Default TD05H-18G ProTuned by Jorge

Three days ago, I got my '04 USDM STi ProTuned by Jorge. Jorge is a great guy........professional, knowledgeable and patient with a curious customer. And I am very happy with the tune he performed on my car.

My mods include the Deadbolted TD05H-18G, Perrin TMIC and Modded Injectors, Walbro Fuel Pump, Cobb Uppipe, Catted Downpipe and Cat-Back.

I have not had the car dyno'd, but it spools quickly and pulls hard to redline. It makes about 19psi boost at about 3200-3300 rpm, and tapers to about 16 psi at redline. The car is very much quicker than stock, and much more fun to drive. Of high importance to me, none of the "drivability" manners of the car were lost. It still idles and cruises like stock, with none of the "quirks" I've seen on other non-stock STi's.

A street tuning session with Jorge is exciting and a bit overwhelming, and I cannot remember most of what he taught me. I do recall him explaining to me that the TD05 gas side turbine is a bit restrictive for the STi, and that if it was a TD06 instead, it might actually spool up a bit quicker.

In summary, Jorge is the best, I love my STi, the AccessPORT is an awesome EMS choice, and the TD05H-18G is a great choice for a daily driver and someone who likes to get to 60 (or even 100 mph) quickly, but it will not give you the power for 11 second quarter miles.

Thanks, Jorge..................Frank

This is the kind of into I was waiting to hear

I have a td05 16G that I am going to have Jerry build into a TD06 18G.

I will be running stock fuel but with alcohol injecton.

Norexyet: Thanks. I appreciate it.

Davenow: I'm no expert, but I really think that the TD06 18G is a great way to go. Jorge told me that at high rpm, he had to run my motor a bit richer than he had anticipated, giving up a little horsepower. This because the TD05H turbine was somewhat restrictive, and so caused things to heat up more than desirable. The larger TD06 will eliminate that restriction so, in addition to faster spool up, you will have less heat and be able to lean things out a bit more without detonation, I'm guessing. With alcohol injection on top of that, your car should be incredible I'd think. Best of luck......Frank

Yeah, that exhaust housing definately bottlenecks that engine setup....it works for low boost/high timing that would be good on an autoX car, but for a daily driver with good topend I'd definately want the td06h.

Hey Frank,

Thanks for the kind words! I'm glad you're liking the car. If there's anything I spewed out that you forgot, don't hesitate to call and ask.

Take care,
Jorge (RiftsWRX)

Frank,
Glad to see you finally got what you wanted.

I'm Dave...
You and I had our cars tuned on the same weekend a long time ago, remember?

I am currently using ECUTek, have a 20G and I'm loving this setup. I guess we both changed our minds about some things (for the better in both cases it seems...).
