How to Avoid Piston Failure | Subaru Performance Tips

New to the Subaru game, or turbo cars in general? Here are a few tips to make sure you don’t end up with a new set of automotive themed paperweights!

Our years of experience in the Subaru market have shown us a few things. The first is how to make a ton of power via bolt-ons, an engine build, and a performance tune. We’ve also learned a few things about what not to do – like how to not blow up engines. Unfortunately, the latter seems to occur very often with the EJ25 series of Subaru engines, and even in stock form they have shown to be prone to catastrphic engine failure. There are a few different theories regarding the failure of the pistons, each one as true as the last.

We’ve assembled this short list of reasons why Subaru STi / WRX pistons and engines fail, as well as a few solutions that every Suburu owner can employ via tuning, installation of a few parts at home in their garage, and remember to do on a daily basis. Continue reading

2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Internal Waste Gate from Turbosmart

2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost IWG-75 Actuator

The EcoBoost Mustang has brought turbocharging back to the ‘Stang for the first time since the Fox Body SVO. While the EcoBoost offers strong performance with impressive fuel economy, Turbosmart believes the Mustang’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost has a lot more potential. This is why Turbosmart has committed to developing a whole range of products for all North American EcoBoost models.

The Turbosmart Mustang EcoBoost Internal Wastegate Actuator can help owners get more performance out of their engine with little effort. Turbosmart’s Internal Wastegate Actuator creates a flatter boost curve which comes on sooner, with more stable boost and less drop off at the end of the rev range compared to the stock actuator. The result is a more driveable car with smoother power delivery and less turbo lag.

Turbosmart’s Internal Wastegate Actuator is stronger and more durable than the stock wastegate actuator, and is highly customisable with interchangeable springs for a range of boost levels, so it can allow the EcoBoost engine to release its full potential.

Three Pre-Loaded Performance Tunes & Adjustable Stock Setting

The tune selections for the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost depend on the type of gas you want to put in the tank. For best results, we always recommend running the highest-octane gas available, and running the tune associated with that octane rating (e.g. 93 octane, 91 octane).

93 Octane Performance Tune: + 30 HP | + 55 TQ
Designed for the maximum power and drivability gains, this tune requires users to run a minimum of 93 octane in their gas tank to see the best power gains.
91 Octane Performance Tune: +28 HP | +48 TQ
This tune has optimized the power and economy gains when your run 91-octane gasoline. The power gain is a little less than the 93 tune, but it enhances drivability just like the 93 tune.
Factory HP Tune:
This tune uses the vehicle’s factory calibration, but allows for modifications to the tune to suit your own needs.
