All USDM cars will come with 18" wheels. The JDM cars have a 17" option, so 17's should still fit without any problems.

So why is the redline 6500rpm? Did they change something in the engine to reduce the redline? And is it possible to up the redline to 7000rpm with a flash and for it to be safe?

Also, all the 17" on the japanparts site says that they will not fit VDC equipped cars - all the USDM ones have VDC, so we might be stuck with 18"...

Nope 18's, and they are much better in person, than in the pics you have seen.

This would reduce the pressure drop for outside (cool) air flowing through the core to cool the intake charge. As you said, the TMIC is limited in cooling, and this was an idea to improve the air flow on the cold side to improve the effective cooling. I've heard of people talking about these cores, but have not been able to find the actual product on the net anywhere, or even a good picture of one. I also don't have the math down to prove that this would make a difference, but the cold side of those standard bar+plates looks so restrictive, and I suspect that the cool side air is coming into the engine bay at a relatively low pressure. Just brainstorming a bit...

Frank
Got it! With every core, we vary the geometry. For instance we have a core that is not 3/8" fin and bar on both hot and cold sides. It comes down to the ambient air flow, and how restrictive we make the core. When building these, we use ambient air flow, Charge air flow , and pressure drop to figure in what is the best combination. It just so happens that on our normal TMIC, 3/8" and 3/8" works best.

Judging by MAF g/s I'd say they are using the same injectors as the 07 STI. This car is just leaned out more with a better cooling system and better pump with upped FPR. A little birdy told me it is the same turbo that is on the legacy, but that is probably wrong, it is proabbly the same VF43 on the 07 STI. 15 Peak PSI (relative to sea level) it seems, so it may be the same 07 STI engine with new heads (exhaust AVCS) and better cooling. My drive magazine mentions stuff about improved cooling ducts, intercooler and a higher flowing fuel pump. They also mention revised gear ratios, but I bet it is identical to the 07 STI gearing. I can't wait to look at the ECU tables.
Yes, this engine uses the same top feed blue injectors that come in the WRX and 2007 STI. Its for sure not VF43, because of the compressor housing being different. But it could be the same size as a VF43. The fuel pump being bigger would be nice. Our 08 WRX used the stock fuel pump and worked just fine up to 380WHP. If the 08 STI has a bigger one, maybe we can say goodbye to the noisy Walbro?

Mike
Not sure if anyone makes that big of a snow tire. But there are lots of 17" tires out there. So you might have to get new wheels to do that.

I am sure we can go to 7000. As far as making a peak power, that extra 500RPM doesn't do anything. It does add area under the curve, so of course one of the first things the tuners are going to do is raise it to 7000. But it will not change the peak TQ or HP numbers.

That is strange?? I bet its the STI wheels for the WRX. It shows they have both on there. I do like those! But for that much you could get some custom wheels from CCW!

yeah there is no way im goin to put snow tires on the BBS wheels, seeing that if i slid and bent one, id feel like a tool. i just need the official bolt pattern and offset so i know what to order from tirerack, and know that they will fit over the brakes no problem.

Agreed. I saw them yesterday on Jeff's car, and they are really really nice. I ended up going with the BBSs since I like the gold wheels on the blue car, but the regular 18s are cool.

Cheers,

We had this great idea what to use one of those side vents for.



Actually we did find a great place for the PWI-1 behind the vent on the washer tank. We are going to be offering water injection tuned maps for the STI stages even starting with stage 0. While this isn't something many customers look at until they get to the higher stages, i think we can show its worth on a bone stock car. Results to follow over the next few weeks!

Which does effect low end power, but only in normal driving conditions. When it comes time to tune these, being able to change maps with the poke and twist of a button will be very cool.
So if I was not interested in changing maps then this feature would be absolutely worthless for track use?

How does it make a difference in normal driving?

For track stuff, yes the I-drive is no good. BUt when we can load different maps into it, then we can do some cool stuff!

But for normal driving its just like having an I-foot. Meaning on sport the throttle works like you expect. The Sport Sharp is more aggressive, instead of 10% TPS giving you 10% throttle, its like 10%TPS give you 20% throttle. This is across the board, and of course 100% is 100%. The I mode is exactly the opposite. 10% throttle, gives you 5% throttle. This i how they say it saves you gas.

The pics and write up are almost done, be on the look out!
