06 WRX w/Meth questions
 
Hey im in a funny situation but we will see how it works out.

I have a 06 WRX

-Cobb Stage 2
- Aquamist HFS-5
- Turbo Smart E Boost2
- APS Equal Length Headers
- Headers to Exhaust are coated and wrapped.
- Perrin High Flow Filter



Yep....

Thats all.

It will be an interesting combination

Any recommendations

Im wondering what issues i will get with running such a small turbo

On were i could find a map for this?
Anyone even done this before?

haha thanks!

p.s. i haven't install the aquamist kit and i also have a APS 70mm intake that im debating on installing? What u think? Maybe some injectors? I have a 255lt Fuel Pump on the way! :)

you would need a custom tune, and similar setup just not on a stock turbo.

meth kits without ECU saveguads are dangerous IMHO.

Also, that intake is not really good for your car, especially if it's not tuned for.

Your tranny could be fine if you didnt beat on it like you were trying to break it. Just drive and maintain it properly and you will be alrite. People have broken trannies at stock power before.

Mosc can you please explain "Ecu safe guards" ? :(

the stock ECU is not set up to handle meth injection. You can tune for it but it's not going to magically be aware when the thing runs out or stops functioning. It's just going to knock away thinking you're effectively running much higher octane than you really are. Stand alone ECUs like the hydra are more complex and designed for such things. When they detect a problem, they can prevent your engine from blowing itself up.
