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?

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.

## 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

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.
