Hi all. I've been unable to post much, but between trips wanted to provide a brief update:
Final parts list installed:
Organic STi clutch
STi VF39 turbo
GrimmSpeed Up-pipe w/ Flex Section ceramic coated
Cobb Accessport v 2.0
Invidea hi-flow catted downpipe
Invidea G200 catback system w/ silencer
Cobb SF intake
Cobb Tuning Lightweight Main Pulley
HKS 71004-AF008 HKS SSQV BOV Kit (recirc)
TXS TMIC Kit
Walbro 255 Fuel Pump
Subaru platinum plugs
Deastchwerks 650cc injectors
The map being run is as suggested above for now:
VF39 turbo, STi TMIC, STi "Pink" 565cc injectors & Turboback exhaust using 93 octane
The mechanic checked out the car with all gauges/probes/meters and everything was within parameters using the above map. Nice idle, amazingly fast smooth acceleration, no backfiring or misfiring. AF and temps fine. Taking it moderately easy while driving until I can get a protune. Exhaust smells a bit rich, but no CELs or errors in Cobb datalogger.
The clutch had serious shudder issues first couple of days... now OK, but when decelerating in gear, I hear sandy grinding noise through a small part of the decel range. Having this checked out tomorrow.
More to come... just checking in.
