I'd like to make an announcement. We have our new Plug and Play tuner boxes ready for our systems. $459MSRP

These are very basic units that are mapped for 91 octane gas. They work with bolt-ons and our high boost pulley (12psi) for the 210 kit only. The mapping is conservative. CARB certification is still pending. You can pull and clear check engine codes. However, no logging support is currently offered. We prefer the Torque app for logs.

No E85 support is offered at this time. The premise behind this tuner box is just to get you down the road happily with good mileage. If you already have an ECUTEK, there's no advantage to changing over to this. Highway mileage is 27-31mpg depending on your right foot. I have no dyno results yet, but those are coming.

[ame="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Lxx6UUiLqA"]Sprintex BRZ High Boost Pulley - YouTube[/ame]

This is on the high boost pulley with the tuner box. The torque is fat and flat from idle to redline. His only other mods are a full exhaust. This was with 2 people and the A/C blasting in 105F heat.

Hey all, new to the page, been lurking a long time.

I bring to you a new noise I'm hearing, I took my invidia n1 off for a change of sound and I'm running cnt uel header with stock pipes.

This obviously quieted things down, and now I'm hearing a ringing noise in the 6500+ rpms. I'm running stock pulleys and a dayco belt with the 75mm sprintex pulley.

Have a listen: [ame]http://youtu.be/qrJ1Ixw_Qkk[/ame]

My guess is the belt starts slipping, it's probably only got about 4k on it, should I go smaller belt? I've also got a 69mm pulley on the way.

If you're running the K061015 currently, use the K061010 instead with the 69 or 70mm pulley. Fits much better and that's my first guess.

In the video he's running the 75mm

so yesterday i was doing some spirited driving (albeit a lot less spirited than i used to drive my N/A BRZ..), and I turned the car off. Came back to drive off 10 mins later and it started blowing heaps of blue smoke out the exhaust! I shut it off immediately and popped the bonnet. Oil leaking from the front of the pulley, and no oil in the reservoir (i checked in the morning and it was full!). Went home on the back of a tow truck.

So the oil seals appear to have failed, and dumped the blower oil in my engine, burning it off, blue smoke. The kit is under a year old, this should surely be covered under warranty right? I wasn't even driving it that hard.

I've seen a few of you with the Nameless ceramic coated intake pipe for the 210 kit, does anyone know if there is one for the 335?

Other question to that would be is the plastic pipe different diameter with the 335 kit? I think it uses the same plastic intake pipe as the 210.

Another question would be should it be larger. I'd lean towards yes as the more air available for the supercharger, the better. Sucking through a straw vs sucking through a garden hose.

Nameless no longer sells the metal intake pipe, but if you message them perhaps they will make an exception and make you one special order.

Has anybody heard any details on when the 210+ kit might come out? I swear I remember around this time last year hearing that it would be coming soon and yet, here it is a year later and still nothing. Are they still planning on producing it or did it get the ax at some point?

This will be our race upgrade.

We're looking at our first production run of these in a couple of months. We'll have them in sub-assemblies like the 335 upgrade kit so you can just buy the blower and drop it onto your existing kit. If you are wondering who would buy your existing blowers, look no further than the DIY tinkerer's at http://www.RS25.com .

We've seen a 10-12% gain in power with tuning. Testing has gone very well.

There will be NO trade-in option.

No price on them yet.

Nope, same diameter pipe but it's slightly longer and a different angle at the top given that the TB on the inlet for the 335 sits further back and at more of an angle

Guys. Considering buying a used inter cooled kit with 8k miles on it.. How have these things been holding up? Is that a lot of mileage for one of these?

8k? They aren't supposed to have the oil changed until 10k

Any word back? I assume the JB Performance is a different weight and from the recommendation below it seems to keep your warranty valid you would want to go with the Tribodyn High Performance 75W90

Let me know what you think of this one, I like this one:

I keep looking at the Seibon and the RK Sport hood. The Seibon looks very Subaru, which is nice, but I think the low profile and color matching of the RK Sport might look better.
Just don't know how functional it is and if it will clear the blower.
