05 wrx stage 2 upgrade advise
aloha! i am planning large upgrade of my wrx and have been trying to figure out what exactly i need to get to make it all run smooth. my problem is that every thread i read says that after modding that the car needs to get a full professional tune, and i live on the big island of hawaii and there is not a single dyno for an all wheel drive car on the island.
i am looking to get around 300whp if possible anything more is a bonus
this is my daily driver and i am not racing. i do however drive off road and like rally style performance.
i have focused mainly on suspension and handling and am now ready to hit the engine.
i currently have:
full king raising springs with adjustable agx struts and spacers
full aluminum under armor skid plates
multiple under body sway bars
godspeed lateral bars and trailing arms
forged aluminum rally rims with light truck all terrain tires
short ram air intake
planning on getting:
full cobb stage 2 package
all silicone hoses
lightweight aluminum pulley kit
650cc deutchworks injectors and dw200 255lph fuel pump
and i am having trouble deciding on a good turbo to use
been leaning toward the blouch 16g or 18g
or possibly a used sti turbo if i can locate one
i know already to stay away from the cheaply made china turbos all over ebay
but i would like some opinions from others that have done this and recommendations of what to look for or things i may have overlooked and need to get along with the rest. the big thing is that i have no pro tuners available in my area.
