I'll preface by noting I could really care less about the price point argument or whether or not you bought his kit or went DIY...

1:If Subaru already used this port for coolant flow (albeit on an older generation of engine) why are we worried about whether or not this idea is viable? The coolant flow path is virtually the same as (I would argue slightly better) than on a factory twin turbo set up. Subaru has already done the R&D...

2: Dom has proven that there is a hot spot in the head right behind the plug, I know we have to somewhat take his word for this and some don't like that but he does explain his theories and methods and I would think most people can easily come to the same conclusions he has.

3:I really like the idea of using an IR camera but mounting a high quality IR camera in such a way to get a clean picture of the top, bottom and back of the cyl. head would be extremely difficult. You would need to test in the real world, with the hood shut on a track or strip to get meaningful results. The intake and exhaust manifolds would block a clean shot and there will be far to much thermal "noise" to get a clean picture of what is going on. The next best thing would be a combination of observation, theory, EGT and coolant temp readings...which Dom has publicly provided.

How about all of the people wanting more detailed information get together and pay someone to get it for you, oh wait...
This right here. I'm going to venture a guess that nobody in here is a professional engine builder or tuner that specializes in Subaru's. Not only has this been Dom's day job for over a decade but he is extremely well respected by regular Joe-blow enthusiasts and other highly regarded professionals in the performance Subaru community. He has literally thousands of dyno pulls under his belt and has torn apart many many EJ engines just for diagnostic and exploratory reasons. That some would blatantly question his methods and conclusions just because he hasn't spelled it all out in crayon is somewhat ignorant. I have gotten to interact with Dom on a few occasions and while some would call him a little abrasive, he was always willing to answer questions and can back his answers up with actual data and personal experience. I bet if you contacted him and told him you were interested in his kit (weren't a dick about it) and asked him about his methods and results, there's a good possibility he'd flat out tell you. I think the fact that he gave up on this thread long ago just goes to show how disrespectful and ignorant some are...

Finally, I don't have a problem with skepticism but this thread has turned into the automotive equivalent of anti-vaxing. Just because the guy has a right to his intellectual property and methods but has decided to not share every painstaking detail with us doesn't mean he's wrong or that we should assume he doesn't know what he's talking about. I would argue that between his reputation and the information he's provided in his videos he has more than proved his point. Yea he's requiring us to use our brains, look at data and make some conclusions but I don't blame the guy for not wanting to holding everyone's hand.

Good stuff... . I wanted to type it, but, I didn't see the reason to type it for unstable people who appear to be on and off their meds. The sensible people already understand this so catering to the loons is not only wasting energy but also a complete waste of time.

It's obvious how each person feels, and, the future readers will quickly make their decision one way or another.

I respect what Dom did, and what he didn't do with the budget and time resources he had.

The fact that nowadays many reputable shops started offering this kit to their paying customers tells me that these shops must have also done some kind of background checking.

On the other hand, I work in a highly regulated industry. Anything that goes for approval must be independently verified via Second Scientist Review and Quality approval processes.

Since we have here only the initial vendor approval, i.e. individuals and business (es) that directly benefit from selling and installing the kit, it might be beneficial to have independent verification of the cooling kit benefits.

Perhaps, instead of throwing all kind of silly mems and emojis we can use the energy to conduct independent verification.

WHO HAS ACCESS to the right equipment?


Everybody else keep it constructive. You can offer technical suggestions and/or MONEY to sponsor an independent study.

Now this. I agree with this. I never did question the effectiveness of Dom's kit. It brought new information to my plate. Does the ID make a different? Yes. Is it so important that motor failure is imminent if you don't use his ID? Doubtful. Price point was my issue. "Pay to play." If I don't want to play, I don't pay. Plain and simple. I can pick and choose what I pay for. It's my money. I've voiced my opinions and perspectives. Do I care if anyone agrees/disagrees? Not in the least.

I'll admit my part in unproductive retorts. Kinda hard to argue as that's exactly what I was doing. Am I an idiot for doing so? Probably. Don't care. I've been called worse and still couldn't care any less. Rubber vs glue. Sticks and stones and all. I've got bigger crap to flush than to worry about the smear stains left behind. Don't dish it out if you can't take it. You get what you give. Etc.

Moving on.

No hard feelings on my end. For this place, imo, everyone was pretty civil despite the disagreements.

I'm starting to see a pattern here. Same guy who derails thread with what turns out to be complete guessing and a pile of WRONG is once again derailing thread with jacka** comments.

Who cares if he posts it 30 times. You're a tool.

You're entitled to an opinion.

So how many people in this thread have thanked you? Other than teasing and mocking everyone with a picture of you measuring the ID and hiding the number, making fun of someone who used adobe to almost nail the diameter of doms kit from a generic internet picture, and then discouraging members to run their own tests to see if this kit really does what it says it does what exactly have you contributed to this thread?

