PostSubject: Since I couldn't find the Scoobie section....   Tue Apr 05, 2011 5:06 pm

lol Smile

I figured I'd let you guys in on what I've been up to with the Scoob. Been having some fun. Smile Did normal maintenance stuff like the timing belt and gonna give it a quick tune up. I installed an STi uppipe and a big Perrin downpipe. Those REALLY woke it up and I could hear the turbo spoolin' and really caught the bug...

So I went and fired up an exhaust system for it to take full advantage of my boost greed. Wink Al gave me a hand installing my new 3 inch stainless catback yesterday and I figured I'd update ya a bit. Smile Here's a few pics and stuff...

A couple sneaky shots of my sweet Perrin DP...



And here's the box-inside-a-box-inside-a-box that it came in...


And the goodies IN the box!


And all the polished goody-ness!


And... HOLY MUFFLERS, Batman! Zoinks! No WONDER they are so quiet!


And installed...



Yeah, it's off in the cutouts to the insides, but I knew that going in. Common fitment issue with this brand, but it's stainless. Wink

And here's a couple daytime pics from today...



The tips hang pretty low, but that'll change tomorrow! I'm getting some nice looking dual tips that fit the cutout PERFECT installed! Smile

And here's the real deal. It sounds KILLER! Wear headphones or play through good speakers. You can't hear it at idle or most of it through laptops speakers. Through the phones though, it gives you a pretty accurate representation. I love it!

Sorry for the background noise, I live on a busy road. Boo.

And I gotta say, this was the EASIEST exhaust system I ever uninstalled/installed. I LOVE no over-the-axle pipes! We had the old exhaust off in like 10 minutes, and the new one took about 20 to install. Awesome.

So there's my multimedia overload for the day. Wink

I can't wait for my dynotune!

I will have some pics of the tips and maybe a new vid tomorrow.

Thanks! It's the CXRacing, aka eBay ezzozt, aka, Gimmick Motorsports, aka ________.... Smile

So it is the exhaust of many names, but it's a 321 Polished Stainless 3" intermediate with resonator to a Y, then 2.5" from the Y to the muffs. All straight through like a Magnaflow.

Sounds AWESOME! Smile

But drones like an SOB. Boo.



EDIT: Thanks Steve! Smile And the Marshmallow is going under the knife soon... Just as soon as I figure out what I want to do with it! Wink I drove it a few times last week...

Yeah, the downpipe was pretty easy. I could reach all 4 bolts no problem from the top. Smile

Yeah, some guys run shorter, poly hangers to tuck it up a bit. But I'm bringing it to my exhaust guy today to change out the tips to something more reasonable and he will put them where they are supposed to be in the cutouts. Wink

Not quite so simple. I'd need to change the intake and such, and then I'll STILL have a crappy Subaru factory turbo that's prone to oiling issues and early failure...

As it is, once I'm tuned, I should have about 270 or so to the wheels now! Very Happy

My plan for upgrade when the factory turbo lets go is a better Top Mount Intercooler and a BNR hybrid 18G or HR68TA turbo. That'll require some fuel system work, like a Walbro pump and 1000cc injectors and a beefier clutch. That will end up being cheaper (or about the same price) as the "upgrade" to the STi stuff and should get me closer to 350 at the wheels on pump gas without meth. But hopefully that's 3-4 years away yet...

OK, so the tips helped... a lot... but didn't cure it completely. But at least now it is tolerable. And they fit right. And look totally BADASS! Very Happy

So here's a couple shots of the in-progress adjustments. He cut the pipe right at the flange and added about an inch of pipe to the passenger side and about 3/4" to the driver's side.







Getting better...




And viola!


OH, and did tints happen the SAME day???? Smile




And with friends today...


I diggit. The tips look like they were MADE for the cutouts!

Dynotune at Kinetic TOMORROW!!!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOT!

PostSubject: Good news Bad news day at Kinetic Motor Works today   Sat Apr 09, 2011 9:21 pm

Hey Guys!

So, I had a dyno tune today at Kinetic. I couldn't wait! Even with the "heartbreaker dyno" they've got there. I was stoked for it!

I was actually running a bit late, but as soon as I got there, Mike had Steve swap out my plugs and upstream o2 and do an oil change so it was nice and fresh for the tune.

