  1. I may have strayed back to the dark side
  2. Does it actually need bigger squirters at this stage? Have you done a pressure test on the whole intake? Have you checked fuel pressure once it comes on boost (fuel pump or reg being sad?)
  3. Yeah exactly - I don't know what hose the half dozen owners who are saying they've done stuff on a rev D have done to be honest And yes agreed re where to plug in the hose - that fulla on the bookface I get the feeling is not too mechanical so didn't want to over complicate it
  4. @Kiwi_Fozze DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM Also by way of follow up My previous two Rev D legacies both had the revised hose arrangement - meaning no "hose 10 mod" to be done, they had a direct line from manifold to BOV from factory I have a Rev C (backlit dash, new interior, old headlights and ECU setup) at the moment which been done, runs 15psi primary by 2400rpm and about 20psi on secondary (there may be another issue here) - it ran about 10 / 14psi before Some rev D apparently do not have a revised hose arrangement? I am confuse by this - I get the feeling there's some confusion re what hoses are even being talked about
  5. Eh you'll do what you do "on a road surface" is a load of S*** - targa runs on the road and I'm reasonably sure that would not count How many services does your car get? Didn't you only get the intake last week?
  6. Ha @Timmah bumped you off Also contender for worst legacy VOD ever Note - not current car, or the one before it, BH5 with V7 sti top mount, pod filter, big muff and no cats
  7. To be fair it's not the "only" place they test a car It's more an easily understood benchmark for people, like 0-100 times or a HP figure
  8. Least now the warranty is void you can do it up We have a drag times thread on here, times vary massively with driver technique more than anything I'd expect to nail a high 12 in yours if someone else was footing any potential repair bills
  9. Was this before or after you found out how far 4th gear stretches? We've all done stupid S*** but pick your battles man
  10. Have you considered buying a forester
  11. I don't mean to be a cock but can't help it... Drifting in front of a cop is not what I'd call driving fairly responsibly Number of tickets incurred does not translate to skill level
  12. Probably but why half arse it Use vag-com cable: Oh no it's pinging I need to fix it, wait I can't Tactrix: It runs mint now I want launch control oh neat I can do that
  13. Removing back pressure can also make the car *safer* than stock as it is less det prone, the risk comes from if boost rises more than safe levels and is left unchecked Do it once, do it right, big downpipe and no cat, then that box is ticked If you buy a tactrix cable you can look for yourself at how it's running (you can look at if it's pulling ignition timing, etc), or you can chuck it on a dyno for a $150 power run which can a) listen for knock and b) check the state of the air / fuel ratios to put your mind at ease The main thing is if in doubt just find out - remember it's a 15 year old car which hasn't had an easy life, it is as prudent a thing to do now and then as an oil change if you're planning on looking after the car
  14. Actually bought something for it, it's receiving a 5 puck h/d exedy clutch once I get the motivation to install it Taking a leaf from @boon's book and saying you know what F***it why not have something a little antisocial in what it realistically a toy car for me
  15. Yeah but, still You'd then have a car making 450hp at 3k rather than 300hp at 3k I'm not sure what the argument is to be fair, they're built around regulations and as you said it has a purpose in mind (maximising performance with that restrictor) For the same cost you could build an S2000 with a twin churbro viper V10 in it Or a monster truck which can do backflips Or like at least 8 jokeravengers and a batbaru Or half a holiday house at the mount Or an ex russian jet fighter I go back to the "compare it to a V8 supercar" analogy - sure you can pick something to model against but that thing has rules to adhere to, if you ignore them then you'll find it very easy to surpass the thing you're comparing to
