LGT tuned by [email protected]

so, finally, after my laziness taking almost a year to get the correct firmware revision (2005.5 revision) for my AP... i was finally able to get in and get tuned by paul. Subaru in its infinite wisdom did a midyear firmware revision on the 05 legacy GTs which prevented the AP from working properly. after contacting cobb i was able to flash the AP to their 2005.5 software (took almost 4 hours) and load their stage 2 base map.


It ran pig rich and smelled like ***. the back of my bumper is covered in soot from the smoke the car puffed under WOT.

the first pull numbers were pathetic. barely over 200 hp/tq.

but now:



not bad for a ***gy autobox. its a mountain of power off the line now, wheel spin from 1st to 2nd. ridiculous.

power mods:
Perrin Wrapped Equal Lengths
Perrin UP
Cobb Catted DP
Greddy Evo2 CBE
Drop in filter

and i also got this gem on my bill:
