2005 Subaru WRX Wagon 0-60 Run
0-60 run in my stock 05 Subaru WRX wagon. I estimate between 5.5 and 6 sec. Not bad for a wagon, considering it was a hot day and I forgot to turn off the A/C.

Finding a boost leak
Using an automotive tire pump to find a Boost leak!
Car hasn't been running well at light throttle and cruising, so I capped off both ends (one at the turbo inlet & the other just before the throttle body) and used a tire valve stem as the entry point for the pressurized air.

Why do I know about this?
I'm tired of being the one knowing all the weird crap. If everyone knows it, it won't be weird anymore. It will be commonplace. By the time I'm done sealing up all of my own Boost leaks, all of you will also be experts as well. I'm sure most of you would teach me something, too... but you subscribed, so here it comes... something I learned in my travels...
Also, thanks Ilya M. I've only heard about it twice in my life. It worked great for the one time I've ever needed it, and I'm a huge fan.
Boost Leak Testing 201: Using the tool.
This is the second part of the Boost leak testing series. In this video, several examples of possible leaks you might find are exhibited, as well as suggested fixes. Hopefully this video helps turbo cars around the world to be healthier and more powerful.

Mom's reaction to launching a 2013 Subaru STi
So I picked up my mom from the airport the other day.. Drove home very conservatively, in Intelligent mode the whole time, never going over 2 psi of Boost. When we were close to home she says to me, "meh this car isn't nearly as fast as I thought." I said nothing. Today, I showed her how 'not fast' the car really is.
