    Had a question about a cobb access port... been hearing about it wanted to see if on stock that would be helpful for performance. Or I would need to purchase aftermarket turbo injectors intercooler downpipe or what do you suggest?

    Just a reflash would be noticeable. I'd suggest looking into a catless uppipe as well, so that the OE cat doesn't break apart and get sucked into the turbo (it's happened to a few local guys).

    fix the bov, it needs to recirculate back to the intake near the turbo, also if you get a walbro fuel pump it wont run rich. good luck

    welcome!

    what exactly is done to the car already? not sure why the previous owner would upgrade the fuel pump unless he was doing an upgraded turbo.


    also, please dont dodge the swear filter. thank you

    would it be better to put an aftermarket bov or keep oem and just find the hose that goes back into intake? What is that hose called?

    Dude had sti turbo sti intercooler injectos and cobb access port downpipe exhaust

    Thanks

    Do u think thats the reason why my turbo spools then releases its weird... when im flooring it it starts spooling then bogs then spools then bogs sorry for so many questions first boosted car ive had.

    keep the stock recirc valve. if you do get a bov get a 5050 one not a full atmospherical venting one. stock recirc one is fine for now

    Are you hitting boost cut due to overboosting? (check engine light/cruise control flashes when it occurs?)

    It's your recirculation hose that comes off the bov or bpv to the inlet right before the turbo. The hose from air intake to the turbo(goes under your intake manifold) is the turbo inlet.
