I cant imagine how many hours were put into this
lol ya the intercooler didnt help on the sleeper part but i need it for more power














this is what the dash looks like with night vision on




so this is my new power level with working oil pump and front mount intercooler set up and the big s300sx FMW turbo on. so 21psi is safe for me, franz could have pumped more boost out but i need to get home to canada again just in case.

old plot with new plot dyno dynamics both on american 93 gas ( Canadian 94 gas will gain a bit more) next will try race gas which will bring the power way up and over the top because I have lots of room to play with... as of now its just insane to keep it all under control while I am on it, so baby steps on my part while driving and my a/c blows nice and cold to keep me calm lol.




so things I need to do are:

maybe bigger rad (brz koyo)
oil cooler
lots of braces, one for the diff and a H brace up front with strut brace.

I went to the track to try my luck and see if it all holds together this past week, after doing one pass on the q-mile and getting kicked off for no helmet ! I managed to pull a 12.6 out.

I know I know my times suck out the box ! I dont want to snap my axles or leave my Diff on the floor ! so I took off bogging in first and not revving out 2nd or 3rd gear becuase the car likes to lay rubber in the rear tires.

I am on the left Porsche 977 twin turbo on right... high boost button used




so after getting kicked off i went lapping to see how well the car handles ! scary move lol.... my brakes are to small or weak so maybe better pads, and the car feels like it needs some wider tires and bracing to help keep it more stable.
Low Boost On was used for lapping its to scary with high lol

as of now its fun to play with till i fix things out

i wish !!! that would be amazing if subaru gave me something, i have owned about 30 subarus now lol















well the season is done for me and I got out on the track a couple times more for fun to test out my new brake pad's, the pad's helped out a bit more but still need more work.

PFC 01 compound group N pad's work well very well, lots of dust but rather stop then not.


S203 S204 Spec-c Ra R oil cooler adapter factory from subaru oem has come in. built in thermostat opens at 100 C and OEM Made In Japan By STi no other adapter is better !



my spare earls cooler should do the job, got rid of A/C for this set up lol




I put the 86 Subaru Leone away for the season but next year to do lit will be fun.

wider sticky tires + smaller wheels 15"
Race gas tune 500hp DD it
better suspension stiffer springs
STi oil cooler
BRZ koyo rad install
bigger CV axles




i also was going to swap out my STi Spec-c 6mt 3.900 to my S204 STi 6mt 3.545, but its now in my winter beater (99 Nico). i think my winter beater will be more in need of longer gearing next spring when i do the motor swap.
