<-- also interested in this upgrade.
I apologize if I've mislead you guys; my project is a 2002 WRX with a EJ257 engine.

-A WRX/STi TB will not bolt right up; an adapter plate must be fabbed, or use smaller bolts and relocate the IAS slot.

-I'm using a vacuum pump. See

-I'm using a custom fuel system with 1000 cc/min injectors, so I'm no help there either.

-It's going to be close on the hood clearance, but I think it will work, because I have a FMIC, and I'm using the CF reverse cowl.

If you guys are still interested, I'll report back the bottom end is finished (waiting on bearings from Folger).

Thanks for the help, folks!
