Default 3/16 mod

I was wondering if the 3/16 mod that works so well on the WRX will also work on the FORESTER? Has anyone tried it yet?

Go back to your own forum! Don't you have someone else to harass?
Besides, I was just trying to give the man some answers without the usual "Geez, do a search" BS that everyone spouts around here.

looney,
I'm not the one to answer that question. I've done the mod and it feels faster but it could just be me.

edit: Can't remember if it's 1/8" or 3/16" on mine.

The point is to get a restrictor with an ID of 1/8 inch, right? Don't get a restrictor made for 1/8 tubing, as the ID will be too small. The ID of the stock XT restrictor is 1/16th inch.

What is recc. is the restrictor (coupling) for a 3/16 OD tube, and that one will most likely have a 1/8 ED. This is one I have, but have not tried it yet. I am going to wait until I take it to the track to see if it "really" makes a difference. Has anybody had one on long-term? I was wondering because I am curious what they are seeing at max boost with the restrictor mod, and if the computer compensates by retarding the timing. So... 1. Has anyone used on long-term? 2. Anybody verify the performance in the 1/4 mile?
