I know when it came out a few people I knew switched to it and havent looked back. In matter of fact one of the guys had a turbo smart on his and switched, but he also really liked his turbo smart. So I would in my humble opinion stick with one of those.
So you chose save my money, :P!!!!
Cobb is my goal! If they do the same work why spend more?
And I can use it 50/50, how you said looking to WideBand, and making some noise
I have no words for help you guys are giving to me!
Next step is decide about TGV delete, a tuner quoted that service using mine per almost R$ 750,00 and I think that is expensive, using mine.
With that price I could take Avo ones or Grimmspeed. And keep mine.
Im in progress few things changed, but some I add with your advices!
You all feel free to advice about brands, parts or anything else!

Tks!

Tgv deletes are a waste of time, keep your money and turbo. I made 337whp and 411tq on e85. Car should go 11s with proper driving. You know what you wont see on my mods list? TGV deletes, pain to go back to stock too

Here, in Brazil, we have E100, BTW it and E85(doenst exist here. People which use it do own mix on gas station) arent good for me.
My car is a daily drive and if I tune it for E100 it will give me a low autonomy, and to be honest I dont think that our engines(WRX) like Ethanol, fuel rail etc. For a lot of guys it a myth busted, but I will not pay to see. I dont want to come back here with a facepalm and saying that my engine blow up !Cry!
Yes you are correct, back to stock after TGVs will be a pain, that is the cause that I should buy AVO TGVs and keep my OEM.

BTW I need a help, AVO gives me two options for TGVs side feed and top feed. Does anyone know which is the correct?

Thanks a lot guys!

Threads are popping up everywhere on full-time e85, look at this one :

E85 goo - this time with an attitude - DSM Forums

Meth FTW


In all honesty, if you're going to do TGV's, there is other stuff that can be done at the same time (phenolics, TIP, injectors)

Ive been read a lot about the E85 Army on NASIOC.
Autonomy is so low(like flex cars), and my day drive is hard, very hard, gridlocks everytime, speed at max 50km/h.
If my WRX was a second car I jump on E-100, a friend of mine done one, and he got 35 o lbs/tq on wheels with stock Turbo! He reduced turbo pressure because OEM clutch couldnt hold it.
For exemple today I did a trip of 280km on 140km/h I did 10km/l with 95 oct, I think that it is a good number for a turbo car 4 cylinders with 265hp.

So pzr2874, do you think that is not good/ necessary do TGV delete, only remove butterfly from the trotlle body?

Feel free to correct any tecnical mistake, give advices or whatever you all think that will be good for my ideas!

If you're going to do any of the mentioned mods, TGV replacement would be your best bet. Find a set already done and switch yours out. Plates or the delete mod.

Pzr2874,
Im in doubt if I take avo(cheaper and with gaskets) or Grimmspeed (more expensive without gaskets for replacement).
But AVO have 2 kinds side and top feed, I really dont know what is mine.
Im trying to take pics from mine but I cant reach my goal, avo seem not care for selling it or not. But Im trying, I will take pics from all motor and send to them, and wait for an answer.

Tks!

My first thought is top feeds. But one of the other NEWER WRX/STi guys should will verify.

Can't go wrong with Grimmspeed but shipping alone will be murder but you won't need to send your stockers back (If you ever want to revert back to stock).

just look. top feed injectors are like a dime in diameter and long and side feed are like a quarter and short and fat.

pzr2874, yes I think that I will follow your advice, avo seems that doesnt want sell. I will spend more money, but with more consumer help and attention.

Just to clarify the injectors are thin and long! Blue ones.
I cant get an angle to take pictures, its a narrow place and still have the fuel rail protector.


For all:
Grimmspeed answered me that they cant work with core fee, because is hard have TGV from wrx 08+, they advised me buy one used in USA and ship for them to do the work.
Like you all like to say, They are on crack!

So thats all, AVO top Feed! Here we go!

Regards.
