With a 16g, 850cc should be fine. An 18g, MAYBE. Not a 20g.

alright thanks for that info guys,now what if i decide not to run those turbos and go with a vf,34,43,something in the vf series what size would i need to have, then im trying to cut the cost down in injectors because the higher you go the more they cost..?

I've got thick skin. No worries.
Again, the range of turbos is so broad that you've listed that it entirely depends. 850cc is a safe bet for most smaller turbos, in my limited experience.

I have run my 20g with e85 sometime. I have a '05 LGT (2.5L same as a STi motor) and I make about 340whp on 91 cali pump gas at 20psi and at the same boost level I hit 370whp. I have modd 830cc stock injectors. I hold 20 psi at 7000 rpms and I hit about 94% IDC.

why not just run modded stockers / 850cc. there is no good reason to run a smaller injector, and the injector size is based on your power level and fuel type only.

I know you have a a 2.0. I was just letting you know that a larger engine with a 20g with 830 injectors is fine. Your engine won't move as much air as my 2.5L. So your IDC will be even lower then mine. So you will be fine with 850cc. I was just giving you real numbers for a comparison from my logs.

You need to talk to your tuner. There is little difference between the EVOIII and an 18G so pick one of the damn things. As to the injectors, that's a question for your tuner as if I steer you wrong you can't punch me in the face, but if your tuner runs you wrong, you can punch him in the face.

Boost was 21 psi. Redline was around 6800 if I remember. I'm not running it. I didn't have anything to gain over my pump tune except for a decrease in MPG. My tuner said about 1000's would be what I'd need.

In most instances it doesn't matter what boost he was running unless that 21lbs was at redline. You run out injectors at topend. With 18g n up id try to source 1000cc.

You shouldn't let high mileage hold you back. As long as you don't crank boost up through the roof, E85 should be just fine for you.

In my 03 Evo 8 I'm running E85 on a 20G...at 107k miles. My boost is extremely conservative (same as my 91 octane tune) but the car feels amazing on the corn. Evo's gotta run 1000cc injectors to use E85 though, mandatory.
