What's coming off? The throttle body hose at the throttle body or at the piping? What turbo are you running? I hope your not running the stocker that high as I can only imagine your not making any more power than at 18 or 19 psi

mine would not stay on my throttle body!! u have to remove the thin silicone ends that go around the kevlar coupler! and from your pic your already blowing it out the back of the coupler. i took them off, used hair spray on the inside and smooth sailing ever since.

AVO does make a silicone TB coupler for $70 also

23PSI and only 303HP?? what dyno you using? lowest mustang in the country would run more than that id hope. most ive seen the VF52 push on any dyno was 342HP with like every bolt on, 23-24psi and E85

UPDATES

I don't update here much so here is the "cut down version"

Bought:
SZ55 turbo (free) 55lb/min turbo with 8cm hotside originally produced by Deadbolt
Perrin rails w/ the stainless line.
AMR 3" cast inlet (soon to be sandblasted and powdercoated to match intercooler piping)
Kartboy crank pulley (installed <3 it)
KS TECH TGV/Airpump deletes (waiting for turbo swap)
Seibon OEM style hood
Goodrich s/s lines & Motul fluidsssss

The turbo was sent to FP for a full rebuild, had some shaft play but for the price I couldn't beat it....should be back in a few weeks. Installed Seibon oem style hood which is about 1/2 the weight of the stocker; I believe the stocker is 40ish lbs (much heavier than the older wrx/sti hoods). While the car was up on the lift I installed a set of s/s brake lines, motul fluids, sold the SPT cbe and had a full 3" single exit one made. Prior to the turbo swap I will be sending out the throttle body, TGV's and turbo to be ported/polished.

Turbo pics before it went to FP

AMR INLET

So time for an update. I just picked up the TGV's and throttle body from being ported/polished. Please, please if anyone needs anything ported/polished (manifolds exhaust/intake, TGV's, throttle bodies, turbos etc...) give Socal Porting a shot. Top notch work at an even better price, I will have more pics posted of his work once he gets my turbo done. (you can also pm him on nasioc, his sn is wrxsubiemod)

We ended up using the KS Tech deletes rather than just tapping/plugging these






Throttle body



Pics of the turbo, EWG and other "goodies" will be up soon

Thank you, you'll have to check out his site/send him a message for pricing as I had 2 turbos, 2 sets of tgv's and 2 throttle bodies done. He does give a discount for doing packages though if you were interested.

It is the CS style front lip from N1. You can get it through HPT Motorsports, they are having a group buy on it over on 3gwrx
