    Thanks very much! The powerband is all about the tune and that came from Ed at EQ tuning. I'll be retuning really soon with him and will post the newest dyno when i get it.

    You don't need our help lol. You obviously know what your doing and are modding in an educated manner
    haha i appreciate that. But I'm always open to the perspective of others. I try to be tasteful but I knew nothing about subys when i started out. I don't need as much help as some other.. and i love to give help. I just want to elevate others as well as myself.

    Even the 2003 tranny do you think? No one has yet to confirm that the gears were changed between 2007 and 2008, though Subaru has us all speculating as usual.

    from what i recall, the gears are the same 02-08. The clutch changed from a push to a pull in 05. The gears changed in 09 and that is what made it beat the 09 STi in the 1/4 mile. Sorry if this is wrong!! I have seen the 09 gears compared to the 02 gears and the size difference is ridiculous.

    Well I do know that the 05 up lgt gears are the exact same as the 09 wrx gears. I have talked to Subaru of America about it( actually a guy I know that works there). So maybe I'll just go with those

    Nicely put together.

    I just wonder why 1300cc fuel injectors at that power level?

    I got the 1300s so that I won't be close to full cycling on an E85 tune. Ill be tuned on 91 for the 1300s in a couple weeks. I'm on a break in map right now. In the near future I will go e85. The car was completely ripped apart so if I was gonna swap them out again, that was the time to do it.

    GR-2s will not handle a spring like RCE Yellows / Swift Spec-R well; you need a better option like the D-Specs / Koni inserts.

    With the recent increase in Tokico prices, I'd say go with the Konis, personally.

    You have to remember that too much injector overhead will cause fueling issues at low fuel flow. The ECU is a digital system. The larger your injectors the lower your bit resolution in your injector mapping. In other words, you have less fine-tuning ability with your fuel system at normal flow.

    Bigger is not always better.

    I'd like to confirm this. I'm surprised that SOA actually gave you any form of useful information. I think I'll get on the phone with Andrewtech later to confirm. As of the moment I have no reason not to believe that this is true.

    Not quite. 2002 gears are different. In 2003, the gear width was increased 1 mm per RA specification. The 2003-2007 WRX gearset was unchanged, but various improvements were made to the gearbox to improve longevity -- 3rd gear synchro stop changed, dual-ring synchros, and eventually the F/D was changed in 2006. Speculation has it that Subaru changed the gearset in 2008 to LGT gears as stated ^^, but no proof thusfar. As I understand, the LGT gearset has the same gear dimensions as the 2003-2007 WRX, but is purportedly stronger.

    I totally get this and I agree. I also yearn for the corn haha. I will be getting tuned for the 1300's in the next couple weeks. I'm breaking in a new shortblock at the moment. My tuner knows about the concern and although the ability to tune them is reduced the bigger you get(although greatly improved with a standalone system) he has a system worked out to tune to this size injector. Additionally, he gets them to idle amazingly well on the stock ECU. I didnt think that was going to be possible. Can't wait for the tune. Dyno will be posted along with a video of the driveability.
