What exactly do you want us to tell you? If you're looking to see what this makes, search around PROVEN POWER BRAGGING. If you want hints and tips on your setup, research on the forum.

Forget the gymkhana exhaust, you will be deaf.

Why the BOV? It will do absolutely nothing for performance. The only possibility is that it will hurt performance as well as your engine. The stock BPV is more than enough.

Why hydra? This is a daily driver, right? Stock ECU will be more than enough.

What are you thinking for an engine build? How much are you planning to spend? What's your entire budget? I think you're over your head if you're planning to add all of this at once.

Read thru the proven power bragging?

Well hydra is something that in the car since 2009.
The exhaust is just something that I like loud
But I'll look into that..
My budget is around $9000 give or take.
And why I'm going over my head?
Thanks

You'll get your engine built for $9000 or you can do other mods...You won't get both. I'm getting a built shortblock right now and spending almost $10,000 on it and related parts. Start with a downpipe and a tune, maybe do some other minor mods too, but don't go big right away.

What's the fastest/highest horsepower car you've ever driven/rode in?

The Hydra is already in the car? I'm assuming you already have a tuner then?

When making decisions about what standalone or piggyback system to use, its best to consult your tuner and use whatever they tell you to.

If you are mostly street driving I would get an Accessport and go stage 2. If that does not do it for you at least you have a turbo back to work with, just my 2cp.

So, you've only had rear wheel drive cars...Have you read Unabomber's Manifesto? The 400whp Public Service Announcement? Anything?

You just don't seem like you know at all what you're doing. Like you've seen some parts and said "Well, so and so has this, so it must be good for my car too." It doesn't seem like you've done any research about the parts or car or limitations or anything.

Find a tuner, tell him your goals, do what he says, call it a day.

I would like to get some opinions thank you.

1. Thats a rather vague statement...
2. Yep thats a turbo alright
3. Why no EL they will make better power
4. ok
5. ok
6. Loud
7. Have fun with winter cold starts on e85
8. ok
9. Uselsss
10. Brand? This should be ok, but pushing higher IDC on e85
11. ok
12. Get a pump gas tune too


Overall your "build" seems like a lot of basic bolt ons and then an "engine build" (whatever that is exactly). What kind of advice are you looking for. If this isn't a track driven car you are flushing lots o bucks down the crapper for power you really wont be able to utilize. Even a sti with a stage2 setup + injectors + e85 is more then fast enough on the streets.

Have you ever been on a road course? If not then I'd go take a spin out there at stock or stage2 power levels and lemme know how you do. Even with that amount of power the course is extremely fun and you can loose it on many turns easily.

In the end it's your money not mine so do with it as you please. Your goals and build just seem a bit undefined, which is why you are getting (will keep getting) flack for your questions (however vague they may be).

If you have 9k spend 4k on mods and save the rest for the inevitable repairs.

Some guys on a stock turbo and e85 do over 400wtq and 350+whp. How are you driving on the street that you want more power? Keep the gas mileage and reliability instead of spending a ton of money on the power so you can still get blown on away on the track by a miata with 120whp.

Good luck and hope it goes well for you.

With that turbo you won't be pushing huge numbers even on E85, so for a motor build just drop in forged pistons, killer B oil pickup/baffle and move on. All of that should be able to be done for under 2k and as others have said, save the left over money for future repairs.

Personally, I'd put the $9k towards paying the car off before heavily modifying it.

You can't learn everything from the threads..
It's a forum so why not to post.
I got to car title long time ago.
I've post this thread yes, because I wanted
To see that I came up with a good/safe setup.
After reading ill start with e85 tune injectors and pump
I have the tbe,FMIC etc.

Make sure your engine builder knows how to build Subaru engines. Our engine requires more attention to details.

Call Maxwell Power Services. They've got a great reputation for Subaru engines. I've got them building my shortblock right now.
