    Yeah just noticed that a bunch of my posts have been getting doubled for some reason. Maybe the migration?

    I was wondering why there were so many of those, would make sense.

    And guess we'll see how the TMIC removal goes this week

    Be extra careful with that rear bolt!

    That's not the one I had issues with. I had issues with front bolt on the turbo. I think someone else had the same issue on the same bolt on the turbo.

    Be very careful with the bolts that connect the TMIC to the turbo. This is going into aluminum and the bolts can strip out very easily. Recommend a thread chaser and anti-seize compound. Use a torque wrench when re-tightening. Set torque at 20 ft/lbs max, or you will be sorry.

    Just run open turbo. If you have it just boost into the air, it will be a lot more effective at cooling the charge. And you don't have to worry about those pesky bolts!

    And finished getting the DP installed tonight! Flashed to Stage 2 with no problems (really starting to dig this AP!) and gave her a run.

    AP shows 326hp/341 torque. From what I've seen this is about what it should be right?

    Managed to pull a 4.7s 0-60 launch and a 13.4s 1/4 (that one could use a bit of work ).

    Have felt this way since I bought the car but even more so now....

    BEST. PURCHASE. EVAR. Now just need to figure out who the guys with the blue/black wrx's are at work...

    Those figures seem a little high for a simple stage 2. Probably not WHP.

    It's just what AP is reading, which I think is flywheel. Was around 278 when i took a run with it stock and 287 stage 1 so I think it's plausible? Gonna get it pro-tuned eventually so I'm not running so rich, will see for sure then.
