A nice feature about the SVX on the speed channel
Turbo SVX shakedown run
My T3/T04E SVX @3.5lbs of Boost goes
to the track for the first time, 1.92 60' and good down low, but running
rediculously rich up top (10.4:1 AFR :/). Also missed 4th gear, but with
some tuning and 8lbs of Boost 13's
will not be a problem :)
9-second plumbers van vs 8-second WRX
Tony Rigoli Performance Subaru WRX racing at Heathcote Park. This car still
retains an AWD system but is using an automatic transmission vs one wild
Mitsubishi Van. The van is running a Nitrous assisted small bock V8 Chev engine.
Turbo 5spd Subaru SVX at the track
Phil's turbo SVX 5spd running only 3.5
lbs of Boost, turning pretty decent
14.5 second tmes. Keep in mind most SVXs run mid to high 15s, or low 16s!
They were NOT built for the track, they were designed as highway bruisers,
NOT street racers. :) So knocking a full 1.5-2 seconds of the stock time
is pretty good. :)

Impreza 3.0R.... Ignition...
My Impreza 3.0R running finally, first fired up on sunday the 17th of
october 2010 at 0945... A lot of time has gone into this, and this car has
not been driven in 3 years!
Update here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YAegYNB6z7o
Engine: 2006 EZ30R (3.0l H6, DOHC, VVT, VVL)
ECU: Link G4 Xtreme
Vehicle: 1997 Impreza HX20-S (or 3.0R, depending on how you want to look at
The base map is probably going to be made available at some poitn for
people wanting to make this swap themselves.
There is a fair bit of 'tidying up' to do before its ready, the alternator
does not charge as the Link cannot provide the regulation signal to it, the
power steering explodes the moment it is loaded up, and the idle
configuration is all wrong as you can hear... Oh, and it probably needs an
interior, yay, more wiring!
