Im sure I forgot something but that about sums it up. I also am running e85 and LOVING IT.

Basically just Posting about a update on my car and to see what everyone thought about it!!!:)

but Im also looking into getting a bigger turbo/intercooler setup as my next upgrade and was wondering what would be my best bang for buck setup. I don't want ebay cheap but I don't want to spend a ton either. Possible Upgrade something else first???

Start port n polishing your intake manifold, exhaust mani and throttle body....

Why do you have the big MAF on there with the stock charger ? Just wondering.

And ditch the parkbench :)

Can't see your pic (work filters)

I've got an FP Green and APS TMIC I'll sell ya! but it sounds like you've pretty much built an STi

02WRXbugeye 09-23-2010 03:45 PM

I got the MAF for 50 bucks. thats the only reason I put it on. and it was actually 50 bucks of a trade. I LOVE MY PARKBENCH!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):) I want the roof spoiler as well if anyone has one:)

02WRXbugeye 09-23-2010 03:45 PM

how much for the turbo/intercooler!! and I wanna see a pic of your supra!!! I used to have one.

Damn, that's a lot of work to convert a car. You're just missing the small bits of the STI like all the bushings/suspension bits and the underbody diffuser. Stuff like that.

Small question...did you not upgrade your fuel pump or just not list it in the OP?

Still has the Ej255 (not the EJ257 of he STI), so depending on how big of a turbo you want, maybe start building on the engine.

I could do 1200+ shipping...and theres a pic of it floating around here somewhere...but I'll just repost it

SEXY SUPRA. i will let you know on the turbo. I do have a fuel pump. wallbro. I just forgot to post that. My idea on building the motor was... I would get the bigger turbo and IC and run that until my motor started giving out. I just figure I could get the power gains first and my motor would last long enough to save up to build the motor. good idea? bad?

pzr2874 09-24-2010 02:13 PM

Sounds about what everyone else does.... lol

Build the motor first, cheaper in the long run.

turmic 09-27-2010 09:34 AM

Plus you won't be stranded on the side of the highway. LOL. Good call btw, Josh.

Bump from the dead (if this member is even still around) but how did you get your stock axles to work with the 04' 6-spd trans? Were you able to keep your stock drive shaft?

psinuse 09-13-2011 01:31 PM

You have to swap everything over from the STi. Axles, brakes the whole 9 yards.

BoostinChick 09-13-2011 01:37 PM

I have read that you didn't have to necessarily swap the axles. That you could just swap the seals/stubs? Something along those lines...

Why would I need to swap the brakes?
