Question HKS TURBO KIT and TURBOXS TURBO BACK

Ok this is my dilema. I have the turboXs turbo back exhaust. But i really want to get the HKS turbo kit for my WRX. I know that the kit comes with its own downpipe. But will that fit up to my exhaust? Could i just use the Dp from Turboxs and not use the HKS one? PLZ help me!! Cause i dont wanna get a cat-back and replace my current exhaust set- up.

There are alot better option out there than the HKS turbo kit. Not just in price but performance as well. If you just want to spend alot of money and say you have an HKS turbo then go for it. But there are alot better options. I personally would not waste my money with the other options out there.

I would look at some of the IHI, PE, and Forced Performance turbos.

wow a pissing match

from the sounds of it you will end up having to use your STOCK mid pipe (bad) and the txs axel back as the txs turbo back uses differnt joint placement


so no
it won't work

This is the typical response you get from the new guys lately. I have decided to stop helping people with there questions because of responses likes this one. No one appreciates your advice unless you lay out every point and detail for them on a silver platter. Guess what guys??? Its not going to happen and that is why some of the more knowledgable guys no longer help the new guys out with their questions which could be answered with a simple search.

To stay on topic, the HKS kit is nice exspecially if you want to upgrade to bigger HKS turbos down the road but for the amount of money the kit cost you would be beter off getting a custom kit from STEALTH-WRX. But like cjm04 said there are alot beter BOLT ON options out there for a much more reasonable price. There is tons of information out there on just about any option for turbos you can imagine. But if you are dead set on the HKS kit then there is one other member that has it, if you do a search for it you will find his post and maybe you can contact him and get his personal opinion on the kit.

Apparently you did not read the entire post and you do not know how to use the search function. I mentioned the other Turbo options that are available based on manufacturers. I am not generally in the habit of Spoonfeeding information to people that do not know how to do research. If you want to do research then use the search function on the site. The is a very large wealth of information available on this site.

But for Example this is my set-up:

HKS Carbon-ti catback mated to an Invidia down-pipe. Forced Performance TD05H 18G turbo, STi injectors, Walboro 255lph Fuel pump, PDE Up-Pipe, TurboXS TMIC, ECUTek ECU Re-flash, Blitz SBC-iD, Blitz Dual Turbo Timer.

On this setup I made 290 all-wheel HP and 252 ft/lns of torque at 19.5psi on a hot intercooler due to a ****ty cooling fan on the Dyno. This set-up also took me to a 12.9@106 on my first 2 passes down the track on a 95 degree day.

I really hope you don't think that you can just slap a bigger turbo on your car without supporting mods. There is alot to take into consideration. You will need capacity to deliver more fuel to the motor to support the higher flow rates of whatever turbo you decide to go with (i.e. Fuel Pump and Injectors). You will need something to manage the increased fuel capacity(i.e. ECU Reflash or piggyback/stand-alone). You will need something larger to cool the charge of compressed air coming from the new turbo (i.e. Upgraded Intercooler). And you will need a higher flowing exhaust (i.e. no catalytic converters, up-pipe and 2.5" to 3" turbo back exhaust).

I am more than happy to provide you with any information that I can but you smart-assed comments are not appreciated.

How true!

2 out of every 3 new threads are useless - they've been covered before. Plus we're STILL getting the daily "Which BOV will give me the most hp" and "What's the best CAI" threads. It's to the point now where if anyone wanted any real info about these topics they would have to search FOREVER through the crap to find any real info. You gotta do research with the search button, that's all there is to it.

The HKS DP replaces the stock DP and 3rd cat pipe. TXS exhaust has a bit different set up. I know that TXS has an adpater which allows people to use a TXS stealth back with any exhaust which replaces the stock cat back, but I don't know how this would translate in your situation. Personally I think you will be fine with the TXS exhaust and the HKS turbo, and I am pretty sure that the HKS does not sport the nifty 4" bellmouth of TXS.

No crap, I think thatís what annoys me the most. Reading though thread after thread of meaningless garbage, and uneducated posts. To top it off, running the actual search takes for ever due to recent server performance. try searching for a topic that was hashed to bits years, even months ago, and all you find is threads that say 'do a search n00b'. One is left piecing small bits of information together. I've been here a while now, I browsed around for quite a long time before I actually joined.

the majority of people in the world are dumb and lazy, you'll never get away from that, and thus there will always be 'which BOV is best' threads. Those of us that choose to respond to these threads need to take care and educate our fellow new member. Likewise the newbie needs to learn respect and not take everything as an attack on them. Danny619Boy initial response was uncalled for, cjm04WRX was going a step beyond the initial question saying that there are cheaper and better way's. I'd hate to see this compound where experts won't help the new guy, and new people are intimidated by the experts, and watch this board turn into other boards out there that are completely useless.


Brian - Not a n00b!

The problem would be in mating the turbo to the downpipe if there is a problem at all. I would think this could be fixed fairly easily by a competant exhaust shop..
