Looks like a fun setup. I would like it much better with the CF paint matched.

And I can't believe you left the air pump in place!

That has got to be the most inefficient charge pipe routing I have seen on a subaru... You're probably losing 20-30whp alone from your piping.

It would've been much better to run clockwise rotation, and go IC->TB from the passenger side.

Every 90 degree bend you have to make hurts your flow quite a bit, and that design has like 4 of em

Other than that, nice results - interested to see the curve.

I'd much rather run this setup than the clockwise routing that puts the cold side pipe directly over the turbo. This adds two 90 deg bends but it prevents the air from going right over the (hot) turbo immediately before going into the intake manifold. The clockwise setup might perform well on the dyno for single pulls, but I wouldn't want it on the street or road course. I am blown away when I see people still running the clockwise piping.

This is why I like a rotated set up better, you have the chance to run the piping under the intake manifold and still have room for the intake.

Mike @ GST motorsports, definitely knows what he's doing!
I'm sure there's a reason for everything he did on the build.

Paint matched for plasma blue?
Can any body shop do that?

Haven't plugged in a computer to check the standalone data for the duty cycle as of yet.

I no longer use a COBB access port!

Interesting setup. Definately curious to see the charts for this.

What's the reason for running the Hydra as apposed to Cobb Speed Density software with the stock ECU?

Thanks
