    VF34 AccessPORT

    I was looking through the maps on my recently purchased AccessPORT (02 WRX) and I noticed that for the VF34 turbo map it doesn't mention any need of: larger fuel injectors, larger intercooler, or better fuel pump. What would you recommend as needed for the turbo swap? Does the coolant system need to be beefed up as well? Thanks!

    For an 02 WRX you most certainly do need larger injectors to use the Cobb VF34 map. It calls specifically for the STi pink injectors.

    The Cobb map calls for VF34, STi pinks, uppipe, and TBE.

    You do not need bigger fuel pump and TMIC according to Cobb Tuning.

    You would definitely need JDM STi pinks, TBE, and uppipe.

    Help

    Hey, how do you reach the squeeze clip on the oil return line once you've set the turbo on? Someone told me to use a longer piece of hose, but what kind will be able to withstand the heat? I have heater hose or power steering hose to choose from. Anybody? Bueller?

    Thanks for the writeup and pics. Something that might help: I used a curved hemostat to hold the squeeze clamp fully open on the oil return line. (Its a locking clamp-like they use in surgery) Then set the turbo in place and just slid it up and unlocked it. I really appreciate the tutorial, it made it possible for me to do it myself. So far, no leaks. Thanks a million.
    PS, a 3/8 x 3" socket extension plugs the coolant hose perfectly
