Default Next step-EWG or a set of ELH before my injector instal/tune

Gang-
Looking for some opinions on my next mod before I have my Cobb 1000cc injectors installed. I had my heart set on throwing on either the Perrin or Killer B headers before I drop off my 2014 WRX for the injector instal and tune. Then I was looking over most build threads and it seems that many have added an EWG when jumping to this next level. My question is should I spend this "header" cash on an EWG first? In all honesty I'm not a huge fan of the EWG dump sounds so would probably have it rerouted to keep the sound down. I have noticed quite a bit of flutter running 19-20 pounds of boost this winter and wonder if an EWG might help. Is the stock wastegate able to handle a solid e85 tune? Also noticed turbosmart has an aftermarket internal wastegate?

I'm currently running a stage 3 torqued performance tune with Cobb intake, ebcs, Perrin Tmic, gfb response bov, nameless dp, Cobb up pipe, Perrin pulley, aem 320 fuel pump, and SPT exhaust.

Thanks for the advice!

The EL manifold is a logical choice to improve power and spool. The EWG is more of personal preference at your current level of modification.

I would not look at this in an 'either-or' type of way, but rather decide if you want to run an EWG in the long term, or not. The EWG will require significantly more time tuning the boost control maps - if you're paying for your next tune by the hour, this is something to consider.

Sounds good, thanks for the feedback. I rather not spend more money on another up pipe for the EWG as well if I don't have to.

I vote for new turbo inlet and tgv deletes at the same time as your injectors. Then if you still have cash buy your header.

Get the headers, a quality header like killer b will offer far more efficiency and performance for your motor than an ewg will, and hopefully give you far more longevity out of your motor. If you're having boost creep issues get your turbo ported and polished along with your waste gate.

Headers going on this weekend! Praying I don't miss the uel rumble but I'm sure I'll like the power gains! Turbo inlet sounds like my next piece as well. The sickness continues...

Turbo inlet isn't going to be a very good bang-for-the-buck part - it's better used as a way to simplify the engine bay and maintenance.
