My soon to be setup
 
So I have an 06WRX and I am about to start buying parts for it starting this weekend:D Here is a list of what I am going to buy this weekend. I know I am spending a lot but hey it has to be done.

-Blouch 20g XT 10cm
-FMIC (ssautochrome)
- EWG with Tial 38mm vband
-APv2
-Invidia dp v2
-1000 cc injectors
-fuel pump
-turbo blanket

I already have a cbe and spt intake. I am still trying to decide on what bov and turbo inlet to get. I will be ordering these parts this weekend like I said and hopefully get them installed asap, then it will be on for a tune for both 93 and e85:)

don't buy that shit FMIC, a good top mount like a Perrin or Turbo XS will do better

dheim96 02-02-2011 06:42 PM

It's the same as the turboxs fmic. I'm doing fmic because in case i decide to go roared in the future I won't have to worry about selling my top mount. I take the few hundred rmp loss.

You REALLY need a down pipe also, and more than likely a new intake also. And yes the ssautocrap is LIKE the TurboXS in design/theory, but its not the same quality, at least not the ones I have seen in person. It might work out, it might not, but you have been cautioned.

basco 02-02-2011 10:25 PM

Josh he has a DP listed

and OP I've had personal experience tuning cars with SSAC and TXS FMIC's and yes they may look the same but they are no means the same performance wise on average the SSAC has heat soaked 2~3 psi quicker than the TXS in my experience, and if you plan on maxing the turbo on E85 you might want to step up to 1200cc injectors, 1000cc may do it but you'll be seeing damn near 100% IDCs

It's a copy of the design but it's not the "same".

In addition the SPT intake will need to be replaced with better and you're gonna need a boatload more parts that what you listed.

I see that now, Matt, thanks. My bad OP.

How do you figure I will need a boatload more parts? This is a solid start for a setup.

Keyword is [I]start[/I]. It's not a [I]complete [/I]setup. Where are your motor mounts? Clutch and flywheel? Brake and suspension upgrades?

I am very aware of what I need for my car. But like most people I don't have 15k to drop on it from the start.

Then you either need to hold off on purchasing or installing until you have enough.

dheim96 02-04-2011 05:18 PM

I have enough to install on my car. Thanks for the concern but I think I'm ok.

brfatal 02-04-2011 06:16 PM

Well, that is your own misconception ;)

Hondafan 02-04-2011 06:21 PM

Geez. It's not like the OP said, "Okay, I have everything to install on my car to be everything anybody ever wanted." He has a list of parts he wants to install on his car. I haven't replaced my sways, brakes, springs, TMIC, turbo, injectors, etc. Not everyone does everything at once. In fact, most people do a couple things at once. He's not saying he has the complete list for his car. Just that he has those parts for his car. It sounds exciting. Have fun with it and let us know how it goes.

basco 02-04-2011 07:46 PM

I'm a perfect example, it took me damn near 6 years to get my car to the state it's in now
