What size turbo is it then? And what size injectors. My cars at that point where alls I have let is a bigger turbo and some injectors and I'll be in that range.

Yeah with that kinda horse power I'd be looking. Probably like a 20g or a Dom2.5 and some 1000s. I'd make sure it's tuned well. And try and find out if the internals have been touched. Stuff starts breaking at that point.

Default Re: Whats new on your Subaru?

sometimes you buy a car and get a great deal. sometimes you buy a car thinking you are getting a good deal but doesn't turn out to be what you expected. I can't say i've gone through either of these emotions with my STI but its getting to the point where I want to get rid of it more and more.

so it all began with a little smoke. Car was running fine when driving normal but would smoke when i'd get into the higher boost levels. i removed one of the intake pipes and noticed oil in them so i knew the seals in the turbo were caput. I thought to myself, might as well just take the turbo off and rebuild it and check over all the other parts that go with it to make sure everything is alright. So i ended up pulling the turbo out and in the process i've noticed a few issues. there was exhaust soot all over the mid section of the turbo and one of the nuts holding the turbo down was suspiciously easy to take off (wasn't tightend at all) two small holes in my intercooler piping and a few busted exhaust gaskets. I know its not a huge deal but what makes me angry is that while i'm taking everything off i can see that people got lazy when putting this car together. how it ran so good for so long? i have no clue, but i'm glad i've caught all the issues and i'm fixing them the right way. i'm pretty sure this car is going to run 100% different once its all done.

on with the pics. turbo looks dirty because i was trying to put it back in when i remembered that i needed gaskets.

20g


holes in the pipes



gasket


plan is to weld up the holes and heat wrap them all just to form another barrier around the pipe, and also add some extra pipe joints around the wrap in areas that rub. replace all exhaust gaskets with new ones. needless to say its been a fun time finding all this shit

I've never had a stock turbo. I think it's a good bump up. A lot of people get a 16g so a 20g should be pretty good upgrade. If you get a turbo, be ready to do intake, fuel upgrades, exhaust upgrades and bigger top mount intercooler or front mount, plugs, and of course tune.
