    Otherwise the lag and extra expense for the turbo is ridiculous. I know the lag will help with traction on their FWD but why not run a smaller turbo at that pressure and get some response out of their car!?
    Cuz he's a retard, he's better off swapping turbos with me lol

    Well that will help, but think of it this way. You will be putting around 180 to the wheels (with stock boost, catback), while he will probably be putting down around 200. He weighs 300lbs less than you.

    So in short, if you can drive and have a decent launch you should put a good amount on him, but he will still pull you up top. That's just how it is.

    For now stop worrying about all that and figure out how to sell your following mods

    -F1 Racing Stage 3 Clutch Kit (This is WAY to strong of a clutch for your power level and will most likely break your transmission. Replace with stock clutch)

    -Blitz Dual Turbo Timer DC IV (simply not needed)

    -Blitz Super Sound Dual Drive BOV (replace with stock bypass valve and help your car run a little smoother)

    Use the money you get from selling these to take your car to a reputable Subaru mechanic and have it completely checked out, and any problems diagnosed/fixed and returned to stock.

    Are you sure that 7psi is your peak? Or does your gauge show that when you are on part throttle? You should make roughly 13.5 PSI only as a peak (quickly tapers down after reached). I get a similar pressure output when I'm not at peak HP/TQ.

    Oh well, that sucks. Well I have my stage 3 really loose since I read that it'll be dangerous since we have a glass box tranny, I haven't had no problem, it's practically stock lol. And for the timer, well it has boost gauge in it, and that the only reason I use, I plan to get rid of it once I purchase a cob ap. And the reason I purshased the bov is cuz I'm getting a t4m for $200 cuz we obviously don't need to upgrade bov's with stock turbo, oh yea and it sounds really nice

    Well I have $400, I got laid off till january so I won't be getting any checks in for 2 months, so I posted this: I have 10 CELs, NEED HELP

    to see if any of you subaru junkies can help me out.

    Well thats what it showed when I revved 7k rpm, and when I drive too if I'm remembering correctly. My buddies did an experiment by blocking the wastegate and I reached 1.13 hkpa (16.3psi) with the car choking, when I put everything back to normal and drive fast, it read .50something hkpa which is like 7psi, I vaguely remember getting .70something hkpa (10psi) but I don't know.

    Neither does anyone else.

    I can't speak for others, but my main problem in trying to help you is that you seem unwilling to provide a complete story in a way other people can understand. If you're not "remembering correctly" what's the point of posting for help? Who would be able to help you remotely without knowing details? At this point, no information is better than half the information.

    I recommend posting the full story, or getting help locally from a trusted mechanic or dealer. I don't predict anything meaningful coming about with the existing posts. Good luck.

    Well thats funny cuz in my other post about the 10 cels I gave a full story with pics and everything and I'm not receiving any possible solutions.

    I would be more than happy to more than happy to give exact details but car doesn't turn on, I'll have to at least attempt to turn it on for like 15-20 minutes so it can finally turn on, and then I have to wait like 10 minutes for it to warm up because If I press the gas pedal before it warms up the car will turn off, and usually in the process of turning it on some old geezer neighbor complaints cuz of the noise.

    Yes, you're right. And then I said that I don't know where that is (in expectancy of someone telling me). I searched in google images, nothing specific. Come on man I came to you guys for help, not to be given a hard time, I provided good info and pics, I bet if I just posted "need help, car trouble turning on, high idle, stalling, performance sucks, these are my cels (names cels)" it wouldve been the same answers.

    So, you are saying you need a specific picture of someone telling you which connectors to check?

    These are the sort of things you pay competent mechanics to do...

    No, i'll just check al the connectors myself. yea but the thing is that i'm short on money, i got laid off, only have 400 bucks for two months. And i'm afraid that a competent mechanic will take advantage of the situation since i'm not knowledgeable enough about the car to defend myself, you know? Like freakin Mastro Subaru charged me 500 to take my old engine out the car and find what the problem was and 500 more to put it back in, i'm not freakin rish(wrote it wrong on purpose)

    Megan Fox is HOT!!

    But it sounds like you have a lot to do before any racing gets done.

    But GL with getting everything fixed and running like normal. There has to be someone in your area that can help you out with everything or maybe just check it out to get some more info and stuff.

    I see no humour in it at all, but if you do I suppose that's fine. It's your threads and your car, after all.

    in my other post about the 10 cels I gave a full story with pics and everything and I'm not receiving any possible solutions.
    Given the way the (lack of...) information is presented, people are really trying very hard to help. I'd recommend seriously considering writing down the story with the problem in a linear and logical manner. Here's an example of why people are having a hard time:

    I would be more than happy to more than happy to give exact details
    Um, OK, thanks?! People are trying to help you.

    and usually in the process of turning it on some old geezer neighbor complaints cuz of the noise.
    "Cuz" isn't even a word, and none of this has anything to do with the problem.

    Again, just some advice for the other thread and future threads: consider stating:
    1. The history. All of it. Saying "the motor is stock" and then "I don't know, I didn't do it, maybe the previous owner did something" makes it impossible to help.
    2. Just the history.
    3. The problem.
    4, Just the problem.

    Hopefully someone will help. I confess I'm baffled. If not by the car itself, certainly by the posts.

    Wow, I just realized that this and the 10 CEL's are the same thread!

    You have quite a few things to check on! Personally, don't even worry about who would win in a race. You redline your car running like it is, that motors bound to go.

    And here's why people say change your mods:

    1.Clutch-Yes, the trannys are known to go (the gears). Think of your clutch as a shear pin. It busts before your gears do. A clutch replacment is 1/2 that of a gearset, if not more. That clutch will grip until you tourque your gears to round disks!
    2.BOV-Yes it makes a cool noise. But, the air that escapes to atmosphere is supposed to recirculate into the motor to even out the idle between shifts. You'll run richer and your idle will stink!
    3.Timer-the idea of the timer is to keep the oil circulating through your turbo when you turn it off to keep it from baking. Your turbo should have a coolant jacket, thus rendering it un-needed. Get a mechanical gauge and pod, they'll run you $70 (if you find a stock Lamco gauge that comes with the car usually). It acutally plugs right into your wiring harness and vacum lines

    So now you know.....

    Well it merged to same topic lol, but come one man that bov costs me 245 lol, shouldnt I keep it for the turbo upgrade? well I do have a stock clutch that came with the engine I bought, but its in worse condition than the stage 3, so I should buy a new clutch, any recommendations? or maybe i should just buy another stock clutch?
