    A buddy of mine just put a gt30r on his 05 legacy gt. I had the privilege of being there yesterday afternoon for the dyno tuning. Stock the legacy is putting down about 170 awhp. At 10 psi we put down 316, and at 18psi we put down 362. The car could EASILY be over 400, but on 91 octane and the stock clutch this is plenty lol. Next up will be a new clutch and an e85 conversion.

    Thanks for posting the info, 1EightT. The car rocks, and I can't make enough excuses for running to the grocery store, Lowes, walmart, etc. Once the thing spools up you can't help but smile. Big.

    I'm the guy on the far right in the picture above. :) Used to really love modding cars, but not having done so for 6 or 7 years, I'd forgotten how much of a pain in the ass it can be.

    Does he plan to run more than 350whp when you switch over? Nice car.

    I guess the 5 speed transmissions have issues once you get into the 400 range, so at that point some more expense would be involved. I don't know if he is wanting to go that far or not at this point.

    I think I can probably squeak 375 awhp out if we do e85. I'm just not looking forward to the additional expense of the clutch & flywheel.

    The motor could easily make 400 awhp on e85 if I had enough injector, but the 816cc parts are not going to be enough. And swapping from side feed to top feed is a whole 'nother expense. TGV housings, fuel rails, injectors, etc.

    HAI nick! :)

    I'd have to be pushing it through corners to experience oversteer. I don't do that.

    That's pretty low, normally it's about 190-200 stock.
    That thing should move though, mine is stage 2, so around 240whp and it's damn quick for a station wagon.

    The dyno we tuned on reads right around 170 awhp for a fully stock LGT.

    On the AWD dynojet at a local shop, I'm betting the corrected number would have been 400-425 awhp. Next time there's a dyno day at that shop I'm going to test my theory.

    And yes - it does get up and move pretty well. [​IMG]

    What are you using for your boost control solution?

    Does the owner live in the Springs? Or just down here for the tune? I'll have to keep an eye out for it on the streets. Nice numbers.

    What I've used since the 90s - a hallman manual boost controller. Not the same part since the 90s, but I've used hallman MBCs on all of my turbo cars.

    Mechanical or electronic? I've not had much luck with the mechanical ones, they keep trying to give me maximum boost regardless of whether I really need it or not.

    hallmans are mechanical boost controllers.

    yours must not be functioning right if they are essentially providing no boost control. u using a hardware store bleeder valve?

    Read what you quoted. "hallman manual boost controller". If you have issues with a manual/"mechanical" there is probably an installation problem.

    I was on COSR.com and Importracer.net long ago. I used to work with Adam and Jonathan (JCESL2). My SN was Slider on both

    I think we ran into each once or twice at Bandimere, but that'd be it.
