well, it's been said before and i will say it again. Read the F & Q's. they help alot. and searches help too.

and also here is an anwser that will piss you off too. stock driving your car causes damage, that is why engines burn out and die. so Modifying your car at all is going to cut your engines/drivetrains life shorter, esspecially since our engines aren't made for boost.

One last note too. since you are asking these types of questions i'm assuming you are kinda a n00B and don't know to much about whats going on with the turboing. Make sure you know what you are getting yourself into here. Alot of time, and money. Good luck.

try http://www.spdusa.com/ it has a lot of very very useful information.
All of us GC8 owners already know. Our 2.5 is an open sleeves engine block. Your max boost would probably be optimum and safe at around 5psi. Crazee has installed his recently and so far so good. It's do-able, but that depends on how much you are going to spend. Crayzee has spent quite some $$$.

Engine swap will be expensive and enough to buy a new SCION xA or a Toyota Echo. but Engine swap is a very clean solution, looks nice in the engine bay and pass smog check with ease.

as far as I know, in California, all the engine modification parts has to have that CARP sticker or CARB? California Air Resources Board ? to be legal and pass smog check, I'm not 100 percent sure, my friend asked a smog check place to see if any mod is legal and the guy said as long as the parts have that CARP sticker it's fine. What is CARP sticker? I don't know.

try this site http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aftermkt/aftermkt.htm

The car I have now is running between 8 and 10 psi on stock block for about 35k now and seems to be holding up pretty good. I am getting ready to build a 2.2t because I know it could blow at any given second especailly with that much boost. It's fast as hell though. Yes on the clutch. If you do it right 5 psi should have decent relaiablity.

Quite a bit of mis-information in here.
speed_freak27 now owns my old RS-t.


I would highly recommend going in this order

Engine management. Link plus is wonderful

Clutch.

Tune,tune,tune

Turbo.


....Profit!!

Tune tune tune

Unique motorsports makes up and downpipes. The stock WRX I/C will fit with modification.

I can't stress this enough. tune tune tune. Not just road tuning, get it on the dyno.
