Impreza WRX STi Ebc

What is the best EBC out there for an 05 STi. I've been looking for one and would like to get some feed back on some that people have experienced with their 05 STi. I was going to go with a MBC but my buddy just blew his engine and he pretty much new what he was doing and the MBC malfunction according to the dealer. So i would like to go with an Electronic version so i can control it from the cockpit.

No, he was pretty new at what he was doing. He didn't know what he was doing per se. EBC and MBC are bad on these cars, you get boost surge, overboost, and blown engines. The STI can handle alittle more boost than stock but not before the ECU cuts the fuel. You are alot better off not wasting your money on one of these and get some Engine Management to up your boost and have it properly tuned.

Also, this should have been in Factory 2.5L Turbo Performance forum.
