Im just going with factory gears right now and yeah that is just the if everything goes good 980 lol. mainframe sold me the gears for 350 shipped. I got a steal . later down the road i may get straight cut gears, I just want the darn thing to run already lol
So far, so good. It's been 1-1/2 years and closing in on 13,000 miles. It's still more power than I have use for. (Bear in mind that I drive the truck 3-4 days a week, so the WRX is always a treat) I drove it up to the mountains to have dinner with Trainrex last Friday, and it ran flawlessly.
I wish the mileage was a bit better, but that's not exactly what you're going for when you install a hybrid in your car.
Yeh i noticed a good amt of increase set it it at a modest 15lbs in 2nd and max at 19 , i need to do some finer tuning (running really rich, the evap hose that always has an issue of coming off on the 03 had been disconnected on my last tune so need a wideband and better tune) but i really noticed the difference but will need to install and tune at the same time w/ any ebcs.. good luck keep me posted
Does that intercooler support a bigger turbo also? also i have a question about the STi intercooler. That obviously supports the vf-39 but say i would go bigger would i need to go bigger with intercooler
Hey you have helped me before so i thought i would ask you this question. i am obviously looking to upgrade injectors, pump, and intercooler. but my question about the STi intercooler is it says, requires a longer turbo to intercooler coupler and a 3"x2.75" (interior diameter) throttle body coupler. i was wondering what exactly these were and where i could get them
