Maybe a fuel pump to be safe. Not sure on the map selection though never delt much with the UTEC.

for sake of safety a catless up pipe you dont want chunks of cat in that nice new turbo!!!!!!!!!! i just ordered a 16 g as well i hear the lag is minimal and theres a good mid to topend punch that you dont see with the vf34.....

Correct me if i am wrong. However, i thought that the 2.5l wrx's flowed too much air for the 16g.

It's bigger than the stocker..which doesn't flow enough for a 2.0L.

16g is just as big as a vf34 so no you are not right. Stock 06 Sti is vf39 and Stock 07 vf43. But if it was me I would go with some thing bigger than a 16g with 2.5. Maybe 18g or 20g if you are lookin into g series turbo.

You should get a fuel pump, but it sounds like you're a bit confused about the way UTEC's maps work. When you are asking which map to choose, 1-5, there are not pre-loaded maps on there. They are open spots for you to transfer a map to. In other words, you could have the same map for all 5 spots if you so desired. You have to download a basemap from their website and upload it yourself via PC. Since you have a 16g, you'll have to email them and ask for one since they don't have an 16g map listed. For temporary purposes, you should be okay with the VF34 map, just don't lay on it.
