well i need to remove the stock auto tranny and swap that in with an 99 outback 5spd tranny as well as drive shaft and diff and axels. the reason that the engine is out cause the valve cover gaskets were leaking. then while it was out she is having an 02 wrx headers, up pipe, 92 legacy turbo, hks down pipe, 3 inch custom exhaust, sti injectors, walbro 255 fuel pump, oil cooler, greddy bov. then it has the fmic with all stainless steel fmic piping with all tig welds. looks good when all installed. the turbo is goning to put out about 8.50 psi which should be enuff. then i have the greddy e manage installed to control the injection and timing. it is going to be tunned by a compnay in long island named moto imports, jr there knows the e manage well so he will be tuning it on the dyno.

sounds like you are doing it the right way, should be fun. however, that turbo is quite small for the 2.5 liter engine, since you are gonna have the upgraded fuel system and engine management i would go with something larger like a VF39 or at least a wrx turbo td04, but obviously its your car just trying to help get you some more power

looks good.

but the engine isnt built up at all im maybe looking for turbo pistons and then going with a wrx/sti turbo but we will see. trying to see what other people are running maybe even build up the whole engine and go standalone.

you need to ask build questions in aftermarket forced induction, not PPB. but search first, there are tons of threads on builds already.

The rbh5 is going to be way too small for a FMIC. Even a stock wrx turbo woud suffer from lag with a FMIC.

^^^bingo. obviously it will be a trade off since you want the FMIC but seriously that turbo is too small for both the engine and an FMIC.

well from looking at the avo kit and what it offer it says 220 whp. alot of people (tuner, all my buddys) think the car should do at least that maybe more, the fmic has 2 inch piping to it and 3 inch leading out of it. the turbo is small for lower end power cause i also have the outback tranny so it is gonna be all low end power.

you arent gonna make 220whp on that turbo on the 2.5liter at 8psi, so i dont know why they think that or more. you just wont be flowing enough air, the AVO kit runs a much larger turbo compared to the RBH5.

GotTurbo - w/ the Outback 4.44 set-up, you'll be able to spool the turbo quite quickly even if it's relatively large. The stock WRX turbo will not sufficiently provide enough velocity to allow for no lag w/ the FMIC set-up. Do yourself a favor and get a bigger turbo now while the install would be still relatively easy. The smallest we'd suggest is a VF22, otherwise any of the AVO's or one of our P-series hybrids would fit the bill nicely

Why an OB trans? It is the same as the GT and Impreza RS trans except for 5th gear.
The OB 5th will have the engine winding out on the highway (like 3900RPM+ @ 80 MPH).

Just curious.

A 16g might be a good choice of turbo, but it still might be a bit small for a large FMIC. What size is your core? Do you have a link to where you got the IC?

If I was you I would do the trany swap. Save up for an ej22T block or STI block, get a large turbo and larger injectors and then go to down on the thing.

Are you going to run the emanage was a MAF or MAP system? I heard it has issues with MAP, but for tuning it really makes it easy to use a MAP system.

Good luck.
