Nice! One of the best years and color combinations for the XT.

I've got to say I'm pleased you didn't lower it and instead addressed the handling issues at stock height.

How do you like the stroker motor? I would really like to end up with one, eventually, because I like the lower end torque.
I just sold a full race engine on the LGT forum because it was a little too aggressive for me and I didn't want to mess with a new engine and tuning before moving to another state. I do miss it already, though

2008 outback XT stroker build
Hello after many years I am joining the Outback community and am please to introduce my pride and joy. This car is still a work in progress but here's were she sits now. Enjoy!

Engine and exhaust
Cobb V3 access port
Manley 83 mm billet stroker crank
Crower I beam rods
JE pistons
Cosworth 278-274 cams
Super tech 70lb valve train
ARP head studs
Cosworth head gasket
Moroso oil pan/ motul oil 15/50 summer and 5/40 winter
Crawford AOS
MSI fuel rails with upgraded fuel lines
AVO fuel pump
Tomi fuel pressure regulator
PE 800cc injectors currently being swapped to ID 1000 cc because of issues
3 port boost control
Blouch 20g XT turbo
AVO top mount
Perrin equal length headers
Up pipe
Cobb cat less down pipe
Spt dual exhaust
SPT cold air intake
Koyo radiator
Grim speed light weight pulley
Optima red top

Breaks
Stage two slotted rotors
Hawk pads
Good-ridge steal Bradded lines
Motul break fluid

Once these burn out I will be upgrading to a big break kit front and rear most likely either Brembo or Stop tech

Suspension- a work in progress
White line front and rear sways with end links
Avo under body brace kit front and rear
Avo steering rack bushings
Avo control arm bushings
Sti tops hats front and rear
New but stock springs and KYB gr2
I am considering dropping it soon but still need to figure out what will be best for me. Being at stock ride height I have the distinct advantage of being able to mash anywhere and every were with no regard. This includes being able to run over zombies.

Exterior
Rally tech full skid plate
Rally innovations light bar
PIAA lights

Wheels
Stock 17" powder coated with Sumitomo HRT A/S P01 235-50-17 winter
Tenzo r sport 18" with Michelin pilot super sport 245-45-18 summer

Drivetrain
Kart boy short thro shifter with bushings
Act hd clutch with fly wheel
Stock 5 speed. I know it's crazy
Once the tranny blows I will either do a full six speed swap with 180 diff and DDC or helical PPG set.

I'm sure I left a few things out but this is the bulk of it

When originally tuned the car put down 350whp and 355lbs on crap 91 Octane at 19 psi. I swear I would tell 91 octane to got to **** but I don't think satan could make much power with it either. With my current injector issue it is suffering and so I am swapping in ID 1000 cc injectors and doing a retune in a couple of days. Thanks for all of your posts and knowledge to the Outback community. Any feed back or comments are appreciated as I have lots more to learn and still have a ways to go on my build particularly on breaks, drive train and suspension. I will update this post pictures after the new tune. Peace my brothers!
