    New WRX Owner No Receipts Please Help!





    Just bought the car from a dealer with no receipts. She's got a few hefty mods I know that. But no ID on the turbo I can see from the engine bay. I should probaly start the old fashion way and start taking her apart. Any WRX tips on where I should start or what I should check for would be greatly appreciated?

    i wouldnt really 'take her apart', per se..
    I see APS fmic, intake, and possible turbo inlet.
    prolly has downpipe/TBE, as well.

    pull the pass. side carpet, and see if there's a piggy-back ecu under there.

    Hey thanks guys. Your info has helped. Most of the stuff I can ID, but the turbo seems unmarked. Take a look quick look at the turbo to see if you can relate the printing/design. Stock turbo? And your right about the trans 4cyturbo. She hates reverse and occasionally grinds 1st & 5th. Stiff shift too. Any info there would be great. I also need manuals for the Blitz TTimer, and Defi Diff controller and gauges. Any one know where to find a PDF Manual files by chance? Oh and And You can call me a newb all you want. Thanks guys. Keep it clean.

    ProdriveX - the turbo apears to have a stock heatshield, so I'd guess that it's a stock turbo.. the writing on it looks like the same style as stock.






    Acrdys - wtf you talking about?

    Turbo

    I see. I thought it looked pretty small. Great info Rogan. Your expertise is appreciated. Now I just need to find some PDF manuals for the Blitz TTimer and Defi Diff controller. And when it comes to transmissions, poor gear engagement means bad ThowOBearing/Sycro right. Any one know of a good website to find them for cheap. Thanks again guys.

    what is a Defi Diff controller?

    The Blitz turbo timer instructions most likely only come in Japanese anyway..

    What model blitz timer do you have?

    Former: 00 Integra GSR
    Former: 07 Mazdaspeed3

    On the turbo timer, the wiring is goes like this

    red wire goes to 12v Constant

    Green wire goes to ignition switched 12v

    blue wire goes to Ignition accessory wire

    black wire goes to ground

    purple wire goes to the ground or hand brake.


    Also, for the TT manual:
