Martin's 05 Jdm V- Mounted FXT

So I've been on here before, or on instagram : FMIC_FORESTER, but heres the link to my previous build Martin's Aspen white 04
Unfortunately i didn't update the end, but it ended up getting totaled after i hydro planed and spun and went head on into a Center concrete barrier.... its the car with the orange wheels.

I ended up buying back the car, and was able to pick up this forester from a friend of mine! and there are big plans in store for both of these cars!

The new forester looks pretty rad. It's a beast.
That Cross Sport bumper looks pretty sweet.

So a few things have happened recently, added JDM rear spats off my old car, lowered the car about half an inch, rear fenders rolled, and got my alignment done, with new 245/40 michelin pilot super sports

Looks like you're making your torque much later with the 20G, how is the drivability around town? Stop lights? Low speed, uphill, right turns in residential neighborhoods?

I am making later torque, but thats fine with me.
Driveablitly is great (with how this tune is). With the 6 speed matched to the turbo and top mount, the ratios are perfect to punch it and it reacts fast. I do a lot more highway then city, but its great for highway (aside from the issue of heat soak and air flow/ gains from a front mount.

Well big update on the car since i haven't posted in a while, car was running great, then i started to loose 3 QTs of oil with in 50!!! miles!!!

called blouch and they said my motor was trashed and that i had too much crank case pressure (which is not possible with the crawford AOS)

so i decided to take off my turbo and send it out to get rebuilt locally

Got it back after only $400 (new seals re balanced, and before tare down shaft play was with in spec!)

my car still smoked after re installing, so i drove it to my work, and decided to take my 6 speed out to swap my other 6 speed from my old car (which has 5000 miles on it) with my ACT 6 puck clutch into this one.

upon fixing everything and re installing the other trans it STILLL!!!! smoked! so I gave up because time is limited at my work for me to work on my personal vehicle. Car got towed to SUBA performance for a compression and leak down test.

results were 120 all around and 8-11% leak down which for a stock motor is great!

They did fix a couple boost leaks, and i found out my BOV decided to fail.... which is awesome....

so it needs a re tune....

Damn man that sucks, hopefully your motor is ok- what would cause the high pressure? Hopefully Ryan and Troy will get it sorted quickly!
