Upsolute chip tuning did the tune out of austria, but the guy who pulled the chip out and reflashed it through them runs a european car tuning shop. Only works on porsche, audi vw, ferrari etc...

Can't remember his name. That was back in 2006.

Default Something for you guys to drool over.....

Took out the F100 today cause it has to go in the shop for some work. Gave it a quick clean and shine before taking it in.

Sorry this isn't quite subaru related but it deals with the stuff in my garage.

The f100 got a tune up and is now running like a top once again. The carb needed rebuilding and some valve adjustments. I drove it to work today and the power steering pump gave out(well it was the part attached to the steering rack not pump itself. So thats getting replaced. While its in the shop a couple days I figured id have the rear differential gear size changed out. It was getting horrible city mileage cause I have to floor it from stop lights which causes it to sip a little too much fuel(Is 7.5mpg really all that bad?). The diff was way too tall for this engine(2.50:1), but it was free after all.

The shop is changing it out to a conservative 3.25:1 ratio with an eaton limited slip thrown in as well. That should give me better city mileage and quite a bit more pep and grip for that 7.5L ford engine.

Sorry for buying you guys with non subaru news.

No worries. I enjoy reading about other people's classic cars, hot rods, etc. That F100 is absolutely beautiful!

Wow i went down that path with the walbro the fitment wasnt good even after i altered it with a dremel. I would just go with the dw65c direct drop in from dietchwerks.

I second the DW65. Easy install. I just love hearing the whirring sound the pump makes right before firing the xt up. But of course with all your sound proofing you might not hear it.

Yes i neverliked the fitment of the walbro you have to smash it in there and crush the sock and make sure you double up on the o rings. I hated it so much i bought a new pump housing and the dw65c. I always had a problem with it bleeding the pressure and taking a while on cold sarts to build pressure. There are alot of write ups on the install and alot of people have good luck with it just take your time.

I got bored this morning and decided to do a bit of online shopping. Picked up a Go Faster Bits Hybrid BPV.



You can vary this hybrid valve from all internal to all atmospheric or anywhere inbetween. Should be fun and hold up to higher pressures when the new turbo arrives.
Looks pretty high quality and Marty and Moog seem to like it on the SH from Mighty Car mods.

Just got the f100 back. Power steering is working great the new gearing and limited slip locker is perfect! I can drift it around corners with a quick touch of throttle now and still get decent gas milage. Gotta enjoy 440ft-lbs in a truck the size of a ford ranger with nothing in the bed. Hehe...

Well, I put on the GFB Hybrid Response Valve today and did a few videos to show you guys what it sounds like. (I actually did another one sitting still before it rained but my wife hit the record button at the wrong time and didn't actually record anything. I'll do another one another day to show you what it sounds like sitting still.

This valve is so easy to adjust from full recirc to full atmospheric it rediculous. You just reach in and twist the head and boom it's on a different setting! I love it.

When you first install it you have to adjust the spring for how quick it releases with the provided Hex key/allen wrench. It's super easy. Just warm up the car and then hit the gas and let it come back to idle. If it drops below normal idle it needs to be tightened. I had to put mine down really far from the stock setting.

Videos:
The first one is on half recirc and half atmospheric which is where I'm gonig to leave it I think. At full atmospheric its really loud.




Video 2 is on full atmos:

Had to do this one in Photobucket cause Youtube didn't like it for some reason.
