:D One word: Supercharger

HSPN Networks (www.hspn.com) should have some more information and a video about this latest modification that is expected be available soon (we hope).

No word yet on increases in horsepower or torque, throttle response, or reliability. We should know more information in the next week or so.

Is this an add-on feature existing owners can purchase, or is this some sort of factory installed-only option? Subaru seems to be factory installed only crazy with pretty much everything on the Tribeca (which sucks ass!).

I saw it today. Pictures and interview video to come soon!

Cobb has a prototype exhaust, brake kit, supercharger, and lowering kit.

Accessport too!

Cobb is not positive whether these will make production but they want to hear from Tribeca owners.

Also, supercharger adds 40-50 hp and you still have a flat torque. no official numbers yet...

If the blower will work on the 3.0 Outbacks also, I think they have their market :) So will you get one even if theydont make production? :-D

Again, is this planned to be an add-on feature existing owners can purchase, or is this some sort of factory installed-only option they are going for?

I am buying my Tribeca in the next week (possibly tomorrow) and would love to know.

Also, what does this do to MPGs?

This is from Cobb Tuning (www.cobbtuning.com) If you are not familar with them, they are an aftermarket Subaru Tuning company. This will not be a factory option and will most definatley have parts of your warrenty have claims denied.

Therefore it can be installed after you have bought your Tribeca :tup:

It shouldn't have a real bad effect on mpg at cruising speeds and very light throttle, but of course if you sink your foot in it, she'll drink for sure with the added air being forced into the engine. :)

We have the ability to design a system for the Outback/Legacy H6 models. The system as you see on the Tribeca would need to be altered in order to fit those models however due to reduced hood clearance.

We're testing the waters with the Tribeca to see what people are most interested in. The kit itself, including Supercharger, AccessPORT, intake and Intercooler should retail for approximately $4500. No cutting or drilling is required, so its a relatively easy installation. The compressor we used is very quiet and has its own oiling system so you don't have to share oil with the engine. That reduces chances of a quicky oil change place messing something up, or the supercharger unnecessarily heating the engine's oil.

Fuel economy is still good. Of course that ultimately depends on how you drive. Highway and City driving thus far on our test vehicle has only shown a very slight decrease in economy, no doubt due in part to the several "joy rides" that have been given to interested parties.

Please do get the word out so we can see what interest really exists. We need to learn if the Subaru H6 market will embrace an aftermarket solution to the lack of power from this engine or if instead we should be turning our focus to another one of the many projects on our plates.

Thanks,
Trey @ COBB

Since you didn't mention them in the above quote, what would the suspension and cosmetic changes run?

More Power for Tribeca

Count me in? More power for the Tribeca.....

Can you provide a detail estimate cost of each of the parts mention:
exhaust, TC, IC, Brakes and suspension kit.

Thanks,

Yikes with my girlfriend in the market for a new B9, I can see myself trying to mod her car and ignoring my own....well, maybe not completely ignore. :p
But as far as a intake, AP, exhaust and springs, I would be down for that (assuming the exhaust isn't too loud after all it will be her daily driver). Supercharger might be a bit too much for her lol.

Does anyone know where to find the Cobb Tribeca write-up anymore? I can't find it now on their new site and want to know what they used to lower the suspension.
