    Fensport vs Tuning Developments

    Forrester, going through a puddle? https://goflatoutph.com/2019/05/21/many-unibody-suvs-cant-go-off-road-and-then-theres-the-subaru-forester-with-video/

    I did tell them which is why they did not bother fitting that turbo engine to the BRZ in first or second gen even though they had to develop the NA variant specifically. [emoji6][emoji6]For a high ground clearance SUV or even a rally car vs a low to the ground sports car, no comparison mate. [emoji3] Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Probably worth telling Subaru then

    Very few will claim they did damage driving their car through water. That's an idiot claiming he is one. [emoji2960][emoji3] So forums will not abound with such feedback. I did say its not a hugely likely scenario but with a low car and potentially lowered , is not a brilliant design for a daily. Great for track though as low COG. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    I had a Sprintex supercharger previously (and several turbo cars) and preferred the progressive, more predictable and 'big engine' feel of a supercharger. The Harrop is a more grown-up supercharger with its Eaton core and intercooling over the Sprintex and is much quieter in operation (no whine). It also has no lag so, together with the excellent tune from Abbey, responses are lightning fast. There is some parasitic load but it doesn't affect responses and power is up by 50% to just over 300bhp which is plenty. To be honest, it just feels like it's a 3.0l engine. The combination of the excellent OEM feel of the Harrop kit and Abbey's attention to detail in the installation are just what I wanted for a car that is my daily all-season driver.

    He's referring to Abbey, Fensport and Tuning Developments.

    I don't think anyone on this forum is arrogant enough to ever insinuate they are an 86 expert. The only real 86 expert I’ve ever met was Tada-san lol

    All are experts with the 86, you can talk to them all and go with your own vibe.

    If you're driving hard enough to get the turbo that hot and then you drive into a lake, I think the turbo will be the least of your worries.... While the hot turbo, cold water scenario is possible, it is highly improbable. I haven't seen any "I wrote my turbo off driving through a puddle" threads on any forum.

    Wouldn't happen to have any pictures? I assume its just an L shaped bracket that allows it to mount to the crash panel?

    For sure if you can retain their box fresh feel they will be fine. Seemed to hardly wear, were silent and virtually dust free so better then oem for the road.

    Fair shout. Intake on one side ( not the sucking of water into engine and total write off scenario) , turbo itself runs so hot that any water touching it will cause it to split/ crack and is not a cheap replacement. So the risk exists with low cars like ours and while the design has pros of low cog and potentially lower intake temps , it has cons as well. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Still uses the OEM airbox, so the intake is no lower than stock.

    Abbey did the complete install, ecutek licence, mapping etc. similar to Martin in terms of cost. Although the Harrop kit had increased in price by the time I ordered so a little more. I had uprated discs, pads and lines fitted at the same time so breaking down labour is a bit tricky as it was all as one. Would recommend speaking to Scott or Mark at Abbey, both very helpful.

    True but if you go through a deep puddle even without a turbo you risk thermal shock cracking the hot exhaust manifold or warping a hot brake disc etc. I’d still rather have the turbo placed lower than higher in the engine bay and be sure to avoid deep puddles.

    If its a daily, a low mounted turbo on a low car runs a potential risk of water ingress , especially with deep puddles. Does not happen frequently but is a risk due to design. Sent from my SM-G970F using Tapatalk

    Like Jay said, I'd be happy to take the rear mud guards off you 😬
