  1. I've seen a couple let go with no boost at all, its a total lottery. Some of the US cars are running 400+ bhp on stock rods and I think the TD dev car is currently running ~380bhp on a stock engine.
  2. Keep an eye on it, engine bay temps get well beyond the glass / deformation temperature of PLA (~50c). It's probably helped by constantly having cold air rushing past it but you definitely don't want that plug deforming and letting unfiltered air in or worse, being sucked into the intake.
  3. You're arguably in better hands with Subaru they will be more familiar with the engine configuration.
  4. I'm pretty sure based on your description you wont be disappointed with that combination.
  5. Finally pulled the trigger on a turbo install from Mike at TD. I couldn't be happier, the car feels incredible. Mike was super helpful all the way through, couldn't have asked for better communication. Even went the extra mile (literally) - making an hour long trip up to KSport HQ to pick up replacement calipers for me after they sent out the wrong ones to make sure all the work was done in time for my pickup. If you're in any doubt about pulling the trigger on this - stop wasting time and go for it, you wont find a better option.
  6. My journey was: TD UEL Manifold only (stock mid pipe and back box)- louder but still extremely quiet compared to any aftermarket exhaust I've heard, you would barely notice it was there unless you were on it. TD UEL + Resonated mid pipe (comes with the exhaust)+ TD back box - Surprisingly loud it's the type of exhaust that draws attention even when you are driving sensibly I was genuinely surprised how loud it was. A little bit droney at motorway speeds. TD Turbo + UEL + decat front pipe( no resonator )+ Super resonated mid pipe + TD back box - This was perfect for me - car sounds a lot throatier than stock at idle/sensible driving and definitely louder but not really attention grabbing for non car people. Think something like a V8 F type or GTR (although sadly not quite the same soundtrack...) When you are on it its much louder than stock but still follows the theme of sounding like a loud OEM system rather than being attention seeking. No drone at all on motorways. Still have the resonated pipe- might throw it back on for car shows when I actually am attention seeking😄
  7. With the manifold, the stock exhaust is louder than stock but yeah things will definitely be louder. Also worth noting if you decide you don't like it you can buy a mid pipe with a smaller resonator to up the volume, I did the same in reverse.
  8. It's louder than stock, I previously had the resonated version which was surprisingly loud and decided to swap over when I had the turbo installed. Without a turbo yours wont sound identical to mine but id imagine the volume will be similar - My turbo will drop the volume a little but I also have no cats without which things are a bit louder.
  9. I've got that setup, don't have a db reading for you but id be shocked if it was over any track limits, it sounds great but it's not at all loud.

    Good to see you today Lauren, my trip back was fun, especially M6 toll drag gates😄 Shame about all the metalwork in my boot...

    For the sake of clarity - for road use and a lot of casual track use almost all wheels are 'safe'. Catastrophic failures when you aren't already mid crash ploughing sideways into a kerb are incredibly rare. That's a pretty classic design pretty much everyone offers some variation of it, you'd be hard pressed to figure out who was the first. TSW Venoms looked similar and they came out about 25 years ago.

    Largely it's about the fact that rota's wheels all copy the designs of other established wheel manufacturers, they are not alone in this though. Rays are a high end JDM brand that tend to make new designs. They are one of the most copied manufacturers.

    Some people just don't drive hard so they mistakenly don't see the value in having your car properly connected to the planet. If it's got a service history I wouldn't say it's a red flag though.
