ALTA R53 Side Draft Intercooler Dyno Proven

As promised here is our data!  Sorry if the formating is a little confusing. Good to hear from Matt, we havne’t heard from you lately. Must be all those MC2 articles! First off, i know understand why there are lots of doubters out there. It could be because our dyno graph wasn’t on our site.

EVO X Intercooler Prototype Build, Test & Tune

Like we weren’t going to make a new intercooler for the X. For one, the stock one is pretty restrictive, and two, in order for the EVO to compete with the STI in our EVO vs. STI project it really needed one!  Besides the gains we saw there is one very important thing we found, which will be a Huge concern to all X owners after they find this same thing out.

The Great Subaru Intercooler Test

The Great Subaru Intercooler Test Its intercooler testing time.  After a semi cold winter, it was a great time to do some long awaited intercooler testing.  Because our 08 STI has become the mule for testing of other parts, its great for testing intercoolers.  We have great results from previous dyno runs to back up the consistency of the power (or lack thereof with stock intercooler).  Like other dyno sessions, we started with the same map and same dyno setup, [...Continue Reading...]

EVO X Prototype Turboback Exhaust Build

We have had the X for a few weeks, and in that amount of time, we have dynoed the car in stock form, and dynoed the car with a custom hardwired Unichip. Both have proven to show very good HP numbers, and this is with the stock exhaust, intake and other parts!  Like our other builds we have done, we are building the parts for this car in the direction that we expect most customers to build their car.  So [...Continue Reading...]

PERRIN Turbo Inlet Hose Evolution

The PERRIN turbo inlet hose has been one of our best selling, long standing products for many years. Since the beginning, we have made our part different than the rest in that we didn’t just make a copy of the OEM part.  We had something different in mind to make the installation of this go much easier, and also out perform other turbo inlet hoses offered by our competition. HISTORY LESSON When we got the WRX and started making parts [...Continue Reading...]

PERRIN T31 Rotated Turbo kit vs. T3 Rotated Turbo Kit

This is an Nasioc Post we made regarding our older T31 turbo kits and changes we made to make the kit better. FITTMENT ISSUES First off fitment issues with the PERRIN turbo kit, are not common. While we have had issues time to time, we have taken care of those who had them.  I should say we have taken care of those who have called us and explained their problem.  There are a lot of our kits out there, and [...Continue Reading...]
