Made some ramp extensions so I can fit the front lip that’s been collecting dust in my garage.

I have been experiencing some pretty serious over boosting on my sti this winter. I was under the suspicion on a leak or faulty component somewhere. I went ahead and ordered a ECBS two weeks ago and i finally got around to looking into this issue last night. If found that some of the zip ties from my ECBS blew off. All the vacuum lines had oil in them. The vacuum line from the ECBS to the turbo compressor nipple was so swollen that i was able to push it off with my finger tip. I also found the vacuum line going to my EWG was partly melted LoL. None the less, i replace all the vacuum lines with some heavy duty thick 4mm lines i got from amazon. I also went ahead and replaced the ECBS since it had oil in it too. I smoke tested the engine and turbo inlet. Thankfully no leaks from the turbo inlet. Upon further inspection i found the clamp from my intercooler to the turbo was cocked. It looks like that $380 red sti intercooler elbow has seen better days for sure. I repositioned the clamped best i could without removing the intercooler. I moved onto checking the EWG by manually checking it with my hand vacuum pump and borescope. After some further research of how tial EWG's work, i have concluded my EWG is good and operating as designed. So after all of that i was pretty confident i found the problem so i took the car out for a ride. Im back to pushing a healthy 20psi and spitting flames!

Test fit my setrab oil cooler and it just fits nicely.


So I decided to make a mock up bracket for it using C.A.D (cardboard aided design, that is)



Yeah, looks good.



Now need to make the real bracket.

I decided to try AVO post maf intake elbow (I am just itching for mod, so why not).

The claim: increased in interior from 70mm to 80mm for greater than 10% better airflow and sizable increase of 8 CFM over factory.







The only part I don't like is the pipe did not have provision for the notch on OEM airbox. So I had to carefuly cut it to size or else is not going to fit properly for good seal.




And damn it does work. Datalog shows increased in MAF G/S from 296 g/s to 300 g/s, and reduced time by 0.5 seconds for 3rd gear pull from 2000rpm to 7200rpm.

Learning something new everyday I guess.
