'Tiss I again, I've been here a short while, so new that I only got to drive my '02 WRX 3weeks before she blew. Received some news from P.I.A. they've given me a few options from stock rebuild to forged internals transplants, and I said why not...give me the goodies and prepare me for the next stages. I've decided to do the 2.5 swap with all upgraded internals, and a cobb access port.
With tax it's running about $7K. and yes I've called around to get quotes. The only other place I'd trust at this point is W1(world one). My next step will be a 255lph fuel pump and some 650cc injectors which I can get done for about $400. After that I'm thinking td05 at least for now, It;s a larger turbo but spools a little slower. I'm debating about the whole top vs front mount intercooler arguments, I'm thinking top mount, (less piping) I'd like to find an sti tube and fin. Anyone have one? Hit me up If I'M gong the wrong direction on my mods, I'm new to the scooby and dont have a whole lot of cash infact one of the reasons I'm going to the extreme side is that I still owe $10k on the car itself, for those of you that don't know I was sold a warranty that was no good, the dealer wasn't willing to help, so I'm paying out of pocket minus what I get back from small claims court, yes the attourney general said I have a case, that the dealership should of never sold me a warranty.
