Yea, I talked with my tuner and he said it never got hot with him. Either way, easy fix.

I'll be putting on my oil cooler at the next oil change as well. Car should run nice and cool during the summer. I also plan to put on my turbo blanket. I'd like to take the car to the track once or twice this year so hopefully I can keep this thing cool when I do it.

Also, I figured with this car I would mellow out my mod bug pretty hard. Not even close. -_- Looking at suspension and brake stuff, an exhaust valve cut out, wheels, engine dress up. WHY.
Hahaha. It never ends....

Yeah, I bought the STi as my daily driver so I wouldn't modify it. My prior daily driver was faster than the STi so the mod bug didn't hold out very long fast forward 2 years and ENJOY YOUR BRAND NEW FORGED SHORTBLOCKKKKK.

It'll only end when I don't have a car. I'd probably try to modify a Prius.

Haha, I bought my car brand new and told myself no mods until after the warranty. Fast forward 5000 miles and I was stage 2. fml. Buut, I did drive the car at stage 2 for over 50k miles so I should be proud of that. Too bad the mods were going else where.

Putting the car on a Dyno Jet tomorrow. A friend is getting some pulls in on his H/C/I C6 ZO6 and asked if I wanted to go and run my car too. Of course I'm down for that. Curious what the number difference will be between the two dyno's.

Didn't get a chance to run on the Dyno Jet. They were doing AWD maintenance on the front portion and could only run RWD cars at the time. Oh well.

Side note, raced my buddies 2008 R6 w/205lb rider. We did 40 rolls, by 100mph he had a bike length on me. The car is surprising the hell out of me and it's obvious the dyno numbers can't be the only thing one goes off of. Also, I was running E72(dyno'd on E50) at the time and max PSI was in the 27-28 range.

I still need to get mine installed. Almost a little embarrassed that it's taken this long.

Yea, while I was under the car it looks like I might have a head-gasket leaking as well. This car is really pushing the buttons of what I can take. haha honestly, I'll give it another year and if the problems continue it's getting sold.

Also, I put in Amsoil 10w-30 and idle PSI is like 12psi. Start up is around 90-95psi. Is it just cause of the 30 as to why the idle is so low? My engine builder recommended the oil too me. Under load and driving the car is in the upper 80psi, and WOT is 100+psi
