What part of town are you? I'm in the Tualatin area.
This is a discussion on 2002 wrx bugeye build! First build. within the Builds forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; What part of town are you? I'm in the Tualatin area....
good build thread so far. Im really jealous of you guys with the larger hood scoop on the bugeye. mine is so damn small, I hate it.
Give Zombies the Vote
Im in SE portland. tualitin is really close though.Thats where my tuners shop is. We should meet up soon. And Phobic: Give it time, You can find alot of deals on hood scoops. I have the 02 JDM sti hood scoop that i see on alot of other bugeyes. Nice thing is these cars ( for being performance sport cars) last quite awhile as long as you take care of them. Just start small, set a goal, and do whatev you need to do to make it how you want it.

Consider running a Hybrid boost control instead of JUST an MBC.
2015 CWP WRX STi on order ... But how did I get roped back into an EJ motor?!

So you retain the ability to cut boost in situations the ECU needs to. So you have compensations for things like temp. So you can fix PTFB by ramping up WGDC based on throttle angle. All this while maintaining the MBC as the boost control at WOT. All positives, with the only negative being slightly more cost (GM solenoid is like $30).Originally Posted by Jables_WRX_Junki

Thanks for the suggestion. Ill look into this
Cool thanks man, appreciate it. Yeah id like to get a vf39 here soon. But sooo many different turbos. Just seems like the most reliable.
When do you want that heat shield, BTW? If you're ever in the Tualatin/Tigard area in the middle of the day, I could meet you over my lunchbreak or something.
Maybe tomorrow? finish up wiring my sound system after work
I wouldn't say the VF39 is any more reliable than any other quality made turbo. The only thing it really has going for it is you can get them used dirt cheap. If you're buying new there are better options out there.
yeah for sure. would like to go 20g eventually but im going to sell this bugeye and upgrade to and 07 sti.
hey Rambo, i just realized that the stock heatshield will not fit since i have an after market DP.
