Now that one I through of already! I purchased 20ft of fire sleeve which should get me through the whole project an I have been putting it on everything. Speaking if which, if you ever need fire sleeve, these guys have the BEST price and the stuff is identical to DEI's product:

My next post after this one should be with pics of the Twin Scroll EVO 9 FP Red turbo that I plan on running. I got a chance to see it the other day but I was actually going in for a photo shoot so I couldn't take it home yet. I am really excited about finally getting it!

Good luck with your goals, I'll be following along to see how it goes!

Yeah, who in their right mind would put a header on a Subaru with "excess length?" Well for one, Prodrive, when they built Subaru's WRC cars. Many turbo headers are longer than what you think they *should* be

Not going to clog up this guy's thread with a debate, we can go elsewhere or pm it. What I'm saying is it's less efficient. Not that its terrible and that it wont produce power. Look at the new legacy turbo placement.

Agreed! Not to mention the above header (like nearly all WRC headers) has ALS, negating length and the time to spool issue.

As promised, here it is! This is an Evo 9 spec Twin Scroll HTA FP Red. It features the 84mm Flow Advancement Port™cover, an HTA wheel and a 10.5cm hot side.

Seems like a lot of research and thought has gone into this build. Congrats! Everything looks good! Hope it all comes out as you want. Subscribed to updates and very anxious to see a dyno graph.

cursed!! you beat me to it

also there is a deal of resonanace tuning that can be addressed. Not every setup is designed for the most effecient low end grunt.

WRC has ALS for low end and longer runners to help with VE's when approaching choke flow.


Quite anxious to see how this Red will perform.

I'm in the process of putting together my fuel setup and your thread can help me with this. I will also do my due diligence with talking to different Manufacturer's tech support and some local Subaru enthusiasts. I have a Fuelab 140 lph pump on the way.

Glad to see there are more companies coming out with TS kits, after my vf37 install, I have definitely been bitten by the TS bug.

Awesome build, can't wait to see it done! Subscribing.

PM me I you want more info. I have lots of thoughts of how it could have been done better a second time around.

I posted a thread in another forum (exterior) but I figured that I would ask here as well. If anybody has experience with my question in THIS THREAD please let me know. Thanks!

I just got a ton of little things that were holding me up plus my new Moore Performance turbo inlet. It looks very similar to the APS hard inlet only its much larger and curved at the end. I travel a lot during the week for work and I forgot to snap a pict on my way out the door today. Bummer. I should be flying home mid week and I will take picts then.

This seems to fit pretty well. By the way, notice that the inlet does not have a return for a factory style BOV? I run a TiAL and speed density so that works out really well for me. It also makes fitment way easier.
