removing the hoses

It literally took me 45 mins to get that damn thing off. get 2 rags and put one in each hose and start turning it until it starts to come off. Trust me use a rag or towel, i learned my lesson, now i have water bubbles in my thumbs:mad: . I also used a lighter to loosen up the rubber hoses a little.

Had mine off and on I don't know how many times (like a dozen or more). Ripped 1 hose...the high temp hoses right over the turbo get brittle...$1.50 straight from subaru.

"Third do not replace the T going to the wastegate actuator with the straight through coupling. This will remove the boost solenoid and basically continuously dump boost through the wastegage. The impact will be that the most boost you will get will around 9 lbs."


If this is true than i'd better replace my T. But i am getting full boost?

The Inline connector is the one to be replaced, not the Tee. Leave the factory Tee alone, as it sounds like you've done. All he is saying is that if you remove the FBC from the loop, you will just end up with whatever boost the wastegate spring is set for. Play with the black 1/8" inline connector only and you're fine.

well i replaced the factory T with a bigger one. So I was wondering if that was what he meant not to change.

Using a larger than factory T will reduce your boost (creates a larger opening to the wastegate actuator, setting it off quicker). Give the factory piece a try.
