@Baron
No worries, I was referring to the other forums. Nobody at the German Subaru Club Forum for example responded.
Thanks, it's good to have a legal opportunity to earn extra money with a thing I enjoy doing.
I have to replace the middle resonator as I grinded that thing too much going over curbs when the car was lower. I need to go to the inspection (the infamous TÜV) in January/February and the car wouldn't pass with a leaking resonator. But that's an easy fix by just replacing the whole thing.
The Header is awesome! The powerband seems really smooth and is very driveable and predictable on track (It's ok for driving on the road too). I can't wait to put the 3 Port Solenoid in and get the car on the carberry rom. That should increase spool up, add a bit more power and the driveability should be even better! That's the plan for the winter really.
What is your redline currently set at 7500 ?

I have hit the limiter at 8200 when I lost focus once in 4th.

I think it's 7600 or 7800. Not sure.
There's a spot at the Hockenheimring where I hit the Revlimiter and am just lacking those few more hundred revs the JDMs have.
Since mine doesn't have a short 5th and 6th Gear, shifting in 5th early doesn't really make sense.
Anyway, that's just that one spot I wish I had more revs, who knows where else they'd come in handy

Here to be exactly:

Coming out of the Mercedes Turn in 3rd you shift in 4th pretty early on that short straight before entering the Motodrome and run out of Revs around 100-200 Meters before the braking point.

I am jealous that you have such a world class facility so close to you , I wish I lived within an hour or two of tracks like that.

I can tell you, everytime I drive over the bridge towards track entrance I get that historic feeling being aware of all the great races I can think of happened there. It really is a privilege to be able to throw cars around those famous 2.84 miles of tarmac.
I just wish the Nurburgring would be closer...

Anyway, started working on the Brake cooling:

The white pieces will be painted black.

These will just be routed to a cutout in the mudguard to blow air into the wheel well / towards the axle.

Allright, here we go:







So this is what I did yesterday.
I'm aware that it might not be the most efficent way and creating an overpressure in the wheel well might cause a loose of downforce in the front.
Since the car doesn't have any major aero, I think this might not be a big factor for me. The Front Lip probably generates more downforce anyway.
The 100mm Hose blows onto the Prova Style Brake Duct Plate.
The 51mm Hose directly onto the rotor.
I removed the backing plates of the rotors too.

Since Zipties make your car go faster I should now be able to hit 300km/h on the Parabolika

What do you mean exactly?
They hold the 51mm hose that goes to the brake. So they are in use already.


Idin,
Good to know

In your first pic there is the ducting from the foglight, and a smaller fiberglass (?) duct that is below it. So you have 4 ducts in the bumper and the two large foglight ones are for the brakes. Just wondering about the little ones.

The smaller, grey hoses are connected to those:
