    Why spend money on a noise producer?

    I have a whistle I'll sell you for three dollars. Just blow it when you shift.

    why doesn't everyone use a greddy evo muffler? anything else is just extra noise, right?



    100 bucks is a great deal. you will not have any trouble selling it and getting that money back if you don't like it.

    Scoobymods has a good writeup on how to remove the intake silencer. Check it out there, it's not too difficult. Good luck!

    I usually get full boost a little under 3k rpm. But remember, if your car is stock you wont see full boost until 3rd gear.

    get a bov that recirculates. your atmospheric bov causes your car to spit fuel which then becomes unburnt..that unburnt fuel ignites in the exhaust which cuases backfire/flames/popping. having no cats doesnt help either.

    most catless systems with a straight through muffler will shoot flames right ater letting up on the throttle, and it lets out a little boom...nothing usally spetacular.

    when you say recirculate...Im thinking your talking of a BOV that feeds air back into the piping and blow some off like 50/50, or... It feeds all back into...

    Im a bit new with some things, have been reading a LOT. I plan on buying a java black STi 05, and modding it for my graduation present. I know there is a rule of thumb that you never buy a new car and upgrade it, but frankly, I dont trust people that are selling their STi or rex for fear of people hot dogging the engine when it hasent even been properly broken in yet, ie driving like a lunatic and racing everyone they see off the lot. If you know of anyone that has a car that has been taken care of let me know, because id much rather spend 25k than 32k and then more on car modifications.

    I am also having trouble finding a worthy Dyno shop that works on subies around where I live... Everyone around here works on Honda/Toyota/Mazda... I live in Pensacola, FL..Its the western panhandle for those unfamiliar...I am willing to drive as far as ATL and dropping off my car to have everything put on and tuned if I have to.

    Anyway thanks much for the information...

    I forget the colors and stiffness but the middle spring should be able to hold 18psi.

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.
