Watch out for the Water Injection, it "Can" be hell on crank bearings.. Your injecting water into your combustion chamber. In case you didn't think about it, water doesn't compress like air so your going to also raise your compression..

I went with RC engineering Injectors.. Their 1200cc injectors are direct drop in and will be plenty for what you are doing and still give you room for growth..

I suggest a SPEC clutch, most of the shops that I have consulted suggested it to me, however I already had the ACT (which I just spun)..

I have an Aeromotive FPR and LOVE it..


Ohh, and you said AVCS cams?? Did you pick up the AVS heads? Am I missing something?

With an 06 WRX, you don't need to replace the uppipe because there is no cat in it.

Oh. I guess I didn't pay too much attention to that.

With all of the power that you are getting, what transmission or gears are you going to go with? I keep telling myself that if my motor goes that I am going to go with Cobb Stage 2 Tuner Series block and Cobb Stage 2 (or 3?) Tuner Series Heads. But, I don't want to have to spend as much for a STi transmission as I am the motor.

Then you're not going to want to go this route. You will spend way more buying Cobb.

The 2.5L block and WRX head combo is going to do you right and be alot cheaper. You could look into cams too, this would help up top.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)

Yeah, I talked to a tuner over the weekend, and he was telling me to go with a JDM STi block and get the WRX heads porte and polished.

Also, he told me that if you go with the 2.5 heads, that you need to go with a STi ECU. I didn't know that.
