A much bigger IC, preferably a front mount, injectors, a tune, and of course a new transmission because you'll break your stock tranny in no time with that powerful a turbo.

That all depends on what kind of power you're looking to make. Also, what kind of psi do you want to be pushing cause if you're shooting for over 20 you're gonna want a new BOV. The EVO 16g and 18g turbos are really good for our subies, at least that seems to be a pretty consistent consensus.

+1 longshot, you will need injectors and a tune. I would also suggest a fmic and maybe an ewg with such a big turbo. Whether or not you need to remove anything you have already installed depends on if you go stock location 30R or rotated 30R.

What is your goal for the car? Peak numbers, big power? You state you want the GT30R, thats a pretty powerful turbo, but a little laggy especially running with the 2.0. Plus if you get the rotated your up and down have to be changed I thought cause of the new location of the turbo. There is a member, Lil Shoaf, that runs a gt30r. He has extensive work done to his car to include the engine and tranny. Look around and see what its going to cost you, and what your goal(s) is(are) and go from there.

That turbo is awesome just make sure you have money saved for all the things you might break. Especially like stated above the tranny, clutch, and other things. Not to mention I would definately think about going hydra ecu with that monster.

Ah, good point about the EM. A hydra or some sort of stand alone would definetely be good for such a setup.

A standalone ecu would be ideal, but is not a necessity. There are people out there that run 30R's on an AP's and utec's.

No, I waited awhile for rob to get back to me on when they would have some kits in stock...but he never did. So now i'm just going to take my money i had saved for power mods and get some ppg's, i figure the car will be more fun to drive. I am going to shoot him an email again, and ill let you know if i buy the kit.
