  1. Borgwarner 6758 has the flow for 300wkw and spools about the same as a big VF. 6258 will spool faster but obviously less flow. They will fit in the stock location but obviously not on the stock flange so a custom uppipe/downpipe is required.
  2. Funky's was surely twisted wasn't it? Cos for a while he was running a good old GT3071R.
  3. See if you can find a Zerosports World League. I had one on my V7 a while back and it had a really nice sound to it, not loud at all, but much nicer than stock. Has a hard power limit of about 235wkw though as it's only 2.5" and quite restrictive. Also it's been said before but you are probably getting heavily overcapitalised into a 200000km WRX, but at the same time heaps of people have done similar and had fun so whatever
  4. A 4000rpm clutch drop isn't exactly a launch, did it even chirp the tyres? There's at least a few people out there that just use the rev limiter as launch control. Not saying it's good for the car but it doesn't just instantly break it.
  5. Borgwarners are magical. Throw an 8474 at it and find out what your block can do. I don't know s***e about the G series, sorry.
  6. Gonna sound ruthless but like.... learn to drive better? I literally never had this issue with my 5 speed GF8. Also: -Worried about damaging car -Gets it tuned to make more power -Asks about launching it Wut.png
  7. Exhaust leaks sound like a tractor, not a whooshing. Maybe get it smoke tested?
  8. I'm pretty sure the AFM thing is like... an urban myth or something. So many people out there running oiled K&Ns for years with no issues. If it bothers you, take the AFM out every service and spray it with AFM cleaner or something.
  9. So it does, good spotting. Quick maths says this one probably approx. 177wkw. As you say, still a good number from a TD04.
  10. whp? From a TD04? What was the TCF on the dyno, that's a crazy number.
  11. Partsouq, but you'll need the part number.
  12. Nah, they both top out at ~230kw, BB centre doesn't even make the VF22 spool better. The only worthwhile VF upgrade is the VF34 which spools about 400rpm earlier than the VF30 and is disgustingly responsive. Pretty rare though.
  13. If you don't have a hoist pulling the motor is way way easier than wrestling with a 6MT underneath the car.
  14. Tick up the flywheel and deal with it later You probably won't have the engine out again in the time you own the car (hopefully?) so may as well do it.
  15. Have you resolved the massive oil consumption issue yet? No point running the STI intercooler if you don't have the splitter. Never heard of the AC lines thing either. EDIT: Ugh why are you still using multiple accounts? Choose one and stick with it or I'll ban all of them. EDIT2: And using a VPN or something? What in the f*** is going on here? WHY ARE YOU STILL LOGGING IN TO ALL 3 ACCOUNTS AFTER YOU WERE SNAPPED AND SAID YOU WOULD STOP DOING THAT?
  16. I see all the responses about an EJ18T being a bad idea went in one ear and out the other 😅 If you're worried about a Brighton 220 for $1700 being a waste of money, I hate to tell you that building an EJ18T to go in a 200k+ BD2 is.... a giant waste of money. EDIT: But I guess if you must... there's a BD7 with a EJ22E at Pickapart in Wellington. $250 for the long motor, you just have to pull it out yourself.
  17. It is almost never financially viable to do any swap that ends up with something that the factory actually built in the first place. Especially if you can't do all of the work yourself.
  18. My mind is melting at the thought of buying a manual donor car to manual swap an automatic, when presumably you could just... ya know... drive the manual donor car.
  19. Correct. Viscous one. For what it's worth... check the hub bearings out. Mine did something similar and the hub bearing was completely f***ed. Weirdly if you just jacked the car up and kinda rocked the wheel it felt fine, but upon disassembly it was entirely farked.
  20. The 3.0 is a cruiser. It suits the auto.
  21. I'm running the basic Exedy one, with the matching lightweight flywheel. Feels the same as a stock one in terms of pedal feel and engagement. Drove for a few years at 268kw or whatever it made, no worries. If you're taking engine out, make sure to do the rear main seal and the kidney plate (well, you would do these if you were dropping the box out anyway). I'd probably do the rocker covers while it's out. Don't touch the turbo unless you have a specific need to, although since you'll be removing the downpipe you may as well do that gasket.
  22. Power goal? Everything stock location pretty much sucks.
  23. On my V7 they mounted up exactly the same as stock
  24. Use the water spray, and don't cane it when you've been sitting at the lights. I was Captain TMIC for the longest time and I was never like "woah this car is down on power".... I mean, the stock setup doesn't even care about IAT IIRC, it measures the temperature at the AFM.
