So exactly 2 years ago today we got our 2011 STi.

Its been a great 2 years, not only having fun building this great project, but also testing new products, and also friendships that have been established!

So want to say thank you to everyone that has followed the build from the start, and everyone who has been involved. Even to this day we still have people pull us over on the roads, kids come up, and enthusiasts all around the country and the world enjoy the project as much as we have.

Thank you and we hope everyone has been enjoying this project as much as we have!

Default Build #1 vs. #2

1) Will you provide us with a description of what you liked and/or didn't like in build 1 and build 2, and the pros and cons of each. Was build 2 the same goal as build 1 *with the goal of good low and mid range TQ, throttle response and quick spool up?

2) Which turbo did the RSD team like best? Is one better for one type of driving/goals and the other better for another? I'm sure I'm not the only person agonizing over which turbo upgrade to go with

3) Is there anything you would have done different or that you learned from either build that you can share with us?

Thanks!

We did the build power wise 3 ways. 1 was stage2, 2 was the Tomei Turbo, and 3 was the ATP turbo.
For stage 2 the best thing is that its very simple and used basic Off the Shelf Parts with Off The shelf Tuning. Best part is that you simply get an AccessPort, exhaust, intake, grab a buddy to help you install the parts and a few hours later you have a very safe and easy way to get the most out of the stock turbo.
For the Tomei Turbo, this was a bit involved as we upgraded all the supporting parts other then the Motor internals. The cool thing about this turbo is it really allowed us to max out the fuel we had around us and the instal was very straight forward. The turbo didnt have much more room to go as it was at its efficency, but for pump gas it was perfect.

The ATP turbo was a bit more involved, do to the physical size it was a bit more work to fit including having to do a 3" inlet. If you notice we didnt gain much more peak power numbers over the Tomei on pump gas, as pump fuel was the limiting factor. However it gave us ALLOT more head room to make power on race gas. The catch 22 on the ATP is the turbo has more to give then what we want to push the stock motor past, and as you can tell we stopped in the 380WHP range even though it has more room to go.

Goal for both ATP and Tomei turbo was to simply maximize the stock motor and pump fuel. I wouldnt say that one turbo is better then the other per say as they are simply different. The ATP uses the new GTX series billet wheel so this would be the new Hotness of turbo technology, however the price point shows this. Where the Tomei is a great turbo with out breaking the bank (or the motor). Overall both turbos work great, but do react different. The ATP is more responsive on building pressure and has a much larger power band, however this is to be expected with brand new technology of Billet wheels and ball bearing center cartage.

As for doing anything different, I dont think we would have. We got to try out several products and put up our research on the products for the Subaru community. Learn about what the car likes and doesnt like, and really explore the capability of the car

Can you guys discuss what mods to the fuel pump housing was done to fit the DW300? I have a walbro already and have removed five tabs to get that in. I'm under the assumption that since I have done that already that the DW300 should drop right in now. Correct?

The install for the DW300 and the Walbro will be identical.
I used the how to: below to do the one on our car as it was the 1st that I modified for this. Only difference I did was to use a 3/16" hose on the top of the pump instead of a O ring to create a better seal. Took a bit more work to fit the pump, O ring and the upper 1/2 of the housing together. However with a little lube it made it allot easier.

Hope this helps

Sway bar sizing very much depends on the spring rates that yous suspension is using.
For soft(er) spring rates you will use bigger bars to counteract body roll
For stiff(er) spring rates you will use not as big of a bar, as the springs will do a good job at reducing body roll.

With the Tein Mono-Flex coilovers we felt as this size of sway bar did a very good job to balance the car out and maintain neutral feel while working with the spring rates and shocks that we are using.

There is no cookie cutter approach to the sway bar sizes to be honest, as it changes based on other suspension components.
