20.5 psi right now. I'm starting to feel 4wheel slippage on dry roads at full throttle 2nd gear.

I got that intercooler bracket in. It actually goes to the bolt on top of the transmission that holds the mount for the oemheat shield. Here's a pic



I also modified my oem splitter to better fit the new intercooler. Its not absolutely air tight bit provides cooling to the entire intercooler.



With both sides of the intercooler mounted tight it transmits a beautiful intake sound into the cockpit. It sounds like a beast!

So envious. I can only imagine what E85 would do.

Now that you make more power do you think the engine is louder than when you had the STi exhaust?

The engine itself is much louder with that intercooler. Overall loudness of the car is quieter than with the sti exhaust. You only hear the engine when you put your foot into it. Its a beautiful sound though. Ill try and get some video posted up.

Tapering? Doesnt happen....


Lol


Ive got it going down just slightly to because I dont want too much there but its not by much. Its actually about 18psi. Im still only at 55% wastegate duty.

When I was tuning on the original tune getting the injectors dialed in the wdc was still set for the TD04 @ 95%. I saw a few 28psi spikes upon quick throttle application.

Ray has been busy so the tunes im playing with are from what im experimenting with. I just upped the timing this morning. Still no knock. So things are good.

Just be careful not to push the stock internals to far on that 93oct i bet its a blast to drive. 18psi at redline sounds pretty good though my friend runs about 20psi at redline in his built sti after peaking to 26psi just to be safe,and hes on e85 with cp pistons. Can you do me a favor can you post up a virtual dyno graph in 2nd gear so i can see it ,for some reason mine wont look rite almost as if its backward just want to see if its a 09+ auto thing.

Its the Brad barnhill virtual dyno i dont know how to link it but if you search it comes rite up. Then save it to your desktop and it has our car stored in there with the weight already set all you have to do is put in your body weight, the gear of the log and upload the log itself and it gives you your whp and wtq.
