Sorry, I am getting a BCS. Forgot to add that. I was talking to Jorge at P&L....I cant remember the brand off hand but, he is getting me the one he prefers to tune with. He said that the turbo is up to me (what I want out of the car). I drive it as a DD in the summer, except in the rain (not being anal, but I have another car so why get the rex dirty). I just want something that will be fun. I hate to put numbers on things but I was thinking maybe 320whp. I would like to get the car to that point..... lately I have been focused on tires/suspension. I also want it to be safe and reliable. It only has 25k thanks to being stored every winter but one. I just don't want to slap on a huge turbo and have the tranny blow out and not be able to enjoy the car this summer. I am getting married in May and cant afford the $4,500 STI tranny swap until next year. That being said, I do not shift the car hard. All the posts on here and nasioc about wrx 5spds have me paranoid I guess.
Glad the fuel injectors were brought up. What turbo can I safely run on my stock ones without going 100% on the IDCs? Remember this is an 07, im told that they are fairly large injectors. This is a question for my tuner I guess, but any insight is appreciated so I can start weighing my options. Perhaps I should just get my stockers reworked? Im looking for cost-effective, safe solutions that will yield the most gains. The turbo I was looking at is a EVO III.
