    Looks good man! I had a hard time finding a place for mine. I also can’t wait to see those gauges on the Evo.

    Downpipe and Res Delete Installed. Updated Tune via UM and a couple more pounds of boost. Decent.

    Don't want to spend the $$ for all the supporting mods (Flex Fuel kit, injectors, fuel pump) for E85. :pout:

    I get that, but E85 will increase the longevity of the motor. Something to consider.

    I'm cheap (as you know) and don't drive the STi enough to justify E85. She sits a good bit.

    Is there some truth or testing on this? I’ve never heard that claim

    Yes, specifically with Subarus and the EJ20/25.
    Ethanol burns cooler, so assuming you’re running it at similar power levels as you would on pump gas, you’re less likely to bombard Cylinder 4 with excessive heat.

    Informative article.

    Interesting read. I was aware of the ringland failure issue, but never saw anything about e85.
