Torque Chip richens fuel. Since 2.5L seem to run lean in the upper end, esp when used in conjunction with an aftermarket intake, it's a good choice. (esp since the car still looks and sounds stock)

It's priced similar to the lightened pulleys since it seems to make as much of a performance difference.

Sean,
I ran one event with it and it didn't feel quicker, maybe because it was so quiet. So, I stuck the Rallispec intake back on. I plan on running Street Mod next year anyway.

How's you car doing? Did you ever get the (Shudder... Just kidding!) semi-dog box and did you ever get those wheels you were lusting over at the meet at Red Rocks?

I'd consider your chip but my car runs way rich as it is.

Since it removes the long term fuel trim and allows the ECU to learn faster, it only enrichens if you need it. It also advances timing. The powerchip is similar and improves power approx 4hp across the board on the dyno... I expect this would do the same as proECM and the Manufacturer claims max 12 ftlb gain and about 4hp from the dyno plots I have seen previously.

well since nobody wants my chip.

mark-
the car is running great. i just got my VF22 upgrade and catless dual tube to 3" all the way back. scary fast. i'm running 20lbs of boost with my new nismo 555cc injectors. apx 300 crank hp on the stock tranny! i think i'll just buy a couple of those until something comes out to my liking. now all i have to do is learn how to drive out at second creek.

300 is too low of an estimate if you got that kinda boost

I got 233 wheel/315 crank at 10 psi on my 2.5L with vf22 & 2.5" two cat downpipe. I run 15 psi now with my 3" twin dump catless & venture to guess I am closer to 360-375 now (VF22 maxed out).

What block are you running?

Larry-

i'm running the 2.2 turbo block, remember. it's the Team Ramirez stage 3 setup. i think he just came out with a stage 5. i'm still not convienced its faster than my stage 3 though. i just don't think a link and dog make that big of a difference.

Sean, you and Mark definitely should show up to this. I'm envisioning an old school vs. new school throw down at the Second Creek event in late October. One rule should be street rubber for all (no r-compounds, only 140 treadware and up). Needless to say, my money is on the old school...

your going to have to define old school and new school. as far as racing goes if i had my car and mark had a stock 98 he would probably still beat me at the track. just because i have a fast car doesn't mean i can drive (contrary to popular i-club belief). i think old school vs. new school means 98-01 RS vs. WRX. we are on the same team here right guys? RS-(t)s unite! i'm totally down for a second creek run in late oct. i warn you it could get ugly. here is a quote from a driving instructor as he watches me e-brake a corner for kicks, "you kids and your f***'in subarus! you come out here and think this is a rally course. you're not suppossed to 4 wheel drift the corners."

FastRS - You're right, the Link and dogbox didn't make any difference at all. I noticed the biggest improvement in horsepower when I got my leather seats; it took 2 seconds off my quarter mile! Also, by the far the biggest difference between my Stage 5 and your stage 3, is probably the driver.

Tangmere - count me in. My car is finally done, and its time to have fun with it.

Sean,
Yes, we're on the same page, us vs. the 02's. This isn't meant to start a war, just some friendly ribbing.

Sliding is a hoot but you want to be sliding going in, not coming out. I'll get with Rupert and we'll get this track day going.

I'm down for a run at second creek. Never driven an actual road course so it should be fun.
