Im a traitor!

We did a thing. Wife needed a new car, so...

2017 Outback Limited 2.5i.

No plans for it, and no, its not replacing the forester. Just a replacement for the wifes old legacy. As you can see, mine is still there kicking at 205k miles. We just needed a new workhorse of a car that has space. Being a homeowner and relatively (keyword "relatively") handy with home repair and projects , im not particularly a fan of always loading up my SF5 with items, or the limited space of my smaller Legacy. While the Forester is still a wagon, its rather devoid of its original utility purpose, and since i frequent the Home Depot, we needed something that could keep up.
Looks beautiful! There is so much room in ever area of the interior!

Welp, i figured its time to up the power. Between my career, my home, my family and my tuning business, ive been quite a busy guy, but this week the following gets installed:

-ID1000 injectors
-Aeromotive FPR
-IAG fuel rails / 6an lines
-Custom reverse-feed alignment.

Purchased and coming soon

-FP (ball bearing) 78HTA beta turbo (65#/min flow)
-3-inch Turbo inlet

On pump, this turbo puyshes 420-450 whp, and on alky...well.... we will see. With a good clutch, it should not have an issue pushing 550-600 wheel absolutely maxed out.

As for now, may the lord have mercy on my very organic HD exedy clutch kit.

Thanks! Yeah, starting to kick it up with this thing.

New turbo:


Southbend clutch and Flywheel!


Obviously not all happening at once here, but the parts are in place. Been having a great time tuning the new injectors that drive like a breeze!
