ok, cool! i found a vortech fmu with a 10:1 plate for sale on craigslist for $100, im not sure if im gonna get it yet though....i need $! actually, the vf-11 has a much bigger exhaust housing, so it kicked in at 2800rpm compared to my td04 @ around 2300rpm. i know that susiemk was using a 12:1 plate, but he has a 99 impreza...so im not sure how much different maf cars are in 98 from the map 99's. there was an old thread on rs25 where a company was selling walbros for $80!!! i pm'ed him to see if they still sell them that cheap, so we will see! did you have any issues with blowing up fuel lines from too high of pressure? thanks again for your help!