He's a fricking tool. Poor guy needs more people to come in and give more compliments or he's going to take it out on someone.

No one is discouraging people doing their own research, but you are discouraging them from heeding Dom's research... How's about YOU do some actual field testing with legitimate equipment and get back when you have something tangible. What a fragile mind, are you really that butthurt a guy came in and reiterated his appreciation for Dom's effort? (Rhetorical question)

Noone thanked me, because I didn't help anyone.

Plenty agreed with me though, on a lot of things I said. One of them being.... Your an ass. But, still, no hard feelings.

As far as me being a accused of wanting something for free by 2slofouru ... that's laughable, at best. Simple fact is the data side of the R&D came up short and leaves several questions on the table. No one is asking for anything free. If there are truly benefits to this, let's see it all and let's use all the available technology to get those answers.

There doesn't need to be the friction and name-calling from anyone here and I'm a bit surprised that some of the questions have been taken so personal by a few of you.

If you are happy with the EGT results, that's perfectly fine! Buy with confidence. In the mean time, let those who desire more go out an seek it.

I rest my case. This guy admits he hasn’t contributed a single thing to this thread other than name calling a complete stranger .

Bottom line is RedRexMeister is the ORIGINAL creator of this thread. After 6 months , almost 300 replies , almost 26,000 thread views, he gathered all the information presented by all sides of the argument, analyzed the data collected, and made an educated decision to go the DIY route with the parts i provided in a previous post.

So OP himself was so swayed by the facts presented by rational respectful educated people that he saw thru the trolling and got the OEM plug with $15 restrictor

You and 2slo can start a group therapy support group and counsel each other and show everyone else on the doll where foo touched you in the feels. GET OVER IT.

Bottom line is Rex is the ORIGINAL creator of this thread. After 6 months , almost 300 replies , almost 26,000 thread views, he gathered all the information presented by all sides of the argument, analyzed the data collected, and made an educated decision to purchase a DIY kit from me.

He didn’t just pull out his credit card and say “I’m a sheep. I can’t think for myself. This dude selling this thing says I need this. All these dudes on the internet who can’t think for themselves are buying it and also saying I need it” and then proceeds to pay $100 for $15 worth of parts.

So OP himself was so swayed by the facts presented by rational respectful educated people instead of the opinions of childish insulting sheep that he came to me for a kit. That’s the greatest accomplishment of this entire thread.

Email the Subaru company I linked for the oem coolant fitting and ask them how many have sold since I posted. When I ordered my 6 , they still showed 11 in stock the next day. Within 48 hours those 11 sold and I had people pming me asking for fittings saying they ordered them the night before but woke up to an email saying they were out of stock. Then, not even 12 hours later I got follow up pms saying they received a new email saying more are back in stock and their orders can be fulfilled.

I don’t care about you and 2slo. You two care way too much about me. The only thing that matters to me is making a change. Mission accomplished
Funny -if you don't care about us, then why have you've typed more about one of us than both of us have typed about you combined.

And you keep saying you're helping but, you were only quick to talk **** and, shell out parts you thought would do the same thing as the original kit without any regard for actual real world results or in other words - other people and their engines. For all any of us know you contributed to hurting others with your assumptions and parts kits that turned out to be completely wrong.

People here are concerned that Dom's kit has inadequate testing, you're egging them on and at the same time telling them 'here use my kit' even though you've not verified anything about it and how it functions.

I mean what the hell is really going on here? And I'm the dick? 2slo is a dick? You seriously must be off your meds and on another planet my friend.

Your attitude has sucked since the moment you stepped in this thread. We've already pointed this out to you. Several of us, not just 2slo and myself.

Get a grip man. This entire thread went sideways the moment you stepped in.

I would suggest that anyone serious about further testing start a new thread.

So in your world, someone posting an OEM part number that 20+ members on here purchased within two weeks, is "making a thread go sideways" and "not helping" but "just talking *"? But posting mockery pictures hiding measurements, talking about a video door bell home security systems like its comparable to a 3 piece automotive part, and throwing around insults between what should be grown men, is a healthy and educational contribution to the topic of this thread.

Are you really this delusional or you just bored now and yanking my chain?

***I"M the one who brought up the fact this mod needs to be tested because I DOUBT its doing what it says its supposed to be doing. I made a post about it a page back how the coolant system already favors the LH side and how this mod diverts coolant away from the radiator preventing it from being cooled but instead diluting it back into the mix still hot. Maybe you missed that one with all the popcorn and mockery of members in this thread. Now you flip sides and act like you want to help them tickle their curiosity in finding out for themselves what the kit does on their car.

and this is NOT my kit. I made ONLY 6. you can poll the audience because most of them are actively posting here. This is OUR kit. idea started with charlie, mrsaturn, sense of nature, a few others who pointed out this was a copy of an oem part and then all the dots connected by me at the end.

