I hope so. Should be able to tune it once the weather settles down. It's been hit or miss on the last couple days. Compared to the stock header I think it will definitely be worth it for me.

I'll have this setup at least for the first week of September. Then over the fall/winter I will probably work on figuring something else out. No set plans yet. The motor isn't too crazy so idk how hard I'll push it.

Here are a couple more shots of my 2002 WRX Bugeye with the 2004 STI BBS wheels and WRX hood.

I determined my ID 2000 injectors were installed (by me) with the wrong gaskets. I bought them used and they didn't come with the right ones, so I just used an OEM gasket on the bottom and nothing else. After a little research I found that it needs two gaskets on the bottom and one addition one on the top. I ordered them from ID and they came today so I installed them a little bit ago. Here is a photo.



Left is correct and right is how I had them (incorrect). I noticed it because I had some occasional leaks at idle/rest and then I checked and found that the injectors could move up and down considerably (when the rail was bolted down). With all of the correct gaskets in place the injectors can still rotate, but there is no up and down movement. This should help ensure a good seal on both the top (fuel) and bottom (boost) of the injector.

Do you know if this is with all ID injectors? The 1000s specifically. I don't think I did this....

No. That is a different injector core. The seals will be much more like the OEM Subaru ones with the ID1000. I think the ID2000 may be the only ones like this but I'm not positive.

I bought a cheap ELM Bluetooth adapter in an attempt to run the Torque app on my Bugeye. It wouldn't log live data and I spent the day yesterday trying to figure it out. I eventually have come to the conlusion that it is due to the Carberry ECU ROM. The hardware and app works perfectly on my 2012 Forester. A few others with Carberry have noted the same thing. So far I don't know of any workaround.

I thought my boost gauge was broken (ProSport EVO). It was ready low (vs. the ECU sensor) for a while and then it just stopped reading at all. Just showing 0 all the time.

I figured it was a dead sender, but last night I found that the inline filter was broken completely in half! Big boost leak there! Didn't notice because I'm on speed density.



I replaced it with a straight fitting and now the gauge is working perfectly. Turned the MBC down a little because boost went up a bit now that the leak source has been fixed.

Yes, it wasn't an MBC issue, it wasn't a temp change issue, it was a nice big boost leak. LOL.

i had this issue with my Fuel Injector Clinic 1100's - upon start up it sprayed fuel out from the tgvs - so with fic1100s this is also necessary just thought id add that in here for anyone who may stumble across it.

Good to know! I didn't really even think about it when installing mine, and it wasn't a real obvious leak (no fuel spraying all over), so I didn't pick up on it right away.

Weight reduction since the last time at the track:

Removed all speakers: 5lbs
Swapped to WRX hood: 20lbs
Swapped to 04 STI wheels: 21lbs
Swapped to EL header: 10lbs
Removed front sway bar: 7lbs
Removed rear sway bar: 10lbs
Removed rear bumper beam: 30lbs
Removed scissor jack and tools: 6lbs
Removed trunk liners: 3lbs
Total weight saved: 112lbs

Weights are based on what I could find online. I didn't actually weigh anything myself...

I did a few last minute things last night. Swapped the front right strut (from wagon to sedan). Front left was already sedan so the mismatch was making the camber way off between sides. Then I removed the rear sway bar.

Later in the evening I removed the rear bumper beam. It was a huge pain. I broke all the plastic clips and half of the bolts. Ended up having to cut them off. Tight space so I cut the bolt heads into 1/4's and then snapped them off.

After all that I noticed a transmission fluid smell. Look under and find a huge puddle. Apparently I pulled the axle out of the transmission while swapping the strut and then it leaked a bunch out. I put the axle back in, then did a full drain and fill on the tranny.

Looking forward to the track this weekend. I am hoping all goes well and I can put down a better time than last time!

How much do you think it weighs now?
Almost to the 2800's maybe?

Doubt it unless maybe the gas tank is on E. Probably around 3,000 or a little under with half a tank of fuel and no driver.

Hmm, I thought the bugeyes were 3,000 from factory?

Although, I did forget you have the 6 speed stuff, so that probably added a bunch. Good job on the weight reduction though....110+ lbs is a lot!

This is what is posted on Cars 101:
  • 2002 WRX Sedan 5MT: 3085lbs
  • 2004 WRX Sedan 5MT: 3085lbs
  • 2004 STI Sedan 6MT: 3263lbs
So if we'd assume the STI weight is basically what my car is (GD chassis with 2.5L and 6MT) and I weigh in at 29XXlbs, then that would say I've pulled out 200-300lbs total. I had many other things pulled out prior to going to the track before:
  • Spare tire
  • Trunk floor
  • AC compressor
  • AC condenser
  • Front bumper beam
  • Front U brace
  • Undertray
  • Fender liners
  • Fog lights
  • Lightweight battery
  • Radio
  • Aftermarket uppipe
  • Aftermarket downpipe
  • Etc...
