Cobb Stage 2 upgrade looks good. Anyone think it's not the right way? Should I just vf39, sti inj, fuel pump, sti intercooler, sound better? Will a different stage clutch make a difference? Thanx
You still haven't said if you want 300 CRANK hp, or 300 WHEEL hp.
No, STi pinks are not "plug and play."
FOR 300 CRANK HP:
Catless up-pipe, catless turbo-back exhaust, ECU tune
FOR 300 WHEEL HP (stretching):
Catless up-pipe, catless turbo-back exhaust, VF30/34/39 turbo, STi "pink" injectors, STi (or larger) TMIC, Walbro pump, ECU tune
FOR 300 WHEEL HP (easy 300):
Catless up-pipe, catless turbo-back exhaust, EVO316G, 650cc injectors, STi (or larger) TMIC, Walbro pump, ECU tune.
To answer your inevitable question: No. A generic turbo from eBay is NOT a good idea.
General advice: No one likes loud BOVs anymore. It isn't 1999.
