Plasti Dip FTW!
Did you ever decide on a motor mount design?
This is a discussion on From 09 to 2011 wrx build :) within the Member Show-Off & Photography forums, part of the Community - Meet other Enthusiasts category; Plasti Dip FTW! Did you ever decide on a motor mount design?...
Yes, beatrush/tigwerk design.
took my new 11 to new heights! my 09 ended without all my parts dyno'd before i traded it in; 330hp 360tq. then i got a few new things for this build like the JDM reversed manifold, 3.5 bar MAP, injectors etc. over all im super happy! 21psi hits at 3000 RPM . all my 09 runs were done on a dynojet but these runs where done on an Air Boy. im not sure how people view Air Boy but ive been told its lower than a dynojet but a little above a mustang. in the parts list ill go ahead and put everything in red thats new vs what the 09 had. you can deside if these parts would get the increase in power im seeing. I did runs with the 3" cutout open and closed. didnt do much as expected with a catless full 3" setup already but o well, it sounds insane
(just remember Air Boy can calculate the new tire size and weight unlike a dynojet can. so in the summer im not gonna see the power move since i'll lower the vehical weight and diameter)
Air boys have a smoothing of 8. at 6 the numbers were about 10 HP and TQ higher.

yeeeee haaaawww. fine tuned a little more with the cutout CLOSED and added 1 step colder spark plugs. much much better! same HP but picked up a little TQ. also got full boost to hit at 2900 RPM!!
I subbed this thread a long time ago. I have a bit of a man crush on your car. (no homo)So far I'm not doing much with my WRX, save some aesthetic mods. Plus with the cold weather coming around, finally, I'd rather shop around and wait for spring. Though could you tell me how you removed the window chrome? That could be a good winter job to hold off the modding bug.

Thanks. On my 09 and 11 I tried the vinyl window chrome delete package my 09 is the poster boy for . only got 1 to work so I went with Plasti Dip in a can. That's what my mirrors are now, front bumper plastic inserts, my grill I made, and roof. the how to i followed is here...http://www.3gwrx.com/forum/index.php...html#msg125702 if you tape off though you dont have to remove them at all for either.
