Lightweight goodies

It was once again time for PRI.  I love the fact that when we go down to PRI we are talking to the engineers and owners of the company that are there are willing to answer every question that we have regarding there products and take feedback from the guys in the industry to help further there products along.

One of the big things this year was titanium. We were at the MetTec booth discussing with them about this slew cheap China bolts that we have been seeing on the market. We have ran into them a few times with heads snapping off at 22 ft.lbs on a M8 bolt!!! They told us the cause of this is cheap titanium and the process of treating them for color like burnt titanium will weaken the bolt causing premature failure.

At MetTec all there bolts are bare titanium with forged heads and rolled threads for better fatigue resistance. All there bolts are heat treated to a minimum UTS of 140Ksi.

We are working with there sales team to bring bolt kits for your import and domestic needs.

Neetronics 08 to 16 STI FPR Kit.

We are proud to announce the release of the Neetronics FPR retro fit kit. These kits are design to remedy the 2300 to 2800 RPM shudder that affects the 08 and up STI. This kit is meant for direct install with little to no modification. All fittings are OEM or better. This kit uses a genuine Subaru OEM STI fuel pressure regulator.  All lines are high pressure fuel safe lines also rated for E85 with burst pressures of 900PSI!!

After hour of test and datalogging we have also also relocated the vacuum source location from cylinder 4 to under the manifold where the stock diverter valve gets to source from. To make sure your FPR reference is not affected by leaking aftermarket diverter or blow off valves we supply zinc plated metal reducers to adapted the supplied vacuum lines the the rightful ports so you are not sharing vacuum reference ports and losing fuel pressure under heavy load.
