    Just bought some used Perrin EL Headers. Going to get a EBCS and an intake and retune. Not sure if I am going to upgrade the injectors yet :/

    Also I am pretty sure I am going to go with the Rota Titans.

    You should upgrade the injectors at this point.

    EL headers are vastly superior to the stock uel headers.

    I'd be more concerned about getting a wideband and keeping an eye on it.

    Unless the tuner pushes him under 11AFR, I wouldn't expect over 90% duty cycle. That being said, its not a bad upgrade regardless. From my reading, I'd jump all the way up to ID1000s. While I understand the value in injector matching... the quality of the ID1000s is fantastic compared to other injectors, even at the lower output from what I have seen.

    Missed that. My bad. I'd plan on injectors, as you suggested, regardless in the future. While the ones he has I think will be fine for now, he'll need them for any further upgrades. Also, it makes tuning a bit easier/safer when you have the headroom to calibrate the MAF safely (more of an issue if he did a turbo swap or something drastic).

    I don't plan on swapping the turbo. I'm actually planning on just running the ELH, ebcs and intake. No EWG. You think I'll run out of headroom on the injectors? What size injectors would you recommend going too? 750s?

    Brandon you have EL Headers right? What are you IDCs and are you on stock injectors? I don't believe the stock STI injectors are any bigger than the WRX injectors.

    I think you'll be okay as is, personally. Unless my piston rings are all cracked and I'm way down on power from what I should be... In which case you are screwed, haha.

    My IDCs are about 95% on a full throttle pull in cold weather. After I do my TGV deletes and hard inlet, I'm considering them a priority. This is a run where I was running a bit rich (around 10.9 or so - I normally aim for 11.1 or 11.2):



    Keep in mind, after about 5k RPM or so, the IDCs flatten off quickly with that stock snail.

    Your experience may differ. My car is kinda weird I've found for whatever reason. You'll just have to see.

    Thanks Brandon.

    I'm also hesitant on an intake. I'm worried my IATs are going to be much higher with an intake than without one and whatever intake I get the gains would be minimal because of this. It's hot and humid as fak down here right now

    I run a KSTech CAI. I'm not thrilled with it - the fitment was a bit off. I found slightly higher IDCs afterwards, however, which is a positive indication it helped.

    Keep in mind, even in florida, the air under the car will be colder than the air higher up. However, when it rains there, it pours. I had issues with my CAI picking up water after a car wash and messing with the MAF as soon as I hit boost. I had to get a filter sock to prevent it (I believe zax had a similar issue, actually). It would happen during heavy rain as well. If you go with a CAI... get the water repellent sock.

    If you have a wideband and don't mind doing the tuning (or having it done, in your case), I'd give the nod to either a CAI or a SRI. Personally, I'd say CAI. The only reason I normally advise not getting an intake is due to people not running a wb02. Given the price of the intake, compared to other upgrades at your point, you'd be kinda silly not to.

    Get the stock size MAF housing if you don't want a turbo swap. Even if you are hitting 4.5V, the difference between 4.5V and 5V is a huuuuge difference.

    I do have a WB02.

    Do you think a 73mm maf housing is too big?
