Whats up everyone? I just purchased a black '05 STI. It still had the stock turbo, Cobb access port, Greddy exh., DC headers, high flow MAF, and aftermarket top mount, among a host of other mods. I have since removed the crappy top mount and replaced it with the Perrin FMIC. I have also purchased the Perrin rotated turbo mount, and Garrett GT4088 turbo. I have not received the turbo as of yet, going on 3 weeks. I hope to acheive 500+WHP. When I purchased the car it felt strong, but only ran a 9.9 @72mph at the local 1/8mile track. I suspect that the Cobb tune was lost when I replaced the battery. It was a huge disappointment, but will be easy to improve upon. I will update as the build progresses, and post new times as well.

Thanks for the welcome.
I talked to Adam at Perrin today and discovered that the guy whom I purchased the Perrin parts from is not an authorized dealer. I have a bad feeling about this whole deal now. I have received all the parts I ordered except for the turbo, which was about $1600. Adam suggested that I send all the stuff back and get a refund. I have already installed most of the parts though, and I am skeptical about getting a refund. I hate to badmouth somebody, but I have been getting the runaround since the beginning.
Hello and welcome to the club!
Best of luck with the parts saga.
Good luck with your STI.
