James brought his 2018 Subaru WRX in for his next round of modifications!
Up first in the shop, John removed the factory plastic intake manifold and replaced it with a more Subaru aesthetically appropriate wrinkle red powder-coated forward-facing BRZ intake manifold, beautifully packaged by I Build Racecars, complete with TGV deletes, topped off with a front-mount intercooler system from Extreme Turbo Systems featuring that unmistakable cold side titanium charge pipe, all complimenting the existing modifications perfectly, including a down-pipe and SF air-intake system from COBB Tuning, a Street Series air/oil separator from IAG Performance, and a 3-port electronic boost control solenoid kit from GrimmSpeed.
With the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, Matt strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom Pro Tune via COBB Tuning‘s Accessport. With 93 octane in the tank, and the factory turbocharger delivering 21psi, Vlad increased the FA20DIT’s output to a solid 338.93awhp & 342.05lbft! Great improvements both in terms of performance and under-hood aesthetics as well!
