Any time Lou!

I did forget to mention my need for the reliability of this setup. When I first contacted Lou, I mentioned that my goals for reliability and daily-drive-with-wife-and-child-ability(must be quiet) would exceed the priority of the goal for 300whp.

With the constraints provided, I was surprised to see the first run hit 307whp even after letting off early.

I should also mention that Lou advocated keeping the setup as simple as possible. I did not make cost a priority as I was prepared to continue saving if the budget needed to be expanded. In addressing reliability, Lou also kept this setup more affordable by minimizing extras.

i would love to see more info on this. this would mean that a tmic would not start cooling effectively on a good portion of auto-x courses. it would also mean i should strongly consider a front mount and scoopless hood from an impreza.
