The average engine is pretty easy to pull. Being longitudinally mounted makes subarus a bit easily I'd imagine but pulling out your average fwd i4 isn't all that tough.

Cool video btw.

Plus I have my 2012 Forester so any time there's an issue or an upgrade that I didn't finish installing, or even if it rains then I just drive my Forester.
Do you get stopped by the police when you drive it on the street? Since it doesn't have any muffler at all how loud it is when you drive it? I can only imagine it probably is more than 100db

I believe you also commented on my Facebook page, and I responded there, but in case you didn't see it: I have driven a couple thousand street miles since switching to the exhaust dump. No issues so far. It's not really much louder than a fart can exhaust when I'm cruising around.

Any reason why you went for the non avcs version of the kelford 280's? I have the avcs version but yet to dyno.

Because I have a 2002 WRX that does not support AVCS. Also, keeping things as simple as possible for a straight line focused car.

Ah that would make sense, to be honest I doubt I will be able to run much advance on the avcs due to piston/valve contact anyway. Looking forward to the results with your new build, are you still using the 6266?

No, I have a 6766 now.

Upgraded my newer "CARB" compliant gas cans to the higher flowing "old" style.

Advantages:
  • No longer need to use a funnel to fill up my car
  • No longer have to hold down button the entire time it's filling
  • Empties in ~1/2 the time

Interesting accordion hose... Sounds like still a pain. I got a VP style can with a rather long and sturdy hose. I can flip the can vertical and rest the weight of the can on the hose.

NF brings the VP cans to the track. They work very well. I don't like where the vent is though. You can't really turn it completely upside down and have the vent open or else it just leaks out all over.

Only other issue with the VP ones is that they're too tall to fit easily in my trunk without laying them over. These fit perfectly side by side in the spare tire well.

The accordion hose on this one is much stiffer than it looks in pictures. It can bend a little, but it's very solid. Probably more stiff than the VP ones (although I bet it could be crushed more easily).

If I didn't already have these cans I would have just bought the VP ones. They're not cheap, but they're sturdy and work well. Since I already had these cans it was a cheap and easy upgrade.

Probably going to pick up one of those filler necks. Saw one at O'Autovance or wherever and almost did the impulse buy thing.

The cans I have are both this twist and push locking thing that just blows off the end on a hot day and I spend half an hour putting it all back together.

Yeah, all the spring loaded ones tend to break at one point or another. I had one that was completely broken and one that I had put back together a couple times.

This kit works great. Just make sure the inside is clean and dry before drilling the vent hole so that you can make sure to get all of the shavings out of the gas can before using it.

Is there a streen driven record for et or mph? If so is that what you're going for?

I think there have been "street legal" Subaru's in the 8's. I'm not really chasing any kind of records in particular.
