    Question (Need Help) point me in the right direction...

    Hey guys,

    im new and had turned down my seach in gettinga 02 S2000 in replace of an 03 WRX...ive been reserching for awhile but i cant find somthings here...
    First off my plans are within the next 2 months to run,
    A Gt35R turbo kit
    AEM stand alone
    750cc injectors
    Clutch Masters clutch and flywheel
    apex 80mm WS exhaust
    FMIC
    HKS BOV
    and a couple of other things to make it happen...

    what i need help is where can i find a used usdm wrx block?
    i would like to get one and have it sleeved and fit with aftermarket rods and pistons... also howmuch whp an the stock bottom end on a 02/03 wrx run safley with the AEM setup on a daily driver? im looking to run 400WHP on the stock bottom end for now until the seperate bottom end is sent out to get built, prob not to the end of the summer.
    also howmuch whp can the stock turbo manifold handle safly?

    thanks guys for the help... and is it just me or is this site hard to navigate? lol

    and welcome to The Club!!!!

    I was a little confused after reading your post, but from what I understand is that you did buy an '03 WRX?! Congrats! Definitely do a lot of reading on the Club, there's plenty of great information available.

    By the way, I wouldn't do the BOV. It's a waste of money.

    Here are some links I suggest you check out!

    I'm not so sure about going with the gt35r on the 2.0 block. You probably won't see boost until about 4,500 rpms. But when it hits, its gonna HIT.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please check out the engine performance forum where all of these type questions can be answered.

    I'll try to post up a few short answers for you here though.

    Stock bottom end HP limit is tune dependant on the 2.0 block. 400 HP is pushing the limit. You might be safer waiting for your built bottom end.

    As to how much HP the stock turbo manifold can hold...I'm not sure how to answer. Maybe you are asking how much it can produce? Also, please define turbo manifold. Do you mean intake manifold? If so, this is pressure/gasket dependant. Higher the HP, better gaskets are needed (copper plated, etc.).

    Since you are going FMIC, then of course you will need a BOV. Since you are going AEM stand alone, you will be able to tune for it, besides actually needing it with this setup. I am assuming with the GT35R setup, you are going 255L walbro FP and an external wastegate. You also may want to consider headers to lower your EGTs and maybe plan for water injection to support that monster.

    I believe Gruppe-S sells used blocks. Check their website out.

    If you need more details, please post in the engine perormance forum.

    Good luck!

    Thanks guys..

    i did mean turbo manifold BTW i did not mention the intake manifold...and also i was asking howmuch hp it can handle not produce i think you might be misunderstanding me here, but since its stock im assuming it cant handle all that much... In my opinion HKS is a great BOV to those on here who had said otherwise. yes i will be runninga walbro fuel pump and a 38 - 40mm external wastegate. You also said i might wanna concider headers? What do you call a turbo manifold? lol from what isee you can get them complete with the up pipe.

    Hahah yeah after re-reading your mods list you definitely a BOV/wastegate upgrade when you have that much power. Maybe I was tired or drunk when I wrote my original post?? I guess we'll never know....but those defenitely some helpful links I threw out!

    They are called "headers". I've never once heard them referred to as a turbo manifold until now. What do you call them if a car doesn't have a turbo? Exhaust manifold/headers. Afterall, a turbo has two inlets and two outlets. Which is the manifold?
    To answer your original question...the stock exhaust manifold can pretty much hold as much as you choose to throw at it. Again, it is gasket dependant. The stock design actually flows pretty good. Again...check out Gruppe-s. They also have some posts in the engine performance forum showing some pulls with their headers.
