I JUST NEED MORE THROTTLE RESPONSE, like my original 05 STi. Wheres the hold up to that in my system here? I've researched the hell out of this and thought I bought all the right parts, it just still has that split second hesitation my 05 did not have. I want that instant GO back.
But all in all , I thought these were great numbers, the daily driving of it hasn't changed one bit, well. its a little louder, but with that perfect SPT boxer rumble I'm OK with that, it's not a droner like a Honda with a fartcan. (And don't get me wrong, I love Hondas, I owned a 95 Civic Si for 11 years).
What headers are you running? Fuel wise you have tons of headroom for a VF! You're good for a 30r with your fuel set up. Spark plugs 1 step colder?
