Exclamation New parts review inside

Previous to yesterday I was running a stage I UTEC with a blow off valve. In my logs I was starting to see positive manifold pressure by 2500-2700 rpms and a max pressure of 14 psi achieved at around 4000, dropping off quickly to around 10 psi by redline. I also had a rare knock event right at redline.

After the install of an ATR up-pipe that has been heat coated, a BPM turbo back exhaust, and a deadbolt racing Monster TD04 turbo, and an update of the UTEC map, the car is completely changed.

First off, the most impressive number I saw from the log I took after the install. I start to see positive manifold pressure at as low as 1570 rpms, with the boost rising very quickly to 12 psi by 2600 and running in the 13-15 psi range all the way up to around 5800. The boost topped out just under 16 psi at 15.7, but I am certain that I can raise that up to around 17 by opening the auxiliary boost controller screw up another turn or so. With the install, I tightened it back down so that it was only open one turn.

While I won't say the car has ungodly power. I will say that it is immensly faster than a stock WRX and has gobs more torque.
The boost comes on insanely fast and holds to a much higher rpm than with a normal TD04. Low end response is fantastic. So far I am ecstatic with the performance gains that were made yesterday.

Thumbs up

Ok, after two days the car is REALLY starting to feel strong. Low end response is the best of any WRX I have been in. It still doesn't have the total power of a car equipped with an IHI turbo upgrade, but it has very good response. It feels almost as good as the RS did with the supercharger. The response isn't quite as good as it is with a blower, but it is very close, plus the car pulls all the way to redline quite capably now.

Kent,

Did you do a reset after you did the install or are you letting it relearn on its own?

I've been running my Monster TD04 for a couple months with a stage 4 setup(except the STi injectors and some colder plugs which I hope to install this weekend), and I'll just reiterate what Templar says. It does almost feel like a Roots, or Paxton blower.
I get boost well below 2k rpm and I find I use 4th gear in town much more than before and I even use 5th sometimes.
As soon as I get it all tuned with the UTEC, I'm sure that it will REALLY rock.
