    Heh...oh I would love an EBC....now the question is can I afford it? Suggest to me the cheapest most effective EBC and I would definitely consider it.

    Anyone check out the TurboXS Dual Stage MBC? Kinda like BristolBoost's system I think....

    ebc vs. mbc

    yeah, i know that an ebc is definitely the way to go, and as someone suggested, it's a matter of cost. i guess from what i hear you should just keep saving, and even though it may take longer to get one, get the ebc. i was looking for the cheaper route, but i may save up and hold out for the ebc. i don't plan on going very far with mods, which is why i was leaning toward the cheaper mbc route. just my thoughts.

    There is another reason that I chose a MBC over EBC...Subaru Warranty. Before I got the car I decided to go with an EBC, but then the reality of the warranty came to mind when buying the car and I figured the MBC can be removed in like 1 minute. The EBC on the other hand is a little harder to remove, and will still show visible scars on the wiring from splicing.

    But I do agree, an EBC is safer for the car and a little cooler with in-car adjustability. Maybe down the road when I NEED one, or the warranty period is close to being over.

    The one EBC that will leave no scar and remove in munites might be
    the TurboXS unichip with the peggyback plug but it is expensive.
    The stage 0 kit sounds really good.

    For now I am using the MBC with my solenoid switching system
    until I go with stage 0. Money is always a concern.

    Actually I can remove my EBC in about 10 minutes. There's no wiring splicing and just 2 hoses to move. That's it.

    If money is not a problem, any one of the stage kits or a custom
    Godspeed setup are prefered over diy setup.

    Godspeed setup package multi level tune.
    TurboXS stage 0, 1 etc
    Vishnu stage 1, 2 etc
    Cobb setup.

    All are great if you got the cash and close enough to the installer to
    get a good install and dyno tune sessions

    Of course the ultimate Prodrive UK tune

    if i have catless up and down p's with MBC why do i need an EGT gauge?

    why is everyone so concerned about high EGT's when using a MBC? am i right in assuming that if youre using a MBC and the up and down cats are removed then there really shouldnt be anything to worry about?

    i would like someone to tell me exactly what kind of damage can be done with the stock exhaust setup, MBC and no EGT gauge... and then, what kind of damage can be done with a system with the first two cats removed and a MBC

    also, does anyone know what the EGT's range is in the stock car with no mods?

    Thumbs up $130 good for a GFB BOV?

    i think so, being that retail the BOV is around 220 or so. Anyways, found an i-clubber in need of some cash and parting with his mint BOV (never installed it although it was used for 2 months on another wrx).

    thoughts anyone?
