Default '05 LGT Sharing thread

Instead of hacking on one-another I thought I would make an LGT sharing thread where we can share things we have done to our LGT's and help other people along with modding their car, WITHOUT COMPETITION. For me, I'm more than happy to hear if someone else built a faster car than me especially if they tell me how they did it. It doesn't mean I will copy them but maybe it will inspire new ideas for me, which in turn will do the same for them, this is how we grow, learn and make new things.

Now, as you can see on the left hand column here I do not in fact own an LGT. But I build them. Current customer project (some details left out for anonymity)

'05 LGT 5EAT
18" wheels (light) with 245/35 T1-S
Lowering springs, struts to come soon.
Catless up-pipe, Rocket Rally HF cat DP, AVO dual exhaust.
Perrin top mount for LGT
Nismo 740CC injectors
Walbro Fuel Pump
Rocket Rally custom tune for above parts.
Waiting for shipment of Deadbolt 18G turbo for LGT.
Upon arrival another rocket rally custom tune.
We will also be sending off the torque converter to pro-torque
for an upgrade.
Will post numbers as soon as we get them (no quarter mile times, just road dyno HP and TQ numbers).

Next project: Black LGT Sedan, MT (waiting for delivery from dealership)
Power mods will start with pipes and rocket reflash.
Not sure on suspension mods but most likely either the STi/Prodrive adjustable coilovers or STi pink lowering springs on the stock shocks for the time being.
18" wheels with 245/35''s or 235/40's...undecided on brand.
Other mods to follow.
Update when car arrives.

Any questions about the mods we did, any difficulties involved or reasoning for the choices we made on this upgrade path please feel free to ask.

ShaggyGT, I'd love to hear about your fuel pump mod as that might save our customers some dough having to buy a walbro.

Cheers.

Blue, thanks for getting this thread moving int he right direction, and thank you for decribing your FMIC in the other thread. One point that was not mentioned in terms of using an FMIC for race day applications (or maybe it was and I missed it), is that you get far less heat soak with an FMIC. So if you can get a larger core, and have it further away from the engine...bonus. Lag is one negative but since oyu used relatively small diameter piping (which is FAR better than using too big piping) you keep the airflow strong. With huge piping it's liking trying to blow air through a massive straw...doesn;t work so good, it's got to match the application.

I want pics tora, sounds hot! I am really interested to see pics of the AVO dual exhaust...

05 LGT Wagon red:

17x7.5 black racing rims bronze
w/copper 2xs summers 225/45/17
added a bit more - camber up front

Cobb Stage 1 accessport

Wish list:
exhaust, DP w/race cat
sways, endlinks, strut tower bars.
Possibly go to 18" rims at some point.

Other than these things I think Ill stay stock with the turbo, IC, etc
maybe go to stage two cobb once the exhaust stuff is in place.
(these things got outta hand with the WRX)

http://www.rocketrally.com/dloads/customers/LGT/

here is the pics of the exhaust. Sorry but without the customers approval I do not want to post pics that give away the "identity" of the car.
The two turbo pics are of the Deadbolt modified LGT VF40. You can see the port job on the exhaust side as well as the different fin pattern on the inlet. There is also a picture of the AVO twin pipe exhaust and the Rocket Rally DP and the Perrin TM intercooler. The G pic was an idea we had while debadging the car. Just wanted to see what it would look like with only a G on it.

No problem tora. The 2.25" piping should flow enough air for 400hp according to my estimates. The the FMIC core should flow enough for 500hp. This is plenty for most legacy owners. Trust me, we took plenty of time measuring and there really isn't any way to fit larger diameter piping in the engine bay without a major rework of how everything is layed out (fuel lines, brake lines, etc). One thing I wanted to do was keep costs down on this kit. It's definately made power for my car, a lot of it, which is all that matters to me. The pressure drop seen for the entire route of the FMIC is roughly 1 psi which isn't too bad. Lag is negligible from what I can tell. The little vf40 will spool up rather quickly. I appreciate all comments and insight into the stuff I and the guys at NFP are doing.

Blue, I'll let you know my impression of the Deadbolt turbo when we get it on as that may be something you'd consider doing when the time comes. Anyways, thanks for the info. Let's keep each other in the loop in case we come up with some nifty ideas.

Shaggy, still love to hear about your fuel pump upgrade.

Sorry, didn't see that.
Walbro 225L/hr can't remember what part number we used but same one as on the WRX but needed some modification. Unfortunately I was away during the install so not sure what was done.

It is my understanding that the BE/BH legacy gas tanks are a bit shallower than the impreza or wrx's, so i would guess it had to deal with that height issue, i am using a supra TT fuel pump like JoeT it is short and fat, supposedly they dont flow as well unless you put an amp to them to prevent voltage drop, hopefully i will be finding out how to make one from sponaugle while i am at pdx, once i know i will share.

I feel like such a ricer.

2000 Legacy GT Limited - White
- Tint (unsure of percentage - came with the car)
- Homemade Clear Corners w/ "hyperwhite" bulbs.
- Other upgraded bulbs: Sylvania Silverstar low beams, Street Glow fogs.
- Custom center console with aftermarket stereo deck, Legacy DIN cubby and switches.
- Custom Sub setup that is a partial rear seat delete.
- Painted interior panels.
- Smiley face grill emblem
- ICELED LED lighting (See, there's the ricer part!)

http://www.the-aken.com/photos/subaru/purdy.jpg







(I apologize for my screwy vinyl job. It worked fine when I lined it up. Gonna have a pro recover it sometime.)

The lights:





The lights can do 2.1 million colors, believe it or not. (And yes, I realize that most people will not like the lights).

Mkay - enough of me ruining this thread.

Just to confirm, what I was in fact looking for was people who have '05 Legacy GT Turbo's and what they had done to them. I am getting numerous customers with these cars and thought it would be cool to share what we are doing to there cars and what other people are doing, what mods work well, or better than other's.

Thanks.

Hey now. Let's not be biased towards the 05's. Some of us had to settle for something less than the almost-STi sticker price.

I'd be happy to share information on anything done to my car, if it helps yah in any way


nyyankees003: Yup, that's basically what I did. I used an alcohol-based solvent to give them all a good cleaning, then a very fine grade sandpaper to try and rough em up slightly so that the paint would stick better. I used a white Krylon Fusion spray paint - the kind made for bonding to plastics. It worked alright - looks great from a distance, not so great up close. I will most likely be having a painter friend of mine touch them all up.
