    updated post #2 with current Mods - would love your thoughts on the EBCs and TMIC at stage 2. Essentially, not look for 400hp. This is my DD, i have a 500+hp machine. Also not looking to upgrade any internals etc. Essentially wanting to get more out of my set up is all...

    updating for photos as well...

    The BCS will allow for better boost control. An MBC provides even better control, and when used in conjunction with a BCS, is the best of both worlds.

    A TMIC will allow for faster spool, and more power everywhere in the RPM range, when properly accounted for.

    If you're going in for a custom reflash already, both would be worthwhile if you can swing it. Also consider replacing the plastic valve with something like the Forge or Tial recirc units.

    Thought they really only started to fail around 20psi?

    The OE valves have leaked at lower levels on the '08+ than the '02-'07 ones. Whether or not it'll be an issue for the OP, who knows, but it'd be good to have a replacement handy if needed (if not, sell the part to recoup as much as possible). A BPV swap is a 5 minute ordeal, which is better than having to get a touch-up tune down the line.

    ok. that makes sense. Seems the 08+ have gone a cheaper route on the BPV. now here is a question... i began to do some research and found some information on the NASIOC

    Blow Off Valve FAQ: Read if you are thinking of buying one! - NASIOC

    if you scroll down a bit, Unabomber seems to indicate that the 08+ are only able to hold 17PSI. My car is tuned at stage 2 and i am touching 19. am i not holding that on to that extra 2PSI?

    Some people have issues with the OE valve leaking, some don't. When you go for a custom tune, I would have one handy in case it's needed.

    Got some good driving timing logged with these new bushings.

    I imagine that on their own they make a huge difference. The combo of pitch stop + KBSTS + front and rear bushings has really improved what I feel is one of the weak spots on this car. For roughly the cost;

    $100 bushings
    $100 STS
    $100 PS

    you can virtually nullify a weak spot in this car. (the 5MT is ok but it shifts like a school bus)

    I read somewhere that changing the bushings would creat a tighter, maybe even more concerted shift. I think a better description is that it's made it more precise.

    There is 0 shift "slop" when i shift. There is definitely more NVH. Not great increased. but again like the steering bushings, this is a noticeable, worthwhile upgrade.
