    Drews' Build Thread

    So I know you guys have long awaited me to put this up so here it is. I'm going to get better pictures soon because it was kind of dark when I tried to take these and they didn't turn out so great. But the car is all dried off, the interior has been replaced and it's running stronger than ever. I'll start out with my list of mods.

    Engine/Power:
    Perrin CAI Big MAF
    APR 3" Hard Inlet
    Force Performance HTA68 Turbo PnP'd and coated by Grimmspeed
    Grimmspeed coated 44mm wastegate up-pipe
    Tial 44mm wastegate
    Grimmspeed PnP'd and coated Intake Manifold
    Grimmspeed PnP'd and caoted TGV Deletes
    Grimmspeed PnP'd and coated Throttle Body
    Grimmspeed Coated AP Headers
    3mm Phenolic Spacers
    Perrin FMIC
    Turbo XS BOV
    APS 3" TBE
    DW 850CC Injectors
    Torque Solution Air Pump Delete


    Suspention/Wheels:
    Tein Monoflex Coilovers w/EDFC
    Black 18x8 OZ Ultraleggeras running KDW 2s

    Interior:
    Ver4 JDM STi interior
    DefiLink II Gauges: Boost, Oil Pressure, Oil Temp, Water Temp, Innovate WB02.

    Driveline:
    PPGs
    Cobb short shifter
    Cobb shifter bushings front and rear
    Torque Solution Transmission mount
    Whiteline Rear Subframe Lockdown bolts
    Beatrush Rear Diff Lockdown Bar
    Beatrush Forged Pitch Stop
    Torque Solutions Motor Mounts
    DRT Solutions Skid Plate

    After all is said and done it took me about 2 months to get everything put together. I kept running into snags like not getting the studs with my up-pipe or them sending off the wrong PnP'd exhaust manifolds. But they helped me get the issues resolved quickly.

    More pictures to come when I get a chance.

    It's all wet.

    There's a surprise!

    Glad to see everything is coming along. How's the HTA68? I'm thinking about going down that street with a hybrid build...

    Well the Perrin FMIC and I'm going to paint the headlights. Soundsystem is also in the works.

    Dude, the turbo is AWESOME. Not only does it make power but it spools fast. I'm hitting full boost at 3200 rpms. Of course my PnP and coating helps out a lot with that, but lag is more or less non existant.

    yeah I've heard that it spools as quickly as the EVOIII 16G with more top end.

    Are you still running the stock injectors with that turbo? I am just thinking of getting this turbo too eventually...I don't know if I want to though before I beef up my transmission.

    Is the turbo pretty much plug and play....as in do I need to modify anything to get it to work on my 06 WRX TR? I thought I read somewhere that I may need to....

    I think Drews bought Deatschwerks if I recall...but its a relatively larger turbo compared to even a stock VF39/43 STI turbo (flows similarish to a 20G)...so I would imagine you'd have to upgrade at least to 750s or so just so you aren't maxing out the duty cycle.
