Glad you are enjoying the car Glenn I was quite pleased with the peak power numbers. This car did hit peak torque a bit later than I like to see with the ATP3076, but I do feel that the headers have quite a bit to do with that. The AMR headers on the car have extremely long runners and I have seen this style of header slow the onset of full boost. However, the car makes quite a bit of power/torque before it hits peak boost/torque. Boost just seems to come on more linearly from low rpms on up rather than sharply all at once. If you look at the torque curve it is almost a diagonal line up rather than a parabola. As such the car feels quite snappy even before full boost hits.

I know I'll be able to get better spool out of it on E85. I do worry about the clutch though. Heck, I've had a couple customers with just stage 2 STi's need clutches within 2 weeks of getting tuned and they weren't making any near the power boxer112's car will make on E85
