I am pretty sure internal wastegates aren't designed to be taken apart, so the only way to get a lower boost spring would be to do something sketchy and custom like in the below video, or to find a...

A few pics of my headlights. As you can see, there isn't light scatter or anything, and they produce a solid cut off line, so the "cheap and terrible" projectors seem to work well. The second pic was...

For the longest time I have been considering getting a boost controller, so I can do boost by gear and limit top end boost to not over-boost the motor. The main thing that was holding me back was...

I run a full synthetic 5w30 from AMSOIL. Subaru recommends 5w30 for their turbocharged cars. Is this because 5w30 meets the tolerances, which they increased, or is it because the oil gets hotter on...
