Humm.. Let me ask my engine builder.. I will get back to you on this one.. I didn't think about that because I had an upgraded turbo.. GT45R... I would "assume" you can, however you might over spool it with the added exhaust form the extra displacement even at just .5l... Does anyone know what turbo is on the 06s.. I know they are 2.5L blocks.. Let me ask Manic he has an 06...

I sent out a message I should hear back from him soon...


Edit: Ok, I talked to Manic and his 2006 WRX with the 2.5L stock block has the TD04 Turbo stock so it's all gravey baby..

Yes...but I will probably go with a 50T with the external waste gate if I go with the 2.5

I talked to my engine builder.. He said that the TD04 will spool almost instantly but you will most likely max it out on the top end.. But if you want a hole shot monster that will be one.. But upgrades are always a + but I though you were on a budget??? lol. As for the Transmission get a Spec clutch or like that will slip a little.. DON"T get and ACT, mine engages so hard it's ridiculous and horrible for my drive-train.. Other then that I would also say Gear sets for your transmission, but just going to the 2.5 and a slightly larger turbo will not require an upgrade.. Just keep the stock clutch which will slip before your break gears...

I am on a budget...but most of my upgrades are already done ready for 450+whp..I am not worried at all about breaking my gears or anything else for that matter ...my internals on my Ej20 was my weak point which finally did break..

MY list of 'upgrades'

BIG Ass FMIC with BOV
EJ5-40T Turbo
565cc injectors/walbro 244lph pump/perrin fuel rails
3.5" catless exhaust
unequal headers/includes up-pipe
UTEC
DOG BOX TRANNY/RPS Street Disc
and other random suspension/engine stuff

Then it's definitely worth the 1600 to 1800 for the 2.5 short block!!!

Just going to go with full internals

I am going to go with the 2.3L stroker kit which includes pistons, rods, rings..and all that jazz...so with that said..I am going to get a Billet Crank Shaft but I dont know what size to get the Ej20's 75mm or the EJ25's 79mm and additionally I am going to need a whole new valve train...from my research everything is "the best" but what is...I don't want to go into this halfcocked you know ...anyone have any ideas/suggestions

Nice choice.. Let me know how the stroker spools up and runs.. I am thinking about taking my old 2.0 block and sleeving it and stroking it as a "Back Up" motor.. Sounds like you and I might be a nice match up at the strip.. Nice work.. Ohh, as for the valve-train, I ordered new heads, cams, valves, springs, port/polish through Ron at Axis Racing.. Ron is a great guy that knows his stuff.. He is also very eager to help out and will work with you on prices.. I know I saved a lot because I did it all at one time through him.. Give him a call and talk to him, he might be what you are looking for...

Edit: Ron @ Axis Power Racing - 1.314.443.7414

I just ran into a semi closed STi block with CP pistons and cosworth bearings for 2500....I think I am going to hop on this while the hopping is good....I can get more outta this than a 2.3 stroke...
