Yea thats a bit more than im getting, i normally fill up with about 12 gallons, im not sure the size of tank so im estimating around 17 or 18 a gallon, which is target mpg but it could probably be better.

the stock valve is good to about 20psi, according to unabomber from nasioc. if you want, you can put the aftermarket BOV on and then get a tune and make sure they tune out the gas that is spent after you shift, but it doesn't really matter unless you get a big turbo.

Considering I have none of the stock BOV parts im going to look into the tune for the car. Probably wait and get it all tuned after I get intake, exhaust, that way its more benificial.

So Ill just do a little Christmas Time update while im waiting on the food to be cooked...

First Ill start with one of my Xmas presents, with the presence of rain I need to keep my carpet looking good, so my dad got me some of the Subaru All Weather Mats, that way when summer time rolls around my blue mats are still looking sexy... The mats actually fit really well, they were a bit stiff at first but let them sit in the sun for a little bit and they softened up and flexed nicely into the car...

What the Front Look like...


What The Back look like...


These next two i left out of my initial post so ill go ahead and update that too.. Back in July we got a little freak rain storm and I noticed that the Subie throws up alot of dirt so to counter that I bought some of the Rally Armor Polyurethane mud flaps, black with red writing... I absolutely love the way it makes the car look...



Another thing that was left off and i briefly mentioned it in another post but were my upgraded Sway bars. I decided to go with 22mm Whiteline sways in the front and 24mm sways in the back. Dont ask why I went with different thicknesses, its just the way I did it, I noticed that the Subie had quite a bit of body roll compared to my Mini Cooper so to try and counter that i upgraded...



Lastly, I officially got my SCS sticker and rockin it so the world can see!!!!



Well next update should be coming soon, and if things work out it should be my exhaust upgrade... im looking to be getting the Invidia G200 with Invidia Catless downpipe!

Until then Merry Christmas!!!

Honestly the Mini handles like a beast and when me and my dad take it out it can keep right up with the Subie thru the turns. Straight aways the STi pulls tho but cornering the Mini is very good!! I'll post a picture later of my Mini and Subie next to eachother
