I would strongly suggest getting the STi fuel injectors and stronger fuel pump. You're REALLY going to tax the stock fuel system with that set-up, and anything arund 16 psi or more, because you're going to be flowing a LOT more air.

Otherwise It's a nice set-up.

You forgot the "and what do I need to tell the guy who's installing this stuff?".....scary, but at least he'll learn something.

Thumbs up

Too much blitz...BZ(Bravo Zulu...means good job in Navy/Marine Corps jargon) for going JDM, it is the best, but I would get the Kakimoto GT1.0Z from Dan ad godspeed for an exhaust.

I have almost all of the pieces that you listed...and I love them...Blitz is a good company, but I like to have a Variety of JDM manufactures on my car!...They do not pay me enough to run their $hit like you want to. Unless you get a sponsorship!

Sky - Man that's a whole lot of modding at once. Shoot all I have is exhaust and turbotimer. Just curious how much all that is costing you.

Krave - Were you on 121, by the colony, on Friday? I wasn't in my wrx so I didn't bother waving or anything.

oops, thats not all stuff i just ordered, some of it was already on the car or are replacing other non oem parts.

i wish i had money for the injectors, fule pump and some type of management, but i saved up all i have the money i have and i wish i had the exprience and tools to do the install. but i dont wanna half ass it and break stuff befor its on the car. i do hope to watch the install and learn something.

i was worried about geting the fuel system done right now anyways, because i dont have anyway to tune it. there are no dyno's in my area and the closest one is booked for a long time. i have heard many people have been having problems getting the txs unichip tunned for non txs products. i know there are piggyback computers but i definatly dont have money for that(yet hehe). i have been thinking about the apex afc. but we will see if i have problems. allways room for tunning.

Haha, yeah i do like blitz, i kinda have a fetish for jdm stuff. i looked at the kakimoto stuff but shipping, price and i have heard of it being very loud, turned me off to it. I have been buying blitz products beacuse i have been very pleased with the quality of there pices and have had no problems with them.

the kakimoto sounds awsome but i had read somewere that beacause it is the lightest and the matirials it was made of it "dose not last as long as a normal aftermarket exhaust" not sure exatly what parts would not last

krave- Are you running stock fuel system and computer? How is it working for you? I'm worried that upgrading the turbo w/ out any type of fuel or computer upgrades is going to be unsafe. I currently have about the same setup minus the turbo and I/C.

I wouldn't install the turbo without a way of tuning fuel at minimum.

what they said. you need to upgrade the fuel system and start looking for ecu upgrade/tuning. also you need some gauges.
but it sounds like a nice set-up!

You just send him your ECU, i think he solders a chip onto your ECU that is "re-programable" so each time you have a new mod, he can re-map your ecu...

dont take my word for it, do a search ... there is alot of stuff on him. check the TORONTO forums
