Like I said.. It was making 6psi boost just rolling along at idle cruise.. I am sure it was silly.. But that's also so far out of my price range that it's not even fair to compare.. Haha

@badbadleroybrown: absolutely insane I am sure. at idle, it's pushing 6psi of boost from the blower... It's silly.. But it's also probably a 90k car too. Haha

@badbadleroybrown: my current shortblock is the same as the STi 257 on my stand.. I just don't have quite as good flowing heads on my 255.. With my current setup, I am probably 270hp and could probably hit 300hp with a proper protune.. A built motor would just be much more reliable at this power level. I have built a few air cooled flat 4 and flat 6 airplane engines, but if I do a full build on the EJ257, it's going to be blueprinted by a local builder, I am blessed with a few local experts that are nationally renound Subarus experts.... Like they are currently building a 900+ whp twin charged STi.. Haha my little car is a cake walk for them. But your right, 300hp at the wheels in a small AWD car is fun..

@dchill: I am just on a STi takeoff VF39.. Bigger STi intercooler, catless uppipe and downpipe, I monitor AFR, Boost, Temps, Knock, etc.. Doing TGV deletes and intake and a few small things before I get it protuned. Would be good to get off the cobb OTS tune and get proper tuned. I am planning on splitting the 257 and doing pistons and rods.. It came with my 6speed, I was told it ran great when pulled, but I figure I might as well break it down and make it fresh and make it bullet proof for the little 300hp I am shooting for..

@dchill: That's what I am hoping not to do with this XT Forester. Subarus are fickle about their tunes.. I have already done the bigger turbo, intercooler, full exhaust and other supporting mods.. Along with a 6speed Trans, sti steering rack and sway bars, sti seats and some other goodies.. And I actually have a spare 257 longblock if/when I blow mine up, but I still would like to avoid that if possible.

@badbadleroybrown: hence the 3" bellmouth downpipe to cutout... I know the stock axleback is restrictive when the cutout is not open, but O figure if I want to do racecar things, I'll listen the racecar sounds... Otherwise the stock axleback makes responsible driving much more tolerable.

I made the wise choice of running a cutout off my downpipe so I can close it and have a quiet unassuming car, or open it and listen to this.... I leave it open a lot.

I wish intakes did anything meaningful to my little car.. Subaru actually built a decent intake system that doesn't need to be touched until way over my power goals for me..
