Default Almost there! GT30 kit bought!

Well, after MONTHS of preparing my '06 WRX for a turbo kit, and researching.... I finally settled on and purchased, IMHO the best designed rotated kit, a stage 2 FAT kit! Parts are on order and being built.

My Current Mod list:

1. APS DR525 FMIC.
2. APS 3" TBE.
3. Complete Group-N mounts.
4. Complete '06 USDM STi drivetrain (minus motor).
5. Entire Smog pump system removed.
6. Flex Innovations Grounding Kit.
7. GM EBCS.
8. GTSPEC Anti-Lift Kit.
9. IXIZ Air to Oil Seperator.
10. IXIZ Hood Dampeners.
11. Kartboy Short Shifter.
12. MadDad EL Header.
13. NGK 1 step colder plugs.
14. Prodrive springs.
15. Spiider DCCD Pro.
16. TB Coolant bypass.
17. TGV Deletes.
18. TIC Unabombers Sexy Rear-End Kit (non-race).
19. Walbro 255.
20. 22MM f/r swaybars.

The FAT kit includes a GT3076R with a .82 A/R, Tial BOV, and a Tial Wastegate. System will be converted to blow through.

HERE is pictures of the kit.

Right now, i'm on a stock block with a stock clutch. These are the last 2 upgrades i'd like to do. I may end up upgrading, at least the clutch, sooner than I think.

I hope it's all completed within the month, as i'm very anxious. My goal is 400awhp, and I should have no problem reaching this with my current mods and this kit.

I'll post the dyno plots once it's all installed and done.

He builds them as they are purchased, and just finished two cars in the last couple months alone

I don't expect any time restraints.

You didnt list injectors... Also I think your 400whp goal will come up short. Think your going to end up with a true 350-365 whp. But that is still fast as ****.

**** can the APS TBE Its heavy and the bellmouth comes loose alot. I could feel a noticeable differance in weight **** canning my aps 3.0 and aps 3.5 tbe systems.
Go with the tomei header/up-pipe. Better construction at a really good price.
And pick up a adjustable fpr. Big problem I have seen is stock FPR's failing to hold their own.
I also replaced my fuel lines with perrin v1's
For drivetrain I did the 6spd swap. with alot of extras.
I picked the ACT streetlight flywheel and the RPS clutch.
Both are holding perfect. The RPS has the feel of slightly stiffer stock STi, Alot nicer then my ACT clutch. The ACT clutch set up sucked in dd use.


FAT does some great work.. So just look for a good tuner. Stay away from local indie tuner. He jacked my motor up with one of his tunes. And well dummycomp is too baller to help anyone now days.
I took my car to crawford for its tune. He can also tune thru email or over the internet.
If you can swing it... put some money in the heads. But keep the wrx cams... They give more torque then the STi cams.
Your set up is little less then mine and I am in the 400whp areaSo if you have any questions shoot me a email.

After my Ohlins flags are installed I am installing a cosworth long block. Then going gt35+

Thanks for the info, but I already own and have installed everything in the mod list. I'm just waiting on the turbo kit now. I'm not sure what FAT has planned with the injectors, and was curious on that as well. I highly doubt the stock 565cc will flow enough.

Have you checked out the MadDad EL header? I swear they are made at the same factory as Tomei. The only real difference is the cost, Tomei was alot more.

I would never get rid of my APS for another exhaust in count of weight. It's quality, stock look, and sound is top notch... nothing is comparible IMHO. I've never had trouble with my bellmouth, but that's going away with the rotated kit anyhow.

FAT has a tuner in house that does all his cars and everything is being done at FAT as part of the kit. Otherwise, i'd have Clark Turner tune my car as I haven't found anyone else better at this point.

I didn't know that about the wrx cams, good to know. I don't have the money to pay for any headwork at this time.... wish I did! But, I will look into a FPR, what's a good one? And, do you have trouble with the clutch jumping on light takeoffs due to the lightened flywheel? I've never heard of RPS. I've been leaning towards exedy, but have no preference yet or experience using these on our cars.

HERE is a thread on an '06 WRX with less mods than I have running the GT3076 .82 pulling 412hp@22psi and 380@17psi on straight 91 octane.

Very nice setup. I like how the piping is run. That would work real well with the new hood scoop on the 08+.

That will easily hit 400whp IDK WTF post #4 is talking about.

Congrats on your purchase Kevin! I wanna go rotated but cannot bring myself to spend the money as I would also need a 2.5l to even think of spooling it.

The tuner at FAT is Mark, brocksdad on the forums. He is good people and will take good care of your car

That played a HUGE role on my decision on this kit. It looks killer there, and functionally I think it's a great place to put the turbo. Besides, you should be able to hear the turbo spool more there and I love that sound!

Thanks Brock! I knew the tuners name, but not on the forums so that's awesome info. Now I can look up his posts and hopefully find some tunes he has done. .

Has anyone had experiences with Mark? Robert @ FAT praises him.

With proper tuning, you shouldn't have any trouble with 400whp. Looks like a nice list of mods for sure! You definitely want a new clutch! Good luck!

I have, he tuned my car

He did a GREAT job. Cleared up a ton of little issues it was having on the previous ethanol tune. Car feels as powerful on its current 18psi (maxing the maf now and waiting on Perrin big maf) as it was on its previous 22psi map. He went over EVERYTHING in the map like any good tuner should. You will not be disappointed.

Here is my thread.
http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1670250

I was at sea level with that tune using a dyno pack. If you can squeeze more out kic ass.. I would be glad to see it. I just have seen alot of cars in that range. But then again every dyno reads differant.

I loved my APS systems. Having both 3.0 and 3.5's I just have really bad problems keeping the bellmouth togther. Two other shops also had that problem. I didnt like the weight to. But I'm sporting a JIC Ti system now.

Cant wait to see your over all out come. My other mod after the cosworth block is installing a v-mount. I'll have to talk to fat and see what they can do with that.

Thanks, yah I can't wait either! I took a look at your thread, nice numbers. I think you could have easily hit 400awhp if it wasn't a stock location turbo. TGV deletes would help alot with that size turbo as well.

I'll definetely post the numbers once it's all complete and running.

Oh btw, I talked to FAT... we're definetely going to have to go with larger injectors. Totally skipped my mind, thanks for bringing it up.

Are you talking about the exhaust in the sec paragraph? If so, I have fell in love with the APS 3.5in tbe. I got more power,topend, and the turbo spooled 500rpm faster.

If anyone hasn't seen or heard yet of the bosch injectors which are matched in every aspect by Injector Dynamics and sold by T1 Racing Development... THIS thread is a REALLY good read.

I picked up a set of these injectors sized at 1000cc for this kit, and from everything i've read here and on other forums... they are getting alot of good hype.

Why such a large injector size.? Good luck with finding a good idle or gas mileage for that matter. Those are too big for a gt30. Your going to be running rich all the time.

i ran the dw 850s on my 30r. i put down 356 hp and 329 tq without the avcs working on 91 and only 16.6 psi. 400 is easily obtainable, hopefully you can get the engine work done soon and build that motor. idk about reliability at that much horsepower on stock pistons in a wrx.

Not after Mark corrects the injector latency. And IIRC he is going e85, and on e85 he will need every bit of 1000cc and more.
