    nopistons93 2011 SWP hatch build thread - dyno inside







    Well now that I've started off with some serious interest in modding, I've decided to start a build thread.

    Current condition of car as of today:

    - 19,XXX miles
    - Bought in OCT2011 with 2 miles on the car fresh off the truck from the factory to the dealer


    DYNO from 4-Jan-14

    Tuned at AKUMA Motorsports in Amboy, NJ by John.

    As of this date I have installed the following modifications to my car:

    - TurboXS TBE (heat wrapped DP with mixture of XL and stock hangers to get desired length and drop, link to install thread 2011 WRX Hatch TurboXS Turboback Exhaust install)
    - Process West TMIC
    - AEM CAI
    - Perrin turbo heat shield (black)
    - STi transmission mount
    - Kartboy shifter bushings
    - Cobb AP running an Akuma Protune
    - Boost gauge with custom made A-pillar single pod (link to install thread 2011 SWP Hatch boost gauge install)
    - GoFastBits BPV
    - ID1000's
    - Deatschwerks 65C fuel pump
    - Kartboy STS
    - Lamin-X yellow fogs
    - STi lighting kit
    - Grimmspeed Rad Shroud
    - Perrin Pre-filter for AEM intake (water repulsion)


    The parts that I have sitting aside waiting for install/tune are as follows:

    - Lighting overlays for rear tails

    My planned modifications that are not yet financed are as follows:

    - Innovate MTX-L and MTX-D gauges
    - SMY Cluster
    - Front lip and side skirts
    - Rear lip
    - more bushings for random spots
    - springs/shocks
    - Interior upgrades (shift knob, boot, etc)

    That should take my car to the level I want for a while.

    That's going to be a nice solid setup!

    Also pretty similar to what I'd like to do, minus the meth.

    I'd like to be a pioneer of meth on a basic build. I've seen a lot of major builds with meth but I haven't really seen the VF52 supporting mod meth setup on too many 11 hatches.

    You're not going to...

    Most people, when given the opportunity, choose E85 > Pump/Meth because of the reliability (one less system to fail) and cost (injectors are cheaper than a meth kit).

    That said, there is nothing really to pioneer. You have higher octane gas, you're able to run a more aggressive tune with the same "safety margin".

    Currently have a boost leak above 16 psi. Sounds like it is coming from the elbow on the compressor side. Ordered t-bolt clamps and will get them on during the week. Hopefully that will sure the "whistle" sound I am hearing at higher boost pressures. Other than that, setup is good so far. Boost is ~19.0 psi. Map calls for 18.5 so I might try to change to the HWG map. Thoughts?

    If the map calls for 18.5psi and you're seeing 19...I wouldn't go to the HWG...it'd raise your WDCs, thus raising your boost even higher...

    Isn't that within the allowable range for boost? Also, is that the peak on the accessport display or in a data log? I know there was a discrepancy between those two when I data logged.

    Good catch, LWG is what I mean to say. I would rather be a bit under 18.5 than over.

    I talked to the guys at Akuma Motorsports today and the guy recommended doing TGV delete and ID1000s for my 93 tune. Any input?

    On a side note, I'm getting 30 mpg over the past 200 miles on the highway doing 65.

    I have a very similar set up. I would highly, highly recommend E85 over 93. I also have the ID1000s, PW TMIC (get t bolt clamps for every fitting, once you surpass 19 psi they will all pop loose) and GS EBCS. I got both an E85 tune and a gasoline tune, which I also recommend. Ethanol does not like to start in below freezing, although a block heater (about $10 for oem kit) helps.
