    Welcome to the site! I have owned 3 EP3s in the past. 1 of which I owned between Subaru's. I sunk a ton of money into that car so I know how much fun those things really are. I have no doubt you will love your subaru more. Have fun, stick around and enjoy.

    I have read this a number of times on this forum and don't understand. Doesn't a stage2 map really require a full TBE? I have read CBE doesn't increase airflow without a DP?

    My 1/4 times are 13.224 @ 101 MPH 60ft 1.74sec thats with a 3/4 full tank of gas Mobile 93OCT
    I had only put 500 bucks into the car at that point, as of now im going to retune it because i shouldnt be running such high boost as a daily driver

    Also i did a road dyno and i got 222HP and 271TQ to the wheels. another thing i gotta work out
