Ah, we're in the same boat then. Yes, it does appear that I still have a few degrees to play with in the engine bay.

i was gonna ask, did you spec out your turbo while you had it out?

i measured the compressor wheel, and checked the numbers on the housing with specs i found online. a map, even. let me see if i can find those, and i'll post them in here for comparison's sake.

ok, here's what i came up with.

compressor wheel has a 2" inducer/minor od, and a 2.950" major od. spec out to a T04E 46 trim compressor.

http://64.225.76.178/catalog/comp_wheels.html

then, the turbine checks out as this T3 with a .63 a/r (from the casting). not 100% sure if it's standard, stgII, or stgIII, but i'd assume std.

http://64.225.76.178/catalog/thousing.html

here's the link for compressor maps as well.

http://64.225.76.178/catalog/compmaps/fig12.html

so, T3/T04E, 46 trim.

the pressure and air we're moving at 5 psi is out of the efficiency range of this turbo. off the left of the map.

i can't wait to get my ej205 in there with some lower compression... 18psi, some more fuel, and a little tuning. ought to be some fun.

Nah, didn't get the chance. Wanted to be able to get home that day. All I know is that it's a Turbonetics T3/T4.

I hear BOV more then anything else
I think the trick is to somehow have the camera outside the car without getting that rushing wind sound. I'm thinking behind the sunroof difuser or one of the review mirrors.

Something I've been looking forward to changing/upgrading. I'm pretty sure the brakes were upgraded using used parts and I never did quite like the look of em. Looking forward to changing to this tomorrow

It's a good thing I actually went ahead with the brakes. I've never touched them since I bought the car and it seemed to brake fine so I left it. I didn't know before how a Subaru's suppose to feel like braking, let alone with 4-pots.

But when I when I went to change them, the rear left had a different set of pads then the rear right and in the front, the pads with the squealers were both on the left, and the normal pads both on the right

I think the rear pads were also incorrect cause they were forced into the calipers, took me hours to pry them out. all rotors were pretty grooved to ****, especially on the inside, looked like from heat.

Oh well, all fixed now

Looks like I'll need to change the clutch again. It's been a year, but for some reason the Stage 2 'F1 Racing' clutch I got off eGay isn't holding up to my F1 driving (I was between jobs at the time and cheaped out...)

Time I get a real clutch and decided rather then ask Jeff to haul another stock flywheel up from Arkansas, to get a real flywheel to match.

Picked up an ACT 13 lbs Streetlite flywheel off eGay for $100. Described as having only 300 miles on it. Looks like it just needs a cleaning, the surface still feels smooth otherwise.



I'm not in a rush at all for another clutch yet, so I'm keeping my eye out for any deals over the winter/spring, and change it out mostly likely in spring/summer next year.

Going by manufacturer's sites for prices, ClutchMasters seems to be the best bang for the buck so far.
