  1. I agree with keeping the list longer, helps people build up a better idea of what mods get you where. Model: 2002 BE5D Legacy Displacement: 2l Mods: ej20 cdb, v7 wrx big port heads with v7 sti cams, wossner 92mm pistons, v7 sti rods, HX35 holset with 56mm inducer, 86 exducer billet compressor 14cm turbine housing. high compression ratio (8.8-9.?), flex fuel tuned to E40, decapped pink injectors, walbro fuel pump, link g4+, FMIC. Fuel: BP98 (242kW) / E40 (305 kW) Tuner/dyno: SAS/ @gotasuby Dynapack
  2. What heads are you running? some avcs heads could be fun.
  3. Flex fuel was the best decision I made, hands down. Just buy the generic Continental sensor and wire it up. If I wasn't so pig headed and knew what I knew now I would have flex fueled a vf37 and got similar power and torque to what I have with a Holset for $3k cheaper ( @gotasuby limited the tune due to my shortblock strength as I'm running factory head studs and rods, and I not saying that in a bad way).
  4. Or ethanol! (gave me a couple of hundred rpms difference)
  5. As per above, fit a flex fuel and instantly gain 40-60kW. Not worth half doing the turbo sorry. Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk
  6. Is there any difference between the 5 spd and 6 spd pitch stops? (I have a clunking sound during engine braking which has occurred since my 6 spd trans swap.) Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk
  7. Pretty sure the smallest hx35 twin scroll housing is 12cm, they make an hy35 single scroll housing which is 9cm.
  8. In my car I have a pressure sensor in place of the factory pressure switch connected to the link. It is running limits on minimum oil pressures to protect the engine (Thanks @gotasuby!). At the track day my oil pressure limits kicked in doing what they were supposed too, but I was wondering how many others log oil pressure at track days and found something out of line? Mine was hitting 38 psi @ 3400rpm and 48 psi @ 6000rpm, I think factory minimums are 43psi @ 5000rpm. Water temp didn't go above 95C and I was running Castrol Edge 5w-40SN. (side note, I'm going to try some ACEA A3/B4 spec oil next oil change, and maybe some ACEA E7-9 diesel oil after that. A3/B4 apparently has a better shear spec, and the diesel stuff forgos the fuel efficiency additives for better shear/durability while meeting the A3/B4 specs, this is probably splitting hairs but still interesting)
  9. Sorry, I didn't read your first post properly. I have used the ultra grey as gasket sealant on my sumps when installing them, not sure how it might work without clamping pressure (not quite sure how you intend to use it). It was quite regularly recommended (the grey one) on NAISOC so just took the advice from there, I haven't had an issue with it.
  10. +1 for Permatex Ultra Grey. Used it a couple of times now. Just don't be to stingy with it, I got caught once. Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk
  11. Stick with the factory airbox and just get a replacement filter. You can get people to look at the TCU settings, I've heard this can make the car feel a bit better between shifts (in the auto). Not sure if Rapid do this however.
  12. I'm used to doing most jobs on my car twice. I now budget for it.
  13. If I could afford that shortblock the rest would be already sorted! Sent from my E5823 using Tapatalk
