Greetings all. I have a question about packages or all in one kits as i call them. I was checking out a few sites to do some shopping for my 05'WRX and ran into a site that sold package deals. I thought it to be cool, but of all the threads i've read here i didn't see any talk of these kits. Why is that? To costly at first? Not trust worthy? Heres an example;
(TurboXS UTEC Computer, IHI VF30 Turbocharger, TurboXS SS Turbo Back Exhaust, TurboXS Catless Uppipe, Larger 520cc Fuel Injectors, Larger 255 ltr Fuel Pump) for $3950
Yea, you can find these parts cheaper if you looked but is this a good combo? The ad proclaims: 273.8 whp @ 6047 rpm @ 17.0 psi / 250.1 ft/ibs @ 4802 rpm @ 17.3 psi.
So is this a okay setup? Fill me in and enlighten me.
I was wondering what the highest psi you can set with a stock turbo. Because i had a manual boost controller and i just got my car dyno and it read 18 psi the mechanic said i was crazy for setting it that high and he said i should lower it to 14. I got a full APS turbo back exhaust, APS Cold air intake, Perrin TMIC
Yeah, you really don't want to have your stock turbo that high. If you want to mess with more boost on the stock turbo, get an up-pipe. It will take your boost up 1lb, that's about as far as you want to go with that turbo. And MBC tend to mess things up with this car so be careful.
Uppipe replacement has nothing to do with boost pressure. A bellmouth or divorced wastegate downpipe however raises boost by 1-1.5 psi. The stock turbo loses efficency at anything above 17 psi, and that 17 psi is with added fuel and adjusted timing.
