    Slow wrx New motor

    Whats up guys? i need some input on my wrx, i recently put in a new motor from the dealer, had the heads redone so everything is brand spanking new. The problem i am having is that the guy that installed my motor told me that my td04 was shot and he had a vf34 layin around so he threw it in for me but now the car is driving slow with boost comin in at 3500-5000 rpm any ideas should i change fuel pump and injectors and get a tune? The motor itself has about 900 miles on it currently...

    I'm surprised it's lasted 900 miles. You need injectors, fuel pump, and most important, a proper tune

    Call your turner about tell them what turbo and engine you have, then ask about their recommendations on injectors.
    For a VF34 you can get away with a set of 550cc injectors. Like the stock Blue 06+ WRX or Pink STI injectors. However, your tuner may recommend 650cc injectors.
