I would advise against some of the Ebay TMICs. I have been watching Clark Turners facebook page closely and he has shown results with ebay intercoolers vs real intercoolers...If you are going to get an ebay intercooler ask for a pic showing the inside of the core to see if its the real deal or not.

Why is it that the 18g turbos are priced about the same as vf48?

I guess people think since the vf48 is a decent stock sti turbo its fairly valuable? The 18g is a good daily driving/track turbo in my opinion and I'm very happy with the results of mine.

An STI TMIC would be a nice addition to go along with the parts for sure. Having the turbo PnP will make for a faster spool as far as I know.
100% agree, I would even suggest 1000cc injectors "just in case" you go bigger with the turbo or decide to run e85.

So I bought some DW 750s. I would love to run e85 but I'd have to drive a hour round trip just to get gas. It seems like everytime a 18g comes up for sale there gone fast so what about the 20g or is it less DD friendly?

20G isn't horrible for a DD. But I would have bought a TURBO before INJECTORS because those will be the limiting factor.

Have you contacted a tuner to discuss what size injectors for the turbo you want?

I love E85 but it's way more Plentiful by me. I have a 1000cc injectors with my vf39 which is overkill but my tuner advised me to do them so I would have some wiggle room when my vf ****s the bed. Personally, I love the quicker instant spool of turbos with the smaller hot side like the vf39. I don't really run my car hard so I'm no worried about it falling flat after 5500.

Truth in the matter is you should really discuss your goals with your tuner and see what he advises.

The question would be WHY do you want to run E85? Do you know all the PRO's and CON's of running it? Even if I lived back in IL where just about any station I goto would have it, I would never consider running it.

I'm not going to so it doesn't really matter in my case anyway.

Also, I just posted this in ProfessWRX's thread which is very similar to yours...

I was looking for a good turbo upgrade to get me to the 300whp range since Stage 2 wasn't cutting it for me @ 5200ft above sea level. After doing my research and talking to my tuner I ended up with the following setup

- COBB 3" catted TBE
- Perrin turbo inlet
- SPT intake
- Walbro 255 fuel pump
- DW 750cc injectors
- Grimmspeed 3 port EBCS
- STI TMIC & Splitter/bellows (2007)
- VF48 (off a 2012 w/10k miles)
- COBB Accessport with custom dyno tunes for 19psi / 17psi / 15psi

While I could have hit 300whp with a "lesser" setup I wanted to get it right the first time.

I would definitely upgrade the fuel pump with the turbo upgrade. The whole install takes like 30 minutes. I had never messed with a fuel pump in my life before installing the Walbro and I still found it to be a breeze.
A little OT but why on earth would you get 3 maps made that are 2psi apart?

Why wouldn't you want to?

Not getting into political/food supply/etc reasons, I've never seen a downside if you have enough stations around you to fill up.

Import Image Racing will hook you up. Or take time and look at the countless other NASIOC vendors.

You don't need one step colder plugs with the e85 for the set up you are going with it. My car is setup similar and I wanted to change plugs I was advised by my tuner to stick with the stock subaru plugs.

Interesting, well in that case go with what the tuner recommends. No plans for an external gate?

I thought you said e85 is over an your away from you? That's a long ways to go just for gas.

Edit: mis read that. Still a hang hour one way is quite a haul for gas
