ya, hit all the way to the line in between blk and red...not good. Actually happen the weekend before too coming from Palm Springs in 110 degree heat. I think that it really need to be addressed before I go and have the car tuned...that is when that's available. If they have a nice aluminum radiator I can install at the same time it would be a good idea. took more pics today with the car freshly tinted. will post tomorrow once I size them down!

I've pounded my car numerous times, including drag racing and staging in 100+ heat and 30% humidity with no heat issues... I was sucking enough hot exhaust from other cars that it wrecked my IAT readings.

 

is the outback radiator different from the lgt radiator? Weird, but have you considered flushing your radiator fluid and refilling to see if it improves things?

^ Yeah i was thinking that too after reading the response with Palm Springs...I too have done that run, and my temp gauge stayed dead steady at about a little less than half way up the gauge. And we were attacking that mountain. Had my AC on as well.

If the radiator isn't different in the Outback, it may be worth it to get it checked out by the dealer because switching up radiators.

I'll flush it and see what happens. I think it's just a fluid issue. What's the best fluid on the market BTW? I'd like to use something that is a quality product. Here's some more pics. Also a shot of my carbon markers that I made. Enjoy.

they are loud, but it's because of the reinforced sidewall. can't have it all...

 

i like the low slip angle and the sticky for the right mix of price and performance they also last long enough to be reasonable for daily driving, and have big enough blocks not to chunk when on the track.

 

I don't like - NVH, but yeah... maybe if there's something better when these wear out i'll give it a try...

I guess everyone with the coilovers can respond but natoli how far away from the bump stops do you sit in the rear? I'm currently riding the fine line between bottoming out on the stop and bottoming out on the coilover but I would like to see my car a little lower. I'm just trying to decide what to do.

The rear Subaru bump stops have been removed so that the car could be lowered even more. I have roughly a 1/2-3/4" that the car can come down before I run out of threads....Ya know? I think if it went any further down I'd be running into rubbing issues based on the offset of the wheels. I would stay away from Legacy Coilovers BTW. The way they are set up don't offer a very comfortable ride. The outback ones are stiff but you can live with it.

Yeah I figured you must have taken out the bump stops by just looking at the gap between the fender and wheel well because there is no way you could have gotten that low with them on. Is there any reason to keep them on with the MR coilovers on? What about matching the rears height wise in the front do you have rubbing issues when you turn the wheels to full lock?

Pep Boys sells metallic BLk...better than flt black because it catches a bit of light and give it it alittle hint of silver. Then clear them with satin clear to knock it down a bit. unfortunately the clear I used sucks and is starting to flake off! It takes around 6-8 cans BTW.

Ya I was at 4 on 6 in the Valley last night...Saito is the man. I usually go on Wednesdays with one of my buddies who is in there all the time.

 

Thinking about lifting the car this fall to get ready for winter...not sure as of yet though. want to put 17's with some snow tires...something like this.
