Hello, I'm new here, just bought an 02 bugeye, which I've wanted since I first saw pictures in 01. Anyhow, been a subie fan since I was a kid... drove my dad's old GL into the ground at 422,000 or so, had a 96 legacy... upgrading to the bugeye, now. Anyhow, from what I think I understand it's nearly stage 3, out of the box, so to speak. Here are the mods:
--GT Spec Header and UP-Pipe
--Turbo XS 4” Downpipe w/ High Flow Cat
--Turbo XS Full Exhaust
--Pink JDM Original Subaru STI Injectors
--Perrim Fuel Rail & Braided Fuel Lines
--Walboro Fuel Pump
--Cobb Intake----Blitz Filter----Saamco Connecting Elbow
--Hyperflow Large Top Mounter Intercooler (question)
--Forge Diverter Valve
--Cobb Tuning "exact map"
So here's my question... It was supposed to come with the larger TMIC, but the dude sold it and put the stock one back on, will this kill my car, power, tune, anything? And is it really important that I re-upgrade to a larger TMIC?
The car only has 50k on it, and I'm hoping I didn't get taken to the cleaners too bad... In addition, he threw on a strut bar, turbo timer, gauges, and some other misc crap to make up the price diff because I was pissed. Help please
