Cornerspeed did the install for me and from what I know didn't run into any issues. The only issue is with the Charge Pipe coupler to the turbo. It ended up popping off the other day while at the track (bummer) and caused a major boost leak.

Contacted Killer B and they sent me a new much-improved coupler and hasn't come off since the install

Here you go.

The one on the right was the problematic one. You can see how it's chewed up from the clamp and is shorter on the left side which connects to the charge pipe. also, has a small bump coming down from the top which made it hard for the clamp to hold. With the charge pipe moving up and down when on boost created a bad combination causing the clamp and hose to come loose.

- The new one (left) removed the bump and extended out the left side for more surface area for the clamp to hold on to.

They also included a much better clamp with the new hose. Overall fit of the kit was spot on though. Great product.

On Nov 10-11th I participated in Global Time Attack x Super Lap Battle. Had a great opportunity to be sponsored by Corner Speed Tuning and could not resist. John at corner speed has been working on my car since day one and knew my intentions and has helped me build my WRX to get to this point.

Ended up coming in second place in class with a new PB of 2:07:428. Had an awesome time and can't wait to get out again next year. I highly suggest coming out to the event even if you are not running. There are a lot of great teams, cars, and people to be seen.
