----------
I haven't posted in a while, I've taken the plates off my car to save some money while I get work done to it. Some of it seemed to happend all at once, and some of you might expect me to say it's cause of the previous owner again, so I won't officially say so! However, nothing "Subaru" about my car has failed

Basically, what started as no boost lead to a burnt out wastegate (this is the 2nd HKS product to fail me). Followed by my revlimit becoming 5000 rpm, then 4500, then 4000, then just enough to keep speed in traffic in 5th, which the dying fuel pump is the cause.

So, I've decided to go ahead and fix all that properly. The turbo piping was of mild steel and wrapped in exhaust wrap and rusted to hell. The manual fuel riser thing under the hood killed to supposed Supra TT fuel pump (cause we should all mash Toyota parts into Subarus) Anyways, I'm in the collecting parts phase, all online and all new, and think I'm gettin stuff at a pretty good deal (except for flanges, they're not much cheaper).
My exhaust list:

- stainless T3 inlet flange and exhaust flange, and stainless deltagate flanges from Turbonetics (I got em straight from Turbonetics cause I'm not 100% sure what turbo I have, and didn't wanna get the wrong bolt pattern, especially for the inlet flange) $190 USD (couldn't find supplier locally)


- 3' of stainless 2.25" straight pipe and 2 u-bends, and 1' of 1 3/8" pipe and u-bend for cheap from Burns Stainless $170 USD (got quoted $500-$800 by Resnik? Reznick?)


- Tial 38mm wastegate for cheap off eBay $190 USD ($300-$350 CAD at Mopac) came with small/green spring


- Tial small/red spring for cheap off eBay $20 CAD ($90 from Mopac)

- 4 stainless, 2.25" two bolt exhaust pipe flanges off eBay $130 USD ($250 CAD locally at Lordco)

- 4 stainless O2 sensor bungs for cheap off eBay $18 USD ($80-$100 CAD locally at Mopac)

- found a Magnaflow (of all things) hiflo, stainless cat off eBay for cheap $43 USD ($200-$300 locally at Lordo and Mopac)



My fuel list:

- Sti pink injectors for cheap (at the time) off eBay $350 USD (though I've had em for a year now and never got around to putting them in NOT gonna ask Subaru for local price hehe)


- Walbro 255 gph fuel pump for cheap off eBay $75 USD ($300-$350 locally at Mopac)

I'm gonna be doing the work and a friend of mine is gonna be doing the welding. The car also needs a new windshield and alarm, but I'd like to have it all done for summer. Really wish the car didn't have to die, but oh well, I'm not minding now cause I can still get around on the scooter, so I'm saving a lot of money on insurance and gas hehe

As of right now, what's arrived is my injectors, eManage support kit, piping, flanges, wastegate and wastegate spring.

well played Chris.
Nice price on the Tial w/g. I'm in the process of aquiring that piece myself.
Anyway, it goes to show that places like Mopac are catering to the money laundering crowd. They're the only ones who can afford to pay those prices.

good luck with the project.

Nice flanges!
You'll find when the time comes to replace the block, that these cars are like Lego. Much easier than the days of Hondas, and so much more rewarding.

Fuel pump is installed, and was gonna start the rest of the fuel parts under the hood, when I noticed I don't have an FPR, just some block-off/adapter thing.

Was informed to get an Aeromotive FPR which is now on it's way.
