N/A subarus really benefit from getting away from SRI, really helps the low end torque, at least in the intakes we have produced so far.

Hey, I know that guy!

Put your location in your profile so it shows up under your name so the locals will get to know you. Good to see you over here on the dark side. And yeah, don't disturb the ancient threads or they will haunt you in your sleep...

I'll cast my vote for placebo as well. Every time I add something to the car I feeeeeel like it feels better. Bottom line though is that I can count the list of items that actually made a real noticeable difference on one hand... turbo, tires, coilover... most things make nearly no discernable difference, the difference comes as a sum of many little improvements.
