franz made me a new shorter pipe from scratch in a matter of minutes, and he gave me the fancy clamps to hold it right. we also put in oil temp, oil pressure, fuel pressure sensors to watch whats going and everything is good !

Nico, your car is just amazing. I may have to do this to my wagon eventually, as I no longer have much use for D/R 4WD since moving to the flatness of Florida.

Go figure I go reading this thread all the way up to the dyno point. Oh man! :banghead: Now I'll be in suspense! Not good! The last time I looked at this thread was way back in March. I didn't think it was going to happen. I'm an idiot! :lol:

i wish i could live where the weather was all ways warm so i can keep ym car on the road all year.

 

if you build it fast keep it awd, this car needs it for sure or else i would be not moving at all at the lights

i had to do it sold my legacy turbo just to get me moving on lol... but it will never be done i all ways like doing more and more. dyno sheet is on the way but it makes 320whp on 25psi fifty more then the 17psi road tune that was stupid all ready to be pumping out this car. maybe ill get a bigger turbo housing to make 400whp but its all ready to much to control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

so i got my STi coupler in

8142833916_72b9ece317_b.jpg

 

and i am building the air oil separator system witch i can put in soon once my plastic fittings come in

 

mann hummel provent 200 and i welded a nipple for the drain back on my stock dip stick tube. you need a one way valve and i got high temp o rings for the provent 200 lid.

 

the hose is a bmw 1990 325 6 hose witch has a step in it the same size as the provent 200.

8151960140_8bfe23c654_b.jpg

 

 

here we have it all put together and ready to rock.

made some brackets out of rod aluminum to hold it in place and its working perfect, oil is being seperated and dumped back the right way.

 

IMG_3756.jpg

 

also used my factory coolant reservoir and re mounted it to the strut top with a nice aluminum plate. the AWIC reservoir fits perfect in that little corner and its working perfect.

What is a provent 200?

 

This car is more set up right than many of the cars I've seen that came with that drive train from the factory! Lol. Great work on packaging it all together.

A Li'l off-Topic, but sharing some info about this:

I was shocked to find out that some rally cars use the 4X140 pattern...

 

Not exactly 4X140 but looks Close...

 

Even the "REAL" Subaru for Rally does come with a four Lug Setup

(The street versions are five lugs)

 

 

wrc2005_side689453.jpg

 

 

I have some photos: 4X114.3

 

 

2008subWRCconcept1_m_m.jpg

 

 

Closer View:

 

l.jpg

 

 

The Reason: Four Lugs are Faster to Change than Five Lugs.

 

Almost nobody noticed that difference between the Rally version and the street version of those cars.

 

Sorry for Hijack the Thread...

Kind Regards.
