cost of a stage 4 install?

If you've had this done by a shop -- installation of a turbo, fuel pump, and injectors -- how much did they charge?

That is also with putting in a new DP and taking off my old boost controller.

LOL! i hope the owner of the shop is your uncle or someone you know very well.. because you cant even get an up pipe installed for $125.. in most cases a stage for install will be in the 1k range.. you could get it done for less but most shops that know what they are doing wont change much less then 1k..

Good god, I say take that cash and buy some tools and do it yourself or with the help of friends.

The shop is in Racine Wisconsin. I am getting such a good deal because they are sponsoring me and I buy all my parts through them. They are trying to get into tuning the WRX. They are mainly dealing with Hondas and DSMs at this point. My buddy and I are their project WRX customers.

So you are basically letting them experiment with your car?

Sort of. They are really good mechanics so i am not worried about the proper install of parts. I am going to get my UTEC dyno tuned though. My buddy is going to let them road tune.

I do it for $250. That includes road tuning with a wideband O2 gauge.

Cosmo,
When you see a silver wrx pull up to your place thursday that will be me.
Just kidding. I am being charged $540 for the labor on injectors, fuel pump and turbo.
Let me give you my mechanics email so you can tell him how to do it cheeper.

I'll say... especially since it's the Cos! You could draw a big circle around Salem and that'd be true. Shoot, I'd come from Seattle except the price of gas just went up a penny so I'm over the line.

Thanks for doin' whut you do, Cosmo.

Well, I do it that cheap because I can. I'm not a mechanic for a living, and I'm not paying my bills by doing installs. I just like working on Subarus. I borrow a lift from a friend, so I don't have to pay for that. I already own all the tools I need, so I don't have to buy them. And, I take the wideband out of my car, so I don't have to rent one of those.

But, you are talking about a 6-7 hour job at least. If everything goes right, theoretically you can do it in 3 hours or so, but I have never had a single install that doesn't have a stuck bolt or something like that that needs extra attention. The most time consuming part is taking off the green brackets to pull the injectors. And, a FMIC requires grinding of the lower frame piece, and cutting of the bumper cover. So that takes a while as well.
