This is a discussion on Ninfourteener's Progress Thread + Pics within the Engine Modifications forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; That sucks. I've had no problems with the Cobb endlinks, but I don't think they make them anymore....

    Well, I'm certainly glad I saw this because I have eyed the Whiteline links for some time now, thinking they were simply some of the best. I will definitely NOT be going with them now, and rather get some Kartboys or something, lol

    I went with the Perrin's because of the type of bushings they used.

    I too went with Perrins on my rears because of the bushings. They were solid pieces. But with the bolts tightened to spec...I lost one and the swaybar was no longer connected. I was a little pissed because I never heard back from Perrin. I had to hit up my local hardware store and come up with a bolt solution

    Also for the record the Perrin "Stout mounts" for the Swaybar are garbage. They are aluminum blocks basically but are very soft. The threads ended up breaking and stripping on both of them, meaning my swaybar was no longer connected to anything! I had to put the stock mounts back on...and then they were fine from there on out

    In all fairness, Whiteline has already responded to me. They asked for the receipt, and pictures of the broken product.

    I not only had them both..... but I also provided them with the thread I created on slcsubaru.com when I installed everything, so they can't say they were installed incorrectly.

    I sent that to them this morning... we'll see what happens.

    Wow, I just read through all 20 pages at once, your a machine.

    Anyways, did you ever get it protuned or dynoed? If so what did you put down?

    ^^^ Thanks!

    Actually, no. When I got here, Cobb told me that with a dynotune, they "might" be able to squeeze out 10-15 more hp than the OTS map.... and it would cost me $400 in dynotuning costs.

    Wasn't worth it to me.... car has PLENTY of power.

    I thought about going the 20g/750cc route, but put that on the backburner after the first track meet. My car couldn't handle the power it had in the curves.... adding more power would be senseless... so that's why over the past 2 months I've been doing suspension upgrades.

    Now... gotta get working on the Brat again... poor thing has been neglected.

    Oh yea.... and looks like there's a Bordeax pearl, 100% ground-up restored, 1994 Subaru SVX LSi joining the family here shortly ...... Shhhhh

    I did notice you went from pure perforance to pure suspension. It's pretty nuts that your having issues in your competitions now because you have too much power.

    I guess you kind of have to decide, you going for Rally or Drag lol :P

    I'd go with the Protune A Protune makes a world of different compared to the OTS Cobb Maps I personally believe.

    Come on friend! Get the protune! You've spent more on other stuff. No reason to pass on 10-15hp (plus 30wtq)!

    No doubt. I got mine because Cobb had stated the VF-39 map was not compatible with the VF-43, so I did the protune.

    I'm sure I gained a lot more over any OTS...

    Sounds more like a bolt problem than an endlink problem. What bolts did you use? OEM, Perrin's or the ones that came with your sway bars? That would peeve me if Perrin ignored me though.

    I gained 32.2 whp, and approximately 50wtq with my protune.

    ^^^ Really?

    I don't know... just going by what Cobb told me.

    A lot has to do with elevation (high here in Utah), and available gas (crap here in Utah).

    I'll think about it... one day perhaps... maybe I'm just ewaiting for that day when I finally do get around to doing the 20G swap.

    Planned on a Brembo upgrade next though... so we'll see

    I did notice you went from pure perforance to pure suspension. It's pretty nuts that your having issues in your competitions now because you have too much power.
    My "issue" isn't "too much power" by far... I was running against 500hp, caged, sponsored, 12" wide tired, fire-breathing track monsters. I didn't expect to be #1.... but I did expect to do beter than #10...... and I SHOULD have.

    I'm on 91 octane 10% ethanol crap gas... and at 6000ft.

    I have a VF39, STi TMIC, silicone y-pipe, Catted TBE, and K&N SR intake.

    I went from 220 as the baseline, to 252.2. The biggest improvement was the curves though. Much more linear. (Actually feels like less power even though I have more!)

    ^^^ You and I have very similar mods, and similar circumstances as well.

    I dunno... maybe... we'll see.

    Have any problems with boost spiking, CELs, etc after the tune?
