2011 Subaru STi Built + Stock Location GTX3076R – Dyno Numbers

Today we have this 2011 Subaru STi that came to us with a bunch of issues from previous work done somewhere else.  After fixing up the issues and making sure the car was safe to be tuned we put it up and had Sasha do his thing.  The car was initially tuned on 94 Octane and then the methanol injection was added for more power.  Meth is a great way to make more power and improve cooling however you must carefully monitor the system as any failure in it can have catastrophic consequences.  Based on the point where this set-up meets boost threshold Sasha felt the motor likely had been rebuilt with lower compression.

2015 WRX Project Northstar – Kartboy Shifter Arm & IAG AOS

Well it’s been a few months since the last update and I haven’t had a lot of time to get stuff done on the car. The shop has been running on all cylinders but we found a little time to get some smaller things done. Previously I had installed the TiC shifter bearing and didn’t notice a huge change in the shifter feel, likely due to the fact the bushing it replaces is very small and was almost new. I was actually waiting for Kartboy to finish and release their short shifter arm which was released last year and so we took some time to install it. The factory shifter feel is actually not too bad, however the throw is pretty long and I’ve always liked having a shorter throw. The installation of the arm is pretty straight forward replacing the original arm assembly underneath the car. We recently made a before and after video showing the throw of the shifter on a 2016 WRX which is below.

Subaru Ringland Failures – Are the forums right?

Subaru Ringland failures is a topic I have wanted to write about for quite a long time but I haven’t found the time until now to really put “pen to paper” as they say.  This is probably one of the most controversial topics that makes its rounds throughout the Subaru community.  There are a lot of theories and discussions on what causes these failures.  These include things like poor design, weak components, abuse, fuel line routing etc.   With so many opinions it can be difficult to really weed through everything and get an idea of what steps you can take to reduce the risk of having a ringland failure.  I do not in any way claim to be a guru or that I have the 1 size fits all answer to this.  But over my many years involved in the Subaru community and helping customers build their cars or rebuild after a failure I feel that it’s important to share my thoughts and experience.
