nice it must be nice to take off whithout the front wheels squeeling at you.
well I got around to launching the car today....holy crap What A Difference, felt like my seat back was going to break :woohoo:
no tire squeal or any of other BS the thing used to do it just jumped up and WENT
hopefully I will be at the track Wednesday and I'll see how much the 60' improves :rock:
Did I just smoke crack or does that say a 1.657 sec 60 foot time and 3.323 second 0-60? Is this for real? With an auto box?
That 0-60 time is absolutely insane. Where did you get your torque converter from and what is the stall speed? Just out of curiosity, what will your car do for 0-60 from a roll?
I'm going to have to do this someday, the 4eat should have always been VTD. BTW those are incredible times, I've been waiting for someone to show what an auto forester could do!Did I just smoke crack or does that say a 1.657 sec 60 foot time and 3.323 second 0-60? Is this for real? With an auto box?
no just the fix and the VTDdo you have a slip from the track, or just the Gtech? Very nice numbers I so need to get my TC and valve body done... and maybe this swap while it's out. By the way when you had this all apart did you do all new clutches as well?
sorta ..the wrx 4EAT is not the 'direct control' system like the forester AFAIKI have a question couldn't you just take a WRX 4EAT and swap it in and have the same thing?
I don't think your smelling clutches from inside your 4EAT it doesn't work like that...check your fluid if it's burnt looking/smelling then you've got problemsthat's good to hear that the stock clutches are holding up. I'm guessing you had the VB done early on before power got to high? I'm a little worried about mine as after the dyno session I could smell them a bit. I really need to send in my VB, I just can't seem to find the time to be without the car for a week.
and just to give everyone an idea of what this will do for well modified FXT, here's how much my 60' improved with just this modificationThis mod is on my to-do list. My car is tuned for some pretty aggressive acceleration, and with the STI steering rack thrown in the mad torque steer gets tiresome, especially on rougher roads (of which we have many). I've actually scared myself a few times while getting used to wrestling with the steering wheel.
Excellent work on putting the parts list together! Good thing my husband works in the parts dept. at the local Subaru dealer... :biggrin:
I've also backed up the parts list and .pdf file by attaching them to the initial post, in case the links go down.
I've been pondering what to say about this post for some time trying to figure out what you weren't seeing :huh:Plead Can you get a full parts list with the part numbers together for this. I couldn't figure out the matrix that Andy posted to figure out his numbers. Since you have the mad hook ups to the parts guy I would guess you could post a clear and easy to follow list. No offence Andy.. :biggrin:
Edit: never mind I just noticed there is now a parts list that I hadn't seen previously. Sorry.
What I AM seeing is an opportunity to take all the part numbers, put together a wholesale package price for interested parties, and fill the needs. I'll be all over it Monday morning after I get finished with my Monday morning chore list and a few other things at work.I've been pondering what to say about this post for some time trying to figure out what you weren't seeing :huh:
