2001 Forester 4EAT
^- Makes sense. He doesn't need it to hit his goals nor does he need the further risk of breakin' something.
Just had this discussion at the tune site this weekend; The thing about e85 is that it can push that extra power "safer" than gas. In the sense that 300 HP car on e85 would be safer than a 300HP car on gas, and a 340HP e85 would have similar wear as a 300hp gas. I'd expect a drive train failure first.I would think E85 is going to be pushing the block to it's limits. (We'll find out when nate ruins his lol). You should definitely be around 12.5 or less on regular gas I would think. Ray expects my 18G to put me into the 12's easily. You'd probably be in the 11's with E85 until something breaks that is. lol. I love what's going on here and can't wait to see the outcome.
Spec_bg, I fixed the trans issue by adjusting the clutch pedal travel, shortly after that I hit the 1/4 mile with over ten passes and was able to engage 2nd without a problem, shifted at a high 6K rpm and it engaged smoothly no binding (vid here), I just need to get used to the high clutch pedal location is starting to get on my nerves.i thought you had some transmission issues a few weeks ago. i havent been on the forums as much lately. what did you do to fix it. sorry off topic.
i hope your ready for a drastic sound change with that elh. hopefully your catback will help it sound better than the wrx i heard with ewg and elh. he had a n1 style catback, worst subaru ive ever heard, it was loud like honda loud
HA, but you're still def at a net loss in weight considering the OEM battery weight.Back to turbo swap is relocating the light weight Odyssey battery to the spare tire well, got a Stinger 4ga power amplifier kit, 18ft (+), 2 ft (-), 20ft of 4ga is heavy 3.4 lb, fuuukccc so much for light battery savings haha.
I think I've seen maybe 1 or 2 E85 stations around town. There are not enough of them around to make the swap IMO.Also, can't deal with range anxiety closest gas station is 20 miles away and the next 80 miles, or be subject to E85 concentration inconsistencies pump to pump. And transmission is stock with 100K miles, my point is if I am going to E85 I have to see a noticeable performance difference, otherwise not worth the trouble.
E85 is simply too much hassle and would just add even more complexity to my build.
Not sure if it will work for us, but a friend of mine (Uncle Scotty on NASIOC) relocated his to u der the passenger seat. Less wiring and more central weight.is relocating the light weight Odyssey battery to the spare tire well, got a Stinger 4ga power amplifier kit, 18ft (+), 2 ft (-), 20ft of 4ga is heavy 3.4 lb, fuuukccc so much for light battery savings haha.
That's my issue as well.I think I've seen maybe 1 or 2 E85 stations around town. There are not enough of them around to make the swap IMO.
Yes, it came from this.What kind of bracket do you have on there after you removed the IWG, looks custom.
Simply put to make more power, plenty of info on why ELHs are superior and come standard in some JDM Subaru's. Although I must admit I am concerned about loss of low end torque, the Kinugawa uppipe (non-EWG 3-bolt) that came with the ELH is huge (51.5mm ID) vs a high-flow Grimmspeed EWG 2-bolt Uppipe (45mm ID), but is a perfect match for the TD06SL2 turbine housing (50mm ID).Hey Bestial, we have nearly the same car, actually all three of us have the same car. What was the point of going with the aftermarket headers?
