      The stock suspension was already far better than those stock no season tires were. If you're really trying to push the car through freeway entrance/exit ramps at 70+ mph I'm not surprised you're...

      I'm not sure about the manual MK7 R but the DSG has a taller 6th. 60mph in 6th on the MK7 DSG is 2600rpms vs 3000rpms on the MK6 manual so there's a small but noticeable drop.

      With final drive...

      That's not true. The most basic Subaru's have at least a center dif that can send up to 80% power to the axle with the most traction. The more sophisticated models have true front, center and rear...

      It doesn't say the car is numbered. It says the car is delivered with an exclusive numbered accessories kit.

      Stock the MK6 R really lacked, no doubt. Proper summer tires and a haldex controller are needed for this car to shine. I thought the same way you did (after driving both) and those two items changed...

      If you live in an area where it gets colder (40 degrees F or less) it's only a matter of time before you start to slip if you are 1+ or higher. Most the people reporting issues have been 2/2+, as I...

      It's not power, it's torque. I don't have a UM tune or graph handy but I do recall them peaking around 400 ft lbs. That's more than the TTRS stock.


      Good find. I suppose that's about as close to...

      I don't keep up with the threads like I used to but I remember at least one person with a slipping RSR (TTRS) clutch at stage 2/2+. The specifics of mileage and such escape me at the moment. On the...

      Have you looked at the Sachs Racing(SRE) DMF setup? I have two summers worth of stg2+ 100 octane on it and it's still holding strong, even in the cold temps we have now. While I can't say...

      Finally something that doesn't require those nutserts! Can the brace be installed with the back seats up? Hard to tell if it's possible from the pics.

      Keep in mind wheels are unsprung weight that is also rotating. Huge difference compared to static weight.

      The OE tire size for 19 inch wheels is 235/35. Finding a tire with a 91 load rating at that size is pretty easy. 225/35 has less sidewall which is most likely why the load ratings are lower.

      You sure about that? I'd bet dollars you've impacted the amount of air that flows through those stacked heat exchangers now. The mesh might look relatively open to you but it takes very little to...

      Have you ever pulled the small screen out of any newer sink or shower head to increase the flow, ie remove the restriction? In essence you just did the opposite.

      What's your mileage been on those sets? I got 12k on my 5Ps. Great tire but poor life.

      I'm guessing your intake is throwing your MAF off. A vcds log would verify. That dyno plot looks just like others that had the same issue.

      Plenty of BBK options out there that use the same diameter rotor we have or smaller but thicker. Typically though the smaller in diameter and thicker they get the more money you are spending.

      I highly doubt it was done for cooling purposes. If they were that concerned with heat they'd use ducts to move the air out. In my opinion it's done that way more to prevent water related issues than...
