What's up guys. The modding bug has hit me hard and I have my list made for what I want. I'll post everything I can think off the top of my head.
Turbo-Blouch Evo III TD05H-16G
Top mount-Perrin top mount
Injectors- 850-1000cc- not sure of brand
Fuel pump- not sure yet ( what do you think)
Downpipe- helix catted downpipe
Cat back- Borla xr1 3 inch
Piping- mishomoto intercooler piping
Cobb- intake plus box
Ecbs- Perrin electronic boost
Cobb access port.
Cobb front and rear sway bars.
04 Sti gold bbs
Stri guages with clock 3 guage pod
Will be tuned at psi Proformance in pa.
Let me know what you guys think of my future build and if I'm missing anything.
Another question is how doyou think the trans will hold up and engine internals with the mods.
I'll just go with 750cc injectors. I'm either getting the 16g turbo or a 20g my buddy has for sale. And mild boost and whatever power I come out with I'll be fine with. It's a 20g IHV he says but I can't find anything on that. So I'm not really sure what brand it is once I find it I'll post it up.
How many miles are on your engine and how well was it maintained? The reason I ask is because upgrading the turbo might end up being somewhat of a deathblow. My engine was very well maintained for the entire life of the vehicle, but when I upgraded to Blouch's 20G turbo at about 94k, it only lasted another 3k before it needed to be rebuilt (cracked a piston, lost compression in two cylinders, sprayed oil all over the engine bay, tons of smoke billowed out of the exhaust...). Also, 350 hp might be attainable at the crank with your setup, but probably not at the wheels. I have a very similar setup to what you've listed and I'm only making 365 at the wheels with some extra goodies (check out my profile for my current mod list). Also, keep in mind that the stock WRX 5 speed trans doesn't have extremely strong gears and if you bump the power up, you risk breaking those too. By all means though, mod with confidence, but just keep that stuff in the back of your mind
Yeah I realized that 350 with what I was planning on buying was a bit high do whatever I come out with is fine with me. Motor has 102k all maintance is up to date. Timing, waterpump, tensioner, all belts, plugs,... Wasn't planning on going super high with boost between 14-17. I know that if I go to high it'll blow something. Just want to be a little faster then it is now.
I shall. Should all come together in the next couple months. Anybody have an idea what power I'll be making to the wheels with vf43, Perrin too mount, tgv
Delete, cobb intake with box, 650injectors, and helix catted downpipe and some 3 inch cat back boost between 16-18
