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.

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.

Your Southern California Evans Waterless Coolant Distributor!

Friday, August 17th, 2012

Hello Everyone,

EDO Performance is proud to announce our brand new product line Evans Coolant!

We are now distributing the next generation of waterless lifetime coolant for your sports compact, domestic, trucks, and sports bike!

What makes Evans Coolant stand out?

Benefits of this coolant vs. traditional water base coolant includes:

  • Increased operating temperature of the fluid reduces the fan load and increase fuel economy by 10%!
  • The waterless design extends you’re engine life by reducing coolant pressure and corrosion within the engine.
  • Never change your coolant again! The coolant chemical blend eliminates boil over, freezing, removes water corrosion and best of all it is biodegradable safe for the environment.

If it all sounds too good to be true hear America’s number 1 gear head Jay Leno has to say about it!

Jay Leno on Evans Coolant

Please see below for the Evans Coolant to suit your needs!

Evans Cooling Prep Fluid (1 Gallon) MSRP $33.95

Evans Prep Fluid is a waterless cooling system flush designed to seek out remaining water after draining the cooling system of an engine. Prep Fluid should be used when block drains are unavailable or cannot be removed. It is not a substitute for thoroughly draining the cooling system and related components. A minimum of 2 gallons of Prep Fluid is recommended for heavy duty diesel engines and 1 gallon of Prep Fluid is recommended for all motorcycles converting to NPG+ or NPG. Prep Fluid is NOT intended to be a stand-alone operating coolant, but as a flush only.

Evans NPG+C High Performance Waterless Coolant (1 Gallon) MSRP $43.95

Evans High Performance Coolant combines the benefits of Evans NPG+ and NPGR. NPG+C provides superior cooling protection for all gasoline and light duty diesel engines, including marine and light aircraft. In conditions ranging from -40° to 375°F. High Performance Coolant provides cooling protection through constant liquid coolant contact with engine metals. Eliminates water-causing corrosion, electrolysis and cavitations. One successful installation provides cooling protection for the life-time of the engine, reducing maintenance time and expense.

Evans Heavy Duty Coolant Waterless (1 Gallon) MSRP $47.95

Evans waterless Heavy Duty Coolant boils at 375° F. In use, it features a huge separation between the operating temperature of the coolant and its boiling point. Heavy Duty Coolant can therefore control metal temperatures at coolant temperatures that are well above the boiling point of water. With engine metals protected at higher coolant temperatures, fan turn-on temperatures can be safely increased. Evans has found that raising the fan temperature to about 230° F can decrease fan-on time over 50 percent. Engine and truck builders often use giant radiators and amazingly powerful radiator fans for the sole purpose of keeping water-based coolants cold enough to remain functional. Released from the burden of avoiding the boiling point of water, Heavy Duty Coolant waterless coolant enables the safe use of higher coolant temperatures and sharply reduced fan usage. Thousands of dollars in fuel savings annually result from that technique.

Evans Powersports Waterless Coolant (4x 1/2 Gallon Bottle)) MSRP $107.80

Evans Powersports Coolant offers improved performance and reliability. Even under extreme conditions, Evans Powersports Coolant will not overheat. Using Evans Coolant allows the engine to be safely tuned for more power. A higher compression ratio, leaner mixture, and more advanced spark are some of the options available to the engine builder. Evans Powersports Coolant provides permanent cooling protection for the life of the engine so replacement is never necessary. Its superior corrosion protection is not degraded over time and it won’t freeze or damage engine components.

 

Evans NPG Waterless Coolant (2 Gallon (4x 1/2 Gallon Bottle)) MSRP $111.80

Evans NPG is the Original Waterless Coolant. NPG is a lifetime coolant. NPG is recommended for racing engines that run on tracks or in series where there is a “NO Ethylene Glycol” rule, and can be used in high performance street vehicles with high flow cooling systems. NPG is NOT recommended for daily drivers or cold weather operation, and may require system modifications to ensure a successful conversion.

Evan Cooling Installation is a snap!

Take the following steps for your coolant change:

Hi-performance / Racing Instructions

NPG coolant is acceptable by most racing sanctions where stipulated as “no antifreeze.” Verify coolant requirements in your rulebook. If no specific antifreeze ruling exists, NPG+ or NPGR may be used.

Recommended coolant quantities:

Small Block applications – 4 gallons

Big Block applications – 6 gallons.

Always have at least 2 gallons with you as spare. NPGR racers discount @ 8 or more gallons.

Hi Performance Suggestions

  • Install hi performance aluminum tube radiator.
  • Remove the thermostat and plug all bypass hoses.
  • Install heater shut off valve.
  • Increase the pump drive ratio with a smaller pump pulley.

Maximizing Racing Systems

  • Convert the upper hose and thermostat housing to 1¾”OD.
  • Two -16 AN lines are the minimum upper hose size recommended.
  • Install external lines from the rear of the manifold, bigger is better, line size should be -12 AN.
  • For intake manifold fill location use an expansion tank.
  • Use maximum pump drive ratio possible 80% of crank rpm or more.
  • For safety reasons all overflow hoses must be connected to an overflow tank or catch can.

Hi Performance Instructions

  1. NEVER work on a conventional hot pressurized water/antifreeze cooling system – allow cooling completely before starting coolant conversion.
  2. THE BLOCK MUST BE DRAINED. The system must be completely empty and as clean as possible. Complete drain instructions must be followed especially when converting from OAT (Organic Acid Technology, such as DexCool) or HOAT (Hybrid Organic Acid Technology) coolants. Improper draining and flushing may leave residual OAT or HOAT coolant which is not compatible with Evans “waterless” coolants.
  3. REMOVE THE THERMOSTAT OR RESTRICTOR.
  4. PLUG THE THERMOSTAT BYPASS HOSE.
  5. Install Evans Full Time Bleed Line (#EFTBK) in the pump and connect to intake manifold. A manual pump bleed is an option.
  6. If the radiator cap is on the thermostat housing, it must be removed or made a sealed fill cap with no pressure setting. Low-pressure cap cannot be used in this location due to being the pressure side of the system. Cap will vent.
  7. Install an expansion tank with a cap (zero or 7psi) that is plumbed into the suction side (lower hose). Minimum capacity 2 quarts.
  8. Attach all hoses and replace all plugs. Open manual air bleed and fill the system with Evans Coolant. Close air bleed when coolant appears.
  9. Install the self adhesive round “Evans” decal provided, on the radiator cap or close to the fill location.
  10. When using an expansion tank or remote fill location. Fill radiator to the top and install radiator cap. (zero or 7 psi)
  11. Fill the expansion tank half full.
  12. Start the engine and bring it up to operating temperature.
  13. Open manual air bleed if possible to bleed any air that has been trapped in the pump.
  14. Stop engine and allow to cool. Check expansion tank level and adjust as required.
  15. For the next few times operating the vehicle check the level in the expansion tank and add Evans coolant as required.
