2015 Subaru WRX w/ Prototype Tomioka Racing Catless Downpipe

Monday, October 27th, 2014

We installed the prototype of Tomioka Racing Catless Downpipe on the 2015 Subaru WRX. With the catless downpipe we expect to see gains in low end torque and engine response. We had previously installed the TR Engine Oil Cooler, Cobb Accessport V3, and re-flashed the ecu using the stage1 off-the shelf tune. These minor modifications showed improvements of 10whp and 25wtq from the stock 191whp and 225wtq. Also keep in mind that this was done on our DynaPack dyno which reads lower than most.

With the addition of the TR catless downpipe things got pretty interesting.  We had gained 19wtq, but had lost 7whp. Although we had lost nearly the 10whp we gained from the stage 1 re-flah, the increase in low end torque and engine responsiveness was amazing. You can also see that the power is higher at the lower RPM to about 4500 RPM. One thing to note here is that this was not a pro tune. The car is still using the stage 1 map from Cobb. I would expect to see gains in both WHP and WTQ and smoothness with a pro-tune.

As you can see, peak torque was reach much sooner, and the power was smoother up to 5000RPM where a custom tune will help.

EDO Performance & Tomioka Racing 2015 Subaru WRX: Engine Oil Cooler

Saturday, October 11th, 2014

So we have seen the 2015 Subaru WRX made 191whp and 225 ft/lbs from the factory and after re-flash using Cobb Accessport V3 the power jumped to 221 whp with 250 ft/lbs of torque on the dynapack dyno.  Next, we are installing the latest product from Tomioka Racing the temperature controlled engine oil cooler kit. The temperature- controlled oil sandwich adapter adds extra protection to the engine during cold climate with quick engine warm-up and kicks into operation when the engine oil is too warm.The Tomioka Racing cooler utilizes a SETRAB 16-row cooler core well known for its durability and performance. The Tomioka Engine oil cooler kit includes the thermostat adapters, AN8 stainless steel lines assembled with the aluminum fittings and the mounting brackets.

The compact core fits perfectly behind the front bumper beam and the limited ducting space behind the bumper beam fits perfectly for the AN8 stainless Steel lines. The cooler kit comes standard with the additional sandwich plate to accommodate the top-mount oil filter.

With the engine oil cooler installed, we test drove the car in normal street driving condition. The graph below shows the engine temperature difference before and after the installation of the oil cooler data-logged using the Cobb Accessport V3. The result is we saw a temperature drop of 14 degrees. Before the engine oil cooler installed, the engine temperature was at 210 degrees on average and after the oil cooler was installed the temperature average dropped to 196 degree.

Evans Coolant “new project”

Friday, July 19th, 2013

Check it out everybody! Evans Coolant Experiment. How many of you are obsessed with Evans Coolant and how its waterless coolants solve heating problems, reduce maintenance costs, and can reduce fuel consumption! And of course let’s not forget how it improves all our vehicles in just the right way! Well a few weeks ago some of our staff were able to meet with the engineer from Evans and they went over the coolant change for a Nabi bus. Here’s the issue, Nabi bus has problem with the EGR valve cracking under heat due to the poor design of the cooling system. Most of those who were present at the meeting believe the Evans heavy duty coolant has a superior cooling effect on the bus and will help alleviate and reduce the failure rate on these buses. Those who were present took turns draining the coolant and located all the coolant lines and purged all the lines to ensure there was no water in the system. The bus consumed 21 gallons of coolant to fill over the course of the day. Being the fact that Evans coolants helps the environment by reducing emissions and eliminating the need for disposal, a popular “public transportation station” here in the U.S finds as if this particular project will end up a success. What do you all think? Check out a few of these Evans Coolant men in action.
