I would say go for it and pop in the 300v for track days

The detergents would be nice to keep everything clean although I change the oil often. We disabled closed loop fueling to rectify some driveability issues in closed loop due to the front o2 being moved post-turbine with my twinscroll setup. the tune itself is not excessively rich, but it's slightly rich a lot more often. E85 was also in the plan since I've started running 300V but I didn't get the car dialed in on 93 until last summer and just never got to E85 tuning. That's my plan for this year though

I would suggest just put the o2 back in the header where it belongs. run your wideband gauge in the DP. Too much hassle doing it otherwise if you have to chase closed loop problems.

most of my friends run 300v (700-1700whp range) and its always been great. Even on very high powered subarus at extremely high revs have found it to be great too so you can't go wrong with it Seeing what e85 can do (we don't have it at the pump here so have to buy barrels) you'll have fun for sure.

Interested in doing a similar setup to this, but with a rotated uppipe and a custom downpipe. Did they just cut off the 3 bolt subaru flange and add the short extension and transition for the vband flange on the uppipe? Boost response and drive-ability look crazy!

I'm rotated/twinscroll, the front o2 has to be post-turbine to sample all cylinders (similar to JDM OE TS setups). The closed loop issue was just a hiccup under light throttle, only noticeable while driving around town. I have maps with closed loop enabled in case I wanted to save some fuel on a long drive but I haven't noticed a significant enough drop to both switching maps. All in the throttle control

Do you drive your car in the winter? I'm interested in hearing your thoughts on cold startup with with 5w-40 if so.

That's correct. We cut to the top off the uppipe for the vband flange after deciding on location and angle, then built the downpipe, then cut the uppipe for the EWG and the downpipe for the recirc.

You're right, its a blast to drive!

I don't think the ecu has any logic about volume for the o2. It wouldn't matter if you are only sampling 2 cylinders as long as you have a wideband in the downpipe to monitor yourself. but if you're able to drive around it I guess its fine.

I have another car for a daily driver/winter car, but I do drive it during the winter (driving it daily right now as my other car is getting some mods done ). Typically I wouldn't be driving it much under 15F or so, but I also garage park as well as indoor parking at work. If I parked outside it would be on a block heater no matter what anyways. 5w40 is no problem for really cold. If it was consistently under 15F I would go back to german Castrol 0w30 but ive seen cars running 15w50 start up without issue in 10F temps after sitting all day... any good synthetic will start up and have a good film so I wouldn't worry about wear. It's more about the length of time it takes to warm up and drive, during that time you're running pretty rich so more fuel dilution, so that would be my main reason to go "thinner" if I was in a cold climate.

I've had a bunch of body parts for years now that I haven't installed yet. This summer I will be changing up the look a little bit, starting with some WRX side skirts. I don't really like the STI ones and as I am also changing the front lip I think these will tie it together a little better.








Next up is a Greddy Lip and some Morimoto LED foglights, have to make some custom fit for these.

Purchased December 2013...., painted 2016, installed May 2017...

So it took a while, but well worth the wait. I had to do the wrx sides to match as I don't think the sti skirts look right with this lip.

Also dropped in a pair of Hella Sharptones recently to better blast the horrible drivers and head-down clueless texting pedestrians

Very clean, the lip and skirts work perfectly together. Always did like the Greddy lip and well.. I swapped to Wrx skirts too.

Thanks, yeah there aren't enough pics floating around so I was always worried if it would look as good as I thought... i'm very happy how it all turned out
