    Yeah, being in Florida, that was a must-have. I drove a bit before installing it, and saw temps around 210f around town, 230 highway, and we had cool temps at the time (high 60's-low 70's). After installing, 170 highway, around town, never above 200, and it's been hot (mid-80's). When summer comes around, if I'm still dailying it, I'll probably be looking into a vented hood as well (it's a front mount tubro).

    I had installed it with the turbo, but the sandwich plate required a different filter, so I had to wait to hook it up.

    Only issue now is, I'm at the point my tuner asked for a WOT pull in 3rd, but I'm only seeing around 9psi, when I should see 10, so I have to check for a boost leak.

    Nice. But why Crosstrek? Might as well get an Outback.

    Well for the same options a Crosstrek is like $6k cheaper. Only thing the Outback really has feature wise is the power tailgate and obviously more space. But the Crosstrek is plenty big for me. Still just mulling it over though.

    Plus if I got an Outback, I'd be the 4th family member to get one

    I kinda want to wait, since rumors are that there will be a turbo Crosstrek in 2019 or 2020 (WRX engine, or new one?). But who knows, plus the price could put it out of my budget for a 2nd car.

    If you wait till then, you can get a used Crosstrek or Outback for less!

    Buy a truck to tow the 86 to the track.
