Took me all summer to complete but here is the end results:

08 WRX Sedan

Perrin CAI
Perrin Turbo Inlet
Process West TMIC only because the Perrin one didn't bolt up correctly to the turbo.

I was trying to stay away from all the silicone tubes but when it came time to bolt on the intercooler the flanges between the IC and the Turbo didn't line up. (A mistake by Blouch I think because it should have been a "bolt on, Direct replacement turbo") My Perrin IC fit perfict with the stock turbo.

Blouch 440xt with the HPD wheel
ID 1000's
Go Fast Bits Respons BOV
Perrin EBCS
Perrin light weight crank pully
Perrin TBE
Cobb AccessPORT
Perrin short throw shift adapter
Perrin Shifter Bushings
Eibach Springs and Sways
Rallitek HD endlinks
Whiteline Roll Center Kit
Whiteline rear swaybar braces
Koni inserts
ACT HD clutch
Konig Lace wheels w/ Hankook v12s
Inovative Motorsports Wideband A/F
Stri X Pyrometer

A Conservative tune especially down low to save the good old 5 speed.
Max Power=384 Max Torque=354 on 93

I bet that feels like it pulls forever. Nice setup with well-chosen parts.

Looks good!

Junior - Any thoughts on this turbo vs. the other Blouch offerings with the STI-style housing?

I'm gonna guess this is on 93, which raises the question; why no e85?! lol

i hope that trans lasts man, i see a few with around 400whp no problem but then some with less that ruin their tranny. I think you were smart at getting rid of the torque spike. Great numbers though, I was looking at this turbo for a little while now.

Your right about the 93. They asked me about e85, but all i would really gain is some more top end. The torque spike on 93 would probably be about 400 if left unchecked and on 85 it would surely snap my 5 speed in a week. 6 speed swap is kinda out of range for me. A built 5 will be about it when the cash shows up. I do have a BOV and some suspension up grades as well, I will add them to the list at top.

It makes at least 275tq from 3800 to 6800 when I let off.

That would be 3000rpm of 275+ TQ like he originally stated.



OP,

Glad you like the car. I know it feels good now, but when you have the chance go e85 I can still try and keep the TQ down but the mid/top end will be 40+



As for the turbo...
I am guessing this turbo is simiar to the 1.5xtr? I really that that one currently and if I had to do a bolt one I would choose that for the fast spool and power potential

I didn't think they offered that turbo with the legacy style flange (for 2010 wrx). I called blouch about this but they are closed til after new years.

The 380xt and 440xt are legacy style flange. However, you can use the PW TMIC optional STI fitment piping to run a STI fitment turbo. That is how i'm running a 1.5xtr, however, I'm not impressed with the performance I am seeing...

seems like a lot more (bendy) piping. not to mention a really high dollar ic for crappy performance.

I believe taget boost was 20 psi. Just by the dyno graph and how the car drives, I would say its between 4000 and 4500, the boost guage goes right to 20 with out any delays backs down to like 17 or 18 then holds till red line.

5 speed is doing good so far, it hasn't seen much excitment yet. I have one day at the drag strip and a couple of auto x events planned for this summer. We will see.
