So you work at greens Creek or some other mine?

My newest update on the tune im at 23psi tapering to 21 toward redline. Feeling pretty strong but the afr needs to come uo slightly and smoothed and timing needs to be smoothed out a bit more. A few more revisions and I should be done. Then I can stop looking like an idiot while im driving around logging. Im sure ive aggrivated a few people.

Ive been using 2nd gear as my test gear even though 3rd is the best for precision on the tune. I start from a dead stop in 2nd to load it down hard and pull to redline. That way I can do it just about anywhere from a red light on egan. I hit 78-80 or so at Red Line in 2nd. 3rd tops at 120 something so its not feasible to be doing that around here.

Im a vessel inspector. In fact I just checked out the new sewage system on the admiralty wind. I've got a full inspection of the vessel coming up soon as well. Is that the boat you take over there to work?

Yep, thats the boat.

I don't either except for the logging which is pretty momentary. Hopefully ill finish without any unwanted interactions. I even keep my exhaust insert in to try and keep quiet even though it hurts my spool slightly. Trying to remain as innocuous as possible.

Electrician? I've done a fair bit of that myself. My dad is an industrial electrical contractor that owns his own Business. He builds and maintains power stations, does the testing side as well. Does emergency work and plant outages etc.. I grew up around that stuff and then worked for him for a while constructing power stations and add ons for them for a while.

How much power do you guys use out there to sustain day to day ops?

Before I moved here I investigated the power supply to Juneau and found that the Lake dorthee hydro project was Largely funded by you guys and you are the main consumer of the power. Interesting stuff. Snettisham and taku hydros are also tied in.

That's a hefty sum for one place. I'm sure since you guys aren't essential that would be the case. Especially in the winter. Seems like the snettisham power plant pulls most of the weight at 78Mw and dorthee adds 14Mw. They built dorthee to help out in the winter months. You guys use over half dorthees contribution under normal circumstances.

Anyway, i suppose that's enough of the electric talk for a subaru forum.

That's interesting.

I tasked to the guy im tuning with today. He said since I've got a built motor were going to 24psi on the 20g. It's going to be pretty quick for a Forrester lol. To bad we don't have a track here.

Juneau needs a lot. Part of the reason I'm leaving again is lack of decent priced housing. No support for those of us who work on our cars. And I work underground so I want more sun on my days off. That and I'm tired of every pos car revving at me or launching from stop lights by me. lol.

I started pricing my fuel upgrades for my next step. Dw65c fuel pump and id1000 injectors again.

Lol, that's hilarious. My Forrester is so innocuous no one pays much attention to it here. In Houston I had a nice morning race at least once a week with jerks who though I must have been some twerp who put am exhaust on my car to be showy.

It ended badly every time for them. Took out an srt10 ram (the viper v10 one) si civics loved to play at stop lights and never lasted to 2nd gear cause I was so far off ahead. Had some rt chargers lose a few rounds, new v6 eclipses were a joke and plenty others.

Usually each case was someone who thought he could easily put the smack down on the little wannabe subaru that shamed them when they tried anything.

The dw65 is a nice little piece. I used bosch injectors cause I didn't need the adapter plug and the injector body on id injectors is actually a bosch anyway.

If you're still here when you swap the parts I don't mind lending a hand if you need.

Install on them are not bad at all, really easy for injectors compared to the wrx. fuel pump isn't too bad as well. how do you like the bosch injectors?

They're perfect. Never had an issue. Theyre the same as ID but the plug is the right one for a subaru. They idle great unlike dw which have been known to idle rough. The dw ones are just stock Subaru injectors modified to flow more and thats why they have idle issues. Bosch and ID are factory made to flow correctly.

It was a pain to get those injector gaurds off though. Took 2 hours to remove them. I put the injectors on 3 days later and it only took 30 minutes from that point.

At 54 lb/min I would think 400 would be toward the lower end. It should flow enough for s bit more I would think.

91 octane and about 5k elevation will kill that hope lol. If I get it here not sure where it would end up with the fuel we have unless I went meth to help out

I think youll be ok making that much here. Elevation would be a killer though. I believe the fuel here might be better than you think. Im running a 45lb/min turbo and getting close to that 400 mark here. I dont expect to make it but the turbo youre lookong at is significantly larger. A good tuner should get at least 400 here for you.

Yeah it should be a fun turbo when it's done and it's made by mitsubishi so hopefully it is as reliable as oem. Should I have them port it before shipping it?
