Default Dnorris89 SWP E85 WRX Hatch Journal

Hey guys, ive always lurked Nasioc but never really had the desire to post or make a journal until recently when ScoobyFreak decided to sell his car. Ive always been a huge fan of his SWP Hatch and decided to create my own journal with his being sold.

I picked up my 2013 SWP Hatch with 6 miles on it just outside of Times Square, NYC the summer of 2013. I opted for the Limited with the all season package and took delivery same day. Coming from an 09 Civic Si with a Full-Race EFR 7064 kit bolted on I thought I would miss the power, however I soon found out these cars are just as much fun to drive and have none of the traction issues I dealt with on the Honda.

Highly recommend changing the rear diff fluid with the trans oil. Lots of metal on the plug for only 30k

Is that the IAG Street or Comp AOS? Which did you choose and why? I've been having a hard time deciding on an AOS, and the hours of research I've done has only confused me more.

I have the street and chose it mostly because IAG recommends running the street with E85 since the street recirculates back to the inlet and removes the ethanol from the crankcase.

aside from the install and changing the trans fluid its amazing. they have some fitment issues they need to tidy up especially with aftermarket bypass valves. Best alternative to a front mount imo

Thanks for the reply, any reason there are 2 valve stems on your wheels?

Nt03's come with two valve stems so you can hook up a digital pressure gauge on one and fill using the other. Allows you to get very accurate tire pressures

Just switched out my Hawk HP+ pads for Stoptech quietposi pads and they made a world of difference. No more squealing and low speeds and brake dust has reduced dramatically. For 30 bucks you really cannot beat these pads.

Update: Finally had my Tomei ELH, Grimmspeed up-pipe and EWG and some other goodies installed. Made the switch to E85 and headed up to Prime Motoring to have JR tune my car. Car made some solid numbers on E60ish since there was still a decent amount of pump gas in the tank. I got a killer deal on the Flex Fuel kit and am curious to see how much power the car will make once its truly running on E85.
Current power is 340/373. Torque was kept low to save the stock clutch and trans. There is a dyno day coming up in the near future I will take it to once its fully E85 in the tank.

few minor things have changed, car is up to 7000 miles on E85 with 0 issues. Going to a dyno day this weekend with a full tank to see what it puts down on true E85. Dyno results to follow
