Default Is there any way to get ahold of Rob?

Does someone know Rob's phone number, or something? A better way to get a hold of him instead of email?
He sent me the General faq, I asked him questions right after, no reply...
Responded a couple of days later, no reply..

I'm speaking of Rob, the Tuner.

Okay well I'm purchasing some 05 STi Coilpacks,
Also 05 STi yellow injectors,
And an STi fuel pump.
Will those all work for his 550 tune?
Or do you need a different fuel pump?

Also what else is needed for the 550 tune?

Rob is out of town, just need to be patient! Maybe wait a week or two. That being said, your list there looks great.

I used a walbro pump, but I'm sure the Sti pump will work,
Also depending on what your doing with boost your gonna need a controller as well.

I'm running robs tune with my build, runs great.

Funny thing, I don't even have my GC8 yet, I'm probably getting it sent over today. As soon as it arrives though, I'll have my injectors, my fuel pump, mbc, and coilpacks, aaand robs tune ready to install

I WANT THAT POWER! Hahahah

Anyways,

So you guys think that Manual boost controller is the best way to go?

You know that the coil packs are not plug and play, nor are the STI injectors? For the ignition you need to bypass the ignitor (see sticky) and for the injectors you need the fuel rails off a USDM 1996-1998 EJ25D (plug and play on EJ20G manifold/fuel lines).

or you could go with Carl Davey's phase 1 -> 2 fuel rail adapter if you can't find the fuel rails for the 550's.

It's a must have. The factory setup is inconsistent at best.

Tial all the way.

The ewg was my favorite mod to the stock 16g. I can't imagine anyone not using one

I used a mvs 38mm as well and was very happy with it although I was always curious how the 44 would have been.
