Time for at least an 16G or any of the VF Series turbo along with supporting mods.

i would go with the 18G followed by supporting mods, i have one now, it feels great just waiting to tune
better than my old VF39 turbo.
good luck on your turbo purchase.

You want the injectors and the appropriate tune for it all done as close to the same time as possible. So after your injector and turbo swap the only place I'd limp it to is the tuner. Don't forget your fuel pump, but those are cheap.

what about the cobb AP 16g map with the sti pinks is that good enough, because i have the AP and the fuel pump already, and well i know if i take it to a tuner i will get more power out of it but that shit is exspensive ,like 500 or so.

You can do all of that and not need injectors if you follow cobb's map. Which is pretty much a small 16G. A Big 16G or a EVOIII 16G will need bigger injectors and a custom tune.

Right, if you use Cobb's map, your mods have to be dead on with their map description.

Or you can contact Cobb and have a map made for your car. or you can contact another Tuning company that supports the Cobb AP.
