Bought a set of id1000cc injectors going to be going e85 next weekend. Plan on having 2 maps one aggresive e85 for summer and one 93oct for winter and vacation/roadtrips when e85 is not available. Im pretty excited and as far as i know i will be the first SH forester on corn lol.

Purchased a new green gmc flex fuel badge for the back of the xt. Also thinking of swapping gas caps from my chevy work van that is a flex fuel vehicle but not sure if they are interchangable. It fits but i dont want any evap codes so i will think about it.

Pretty excited finally got my id1000cc in and tuned. First tune was for 93oct which is pretty tame for long trips and the winter 19psi tapering to who cares lol. Second tune is e85 and wholy crap 24psi tapering to 19psi people say the vf52 turns into a hair dryer after 23psi but my power curve says other wise. I will post up quarter mile results next weekend. My tuners butt dyno says we picked up 50whp and 70wtq but i dont really trust it for accuracy. I will be going for a dyno pull in the next couple weeks to see the real results.

Do you have the swift springs installed? If so, can you post a pic? Considering spring upgrade

yes i do my avitar and thumbnails are with the swift springs. I actually like them for everyday driving in upstate ny. I have been running them for about a year on stock shocks with no issues.

Have you upgraded the brakes yet? I'm looking for pads and ss lines but it seems they changed them from 2010 to 2011. Didn't know if you tried anything? Also, you get it on a dyne yet? Numbers?

sweeeet! gotta love the 4eat being able to take some abuse. try to get some videos!

Also - what kind of power are you seeing with the vf52? i know it's a legacy gt style fitment compressor housing which sucks for me. my friend with a 11 wrx with intake, turboback, uppipe w/ ewg, and a boost controller made like 370 on it at 19psi. with stock fuel.

so i'm really curious to see what you're making at 24psi with fuel done + e85

im going to take a trip to nj with my tuner for a dyno tuning session next month hes going to get me on the dyno for a couple pulls for free. I dont tune on them my tuner says he gets better reliability road tuning because you can never simulate the road 100% but i am going to do some pulls just to see.
