I miss that and it has been nice to see people come together a bit lately..hopefully we can keep it going. Thanks.

Will definately think about putting together a tuning tutorial. Will let you know if it comes together. Thanks for the support.
I hate having to revert to the forum when I get ready to do something on the car. I would send you $10. Shoot if you send me the guide I will print as many copies as you want (in color both sides) on my thermal printer and bind them with covers and all.

Now if you can get az to add some link tuning info to it also.

I was interested in your setup and had questions about it if you get the time.

Can you tell me about you t3t/4 setup. I saw it in your profile. I'd prefer to run something like that. What did you do for an up-pipe and down-pipe do you have any pics? what size ar was your compressor and turbine?

couple of questions-can 2004 usdm sti fuel pump put out more psi than wrx pump? Crazyhorse by drilling bigger the stock injector holes has got them to flow 600cc w/out affecting spray pattern-this is enough for approx 480 crank hp-I think-is it 5cc=1hpx 4 injectors=480 at 100%idc? so on my sti- I could use stock pump-stock fuel pressure and still have 600cc per injector all free. Isn't this a better way to go? Do I still need engine management or will stock ecu compensate-since you are not messing with fuel pressure? How many lph does stock sti pump flow? Anone know?

So, let's say I want to run a vf22. I can just bump up the fp about 10 psi, and make the stockers flow 550cc? has anyone done this?

No, I've not done it, but you'll need a proper fuel pump as well (you may know that, but you didn't mention it).

Yeah, i have a walbro installed. I guess I am just trying to be cheap(if I can safely get away with it) and not buy new injectors.

Stockers turn into ~440*1.11 = 488cc.
Pinks turn into ~550*1.11 = 610cc.

From the 740CC thread, the VF22 was nearing the limit of the pinks, so raising fuel pressure on stock injectors wouldn't be enough. This is assuming you want to use the full potential of the vf22, not run it at 15-16 psi.

These little tricks are great and helpful to the community. This question is not knocking or hating but I think a good one to ask:

Has anyone monitored the fuel pressure while running to ensure after the modification the 1:1 rising rate still rises appropriately all the way through the boost range?

Summit Racing sells gauges for around $20. I got one a while ago, its kinda small, chrome with a white face. Reads up to around 100psi i believe.

And another question: Inside the gauge piece that you would screw into another fitting it should be open so that the pressure can go up into the gauge, but instead it looks like there is a little minerature screw inside of it. Does that make sense? There's the gauge...and then there's the male threaded piece that should have a hole running down the center of it on the inside which is where the pressure runs up into the gauge....well inside my little tunnel it appears to be blocked off by a little thing that looks like it could be unscrewed(backed out/removed) with a eye-glass mini-screwdriver.

Am i crazy for seeing this or is it supposed to be there? anytime i've tried to apply pressure to gauge with my mouth i get Absolutely nothing. i dont know if im supposed to remove that thing or not. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Your mouth can't produce any pressure that could be seen on a 100 PSI gauge. Try using an air pump to test it.

Well i figured that since i've been able to generate around 2-4 psi on a 20psi boost gauge then i should be able to see some sort of movement on the fuel gauge. Not a lot but at least see something move. Ok well i guess i'll have to hook it up and see if i still get nothing. Maybe you are right or maybe there is in fact a plug in it. I guess i'll find out shortly!

Awesome mod, btw. I'd do it except that im going to do the injector mod and 740cc/min is plenty of fuel for me so i'll just stick to that.

If you screw it up, then buy the STi. BTW, the stock WRX one is $53

Isnt the dimple actually on the side towards the firewall and not on the top? on the top their is the barb for the manifold pressure reference hose. So the dimple is on the opposite side from the fuel exit side. Right?
