WHAT A FLIPPING DAY!!!!

I guess I should say long day..

Left Clarksville at 4:30am arrived at topspeed at 10ish. The car cooled down for about 30 minutes or so before we loaded it on the DYNO. The car was sputtering (due to the PERRIN big MAF) anyway Doug did his thing on the PC for about 30 minutes and the loaded it to the ECU. The very first pull looked promising and netted 394 AWHP.at 19psi:) So now we have a baseline so Doug turned up the wick. 2nd pull netted 378 (WHAT THE HELL JUST HAPPENED) Made another pull 376.... OK DOUG, your going the wrong way:tdown: Long story short...Collapsing SAMCO inlet. Doug's exact word "I've never seen a samco collapse" Well if it can happen it will happen to me..... So he turned down the boost to 18 to be safe and that netted 386. So then we went for the street test and the first stop light we stopped at we saw smoke coming up from under the car. We went back to the shop and the culprit was a leaking turbo oil feed line. They replaced the hose and off I went. So now I have to fix the collapsing problem and take it back. Doug seems to think that because of the promising baseline, that 450 - 480 is obtainable with 23 - 25 lbs of boost. I can't Imagine another 75 - 100 hp because the car is a blast now. Just ask the two mustangs that got a little taste of the subaru on the way home....:lol:
Hey so when are you going back to get retuned?

That is why I kept all my mods simple Tim. Even the easy stuff can end up more than bargained for. So did you wind up with a successful install??

After owning a 20G and now an APS SR55 I would vote against the 20G. Very good turbo but you can get more power with equivalent lag from a RED or SR55. Just my 2 cents

Well that's the thing I love my 20g cuz it's just enough power for me and I can hang with pretty much anything around here. Yeah a red or SZ55 would be great to have but I don't plan on having that much power yet until I get more money to upgrade my engine right with internals and everything. Horsepower takes money, and there are plenty of 20g's out there that can run a 1/4 damn near as fast as a red or SZ55.;) Just gotta have the right mods and tune, and most importantly the driver.

Yeah,

Just picked up some PB Blaster from the store. However, I can't blame one of those ratchet sets. I bought one of those cheap generic tool sets from Walmart. You get what you pay for :(

Should be able to knock most everything out tommorw and Wednesday the latest!
