there arent many E85 pumps around here. theres 1 pump in down town but thats all i know of. i can get 93 no problem. my stock turbo has shaft play and im pretty sure its gona go out sometime soon. this is why im trying to narrow down a turbo that will provide me the best power and reliablity with good spool up.
thing is ive asked around and explained my goals for the car and i get people telling me to get a blouch turbo, an fp turbo, an amr t60r, and a gt3076r, but never give me the full reasons as to why this turbo is better for such and such reason because blah blah blah. apparently the stock sti block cant hold much power, yet some say its all about the tune. i for sure am never gona run a gt35r on the stock block cause thats just stupid. yet i dont wana shell out money for a turbo that is slightly larger than the stock snail just for 20whp. thats a waste of money.
ima just go with kirt and get my self a blouch dom. 2.0xt or 2.5xt, headers, ewg, fmic, 740cc injectors and just call it a day. im tired of being swayed this way or the other, or playing it way to safe. im not saying im gona crank up the boost to 30psi for the sake of power and disregard the communities warnings, but id rather have a hard pulling, fast spooling turbo that will allow me to put more power down in the future if i decided to build my motor out. or will allow me to have enough power at a safe level that will satisfy my goals. forget fp, atp, aps, gt30-71-76r, gt35r, 6262, gt 49-52. ima stick with blouch get a proper tune and be happy knowing i made the right decision. cause in reality i have a brand new car. new engine with less than 10k and a fresh tranny with less than 4k. so i intend to enjoy this beast as long as i can.
