Let me know if you run into any problems, be glad to help out!
Got it! Thanks! Can't wait to get them in. For the boost gauge did you cut the stock hose and put the "t" fitting in? I've seen some people go out and buy a short hose and unplug the stock hose from the bpv and put the hose they bought inbetween that so they don't have to cut the stock hose.

What size injectors did you get? Can't wait to see what power you make!

For the boost gauge, I ended up going near the stock boost controller line, in front of the manifold near the alternator.
there is a hose coming out of the manifold then into a filter then into the stock boost controller.

I took the stock filter out and replaced it with the Prosport one it comes with. One side of the filter goes to the manifold, the other side has a short 2" hose to a "T", the out of the "T" goes to my boost gauge and the stock boost controller.

Also, the injector size i got are 850cc. Since I don't have any chance of running E85 in the next 5 years I felt the 850's were big enough for any power level the block / transmission can handle, yet small enough to be used as a daily driver without visiting the pump everyday.

Cheers!

I believe the line you are referring to, is going to the MAP sensor. That line comes off the manifold and has a filter. The line to the EBCS comes from the turbo's compressor housing and is T'd off to the wastegate actuator.

Most people use the line from the manifold to the BPV but the line to the MAP sensor should be fine too. I wouldn't use the one between the compressor and the EBCS because that one will likely read a hair higher and if it were to leak from that location it could cause a lack of boost control and over boosting.

So today I was only able to install the DW65c Fuel pump. I went very well but the write-up I did took close to 4 hours in total. This was by far the longest one I ever written...
The pump is really quiet and you only hear it when you turn the ignition on, once it starts the exhaust takes over anyway.

I have a lot of more surprises to be arriving tomorrow, I can only hope I have enough time to get everything in before the tune!

Here is the link to the Fuel pump Write-up

Haha. You know what they say, great minds think alike!

So, for the clear tube... My secret was to put the end of the tube in my mouth to get it warm enough to stretch over the "T". It's the best solution I thought of in a while.

Haha, yeah I was serious... I really worked though, but a hair drier will do the same and not look as weird!

Hey is the ACN 91 that much worse then regular 91? I though I was screwed with only having 91 in Maine but if it's worse, damn!

Is all of Cali like that?

haha well when looking at the map details on the cobb website, the difference from the stage 1 acn91 to regular 91 map isn't much. But once you go to stage 2, there's a big difference especially in torque (according to the dyno graphs on cobb's website.) I'm just hoping a protune will get some of that back haha.

Yup all of the gas in Nazifornia sucks..California, Nevada, and Arizona have the ACN91 maps because of the crap gas. I would LOVE to do E85 but not many stations around here.

How does everyone feel about SSR wheels?

Instead of the Rota G-Force, I'm thinking the SSR Type-F in Touring Gold - 18x8.5

Thoughts?

Style, I'm digging. If you enjoy the gold go for it, personally will probably go black or gunmetal.

Cant wait to see once you have your power mods installed and tuned!

Hmmmm, well I think I'm just playing it simple...

I thought I wanted 18x9 with 255's but then I 'm getting into fender rolling territory. I know fender rolling is simple and painless but I'm just not that desperate to get an extra 10mm of stance. I went with the tried and true stock STI size just because I know it works well with the car.

Also, since the car is corner balanced already I didn't want to raise the car, dial in more camber, roll the fenders, and re-pay for the alignment and corner balance.

It'll look clean and be functional, I have no need for more tire so I went with what works for a Killer Daily Driver!!

- Cheers!

Hey Jorden,

They're still sitting in the box I had a leak in my bathroom on Saturday and it destroyed my wood floor so I'm playing Mr. Tile guy for the week.

I just finished the grout today so I can tackle the Injectors, Plugs, EBCS, MBC and Intercooler before my tune on Friday.

I'll have a write-up on each of them but probably not until later next week.

Cheers,

- Jason

Me too!! I'm wishing for any number over 300... I hope that's a reasonable number but time will tell...

I keep saying no because it's a daily driver and as bad a** as it sounds to us, I think most people on earth would think it's a bad exhaust leak.
But... My guess is that the next level I'd like to take the car will be the 2.5 Dominator, Grimmspeed uppipe and EWG so that would dismiss that thought..
I know they do sell an EWG that plumbs back into the downpipe but I just bought the DP and don't feel like buying a new one or welding the Grimmspeed dump tube into my existing DP.

Oh the problems we face.... Haha!

Hey Jason, I've been thinking lately... Do you ever think back going with an STI over the WRX? I know personally my intent was I didnt need all the extras for the premium, however now that I have the WRX, I have concerns in terms of reliability, once the major power upgrades begin(way more stout tranny, brembos, already larger IC, better compression, etc) I guess less worrying. Just wondering what you think.
