Default Any Manual guys want to play? All I have to say is 3 letters IPT!

ANYONE looking for DRAMATIC performance increase with the stock Subaru



Need to Contact John and his group of guys in NJ, They had my car for a week, did a Converter, Modified Valve Body and switched the trans and front diff to all synthetic fluids and put in a tranny cooler, Let me say when the car now is floored from a stop, there is a moment of turbo lag and BAM the car takes OFF no more hang on grandpa is coming lol....Not to mention the ability to Brake torque the trans to 42-4400 rpm and release the brake :P( carrier launch anyone :lol

It is AMAZING how the car is transformed! And we havent even done the rest YET!

If you have an auto and are looking for increased performance this service is BALLS up the best for the auto!

Ck him out!
IPT

It is well worth it...you can even send your valve body or tq converter(they modify the stocker) to him for the service and they will get it back to you...!
Anyone with q's feel free to email or pm me!

I wont lie, it was not cheap by any means, but I had both the converter and Valve body mods, plus full synth fluid in the trans and the diffs, and a trans cooler(giant) put in and such...
Plus labor(usually do my own work, but since this is trans...)
if you do it yourself and just get the parts done, the conv is $525 and the VB mod is $525... pretty reasonable for a complete custom TC!

I'll be doing the valve body mod next.

How firmer are the shifts? Any comments on daily driving?

the shifts are nice and firm, but like john at IPT says the TC actually causes the shifts to soften so they are not as hard if you did the VB mod alone without the TC, but I find in general, the trans just feels better overall, shifts are more decisive and quick for sure!

Did you blow the stock tranny? I'm heading to IPT so they can look at my Level 10 VB.. too many guys have had issues with the Level 10 valvebody. I already have the IPT torque converter.. hopefully it's as loose as I hope (motor isn't done yet).

nope, just taking a preemptive strike on the trans in prep for more power and performance!
I've heard issues with the L10 VB and TC's which is why I went to IPT to get it done right the first time

I am also planning on getting a IPT valvebody in the future. How long does it take to take out and put it back in? Also what are some other pro's about the valvebody, does it actually make the car faster 1/4 mile? So far I have stage 2 cobb and protorque converter.

Well john did everything in 4 days I dropped off on Sat, they worked on it m-thurs and it was picked up Sat....

He has a forum now, you can post a qustion to the man direct
http://www.importperformancetrans.co...649aa88942c2ef

It does a lot like help the car hold power better, and gets rid of the shifting delays, with the TQ converter it is softer than without due to stall.....

I have a 98 Legacy GT sedan 4 EAT with full brullen exhaust ... equal flow headers and back ... and running neosynthetic in tranny plus cooler ... neo-synthetic is what Subaru WRC team was/has been running ..

very pleased with improved overall perfromance ... will follow up your info and see if it would be helpful .. Good information for those with the 4EAT ..

oh ... and yes it's only a 4EAT ... 2nd in Oregon Rally Cross in prepared AWD class for the season ...

and the 98 4 EAT is also 2 seconds quicker 0 to 60 than my stock 97 5 spd leg gt...

thanks

Charlie

Interesting. Which would extend the life more on the automatic the TC or the valve body mod. I probably only have enough money to do one of those at this point. Along with a tranny cooler.

You should call them - they're close enough that you may want to drive the car there and have them pull the trans, etc.

Default Has anyone dealt with IPT lately?

I'm new to this board but looking for info regarding transmission work at IPT. I am looking to upgrade the automatic transmission on a 2005 Subaru Outback XT. Folks on the Legacygt.com board recommended IPT highly for a valve body or torque converter upgrade but I called them this week and it sounds as though they have had personnel changes and Ty (the guy the Legacygt.com folks dealt with) is no longer there. Since I'm looking at a 12 hour trip and serious money for the upgrades I was wondering if anyone had work done recently. If so, are they still as good as in the past?

Default Hard Launch!

interesting brings me back to the old days of Muscle cars infact they still use Automatics at the drag strips any old schoolers could verify that a well done up automatic will launch just as hard if not harder then a manual my old camaro was able to chirp hard going into 2nd gear 7ooR4 trans with a shift kit. I think thats pretty cool that it can be done to the Subies.
