just a quick up date: since i got my turbo, i now have an avo turbo inlet, grimmspeed up pipe, turbo blanket, and 880cc injectors. now im just waiting on a bit more cash so i can purchase the grimmspeed AOS and finally be done. ill be sure to post a full write up with some install pics, as well as a dyno write up when i get the chance.

Horrible news: cylinder 4 failed the compression test and went to hell. they tuner said he cant/wont tune it cause its pointless. they went in depth and said they are gona need to get a new short block in and quoted me $7500 for a new block + install and labor. F**K that noise. went to IIR and asked josh how much a new sti short block with forged internals were. $2645. gona jump on that and get it at the end of the month. also i decided that i cant make good power with what i got, so im gona take off all the turbo bits and sell them and go rotated. I was so mad this afternoon, but after thinking about it and talking to my original tuner i have a solid game plan and i should have all my NEW new goodies in a couple months. in the mean time i cant drive my STi because it wont idle. it just shuts off. so its gona be in the garage collecting dust until i can get all this stuff saved up for. Its just stuff like this that just makes me want to throw in the towel and just sell it and forget about the whole performance car scene, but ill really think about it and remind my self of the times i was in the protege and realize i can never do that crap again.

Yeah....so you're just going to take the big splash into the rotated world? My next step would either be rotated or slow spooling stock location. Either way I would have a laggy turbo...well, more laggy than what I have now. Which isn't that bad in my opinion.

ill be going with a vigilant motor sports oem sti short block with forged rods and cp pistons, stock machined heads, gsc stage 2 cams, springs and retainers, perrin rotated gtx3076r with .82 hot side, turbo xs rotated turbo intercooler piping, ngk step colder plugs, intake and exhaust valves...maybe, act heavy duty street clutch with street light fly wheel, and perrin equal length headers. all of this tuned should yield me around 490whp..i hope.
