Default Pics of my EJ18T

I don't have too many close-up engine shots. It's all pretty much stock WRX stuff. I'm running about 6 psi right now. It's very fun. FWD too. Any questions or comments are welcome. Thanks to all who I got parts from!

Actually, the pic is deceiving. I think that's a heater hose. I'm completely broke right now, so once I get paid, I'll be buying some vacuum line. I'm PMing you now about the FPR. Thanks man!

Congrats and welcom to the 1.8T club. How much boost are you running? What pipe setup? What about fuel?

Just realized I need a new picture of my engine bay...

I'm running about 6 psi right now. It's all stock WRX exhaust, with all the cats gutted out. For fuel, I'm using 370cc Silvia injectors, WRX pump, SAFC modded to read MAP, and an SVX FPR is in the mail.

If you don't mind me asking, how much did the conversion cost?

Thanks,

I think it costed me right around $2000. The hood is what put me over. I was planning on doing a FMIC, but then scraped that idea. I really bargain shopped for a lot of this, and even got some stuff free. I'll eventually tally up my receipts.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to drive a 2.5 or even get a run with one. I can't imagine a 2.5 liter car having the power of this though, you know what I mean?

At 6psi, my brothers 1.8t awd was dead even with my RS until 5th gear. He started to pull in 5th. My RS has Intake, header, hi-flo, cat-back, and light weight crank pulley. With scoobyimprza's car being fwd, it should definately be faster than a stock 2.5.

I pieced it all together by buying parts from other members online. Just research what you need and what you wanna pay for your parts, and you should be able to find it all.
