    Exclamation Tuning

    Hey anybody got any goood tunning ideas........
    the exterior looks good as you have all said, now i want to make it move a little quicker and also stop a little better.
    Thinking of an induction kit, also a recuirculating dump valve.
    Any way if you have any ideas let me know

    Cheers......

    PS thanks to those who liked the motor. Remember im from across the pond.

    Start by moddifying the exhaust; up-pipe, downpipe, and a cat-back. Induction kit won't do much, and a recirculating dump-valve isn't going to give you anymore power. From there get Ecutek flash.

    For stopping better look into some new pads, brake lines, and rotors.

    It's a reflash of your standard ECU. It's done by quite a few people in the u.k. They tune the car on a dyno to optimize air fuel ratios, timing, and boost... This is the mod you will probably most appreciate! Great power when combined with a turbo-back exhaust and up-pipe... I don't know if you're on Scoobynet, but for you it will probably be a great resource, it's the UK subaru site..

    Great advice.

    Like he mentioned, ecutek is a form of engine mgmt that reflashes your computer. There are other forms of engine mgmt like accesspot, utec, etc. This is a great first engine mod as it provides a safe path for future engine mods. There is no need to really worry about hurting your engine (within reason).