We strapped it to the rollers and Mike commenced his magic. Here are a few pics of it strapped down. I think he needs a few more fans, lol.













Mike did 7 or 8 pulls. All smiles. Things were going great. Boost was where he wanted it, A/F was killer, no knock or pulling timing. It was STRONG!

Here's a vid of one of the pulls. Be sure to wear headphones or listen through good speakers. Otherwise, it'll sound like crap, like it does on my lappy...


So how did it do?

Yup, almost 250hp/300tq! Woot! Not bad for just an uppipe and turboback! Sweet!

And for reference, stock STi's put down 225-235whp on this dyno.

So I was totally stoked. Mike started taking it for rides to do the datalogging and to "clean up" the road tune. He went out and back 3 or 4 times, and then was gone for like a half hour. That's where the story turns (potentially) bad. He came back and said he was seeing 12* of retard around 3 grand, so we started looking for what was causing the "false knock," hoping to find something obvious. Yeah. Not false. Hood open you can hear what sounds like a rod or bearing knock. EFF! It only happens revving past 3K rpms or so, but on both accel and decel. Idles quiet. Drives fine (aside from feeling all that timing being pulled out) and doesn't smoke and there are no CEL's. We were out of time (it was already 630pm) but he put it back up on the lift, and it looked like it could have been the passenger manifold heat shield rattling, but then it also seemed to be coming from inside the pan. We just didn't have the time to check it any further. My wife was going to kill me if I stayed out any later, as I told her it'd only be 3 or 4 hours and we were pushing 8! And Mike, Keith and Steve had to go home, too. So I still have some chasing to do to find what the problem is.

Totally sucks, too, because Mike said it was really flying on the drives. All kinds of torque down low. Just flew off the line. I'll have to take his word for it. I limped it home. Hopes and dreams crushed. Boo.

I'll keep you guys posted on what I find. If you have any suggestions, lemme hear 'em!

Metal particles. Probably a bearing. It will settle to the bottom, but once you stir it, it will look like metallic brown paint

It'd be a kind of cool picture if it wouldnt remind you of...ya know the reason you have to do a motor swap.

That really sucks though. Hope you get a replacement one quickly.

Thanks for the offer Doug. May take you up on it if I need the assist. Smile

But... I just got some potential good news. I will let you know what I find after I talk to SoA. They did the turbo under warranty less than 4K miles ago and elected to NOT replace the shortblock and oil cooler. That failure and the resulting oil contamination is likely what led to the bearing failure. Will let you know what they say.

I am sure you will save that oil (with no cross-contamination) in case it needs to be sent to a lab for a complete analysis.

These types of failure produce several peculiar artifacts (debris) that make their way into your oil system and sump.

You may also want to send some of your coolant out for a thorough analysis.

Every bus in our fleet at work gets this done regularly as a matter of procedure.

I am amazed (disgusted, really) that at least the oil cooler was not replaced, it can NOT be flushed well enough.

I was just reading that, I thought you just smoked the turbo on the dyno, damn! pays to read. I am buying the 08 legacy non turbo, its only 170hp but we'll boost her up just a bit. I got the auto also, I like to shift, but the auto is so relaxing to drive. The tiptronic is fun to. lol

I had to make nicey nice with the "Brotatoes" (bro-tay-toes) on the subaru sites, but it was worth it. Wink

Funny find on the Rex. No idea they existed. It did NOT come out of one of those. lol

LOL ^

I think Bill is getting way into the s00b forums, pretty soon we will see the RMW with a thule or yakima rack on the roof not carrying anything, a "shocker" or Pedobear sticker on the back window, super wide wheels with ribbons for tires, and the hood all sanded down so it rusts on purpose. Hella flush brosephs!

Haha, I saw a pretty cute girl driving a Cobalt SS w/New Hampshire plates a few weeks ago on 93N in Boston, there was a Pedobear sticker on the trunk! Laughing

Wouldn't it have been far less expensive to just use something like this for a tailpipe?



You'd certainly achieve the same overall look. Very Happy

UPDATE:

Should be starting to yank the motor tonight. Hopefully have it back together in a week or so. Will see.

Gonna paint the new motor Chevy orange, for reliability concerns, of course. Will try to remember to take pics. Smile
