Want

This has been around some time now, super awesome though

The fire rings are the same as what iag does isn’t it? Does Outfront do fire rings too?

The tuning opportunities offered by having individual cylinder pressure transducers are really awesome. It’s be really cool to see someone do this for the FA to get a better handle on their combustion profile especially with ethanol. No more bent rods!

This is pretty cool! Does anyone know what they use to seal the water passages/oil galleys?

I want to measure cylinder pressure :(. Why does that have to be so hard

That's pretty cool

Mp4-12C are under 100k now a days

Uhh. I'm up there with you bud...

Look at that parts wall!

Yeah and it's only 7k per year for a warranty

Is it will?

not Subaru water color paint? lol

I got that hat when I visited the factory

really? hmm....

Yup I have E85 questions, thinking running a AEM X-Series AFR into ECU via a TGV input (since they're getting delete) will make hopefully Graham's life easier.

I will say McLaren's paint is absolutely fantastic (no bias at all)

I have $7

I know, I'm just giving you shit...

Tell him to get in frame

🤔🤔

That sounds like some DS1 shit right there... lol

WHAT'S UP

HMU

Hi Mark and Dewey. I keep forgetting to drop off this case of Monster white.

No big meat info

10/10, would get a McLaren

WTF WED Throwback edition!

Sometimes we have a WTF moment that takes you back...WAY back. 18 years or so back when the 02 WRX was new. Open Source tuning wasn't really a thing. End user tune-ability wasn't a thing without a stand alone ECU. Cobb made bushings, sway bars, and intakes and the Accessport was just an idea.

The only way to tune your car was hitting up some dudes in Maryland (who are still making parts today) by the name of Turbo XS. You would throw them some cash and they would send you this unit that would piggyback on your stock ECU and essentially "lie" to it to manipulate the ECU to do the things you wanted it to do. This unit even predates their UTEC system which allowed end user tuning.

We found this little gem when a customer was complaining about a misfire. We couldn't hunt it down and went to check the wiring on the ECU and found it sitting there. Looks like she finally gave up the ghost after 18 years of service because when we plugged back into the ECU the car ran perfect.

Stuff like this unit make you look back at how we used to do things and where we came since then. Now you order up a AP and your tuner can shoot you a new map through Facebook! Can you imagine showing that technology to someone with a new bugeye in 2001?

What a trip. Super cool though!

Kids nowadays will never know the struggle.

Turboxs had the potential to be what Cobb is today. I don't know what happened after 07. Feels like they just disappeared.

I ran into one of those recently as well.

I have a turboXs piggyback in my garage. And a hydra standalone And a Saab 9-2x ecu

I still have one of these in a shoe box in my closet

I used to have a Utec on my bug-eye back in the day and I thought that thing was old! LOL

There was Uni-Chip before this. All the guys on the west coast and hawaii were running them. 🤣😂😁

Oh the memories

Turboxs unichip ran one if them for 14 years in my 02...

I have pulled a couple of these out, and still have one sitting in the garage actually haha! The connectors make for good replacement pins.

Heres my wtf wednesday...fuse on a bobcat was replaced with a piece of copper

Feeling nostalgic 🤔 It did the job at the time, definitely much better now

This reminds me of the fuel cut defender we found 😅

Bryan Mundy we’ve talked about this before!

I have 2 Utecs in my shop

#getwithTHEPROGRAM

Daaannngg that should go to the high performance museum of nostalgia. What a specimen. Sell it to them top dollar paid! Hahahahahah. So cool makes me feel old.

Yep, I had a Dastek. It worked really well for the time.

I had Cobb ap v1 on my 04 wrx lol

Looks pretty much the same as the UTEC. I came across a UTEC I. 2007 on an Evo and already thought it was outdated. I recall it used a DOS based interface .

My car had a an APS UNICHIP engine controller when I bought it in 07. It was confiscated when I went to the Ver8. 😢

Some bmw owners are still attempting to use piggybacks like this even today (jb4).... i die inside everytime i see it

Kyle Standon Thought you might get a kick out of this considering.

Put a Utec delta in my bugeye back in 08 none of my laptops had serial ports 😪seemed so outdated back then already

Very professional people! Dewey is the man when it comes to ordering parts! They’re always responsive when you have any questions. Very competitive prices and fast shipping. They got my Subaru’s ecu swapped in a day! I highly recommend this shop for anything Subaru.

These guys do great work, I wouldnt take my subaru anywhere else. I dont know of any other shop that specialize in subarus like six star does. Fantastic customer service as well. They have taken good care of me and im sure they will do the same for you.

From the very beginning till the end was nothing but professionalism and respect for these guys. After having a rough experience from a dealership I wish I would have came here first. Definitely recommend Six Star for everything between routine maintenance to performance upgrades. They know what they are doing. Thank you!

These guys are awesome! Recently had a motor built by them for my 2018 STI. This is my first Subaru and also first turbo car so these guys took the time to really explain the process and made sure everything was getting done correctly. The guys here don’t treat you as a work order either, they will get to know you by name. Im very satisfied with my car and even more with the knowledge I’ve gained from Marvin, Mark and Dewey. This will be the only shop I take my car to.

Really awesome and laid back people. Very knowledgeable with Subaru’s. They also have a awesome on hand stock of modifications like turbochargers, turbo inlet hoses, exhaust, etc. Plus it looks like they had some dealership parts on hand too!

Do yourself and your Subaru a favor and go see these guys, they're simply the best. I couldn't be more happy with the results and the entire experience I had.

Fair pricing, expert mechanics, great customer service. Downside is that they are always booked; shows how good they are. Even if you aren't a customer, they will steer you in the right direction for parts or advice. if you care about your Subaru/ turbo-awd car, this place is for you.

I can't say enough good things about this shop. I've been working with them for years and they have always helped me out in times of need. Even if it was a simple oil change on my Crosstrek or a full engine build it's always a pleasure working with these guys. They will always be my go to shop!

Needed to fix an annoying leak that no one could source and fix but, Mark and the crew took great care of me, they found it and took care of it. Pointed out what needed to be do done and what as looking good. Huge thanks to Six Star Motorsports will definitely go back if I ever need work and would recommend you give them a call!

The team at Six Star is wonderful! They took amazing care of my Forester during its 60K/brake service, and the car feels great. Even took time to schedule a secondary inspection to diagnose a potential clutch issue. They are knowledgable, happy to answer questions, and make you feel very welcome. No doubt they are the best around, and only want the best for you and your vehicle.

Love this place! Always a friendly person there that's willing to help listen and teach. Great selection on items. If you want it and do not see it dont be hesitant to ask I'm sure they can get it for you and more than likely at a lower price as well. This place would be my first selection on localized performance knowledge based people. Highly recommended!
