Please Help ASAP
Hey guys, I currently live in Honduras Central America, which means that the closest tuner shop or any aftermarket car parts shop is a million-gazillion miles away. Luckily, I've been blessed with the opportunity of going to the U.S. (Delaware) but just for a few day (business meeting). So, I'm kindly asking for forgiveness (of not doing research, but hey I'm leaving in two days!) and if you could tell me what would be the best turbo to buy for my 06 wrx, I have the FP Green in mind, since it's a bolt-on and pretty much reads the numbers that I want to achieve. But if you could suggest of any better bolt-on turbo, be my guest. And about the FP Green, if I choose the 8 cm housing (which I'm thinking is the best), will I have to do some kind of custom fitment to something that it is attached to (like downpipe, uppipe)? And what is better? External Wastegate (is it user-friendly?) or Internal Wastegate (will it restrict me of producing more power?) Also, a friend of mine is selling an APS SR55, what do you think? Is it better than the FP Green? Or is it the other way around?
For the turbo upgrade, I will only be putting on for now... Walbro Fuel Pump, SMC Alcohol Injection Kit, 800 cc Injectors, APS or Perrin 3" Inlet (Don't have it yet, but I guess I will have to buy it), TurboXS 3" Catless Turbo Back Exhaust, TurboSmart E-Boost 2; but sincerely, won't have the money of buying a bigger TMIC nor a FMIC. I'm guessing some of you sooner or later will tell me "Say goodbye to your tranny" but that's a whole another story, so don't worry about and let us just discuss about the engine.
Any opinions are enormously appreciated, and if you could tell me where to buy it even more, if you tell me where I can buy this things in Delaware then I'd be in debt with you for the rest of my life. But if not, do you know of any webpage other than FP, that sells the Green turbo lower than them ($1,399.00) Thanks in advance.
