    Start up after new turbo, ebcs, ewg install without tune?

    Hey guys, today was a busy day... I installed a VF39 turbo, TiAL 38mm EWG and the Cobb EBCS on my 2004 WRX. It is not tuned currently. I need to move my car into my garage and I was wondering if it was safe to even start it up the way it is now. I am currently on a stage 2 HWG OTS map from cobb, 100% catless right now. If I stay out of boost and only have it running long enough to move it, is it safe? I don't wanna blow my **** up, ya dig?

    Also swapping out turbos I lost quite a bit of coolant, what's the best way to top off my coolant?

    One last question, is there a way/do I need to/should I prime oil and coolant into my new vf39? I'm assuming it's empty right now, or doesn't that matter so much?

    Thanks everyone!

    1) You should be fine if you stay out of boost.

    2) Top of radiator if you really did lose that much coolant. Then burp the system by filling the coolant reservior above the turbo near the intercooler.

    3) I would prime it. Pull the inition fuse and "start" the car with no ignition.

    I'm just curious why you didn't research this before doing the swap? No injectors?

    I did actually, most people said stay out of boost, just wanted a third opinion is all. Injectors are going in Saturday

    I would not advise trying to drive the car with larger injectors and no tune. What are you going to use for engine management?

    I'm having my tuner email me a base map for my Cobb AP so I can limp my car to the dyno (4 miles away). It's kind of like and e-tune
