    I never have done it... I heard it was a PITA to change though. Would just using the reinforced IC piping help at all with power output?

    Is inlet swap hard?

    It's historically been 3rd gear blowing on the 06/07s. And not from gear slamming either. Usually just from the power.

    The 1st and 2nd seem to be fairly stout


    I'm sure Subaru changed to the 3.7 for gas mileage reasons ZakAttak.

    That's all I search about. I'm aware of the weakness. What gets me the most, is those posts, "I'm pushing xxx amount whp more and my tranny is fine! "

    Anyways I just want to fix the problem. I am going to hold off on the power gains and the power trips and just make my baby run the right way!

    A leak in the turbo inlet will cause screwed up MAF readings, not a boost leak. You need to find the leak in the FMIC piping probably.

    Actually, im starting to think i dont have a leak anymore. Its been a lot cooler out in so cal. Its been in the the low 60's at night time and i saw 15.4 today at 75% throttle. However i did see at WOT, starting at 80mph a huge boost spike! I dont know what boost i was hitting but, after 3500 rpm's i was hitting something greater than 18.4 Intake manifold pressure! (maxed out my greddy informeter).
