I installed the kit on my '09 Legacy. I only have 8k miles with the kit on the car, installed at 28k, and haven't had any issues. I don't daily drive it, but I don't see any reason I couldn't if I had to. The torque is a lot of fun. Still on the stock clutch, no issues there either. I did 1 autocross event this year, and the car did really well. Drove 80 something miles to the event, went around the course 5 times, then drove home. I can get 25-26 mpg on the highway driving moderately, and I get around 21-23 mixed.

Nice did you get the car tuned at EFI?

How much are you in on this project if you don't mind me asking

Yup, EFI Logics tuned. And I'd say around $4200.

How long did the tune take..would you feel comfortable if this was on a daily driver?

Tuning was a little bit of a struggle since there aren't any definitions for my car. I'd say it took probably 2 hours. If you have an ECU definition already it won't take nearly as long. I would feel very comfortable daily driving it.
