Mod it so it can beat an SRT-4 if you're going to void your warranty. Then take it to the track and beat the SRT-4 with a video. Don't forget the "You just got beat by a wagon" license plate holder.

The problem comes after 60mph when your all-wheel advantage turns to "more mass to spin up" and the weight differences and Cd differences start to show up...

Make sure when you install the AEM intake, make sure you don't use the second half of it, you lose alot of power with it.

Take a 6" piece 3" exhaust tubing and attach that to the end of the intake, just put that through the fender and attach the filter to the end of that. Other wise you're making the turbo work harder for air.

A little off-topic, but what do dealers normally do when they void your warranty after noticing your mods? Do they tell you up front that they noticed what you did and that your warranty is void? Or do they take pictures and make a record of it in their systems should something go wrong with your car, so they can bust you for it later?

Don't forget that Cobb's Access Tuner will be available next month. Probably the single most potent performance upgrade you can make for the money/ease of installation.

Hopefully but I would be looking at June most likely. They are using whats basically a prototype for our one lap of america forester in a couple weeks. Cobb is very very busy, downpipes on back order, access ports for wrx's slowly being released, sway bars on back order. But as I always say its worth the wait.

Hey, those SRT-4s are 2WD now with an LSD up front. Unlike the front peg-leg action of the XT!

I wound up not taking too many pictures. I had some slight fitment isues with the uppipe. After about three hours I noticed that the flex portion has stretched about a 1/4 in. So over to the press I go and smash that beeotch back into place! After that it went smoothly. The Bosal downpipe is absolutely beautiful. Twin dump setup from the wastegate all the way to the midpipe. Th AEM bolted right in as well. Funny,the non-factory stuf fit better than the factory bits! . With the intake installed I lost power down low (expected) but gained exponentially on the top end. The Uppipe re-gained the bottom end and then some. The downpipe increased power throughout the powerband. Next up is a Bosal/SPT catback. After that will be a STi I/C and a reflash. Then I'm done with power. Need suspension and brakes.



BTW I have decided that with the exception of the AEM and the D/P that all mods will either be DIY or anything that cen be dealer purchased. It is going to be a showcase of what we (my dealership) can do. And as soon as it comes in I will be building up my demo car................................ a Prodrive tuned Legacy GT

Just an FYI for the EGT probe you will need to put a 2.2 kohm resistor in the plug.

Did you find hangers long enough to fit or are you welding?

I "think" the hangers will be long enough. If not I break out the TIG welder

Either way you'll be happy. Nice sound(catted at least) and easy on the wallet. Are you running stock midpipe or a test pipe? I've been looking at the Stromung mid to Bosal DP.

The pics that turned out








The cross over pipe looks to be bit smaller in diametre than the WRX piece. I may try swapping that out and seeing if there are any gains to be had..........

Are you leaving the heat shield that covers the turbo off?

Nope,

All the shielding went back on. Had to modify the turbo shield a bit. They were not made to be twin dump!

Basically I drilled the welds, Split the upper and lower turbo shield. Then cut the upper shield straight across the top of where the welds had been. After that it did not look quite right so I pulled out the trusty die grinder, hammer and anvil. Gave it a nice smooth taper at the bottom, matches the taper around the turbo outlet pipe flawlessly.
