20g turbo question?
I just got a 20 g turbo from a friend of mine, says it has about 1500 hundred miles on it. What all do I need to do to my car before I can put it on? What can I use to clean the turbo up a little? Its got some coolant residue on it. Thanks a bunch

you'd need an up-pipe, downpipe, 700cc or better fuel injectors, upgraded fuel pump, upgraded intercooler, tune etc.

And pray the tranny doesn't go boom.

The tranny will be fine depending on driving habits. But like Matt suggested all those parts, plus a 3 port BCS, and maybe, just maybe an intake. Check out my profile for a parts run down, I run a 20G and love it.

You're nowhere near 20G ready. Aside from supporting mods (intake, downpipe, intercooler, injectors, fuel pump, up-pipe, motor mounts, clutch, and suspension and brakes that can support this power.) being an issue, a 20G is going to be the deathblow to not only your transmission but your engine as well.

True enough, but he is more likely to break it attempting a 3rd gear pull than a 1st gear launch with that amount of power.

Complete truth here!...when my trans blew it was third gear that broke (although I rarely launched on the stock trans/green combo)

I have an 02 wrx and i have all the supporting mods for 20g but the tranny is my most fear what would you gies suggest I move to so I dont break anything

There are plenty of options out there. Whats your budget? Theres the STI 6-spd, then a plethora of 5spd options (PPG, Par, Albins, RA, LGT gears, MFactory, DS1....and maybe some more). My car just got an Albins gearset put in 1-5 helical cut, stock ratio. It will hold my 20G and then some (the shop said, and from my research seems adequate). But I havent got to drive the car since the build.
