Guages can break too.

The turbo's are easy enough to get out. Is there shaft play side to side, or in & out? Does the shaft spin easily? You should be able to spin it & it will continue to spin...

^^ Exactly. 20 is the most you can go, I've had them personally & I never went above 14 or so. Just because something is capable of a certain benchmark doesn't mean you want to push it to that...

I'm curious too, why did you remove the tune it had on it?

The car has to be tuned for the parts it has in it.

As said above, not hard to do. But in your area, unless this is not your DD, it's not ideal for sealing purposes & seen them fail many times in areas like yours as well.

It's DAMNED sexy.

The car is also no joke. I've driven STI's with a bonafide 450whp...but this thing, this thing is an animal.

It feels a bit like my neighbors Chevelle with the 454 in (You...

Jkas - It's not a DD. Wasn't built to be one, won't be used as one. Just a fast street car for fun driving. Will never be dragged or tracked. Just don't want an obnoxiously loud car around town.

Noob to high HP questions...600+

Will be picking up an STI in the next few days that does 618 to the wheels, but a measly 550 currently. Is it normal when starting a car like this to have to feather the gas pedal for 20 seconds or...

Forgot to mention, while this is being done, do a new oil pump, water pump, t-stat & timing belt kit. It's not a ton of money, & now is a good time to do it.

+ whatever on the BOV.

Are these now 6 speeds? I read the write up, but the twin scroll is all that stuck in my head.

One thing I would do though, is consider what you are going to spend on all...

Didn't notice it pointed out, but having the original ECU to go back to isn't going to help you. Unless you are going to take everything off & go back to factory.

Wow...

I was thinking maybe all of it could sell for $500. That is good news as I don't even like those seats. The interior is just too hard on the eyes.

How much does a clean STI interior go for?

I'm sorry if this is the wrong forum, I didn't see another one. But I'm on seizure medication that often makes my brain foggy so if I missed it point it out & I'll move it. I figured the Newbie forum...
