i have a couple of questions regarding my desired setup. right now i am stage 2 with a 3inch divorced wastegate dp via cobb ap. i want 300 torque. i think the best way to get this is with a big 16g evo iii and the supporting mods (injectors, fuel pump). I also want to run an external wastegate.
now for the questions
if i used a fmic, are there big gains over a big tmic? what else do i need for a 16g, i know i need a new up-pipe. if my dp is 3 inch divor wastegate, do i need to swicth to a 4 inch bellmouth?
lastly, is this all work i can do myself, and then bring to a tuner to get tuned. how hard is the install. if i wont be able to, does anyone know how much a shop would charge to do this kind of job?
in my personal humble opinion , running a external wastegate wont be overkill for a big 16G.but if you really intend to , get something around 38mm.
if you want torque and responsiveness, i would suggest sticking to 3" bellmouth , upgrade your injectors to something like the sti 550cc ,walboro 255 fuel pump,stick to a top mount but something reasonably larger than the STI( aps would be a good choice ) and get your car tuned/tuned again.
