Up date on my FPblue is still my car not working proper after i got the 1000cc injectors I have a hesitation on the 2800 rpm
If anyone want to get a bigger turbo make sure you get FMIC and prepare to change your fuel rails

thats odd, what fuel and power levels are you shooting for? ive read so many builds that are making decent power and are still on stock rails.

You need the Cobb Stumble kit or the 2004 to 2007 sti FPR to fix the stumble.
Also, how's the spool and top end on the fp blue?

My retune is almost done through torqued performance and I'm definitely impressed with this turbo, spools pretty quick and smooth. Will be getting dyno numbers down the road to see what it's putting down.

Sadly , my fxt is dead last week. So no turbo upgrade. Im part-out everything.

Rods knock, dont know why. My forged bottom end as 40k miles. Malhe pistons and Manley rods was ok but need new crank, new short bloc and all bearing. I was thinking that king bearing was better than acl but I dont think now .

Should be taking a customers car I built with this turbo to get tuned on July 13th. I will post results. The dyno is a 3300 ASL and is a heart breaker. Really interested to see how it does. I just hope the O2 sensor I ordered comes in when it says it should come in...

Here is the update for that build. Glad we only left the 7 PSI spring in the gate because the guy is already beating the hell out of the car.

With that said due to the 7psi spring Airboy Tuning was only able to hold 15-15.5 psi to red line. Also in Edmonton where the customer is from he gets full spool by 4200 RPM

Nice. Would like to see what the Blue will put down at 20+ psi.

I am getting tuned by Airboy in a month (with the same modifications minus the ELH), curious to see what I put down with my Tomei turbo. Looking at upgrading to the Blue as well if not satisfied.

Words of advice. He prefers worm gear clamps, not tbolt. Check for boost leaks.

If you want more power if you are running a EWG, run a 14psi spring setup. I bet this turbo running 20psi at redline puts down 370whp with the setup this person had. I also know for a fact that 370whp on Airboys dyno will trap 121 mph in Edmonton.

I forgot to mention. The dyno room was 100F.

I do have a 14 psi spring in my EWG.

haha, no boost leaks.

The dyno numbers definitely run on the low side (at Airboy), but nice to know that 370whp equates to 121 mph trap speeds. Wow.

I would be happy with low 300s with my current turbo, but definitely don't mind more power as my STi is my 'slow' car. But it is my 'winter beater' so not chasing crazy numbers.

What is your current turbo?

Stock turbo on a good day on his dyno will put out 270-275

So curious How my gen 2 gtx3071R will do against the blue. My cars still being built then needs to be broken in but I'm so curious if the blue will be a compareable turbo for much much much less

Some of these numbers seem really low. My customers 02 wrx hybrid is making 310/315 at only 16psi peak falling to 14 on stock injectors. Putting in a set of id1050x this week and retuning it using carberry SD.

Does anyone have any updated numbers for the Blue? I am dangerously close to pulling the trigger on one of these but would like some reassurance on the output.

My car made 311/342 with stage 2+ (catless + GS TMIC) on a mustang dyno. I'm not going to pull the trigger until I see that these things are consistently making 350+whp on 93 octane.

Fp performance told me that no reason that the blue does not make 375whp or more.

What's the consensus on spool time vs a dom 1.5xtr. The dyno graphs I've seen look like the blue spools faster and I'm curious if this is the real world experience people are having
