Default 04 WRX GT30 Reverse Intake Hybrid

My 04 wrx w/ a VF34 setup spun a bearing in October of 2009.
Since then I assembled a 2.5 shortblock, had my wrx heads ported and put together a GT3076 reverse manifold FMIC setup. In hopes of achieving a solid 400 hp/lb-ft power plant.

It has gone thru three iterations already. The first I took the motor and internals to a local shop for clearancing, resurfacing and balancing. Then i assembled the short block myself. I ran the car with my old vf34 AP and pinks. The motor didn't sound right (clearance issues). Second time around i took it over to CFT in Orlando. They rebuilt the longblock and i added some better components. They did a break in tune with the larger injectors, the motor ran well. I never got to do a final tune because the clutch was failing. Turns out it had excess grease on the friction plate and slipped under any load. While daily driving it at that stage i kept having problems here and there because I had rushed everything. At one point i thought the head gasket blew when it was really some breather issues.
The third time around I had another daily driver and had time to take everything down to the long block then clean, customize, and rebuild to end up with a solid setup.

This is where its at now. Still needing a final tune...

Nice job man...one quiestion, hows the maf doing so close to the turbo. I only ask because I had tuning issues myself trying a set up similar to that a few years back.

Thanks.

It might be a problem. It hasn't been tuned with this setup and its running at an uneven idle. It ran previously just fine with the maf about 4 more inches away from the turbo. Also that intake pipe has the sensor positioned non concentric, not sure how critical that is.

Regardless, The plan is to lengthen the intake and biassing the maf towards the filter. I just need to fab that up.

Where did you get all the push to fit connectors for the pcv and vaccum lines? Do you know how many you needed and what sizes?
