If your goal is cheap 300ish whp I would go with a vf39 +sti pink injectors+used sti topmount and the cobb basemap with proper data logging.

at least that saves you some money to pay to rebuild your 5speed that will at somepoint eat its self alive anyways

well besides what i said before wrxli93 you are prob around 195whp on the stock tune. on a stage 2 tune you can get your car to the 250whp area no problem. going from 190ish to 350 is nearly doubling the whp which is quite a bit of power upgrade. going up 100whp with a sti turbo, tmic, injectors and some maintanence parts will make the car very reliable and you wont have to worry about blowing the trans as fast. mine blew to hell on a spicey e85 tune w/ the td04 two years ago. other guys i know have 18g's w/ ej255 and there trans are fine. its how you treat it but just ONE mistake will ruin your day. you can upgrade to around 300whp for around 1k dollars and have money left over to fix small stuff. if you want some more help i can help you via pm. i got some sti parts as well i can sell ya

have you ever driven an all wheel drive car with 350whp? that's quite a lot of power, and since you have a bugeye, those 5spds are weak. you're not really gonna be able to unleash the full power without a real danger of blowing up your tranny. if you're in college, and don't wanna spend 4k for a 6spd, i'd recommend just going with a vf39/43/48, an sti top mount, injectors and a fuel pump. that'll put you at more or less 300whp and you won't have to worry so much about your 5spd grenading

My 02' bugeye has about 180k on it and I have been pushing 300+ AWHP for about 100k of that. Granted I have rebuilt the motor once because my head gaskets went. But my trans is still rocking like a champ. I beat on my car pretty hard too. I know this is a rarity and pretty much a miracle with these glass trannys (02-03's) but just saying, do what you want here, and if your trans blows up it blows up. But until then, I don't see the need to worry about it.

But when my trans finally does go, a full 6 speed swap will take its place.

What 6spd transmission are you aiming for when the time comes?

As a fellow college student who is in the same boat (literally just went stage 2 & coils this summer) and trying to keep your car reliable (my bugeye is about to hit 70k miles), upgrade to a sti turbo (vf39, 43, 48), bigger fuel pump and fuel injectors (255 and at least 565 respectively), and a sti or equivalent TMIC and you'll be more than satisfied till the end of you college years. You could even pull a map off of cobbs shelf with the vf39 and skip the tune (assuming you already have an accessport)

I just turned 20 and go to college and this is what I'm doing, plus headers, sway bars, and a tune.

I'm not going to get preachy but this is a very sensible post. Solid power boost the car is more likely to handle. Granted they are 2.5L, but have you driven an sti with a proper tune? They aren't exactly slow!

I agree...vf39/sti tmic/pinks/fuel pump is your best bang for the buck and with a good tune will be fun until you have the $$$ to build it right.

If you NEED MOAR...(** is what I consider minimum requirements)
**High quality TMIC (GrimmSpeed, Process West, etc)
**ID 1000's
**DW 300 pump or bigger if you plan on E85
**18gxt (320hp) or 20gxt (350hp)
Composite tgv deletes (no need for phenolic spacers then)
GrimmSpeed P&P/coated manifold/cross-pipe
**GrimmSpeed catless/coated up-pipe
**GrimmSpeed EBCS
GrimmSpeed pulley
**Perrin turbo inlet
Cobb SF intake with box

Very little (if any) gains with catless DP in this power range. Better off with a hi-flow catted dp. You won't get the in cabin funk, the rear of the car will be cleaner, and of course, it's better for the enviroment.

Do not go with an eBay tmic. Go with an sti tmic. The eBay ones wont hold boost and will give you serious lag. I had an eBay tmic on my bugeye and i was super slow untill i got the STi TMIC. You should get the grimmspeed air oil separator as well if you want your car to be super reliable and last forever. You should also look into mishimoto a oil coolers as well they work wonders on turbo'd cars.

You should put RA gears in your tranny if you are serious trying to pull mid 3s. You will blow the stock bugeye transmission and thatll cost you an arm and a let. Upgraded gears would run you $1500 in parts but would save you later down the road trust me
