Thanks man... checked it again today and looks like the smoke is coming from drips of oil splattering on the downpipe. Definitely not coolant, as the that line is dry, and the the liquid is dark/ greasy.

ah, in that case, check the oil drain tube on the back of the turbo. it's tucked up in there, and the stock clamp on the hose is a spring clamp. that tends to leak. it'll be a pain to do, but it's possible to wrap a hose clamp around the connection. usually there's over an inch of where the drain pipe gets covered up by the rubber drain tube hose, so you can usually just slide the spring clamp up higher on that intersection, and still have plenty of hose/tube to get the hose clamp around.

yeah but for us autox guys we need quick spool and 400wtq and 400whp all with full spool by 3200rpms would be tits! if i was drag racing then a 7163 would def be in order.

Highlighted is what I want for torque as low as possible for as long as possible.

6258 is really impressive. For autox it probably would be ideal

The packaging is difficult with those.
they are already a long unit, twinscroll makes these even longer.
The 6 series seemed like it could be shorter but initially was not offered twinscroll.

Full race is looking for a really high price for their pipes.

The full race test result, that all are excited about, comes in contrast with the perrin test result and Perrin even left his article kinda open-ended, suggesting (to me) that there were things that he could not say..

In addition to all this, there are some articles suggesting that BW is preparing their next generation, which will have all the EFR plusses, in a short (normal to us) body.

When you think about it, the long assembly means extra weight and if they shorten it successfully, the unit may be even more performant.

dont forget that is with a ej257 engine. our engines rely on higher revs to make more power up top instead of down low torque. you could prob get close tho running 30psi down low and then taper it off to mid 20's the rest of the way up

Maybe this was mentioned, but it sounds like you have a broken CV boot. That usually leave grease spattered on the downpipe.

lol.. yep, that's exactly what it is! In a way I'm glad it's not the turbo lines. But that stink from burnt bearing grease is is quite bad too. Hopefully can get it repacked with a new boot.

03wrx Rallycar

Default

hey guys having some issues with my version 8. figured id post here because everyone is so knowledgeable.
currently I put my ver8 from my 95L into my 03 bugeye to use as my stage rally car since it was already caged and logbooked. ive gone over everything so many times and can't find anything to make this happen.
when the maf is plugged in it runs like crap. 40% to rich and then down to 40% to lean at idle alone. when we attempt to scale the maf so it will idle just so we can light test it on the dyno it has a very big problem zone that makes me wonder. as soon as I get any boost pressure immediately the ecu tries to remove 50% fuel. so needless to say I can't get it running correctly.

without the maf plugged in , it runs perfect. idles great afr sits at 14.7 so my tuner said he could scale the "backup tune" so to say so I could drive it, but keep an eye on the wideband and go easy on it.

things I have tried to fix the problem;
1. switching MAFs 3 times actually 1 used 2 new
2. checking for vacuum leaks at idle and under load
3. checking for unplugged or loose electrical

the only things I changed from moving it from 1 car to the wrx is;
1. stock wrx harness with correctly added avcs wires kit from iap
2. 34mm restrictor
3. machined cold side of vf37 to fit restrictor
4. put lock screws and an O ring so the restrictor is unmoveable and no air leaks
5.prodrive turbo inlet

any thoughts would be great, thanks

there was a car i was helping troubleshoot a while ago, the owner tried all the things you mentioned. I'm not sure if its the same thing but check out your front o2 sensor wires, if you left the o2 in the exhaust manifold during your swap, it is easy to accidently get the wires squashed against the frame rail and get some weird readings.

are you running the JDM ECU? if so, maybe you could try running the CarberryROM, which is a Speed Density ROM. otherwise, check front O2 sensor, (but if it runs well withouth teh MAF plugged in, then that sort of diagnoses that to be working), or triple checking for a vac leak under those conditions.

Hey guys,

I finally got street tuned on my V7 and boy am I impressed. Since I had the time, the car was equipped with GSC (S2)valve train and a twin scroll rotated 3076R. WOW does this thing pull incredible hard from 3600 to 8200. I can't wait to turn the boost up and get on a dyno for a 25psi run.

Unfortunately the v8 stock exhaust manifold doesn't have an egt or o2 sensor there. Its in the top of the downpipe. I'm using a wideband and it reads the same as the o2 sensor so it should be working.

I'm at a lose and my first rally is next Friday/Saturday. Only idea now is just wiring demons somewhere. Im under the assumption I'm using a stock 03 wrx harness , and I added the IAP harness avcs harness but it all checks out

Hey guys


Just got my car back today w a v7 ej207 swap complete. Currently running a blouch 18gxt w full supporting mods and a road tune to 22psi looking to hit the dyno in the next few weeks. Only like 100 miles on the new engine and I am already addicted. I was not a huge believer that the differences between the 205 and 207 were going to be that huge but w avcs on the 207 this thing is incredible turbo spools much earlier and just pulls great all they way to redline. Paired w the v7 6mt I have I just love it. Awesome motor. I will definitely be putting another in my gfs Wrx when I get her one

Good to hear, I saw your silver wagon at wicked while my car was getting a pre-tune inspection.

It was great. Tom fixed a small issue that I was too flustered to deal with and then M@ took the car for a street tune. The ride home was all sunshine and rainbows after I felt how much power it was making. Matt likes the 1.5xtr on his car, I went a little crazier with a 3076 but I honestly don't notice any appreciable lag.

Hahaha nice! Yeah I will probably step up to the 1.5xtr and follow in his footsteps in 6 months or so. Just did the engine and two months ago the full drivetrain swap w brembos etc and my 18gxt setup is less then a year old haha! But I will say for the 18g I am super impressed with this little thing at 22psi I was just out driving in the nice cool air and it really pulls pretty awesome now w avcs and the engine in general. Do you have the 207 as well? The lag on my 205 w the 18gxt even was annoying, that's completely gone now spools with me hardly on the throttle feels like the td04 again vs before haha.

I've heard it can handle 400whp as a daily driver and stay reliable. This is from wicked... It can handle more but I'm assuming it gets less reliable obviously. The 1.5xtr will get me right to or just under 400 which is why I'm interested super strong little motors.
