My plan:
Cone intake (brand unsure)
AMR catted exhaust system
AccessPort stage II
Maybe coil overs....(debating with ride quality, curb clearance, wife's approval)

I was fearful of losing the factory warranty, but I asked the service dept manager and he told me as long as my mods are not directly related to the fault then ill be straight.

The wheels look nice! When I asked wheeldude they indicated 22lbs for the 18x8.5" +48 offset. I was going to order them but they said 2-3 month wait for gun metal or hyper silver since it's special order! Which offset do you have?

Dropped off my car at IAG in MD yesterday I will be going back saturday to get my car back after the tuning session with Jorge.

Mods for this weekend:

Blouch TD06 20g 8cm turbo
GT spec II UEL and Up Pipe
Perrin FMIC
Fuel pump
850cc injectors
Grimmspeed boost solenoid
Spark Plugs

Tune w/ Jorge @ IAG md

Anyone want my stock stuff?

sounds good! I'm another one looking at options for something beyond stage2. sounds like you have a good setup planned. be sure to update us if you can pry yourself out of the driver's seat

Default Re: llTomTomll's Journal - SSM '08 STi -TD06 20g FMIC

New Set up:

Bouch TD06 20g 8cm
Perrin FMIC
DW 850cc inj
grimmspeed boost solenoid
walbro fuel pump
Prosport headers up pipe
P&L HighFlo big maf intake
1 step colder plugs
Invidia catted DP
Megan Racing CBE


First, I got to thank Rick, JJ, Jorge, and the whole IAG crew!!!
Rick went above and beyond in helping get my set up. IAG customer service is fantastic.

I got my tune from IAG and Jorge today and man it was awesome. I got back in the evening driving on 695->795->95-> 495->66-> local roads. Man the car is f'n sick. The car drives so smooth and it has so much power.

I mode: 265hp 221tq @ 12.4 psi

drives smooth and boring


S mode: 294hp 293tq @ 14.03 psi

drives smooth and the power comes in gradually throughout the powerband. It definitely has more power then the S# on stg II. Especially over 70 mph. The car just keeps going on strong.


S# mode: 361hp 352tq @ 20.55 psi

Holy Sh#t !
Im guessing the 8cm housing on the TD06 20g turbo helps with the high end power of the car. The car is a beast! Power again comes in smooth and fast. It is nothing like stg 2 maps. Before the car would just power out after 3500rpm, but now the power just keeps coming at all gears and at all speeds.


Im not sure if my gauges are right, but the car is telling me I am at 29.6mpg. This is after the tune and me flooring the car half the time on the highway I also noticed on the highways the car actually runs more quietly. +1


The car is a real dream. the car sounds so damn sexy, whether it is from the P & L big MAF intake or the uel hearders. The car has a different sound to it and I f'n love it . I cant describe in words how awesome the car is now. Speechless

I will post of pics and graphs up tomorrow
