How many whp/wtq should I be at with this setup? I'm already at 240/320 I wanted to get 300/350
and I hope I don't blow diff with that power :/
Anybody else input or confirmation would be a big help!
I want to do the VF48 instead of 39, I heard lots of problems with a 39, and being a college student I need a reliable car!
Sti tmic and VF48, plus walb. Fuel pump
Do I need the heat wrap and BC if its not a crazy summer tune? I'm going conservative so I don't blow it up!
I'm not too sure about numbers but if you hit more than what you want, just tune down the boost
I wrapped my DP and UP to prevent heat soak along with getting a ceramic coating on them and although it's not necessary to wrap them, I highly suggest it. A new boost controller is always a good idea, especially if you want to go with the EWG setup. I am installing my EWG with the MBC + EBCS (aka Hybrid boost control setup) tomorrow and I have a thread around here somewhere with the different boost control setups. Get an upgraded BPV (not BOV) if you think the stocker may blow/leak. FYI, the EWG is always beneficial as it is able to control boost a LOT better than an IWG.
Here's that thread I was talking about
Page 2 is where I mention what parts I purchased to run my EWG setup as well as a clip of what my car sounds like with my pre-EWG mods
P.S. If you do wrap any exhaust components, they will produce white smoke for the first several heat cycles (aka running your car then letting it cool). This is normal, so don't get paranoid when it happens
