Default Rotated HOLSET HX35 '02 WRX (inexpensive build!)

I've been in my new shop for about a week, just bought some more fab tools and ordered a bunch of pipes, flanges, fmic's, wastegates, ect ect. But I was bored. Soooo I decided Friday night that even though my bulk order of stainless U pipes and flanges ect ect hadn't arrived I wanted to go back to the old days of building turbo setups with a mig welder, plasma torch, band saw, and a few other little hand tools. Backyard DIY style! Not finished but I will keep pictures updated. The hx35 setup is for my '02 WRX winter car, but since winter is upon us here in NY I didn't want the down time so I am building it all off my '04 STi then switching it all over and tuning the WRX is one day.

Salt eats iron in NY. My wrx winter car doesn't deserve the best of the best. Plus it was CHEAP and in perfect condition internally.

It's in awesome shape mechanically, 70k miles on it, which is nothing. It has probably never seen over 10-12 psi of boost it's whole life. A turbo blanket and header wrap and no one will ever know. I plan to bead blast the intake manifold, compressor housing, and intercooler pipes House of Kolor tangalo orange. And the lower IC pipes will get rattle can truck bed liner.

Vgt is awesome but we use those on 12 valve cummins, not ej205's haha. The hx35 and he351/vgt flow 60.75#/min that's pretty serious. Like a decent 30r

The car wasn't running right before I put the holset and stuff on. So I'll keep this thread updated.

not right now unfortunately :/ just use it to put my spool characteristics in an area i like. ill be building my own electronic vgt controller at some point tho. will also redo the up/down pipe to put mine in a more similar position as the one above so i have more room for the controller.

While I love the over the top custom builds, I really enjoy builds like this 'cos it's the real enthusiast/grassroots type of projects that really keep the hobby going..

Thanks, I do builds like this on both ends of the spectrum. The grassroots builds prove that pretty perrin kits (and my own pretty kits) aren't any better at putting down numbers.

Hey bud, took the hx35 off the wrx and trading it for my old 02 civic si hatch with the 50 trim and chrome. The forester is what I need help with if someone doesn't buy it first. I'm thinking about putting the holset setup on here and/or on ebay for sale.
