Sounds like a lot of miles for such a new engine to me. Do you know anything about this Yoshio tune? I presume it's an import Jap engine from the description... That tune is probably making the most of their 100 octane fuel by the sounds of it so is no good for you, probably better off getting a lower mileage engine IMO...

Thanks for the feedback ricola ... it turns out that this engine (USDM) is currently in the car and has seen regular autocross use ...

On to the next lead !

Have a soft copy that I can send your way..

I Have a 02 WRX as my primary mover..

If your going to swap turbos let me know.. My scooby could use a little help..

ask him what yoshio is, ive never heard of it. stage 2 is just probably the designation for stock turbo, after market exhaust ect. if its like the stage 2 tuned ive seen, you are looking at around 300hp. it could even be 10-30 more depending on what that deadbolt turbo does extra.

also, get a compression check. tell him to take it to the dealer, and do a compression and leak down test, and thatyou would like him to provide all the numbers.

that will tell you just about everything you want to know.

deadbolt is a good company. the monster td04 is a stock turbo with like a clip, and a good port and polish, its not too much. i would say that you should be paying not much extra for that motor over a stock motor... maybe 2-300 more idunno. you should post up a link of the motor, we can have a look at it tell you what we think.

Some info..

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...11&postcount=8

quoted.. Technically speaking, and this perhaps where I get my hackles up,
Yoshio is a tuner using Tectom's programming product. I think
that everyone equates Yoshio (the tuner) to the equipment
manufacturer (Tectom) because he is currently the only person
offering the service. It would be the same as saying Shiv is
ECUTEK, which of course is not the case

If there is a beef about the approach to the ECU remapping then
it should be directed at Tectom, not Yoshio. He is taking grief for
going out and bringing in a service not previously offered by
any North American tuner shop, and a lot of that grief is not
substantiated and now is being compared to a product that has
not been released.



Its a start
alex

Thanks for the offer LOAF ... I'll keep it in mind, just have to get the motor first .

Scoobytuner .. I'm having an email conversation with the seller, no links to the motor. I'll get the #'s and post them.

Yoshio is the owner of http://www.japanese-auto.com/ here in Toronto.

Sandeep, I'm guessing you got your lead through the Toronto Subaru Club ?

Who is the guy selling it ?
There is a strong Yoshio following at the club (even more at SPDA), but there is also a group that is not a big fan (isn't that always the case)...

He tunes the car by reflashing the ECU.

Rob.

I've got a question. I've heard it said here and there, but I want to know...

What exactly is the differance between an open and closed deck block? Pictures would be a Big help.

Closed decks are stronger, but what else?

In the Dec. 2005 issue of Hot VW's , there is a spread on an orange KG vert that is running a Subaru WRX engine . It does't get into the conversion too much , but the install is very clean . I am in the state of planning my next beetle , and originally I was going to install a big horsepower type IV , but after seeing this car , and seeing the amount of power available from a stock Subaru engine , I think I am going to go this route instead . I was already planning on having a custom tube chassis floorpan constructed , so this will help a lot in the install . BTW , in the same issue , if anybody knows what the name of the rims on the Doug Hartman chopped 74 on page 69 , please let me know . They look very similar to Torque Thrusts , but slightly different . Axl .
