I wonder when deatschwerks will finally release side feed 1000's for forester/legacy/04-06 sti people.

Supposed to have come out in June last I heard, and still no cigar.

Where's the side feed love? lol

How does the OBXT ride compare to the FXT/LGT? I rented one and drove it around Washington and Oregon for a month but it was a non turbo OB. The interior was quite nice.
The LegGT and OBXT are the same platform (Legac, not Imprezza like the FXT is). They handle much bigger "car like" than my FXT and they are quite a bit heavier. I have an upgraded suspension on the LegGT and it handles well. The OB is bone stock and handles more SUVish because it rides on bloated all seasons and sits higher on the stock OB suspension. I like the LegGT and OBXT because the hatch has more room than my FXT. But these are both family wagons so I'm not too concerned with maxing out performance. Hell, I have 4 cars and commute 4 miles each way a day.

Deatschwerks will make some larger side feeds for shops but they aren't selling them openly. My 06 STI has some side feeds from them that flow around 1175 so I can consider running E85.
You work at a shop don't you, call them. If not PM me.

Interesting, didn't know that. I'll definitely shoot em an email then. Around here everyone either uses top feeds or their 850's, or a whole 'nother brand altogether.

thanx for the heads up man
