The stock injectors are tiny. You can max them out with the stock turbo. I'd wager without injector upgrades and a turbo that big you'll make less torque than a stage 2 wrx would. It's really a required upgrade to use that turbo effectively. You'll also need a TMIC or else you'll limit horribly on the top end as well.

Yes, throwing a big turbo on without enough fuel and without enough cooling can actually reduce your performance.

+1 to what Mosc said. Look for at least 06-07 injectors for that turbo and a used STI TMIC, that should be a decent start for that setup.

Why even bother installing a bigger turbo then?

clord05wrx 08-25-2009 09:12 AM

The wastegate on the stock turbo went so instead of just getting the wastegate then doing a turbo later anyway I decided just to do the turbo. Ill now be looking into some injectors and the STi intercooler.

I would recommend at least 650cc for any 16G unless it was the standard one.

phatmike0704 08-28-2009 05:12 PM

## gonna be runnin low psi with the stockers. if ## not gonna beat or race i guess u could do them but that juat defies the point of gettin a bigger turbo loll. im runnin b16g myslf but stock tmic. i dont feel much lag at high rpm since im at 13 psi but i dont spool till like 3000rpm. if u on a budget, grab an ebay tmic. ther huge but u need to extension for the y pipe. im sellin an ebay tmic 24x12x4.5 and i extended the y pipe to fit. let me no if ## interested. its basically brand new. 100miles on it

mosc 08-28-2009 08:07 PM

If you have stock injectors and stock TMIC, the best thing you can do is leave the stock turbo in there. "Upgrading" is counter-productive. Leave the 16G on the shelf until you can afford some more parts.

Yea for real. Turbo's require all the supporting mods to help it run efficiently.

clord05wrx 08-29-2009 10:58 AM

Should have the STi intercooler soon and going to get the injectors too. Also getting rid of my bov and going with the perrin recirc since when I bought my car used it had a bov on it and I dont have a stock one to put back on
