    i was trying to prepare my self for this summer. i will be pushing between 20-25 psi and the STI injectors if i purchase those will be maxed out. i was reading around and the Garret GT3575 turbo was catching my eye. i will be replacing pistons and rods this summer as well. there is nothing wrong with getting things early and installing them. beside i here the stock WRX injectores ar maxed out at 15 PSi. that does me no good. i will go to COBB tuning and talk with them next week and see how much boost can i push on stock internals. im guessing about 18 -20 Psi.

    heres a quick idea. before being allowed to post here you must pass a required test based on all very basic things. bovs, cais, and such. this would reduce these kinds of posts.

    if you are going to be doing all this engine work the 2002 tranny is notorious for being weak. i would get a set of upgraded gears before i went all out on the engine.

    I think the first thing you need to do is get rid of the DSM mindframe. Your eclipse is a COMPLETELY different animal than a WRX and you simply cannot go about modifying it in the same manner and expecting the same results out of it. It is a known issue that 02-05 WRX transmission has weak gears, so be prepared. This is especially a problem when launching. Strong stock clutch + no wheelspin = busted gear. Likewise, things like boost controllers, which are common place on a DSM are one of the last things you want on a WRX.

    As far as your present modifications plans go. I know you want to stick to all HKS stuff, but their downpipe is really lousy on the WRX. It has a restrictive plate over the wastegate like the stock downpipe. That's fine on the stock turbo, but if you have plans for a larger turbo you're gonna want to get either a bellmouth downpipe or divorced downpipe. ERZ makes a bellmouth downpipe that is the same price as an HKS downpipe.
