Default Biggest ruin of a car yet...

Eaton M90 + Subaru STI = 56whp.

Not the blower'* fault it got painted a red that'* close to pink and was HACKED, but still one questions why it would be done in the first place.

I like the kirkland water bottle for the overflow "tank" and the amazing tensioner mount.

The pulley welded onto the alternator to drive it is spectacular as well!



HALF the original turbo








Note the sweet water bottle in the corner.


Word is it did 52whp Blown, and 40whp N/A. Obviously it'* not setup for N/A at all, and the blower isn't exactly good... Not bashing on m90'* or anything, just showing a scary hack job.... Car sold for 15k, and needed a whole new engine basically, but if you're doing a build it'* not a bad deal... just headaches lol...

NOT Gain.. Total WHP.

It had at most 1 psi because of the hack job, and improper pulleys, and it'* a motor setup for much more boost in the cam profiles, compression ratio, etc...

Half a turbo housing sitting in the exhaust doesn't help matters at all either.

I dunno, I am having a pretty hard time believing that it makes ONLY 52 hp That car would hardly move at all with that little bit of power.

I like how the intake pipe isn't connected to the reducer. I also find it amusing that the supercharger belt goes around the alternator and supercharger pulley only.

That'* one nasty build.
