Without having to read the whole thing (I last read it when I joined the site lol), which parts are you wondering about?

I'd say most of the info is correct. There may be some info that's slightly off, but overall it's pretty accurate. If you have something specific you're wondering about, just let us know.

Some of those things, particularly that is a little bit on the subjective side. While you may be able to do that, some people may recommend against it.

The idea that you don't need an inter cooler until xx HP is ignoring so many variables that its misleading at best.

I'd suggest sticking to Subaru sites to learn the theory, at least when people give you technically incorrect information its still likely to be applicable to our cars.
