Default EJ20G power whoring project overview :D

So i just found out much to my dismay that im going to miss 2/3 of the AutoX season along with Evo school, but ill live. Ive decided to focus on a pure power build for my Swap though in its stead with the same funds. the car has a td05-16g swapped ej20g from a v2 wrx. Here is my prospective build. input would be greatly appreciated.

91 octane

td05-16g 18-19 psi
Power FC
Snorkuldelete intake
Full turboback
walbro
750cc Sard Injectors
Forester XT TMIC
Tune by harvey

Thoughts on this build? I'm also swapping to a 4.11 rear end LGT transmission with a stage 3 clutchmasters organic disk + ACt stage 4 pressure plate/throwout bearing. how much power am i looking at?

Help would be greatly appreciated, as i have the money budgeted and ready to rock. Anything blatant im missing? I'd rather not dabble with Meth.

take the money from that tmic and go FMIC. trust me. then get tuned on 17psi for a safe 300whp, or get deadbolt to monsterport that 16g and your manifold.

i would also think the 750s are excessive unless your planning on running 85

well what FMIC would require minimal cutting of the actual chassis bar etc

i absolutely want to avoid the lightweight bar

and this whole project might get put off as my 5mt just blew last night

so downgrading to 650cc is good?

how much power does a FMIC allow for vs a TMIC, i dont want to compramise safety , but liek 1k is kind of steep for a FMIC when i can fab for less

Around 280 on Super's dyno.
The FXTMIC will hold up fine, though E85 would help some. You should be able to run it with those 750s.

A good fuel pump is missing.
If you're on the stock "G" coils they may not hold up at that boost level.

Walbros are bad because i'm dumb and cannot read.

So much for the "bunta", you can't bunta with a busted tranny.
