    Allot better flow and the two piece that cones off the legacy I believe is the easiest mod since it bolts to your tgv housings. The one 2.5i piece requires fuel rails spacers and phenolic spacers to clear the avcs sensors.

    Larger plenum better matched runner flow per cylinder and supposedly increase in Tourque and no thru out the power band.

    Things still will not bolt up all the same on the top portion. Don't make it sound too easy.

    It's like a 7-8/10 project for those super comfy with their car.

    Yeah I only have exp with my 2.5i long runner mani. Do yuou have to slot the na manifold to bolt to the TGV housings? I've seen people weld them to TGV as well and of course the FMIC piping has to be modded and allot of shaving can be done to make the manifold look better then stock.

    I am referring to the fact that it's different years, NA vs. Turbo, different sensors and bolt locations for them, etc.

    How wild is OP going deleting things, moving things, tucking and hiding. Making new brackets to fit, etc.

    I mean a quick google will bring up a few in depth threads as well.

    Yes I see what your saying but if I recall correctly Batmobile is pretty mechanically inclined. I also don't believe he would just blindly jump in to doing the mod with out researching the process first.

    Ummmm.....no thanks. I'd like to keep this as simple as reasonably possible.

    I'm pretty handy, but I have also grown tired of Frankenstein'ed projects. I don't want to make anything more complicated than it needs to be. I've got a child coming in May and my wife is already getting pissed (after she said she wouldn't, what a surprise) about how much the Subaru is going to cost. The crap I had to deal with this weekend nearly made me put it up for sale.

    Well I ran E85 for about 4 years. There are a few ways to make sure you dont have failures.
    1) test the e85 at the beginning of the year.
    2) clean your injectors every year you store it
    3) get fuel from the same place every time you fill up (there was a shell that had pretty much e90 all throughout the summer and about e80 in the winter blend)
    4) get an e85 readout gauge
    5) have the proper fail safes in the ecu to cut ignition and or fuel

    When I did travel or go further than I planned, I filled up 2 5 gallon tanks and strapped them in the trunk. This way I knew the gas I put in was from the same station I tested.

    With the proper flex setup, you can put regular pump gas in and shouldnt have any issues when traveling further than you can take fuel with you.

    With e85 issues, most of the old tanks used to be diesel fuel. They would drain them and put in e85. If you got the bottom of the barrel, you started pumping some diesel. Also, e85 is hydroscopic and attracts water. If the tanks are not used often, they start to rust inside and this is where you see debris getting into the tank. This is why you want to find a station that has high traffic so the fuel isnt sitting for a long time. You should have a 6 micron filter in your car with any aftermarket setup with dual pumps, injectors etc... For $80 you save the $1000 injectors from getting destroyed with debris.
