    Apexi Turbo Timer
    Greddy EGT Warning Gauge 52mm
    Greddy Oil Pressure Gauge 52mm
    Lotek Double A-Pillar Gauge Pod
    Perrin/samco Radiator Hose Kit (not sure)
    Perrin/samco Turbo Inlet Pipe (not sure)
    Sti Injectors 550cc (might get PE's)

    switch out those injectors for something larger, you're going to come close to maxxing them out on pump with that turbo.

    Do what brian said get the PE 800's and get it over with. Im currently with a vf-30 100 static on my sti injectors (well before i blew my car up)

    also im not a fan of the WALBRO fuel pump.. it's noisy and cheap... YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR, so get the PE fuel pump or a OEM supra fuel pump..

    as for the Tubro timer... apexi makes a sweet ass timer but isnt the deadbolt a Water/oil turbo? you dont need it.. save your money and put it towards better products.

    yeah having had both turbos O/W and oilcooled only I would definately suggest getting an O/W turbo. It's just a pain in the ass to let your car run for 10 minutes every time you get out of it.

    Go for the FP green turbo with moded stock injectors. Have the moded injectors flow tested to make sure they are safe. Remember that the bigger injectors the worse the idle will be (PE800). Run 23-24PSI and your good for a 11 easy.

    23-24 PSI will be pushing the motor so watch the timming on time end. I'd say no more then 20 degrees.
    This is just my option, you can do what you want.

    how many people do you know that ran a green'd stock block wrx into the 11's?

    TripleX is the only one that I can think off off the top of my head.

    I don't See how the Modified stock injectors "are safe". Grinding off the cap that creates the spray pattern to increase flow is CRAZY (my opinion) I grinded off one of my stock injectors to see what was underneath the cap... The piston that releases the fuel is exposed. I think yes.. you get a flow of 740cc's but they will drip in the fuel rail and not be fuel efficient. Maybe im just Blind and there is some kind of Fuel Injector Conspiracy Therory and "The Man" is making us pay more

    I know im gonna stir up some **** here but we are talking about our car's fuel. That is like our blood, e.g. say our arteries were blocked If we needed a bypass surgery and it was recommended.... we opt to take angioplasty because its cheaper, yes it would work too but I would rather have new arteries then a roto rooter

    THIS IS MY OPINION so go ahead let the flaming & brawl begin =) I hope someone has my back =P

    I agree that modified injectors is not something I will use on any of my projects. Spray pattern is crucial just as much as volume of fuel. I have had a few modified fuel injector cars in here and they have not idled well in comparison to a nicer larger injector from Denso. TSNEJ20, your setup sounds good apart from the injectors. I have made the pinks go static before on the VF30/34 and I'm sure it will happen with the 18G. I assume you already have an uppipe and downpipe. Something you may also want to consider is a manifold to go along with the turbo. Makes a sizable difference on an 18G and is pretty cost effective. I would skip the rad hoses by the way. I just use stock ones usually.

    Hey guys thanks for the posts. Ya between clubwrx and wrxtuners i've decided to can the radiator hoses and going with the PE injectors 800's sound good saying that no mater what size you get they are the same price. I'll look into the pe fuel pump or supra fuel pump. I thought walbro was at least decent since thats what everyone sells. I want to make sure i have good quality stuff for my car. Thats why i'm not gonna hack up the injectors. Whats a good site to check out for a intake manifold. I havn't seen any at the normal sites w1p, fastwx.com, jscspeed, etc. Once again thanks guys!

    Hmm, i checked out gruppe-s' website for the PE 800's. They suggest the 800's for 350-450 awhp. 650's for 300-350. I know i wont be making no 350 awhp with my setup. Should i go with the 650's? Also out of oil catch cans which one would be #1 choice, Greddy, Perrin or Helix. Perrins the most expensive!
