-parallel fuel rail setup
-lightweight pullys
-intake manifold and heads ported and polished
-Exhaust studs to manifold Heli-coiled for strength
-manifold cool-tec heat wrapped (faster spool)
-intake manifold chevy red (+5hp!)
-WRX TD-04 turbo
-93-96 WRX intercooler
-samco hoses on intercooler
-coolant lines removed from TB
-scooby sport 3" downpipe

That port-work must really free up a lot of power if he's running 13s on 12psi!! Could also be the gearing. Adam said my car was a mid-13s car at 14.7psi!!

Here's my mods (powerwise):
TD05-16G, STi v2 TMIC, HKS 3" DP, 2.5" Tanabe turboback/cat.

I'm currently running anywhere between 16-17psi nowadays.

One question about the above-mentioned car. Does it have bigger injectors (especially if it's running 20psi )? I know my injectors are pretty much static at 18psi. I've been trying to source some true drop in replacements but have come up short.
