These guys built me and Le Sabre's engines. They're a good shop and they do excellent work! However, they are in Winchester.

I guess I'll dyno the saab if I get a chance. I wonder if the aftermarket mufflers added any power.

Well most say 210-220 is "normal." I dynoed at 235 with a stock exhaust. Then the rear muffler rusted and I had a magnaflow welded on it it's place and replaced the center muffler with a resonator to make it a bit rumblier.

Gabe reminded me that this was Sat, and not Sun. So I won't be in New Mexico yet, but am coordinating canopy handoff b/c I still can't go.

Awwww man, I just realized I have a family thing I need to go to. If these guys weren't so far away I could swing both maybe, but it's just too far.

265 whp / 305 lb/ft. for the FXT
It appears my boost was way low (only about 16.5 psi peak dropping to 14 psi).
I had dropped it down months ago for our trips into the mountains and the cold winter months.
I think I'll crank it back up to the 19-20 psi it was originally tuned for. (Sadly I'll hit fuel-cut on cold days in 5th gear, so I like to be able to adjust.)

i had them do a dyno pull for each of the 3 si-drive modes in the legacy. results (cobb stage 1 and magnaflow catback):

-Intelligent mode: 178.93whp, 186.31 ft-lb torque
-Sport mode: 227.47whp, 262.25 ft-lb torque
-Sport Sharp mode: 240.21whp, 257.45 ft-lb torque

subaru (under)rates the 09 lgt at 243hp to the crank and 241 ft-lb torque stock in sport sharp mode.

not bad for an ots reflash. can't wait for stage 2.
