from what dan is saying, you can throw everything at it taht you want, but that stock turbo isnt going to do it for you. Im waiting for Dan's new garrett turbokits to come out then you will be doing 400+whp no problemGAK said:
You will need, in my opinion:GAK said:
Hmmm...I'm not sure that is what he was saying. I think he was saying that he only wanted to do bolt-ons, and porting the wastegate on the stock turbo would not fall into that category.staticx313 said:from what dan is saying, you can throw everything at it taht you want, but that stock turbo isnt going to do it for you.

I guess we would need to define what "maxed out" means. Some tuners (Vishnu) are running a lot more boost than Dan, so the turbo doesn't appear to be maxed out. Now whether or not they are out of the eff range of the turbo is up for debate. I've never seen a map for the VF39 so I can't tell.staticx313 said:"Yeppers. That's what I got on my stage II with 110 unleaded race fuel. THe turbo really was maxed out which is why HP was limited. Not much more power out of the headers but a lot more torque. On pump fuel torque jumped from 208 to 223 ft lbs at the wheel just by switching to the GT Spec header. HP held steady at around 310 whp from run to run. You can not get 400 HP on pump but you CAN get over 400 ftlbs of torque at the crank on pump. THe header helped a lot with knock resistance and smoothed out the power curve nicely."
"Actually new turbo is probably recommended to get good top end. THe stock unit can NOT hold boost at all and is pathetic on the top end which is why it peaked so early and also why we could not get much more power past 312 whp. Just nothing left in her." - Dan @ clubwrx.net
That rocks man. I know Im definitely buying from you then. Thank you for the other info too . So have you got my exhaust sent out yet hehe man Im so anxious im about to die. Just watned to make sure the fax went through and everything.Guru said:Yes Robert, I will provide base maps for all EManage and UTEC systems. Larger TMIC is not recommended on STi due to larger displacement of the motor which makes it a poor performance value. FMIC is recommended. Also, you may run into problems on a lot of the turbo kits with the TMIC's as well as fitment issues since the brackets are different on the STi TMIC.
