    So about half way done on the cosmetics. New exhaust fitted and tune scheduled soon. Suspension going in on Tuesday but it starting to come together. My little Subbie project, heaps of fun.

    Looking good mate! How much is exhaust costing? Any chance of posting video once new exhaust is fitted?

    Soon as I have the tune done I will post a video. The exhaust is already fitted. Total cost was 2090 for the full turbo back Invidia Q300 system,

    Full dyno, as for warranty, only if the modification directly relates to the failed part. End of the day, I have the original exhaust and to load the stock ECU map is a 15 minute job. Any issues I can return the car to stock and call Subaru after :)

    Just the exhaust has given an extra 16kw. But the tune is a bit of a pain, Subaru really went all out to do the worst ECU mapping they could possibly have managed to do. Been in once already and we had to go back to scratch. Will go back for a few days week following next. I have the custom X-Series coil overs being done this week with a custom suspension setup. Currently the rebound is bloody dangerous, almost lost the back on multiple occasions from hitting undulations in the road

    You already been on dyno after exhaust install? So its just a new map in the stock ECU?

    I agree re the rebound, it is dangerous. However I've only felt it on 1 or 2 particular roads.

    Yes, we tried a mapping with Tony, he had a hard time and he wasn't well either, but it was a fail. To give you an idea........Subaru have 9 different mappings depending on how hard you hit the pedal, what mode you in etc. Depending on that the fuel ratios change. It's mental. I find it bad almost everywhere, it's not bad in you dump it into a corner, but any changes in the road and the slightest bump sends into "Where the hell are we going to end up" mode. Can't wait for the suspension to be done.

    Just another short cut from Subaru, it has Bilsen suspension but they did bugger all work on the valve settings.

    Yeah, would be nice if we could adjust recoil like on coilovers.

    I'm over the shithouse sound quality, think that will be the next thing i'll do. Nice amp, speakers and 10" sub under the floor in the boot, then the exhaust and maybe tune, depending on how you go ;)

    Have you watched this online regarding upgrading exhaust?

    Guess because you went turbo back might be different scenario.

    Yeah I saw that before. One I won't go near MRT, two they make a big deal over an exhaust they manufactured. Two why on earth would you fit an exhaust to have it sound like the stock exhaust, just why. Lol. The drone isn't anything to worry about, I have no issues with it. As for sounds, done that too. Replace the front splits with Morel splits, fusion 4 channel amp, 150rms per channel. Morel component speakers in the rear, 2 x 12" Alpine blue subs in a removable custom box running off a 2 channel pioneer 750rms per channel amp. Had the doors sound deafened too, makes a big different to road noise too. Also the amp has a sub level controller so you don't have to keep going into the radio setup to turns the subs up and down, also the gain is fully adjustable.

    So interesting weekend. The entire eye sight system, cruising control, sports mode lit up like a Xmas tree in the car. Took it to Subaru and it was due to the ECU realising there was no longer a Cat converter LOL. They said it's cause of the exhaust, fair enough, and every time they reset it the error pops up again. Took it to Tony and he set the ECU to ignore :) sorted :)

    So now this week, car get coil overs installed and custom suspension setup, next Monday full tune and dyno. Might do the alloys Saturday morning, time pending and if I can be bothered to get out of bed early.
