Huge thanks and thumbs up to the EQ crew! Just got my car back from having a complete motor rebuild, turbo upgrade, etc etc. done and it feels AMAZING!

I can't wait to get it broken in so it can get tuned.

Huge thanks to Nash for all of his hard work in getting this done.

Thanks to Ed for working through everything to get it finished up and back on the road.


- Matt

Thanks Matt! I'm glad the car is feeling good. Your motor sounded excellent and the car drove very smoothly during the test drive. I'm really excited to see what it does once its broken in

Rough guess based on the setup and the car running E85 is 400whp. But we won't know for sure until I get it broken in and tuned.

Great so far!! I've put over 400 miles on it already and its running SO smooth. I can't wait to get the final tune done, it wants to pull so hard already.

Cold starts after sitting over night are a little rough and take a few tries to get it to turn over, but once its been running it starts up instantly. After that everything runs so smooth. I honestly can't believe its the same car with how much better it is running now.

Awesome work on it!

Sounds like a great build from Ed and the crew! I like to here about the cold start issue, I have been fighting this for last 6months thinking my car was only car having problems. Only has issues when car sits for the day, once started it will crank over fine. I think I gave Miles a few extra gray hairs. Miles Got it dialed in now. Can't wait to check out the final tune....... Ed going to work his magic and we know now how he does it.......

Hey man,

How are you liking that GT52? I was leaning towards that turbo in the future. Thanks

Kevin.

Hey Kevin -

So far I love it, I go in this Saturday for the final tune and will no more then. But so far even on stock boost and having to break in the motor it feels fantastic.

Ed's crew did such an awesome job setting up the car for it, I can't wait to see how it pulls once tuned.

Holy crap!!!! The STI is an absolute monster now.

Ed will post up the full details, but we made 419whp and 465 ft/lb torque.

It pulls SO hard and is insanely smooth. Awesome work again by the EQ crew!
