In retrospect itís more headache than itís worth unless if youíre willing to sacrifice AC lol you have much better manifold options not to mention bigger throttle body fitment with a standard set up

I'd say it looks cool as hell and opens up a LOT of space in the rear of the bay for relocated reservoirs, etc. The space thing is the big one from my perspective.
There's possibly a small improvement in throttle response and/or spool time, but I wouldn't count on anything significant. I would expect barely noticeable gains performance wise, but I could be way off, and as Homemade WRX said it depends on the previous setup as well. A well designed standard rotation setup will outperform a crappy rotated setup.

I got a problem with the car breaking up above 30psi it drives smoothly out of boost and below 30psi. The NGK 2309 spark plugs/ OEM coil packs are all new and gapped appropriately to 0.024Ē. Battery 2 years old. The -10AN fragola fuel filter is new, ID2000cc injectors are new and refreshed, Walbro fuel pumps are all new, air fuel and fuel pressure are all good, no knock. I think the spark is getting too weak for high boost pressures. I may need to change out my 14 year old alternator and get a grounding kit. I will also change out my 14 year old crank sensor

How the car currently sits. At least Subaru parts are cheap in my effort to keep my aging car alive (175,000 miles). It costs $4000 to replace AC on an R8 for instance

That sounds like spark blow out. I had that issue with the hta86 running the older wrx black coil packs. Diagnosed it by installing a friends sti grey coil packs and the issue went away.

The grey coils were spendy and the time so I kept my blacks and installed a ken bell boost a spark and tightened my spark plug gap down to 0.022 or 0.021 (canít recall it was back in 2010). Never had another problem.

Did the alternator fix the issue?

Nope alternator, new coil packs, grounding kit did not fixed the hesitation issue

Turns out it is likely due to cracks in my 14 year old IAG rotated kit uppipe

it will be replaced

Hooray for figuring out what it is - Boooo for an up-pipe leak.

Make sure to get some ceramic coating or a blanket on that new MF

Can be reversed without sacrificing AC. The better mani's are available in reverse layout, with any throttle body size you want. Unless over 600-650whp stock throttle body size is fine anyway, coming from both my tuner and engine builder.

Shorter and cleaner piping runs > stock config.

Anything can be done, just depends on how much work you want to do.

Car is all fixed! Turns out all my boost issues/stuttering are due to my 14 old Grimmspeed EBCS! Car is back hitting 40psi smoothly

Only 40 psi?!?!

We need you to turn it up to 50 and report back ASAP. You know, for science or something.
