Checkout the APS SS45. Great turbo. I have had a chance to ride in Kirill'a car from RallySport Direct. The turbo screams all the way to redline.

Looks good, how do you like the headers? Noticeable gains?

There's a local guy who also has an '08 and has already done pretty much what I want to do, he's using the Blouch with good results which is why I was leaning towards it. With meth injection he was getting close to 400whp.

Didn't notice much improvement with just the headers but then again my butt-ometer isn't very accurate. It wasn't until the uppipe/downpipe was on with the stage 2 map that I noticed a big improvement.

Finished two more projects this weekend. Got the rear swaybar and end links installed, turned out to be the easiest of the two. Much better in the turns now. I've got a sudden urge to take it on a road trip and find the twistiest road I can. Problem is, there isn't any in Kansas.



Also finally got around to putting the Perrin CBE on. Turned out to be a PITA because my friends hydraulic lift decided to not cooperate so had to do it with jackstands. The tips are slightly misaligned because I ran out of time and patience.

Default FMIC Install Phase I

Damn you Perrin and your 18% off sale Was going to wait until next year for the front mount but it was too good a deal to pass up. Installation is pretty straightforward although some of the instructions were a little vague. Below is a pic of the areas that will need some trimming for the intercooler core to fit.



The plastic under each headlight needs trimmed slightly as well as several tabs at the bottom of the radiator support. A cutoff wheel or even a Dremel will make quick work of it.

One of the side effects of trimming the opening in the lower bumper is you lose several of the clips that hold the fog light covers in place. I know of one person that had them come loose on the highway so you can see my ghetto fix in the next photo.

No video yet. It's going into the shop in a couple of weeks to swap out the turbo and injectors, will try to get some video of it on the dyno.

Car looks great. But come on, we have some good curvy roads north and east of Kansas City. Come on the next kcsubaru.com cruise and I'll show you.
