    It really depends on what you are looking for & how & where you like to drive. They are supposed to be excellent turbos and are very popular for good spool (not as good as stock of course though) and a good bump in power (not as good as the top end on a bigger slower spooling turbo though). You should look at deadbolt's site, I here they are really good to work with. I'd give them a call at this point personally. Also call your dealer back and ask them what screens - they should tell you since you paid for the diagnosis. I'd like to know now.

    Would i be able to run that 16g with just new injectors or would i run poorly? I checked Cobb's site for maps, and it calls for 91 octane and i can get 93 never mind the other 50 parts i need to run that map.

    93 octane will just run safer on the map, less chance of detonation.

    I actually wasn't aware that the map notes don't specify a fuel pump. Everything I have heard says you need one. I think you may be pushing your budget a bit at this point though because of the need for the TMIC as well. Also, you are going to be getting into territory where your tranny may break. It shouldn't happen if you are careful, but it would be time to be prepared for a swap if needed.

    You should maybe consider this. It should be a very nice improvement in spool and midrange, and may even be the best choice for you depending on what you do with your car. You would not need injectors or fuel pump IIRC, although a used TMIC from an STi would be good eventually. This way you could also get a good tune, not an OTS map.
