin scroll but its still a small turbo. The numbers you are making is right on par in my opinion. This turbo "I think off top of my head" used the same compressor housing as the vf-34. The hot side is higher flowing and opens up top end. The most I ever saw one do on a dyno posted was 400whp and that was on race gas and a "this won't last for long" tune.

I love these setups, the one we tuned a few months ago was fantastic and the high end of the power is not comparable to any stock USDM wrx or sti. Guys this setup he has is one you have to drive to understand what its like.

New SMY cluster and gauges installed. Thanks Seascooby - I know how much you hate Dorothy's dashbits.



Up next: Meth, seat swap and new bumper.

Then Underground and dyno. Maybe I'll hit 305hp!

Estimation is kin to assumption...and we all know what assumption is...

I can throw my estimation in the pot as well and have it based on my slips from the track but really the only way to be speaking of numbers is from a dyno sheet, from either a virtual(if set up correctly) or a real dyno(same rule applies)
