Nice setup! Can we see some engine bay pictures?

seems a bit laggy for a 60lb/min turbo if its not hitting peak by ~5000rpms, even with the 10.5cm hotside.
Are you planning on replacing the AMR T60r? does it have the SLR wheel? Do you have a dyno readout with boost plotted? I want to see how the turbo spools up

Keep up the good work! Awesome car!

yeah i can post a couple engine bay pics, but they aren't the prettiest. needs some work re-routing the hoses and replacing clamps and such.

i dont plan on replacing the t60 no, also the t60 isnt rotated, lol but i wont replace it because this was just a conservative tune on pump gas. the IDC's of the 850cc was maxed out, and the maf had to be replaced from a 70mm to a 73mm then to an 83mm, voltage was maxed out as well. with some corn and some ID1300cc injectors i should have much better spool and substantial gains. plus with corn i can bump up the boost a litttle, because of the lower knock point. i can safely run 26psi with e85 on my build.

sick set-up dude! nice #'s on a Mustang dyno. the 265awhp #, was that the stock STi engine?

Also, your injectors are holding you back. I would opt for 1000cc's and swap that turbo out for an FP black and make some serious #'s. GL with your set-up man, i bet the car RIPS.

Your going to want larger injectors than 1300s if you plan on running corn with that turbo. Prolly have to do some serious fuel system upgrades as well.

I'm glad your liking the set up, but I still have yet to see an AMR turbo that's worth a damn.

^THIS. Didn't want to be a douche but this guy is 100% correct. Most of you Subaru guys waste your time with INCREDIBLY over-priced and inefficient turbos. If you really want to step your game up, get a BW/Bullseye turbo, clock it to make it fit a rotated set-up and then smoke everyone else because those things make INSANE power.

I believe so yeah. I know the IDC was maxed out as well as the MAF and intake. they had to upgrade to an 83mm.

Honestly, i like the AMR t60, whats so wrong with it? I made REALLY good numbers, at only 22psi. and it was very conservative. my injectors duty cycle that was maxed out is what held me back, the turbo is capable of 30psi all day, especially with the 10.5cm hotside, PnP and its oil and water cooled, i would want to rotate the t60, then all I need is a bigger fuel system is all. just sayin, everyone is held to their opinion, but i personally love my AMR

I'm not saying it's a junk turbo, I know it's a quality product. However, I just don't think it's the turbo to go with for optimum power. Especially considering the price. I see these AMR turbos, FPs, APS set-ups, and TONS of crap Blouch turbos but no one bothers going REALLY big and getting an S362 or bigger. Billet wheel technology is amazing. And now we even have the Batmowheel!

Yep, i agree fully. But remember this car is also my DD haha so i think im good where im at for now. but in the near future, i want to get her on some corn and ID2000cc, and up the boost! im hoping for whp numbers to be in the 525-550 range and wtq numbers in the 560-580 range

So I pretty much have all the same mods plus a few more. as you i put down 517whp but with with a 20G turbo on E85 going from 800 to 1200 cc injectors made all the difference.

Also a difference in my MPG.. I such bad mileage i cant even say

nice power!! I want to get tuned to e85, its only $2.75 a gal here, and with corn you need to bump the fuel up, so 1300cc or 2000cc injectors would do the trick, plus i can bump the boost up tuned @ e85 you can run higher boost levels without going near the knock point because of how much cooler it runs. i hope my mileage wont be too bad.

old thread bump, car spun a bearing back in 2012. long story short the previous owner of the car sold it to me with the wrong Fu**ing dipstick. He had a WRX dipstick in the car, it had a STi shortblock, JDM v7 heads, sti oil pan, aftermarket oil pickup (unknown brand).

So basically with the WRX dipstick on a hybrid motor doesnt add up. the WRX dipstick is 3/4'' longer than the STi dipstick. So therefore was reading higher than what it actually was reading. So it starved the engine and cost me 7k. the PO is on here but i wont say his name (lucky bastard)

car got rebuilt @ PAS. (performance auto solutions) Fresh short block, but downgraded the h-beam rods to stock sti rods, downgraded the ACL bearings to stock, and now i have a stock bore shortblock with drop in manley pistons.

Ill update the mods list in post #1, and post a pic of the new dyno graph on the low boost break in tune for the fresh motor. new motor setup has 2200~ miles

repost the pics. I'm curious..

That totally sucks about the dipstick. But owning a overly modified car I certainly need to double check what I to not to make that same mistake.

I started a binder with a log of mods & receipts copies of alignments and manuals. It was the only way to keep track if i was not messing up with something as simple as a dipstick

Ill repost, and i found the new dyno graph with the break in tune on low boost.

it does suck unfortunately, and i always check the oil when i first bought it, and i noticed that it didnt burn a lot, maybe 1/2 a quart in an oil change interval. so i didnt think anything of it, till one day explosion. I have a huge folder of everything purchased for this car, from the smallest of mods to the whole new block.

Before

After

theres the motor bay when i picked it up from PAS with the new setup. doesnt look like they did much, but the AOS lines, and the EVAP lines were all re routes, and look much cleaner under the IM. the huge fuel lines for the rails arent everywhere anymore. Amp power wire needs to be tucked as well