Stop demanding everyone go make a new thread like you tried to do to me. why dont you just leave instead. Everyone still posting viper, delphi, nospool, carfreak, bergs, redrex (OP) are all DIY'ers and want to move forward and try new things.

He doesn't care about us and so he continues to reply several times to let us know how much he doesn't care, sometimes several times in each post. You'd think he had the sense to block those who believe he's a douche by now, but alas.

And of course he will not acknowledge this, and will continue to seek the tummy rubbing praise from others who just want to save a buck and claim otherwise.

So much blah blah blah by the ones who claim insufficient data and still zero research...where's the data? There is nothing wrong with more data, but why is it taking so long? I mean it only took a few days to reverse engineer someone else's contribution to subaru owners, but still people are running in place with the data they claim to need.

Do the work, big player. No one's stopping you. If abrasiveness and honesty are a "turn-off" to you, maybe try a home decorating forum. Try not to "take it personal".

Seek away, no one's stopping you. Have any new data? If not, maybe Foo and you can team up and make data things happen.

and this is NOT my kit. I made ONLY 6. you can poll the audience because most of them are actively posting here. This is OUR kit. idea started with charlie, mrsaturn, sense of nature, a few others who pointed out this was a copy of an oem part and then all the dots connected by me at the end.

Stop demanding everyone go make a new thread like you tried to do to me. why dont you just leave instead. Everyone still posting viper, delphi, nospool, carfreak, bergs, redrex (OP) are all DIY'ers and want to move forward and try new things, youre hindering that progression by resorting to "dom already did it" "dom already did it" "you dont need to find out for yourself" "buy doms".

Your initial contention was that the ID of the part did not matter, which is why you first believed just installing the oem cooler fitting with some random dorman tees and hose was AOK. You only started swaying over to what we were saying after several chimed in and you started looking the fool. Are you seriously that much of a moron? (rhetorical question)

Car_freak and another member in cali are both running the OEM coolant fitting without the restrictor and gosh, ya know what, they haven't imploded their engines. The rest took them only as a preventative measure since it was so cheap and they live in cold climates. I doubt they even need them and bergs testing will provide this thread with conclusive answers.

Any more cute insults? Curious, how does a grown man look in the mirror, and respect the reflection staring back at them, when they sit around on a computer hoping to "hurt" a strangers feelings with meaningless words like some 5 year old on the school playground. Have you no self respect? Are you not embarrassed for yourself.
And yet here you are again...not caring. Of course you didn't acknowledge the purpose of my previous post, not surprised. You're pretty good and running a tangent strategy to avoid acknowledging your bs, seems to work for your fans here. I would request you block me, but we all know you won't.

Any data results yet? I'm sure you care about your fellow enthusiasts and would never knowingly risk harm to their engines to make a quick buck and have your ego stroked.

It's funny the guy who steals an idea from a respected member, to make a quick buck and try to look the hero mentions the word "respect". It's apparent you don't know the true meaning of the word.

A quick buck? I posted EXACTLY what i paid for it, and charged only COST. YOUR hero is the one who stole a subaru $3 fitting and is charging $80 for it.

PDX and 2Slo are clearly just here to troll. If the multiple members still contributing in this thread would like to get a moderator together and have them removed i think now is the time

Then why the hell is everyone here wanting more data? If your kit is safe, dom's kit is safe, then there's no need for data. Period. Wait....

You stated clearly you took your kit off because, ... why was it? I forget. Probably because you're insane and it felt good at the moment. You'll likely decide to put it back on, but with a smaller hole because .....

In the spirit of making up for not being a team player in this game (even though I did offer up 5 bucks to help the DIY cause) I'll do this - I'll get a mish mash of fittings from 1/4" to 3/4" and, I'll ship them to anyone who wants one. No charge. Just PM me. It will work. It will work because Dom's a dick who overcharges and a hole is a hole is a hole.

PM guys. Free orifices on me. They will work... promise.

So before anyone puts together what I mentioned previously, you want to organize a removal? Very trumpian I must say.

I'm here to see what comes of this quest for better data, and replying to you just the same. If you can't handle the truth, you're free to continue denying. We all know you aren't going to acknowledge what's been mentioned several times.

You are doing just as much if not more "trolling" and so it's kind of odd you want to get teammates together to bum rush people who disagree with your methodology. You've made snide "personal attack" insults toward me and another member, and yet you seem to believe you're immune. You can try and edit them out, but obviously that won't fly. Again, you are free to block anyone, but it's obvious you'd rather troll and see what happens.
