    Do you have the intake installed without a tune?

    I'd strongly urge you to pass on the Prosport WBO2 gauge (any Prosport gauge, for that matter, as they aren't very accurate/reliable). You may not be able to use it to datalog, so it wouldn't be as useful as just opting for the UEGO/LC-1 (which aren't that much more expensive).

    330-350whp on pump gas is going to require a turbo upgrade.

    I agree. I hate my prosport gauges. My wideband is malfunctioning and prosport says it's either my sensor or the harness somehow got damaged...I say it's just the dumbass gauge.

    Good to know. I have heard good and bad things about prosport. However, I have also been looking into defi gauges. What do you guys think of those? And I know 330+ whp is aiming a little high, but I think with this setup and the ewg, I should easily be over 300 with a good tune on 93 and 20 psi.

    I'll add that 90% of the things I have heard about prosport gauges are bad though.

    Nice build plans.

    Defi gauges are great, but I don't think they make an A/F gauge (I believe anyway). I have an AEM (UEGO) gauge and I love it.

    A few things were added to my list. Lol, seems like the list will never end. Might have to hit the lottery at this point! But anyway, forgot about a front lip, def putting one of those on in the spring also. Plus, I did not know these even existed, but the grimmspeed wastegate bracket to block off the turbo's internal wastegate for the external wastegate upgrade. Lmao, I cannot believe I did not know they made these. Good thing I noticed it before I had my shop weld it shut in the future.

    Also, added an oil pressure gauge. I already have a boost gauge, and when adding the DP with the AFR gauge i figured I would just get the perrin steering cloumn pods and add one. I think that oil pressure is the next most important gauge to run. So, i added it too.

    Stay tuned, before too long some of these parts should be rolling in! Can't wait to start modding.

    UPDATE. Well I ordered and installed the Grimmspeed license plate relocater. Love it, i think it really cleans up the front end and adds a little bit of sportiness to the overall look of the car. Also on order is the Perrin front license plate delete plate. Only thing I think i might change is to take off the plastic plate cover.

    **Thoughts about the Grimmspeed relocater- It truly is awesome IMO. The build quality is excellent, and the ability to move it around in dozens of ways to customize the look is great. I HIGHLY recommend this to anyone thinking about getting one! Here's a pic:

    Thanks guys! It's not much. But its inching its way there. Dont have the money right now for any of the big mods (exhaust, AP, etc.) So I figured I would start adding the little things that dont cost alot like the relocater, front tag delete, and so on to get it looking close to where I want it before spring time gets here and I go stage 2. I will continue to update everything as I go. Even the small things. Next on the list, put on the perrin front tag delete plate, and order the blacked out SE wrx side badges.
