Hmmm I like it....didn't even consider doing it a factory color. I think I'm gonna have to do that eventually. Love me some SRP.....expensive tho.

The convenience is worth every bent fin. I just go through with tweezers a few times a year to straighten them out real quick.

Got a new spinny thing. Hope to install in a couple weeks....probably blow up the week after that. Just have a few more items to figure out. Also more reading on tuning.

Blouch 16g-xtr (8cm)

Shipping is quick when you're only 1 hour away from Blouch. Didn't want to go too large and lose the fun backroad low end response....so we'll see how I like it. If I get bored I'll sell it for an 18g or something.








My waaaayyyy overkill injectors. Got lots of recommendations for these.....supposed to idle super smooth so we'll see.

Also leaves more room for future cool stuff, like e85 or a much larger turb.






Was going to do a rotated tmic set up like I always wanted, but backed out last second. Figured it would be smarter to get something that just bolts up for now, while I figure out the whole tuning thing.

What I'll end up doing, is buying the hotside for the Borg Warner turbo I wanted, and using it to make a rotated set up. Could slowly work on that inside using my mock up engine. The Borg turbine housings are only like $150-$200.

-------


For me:

Oil change, 185,200
No more old style, yellow, purolator grippy filters. Blue is the new lame style. Pic so I remember.

Guess it's time to cut up the shroud again.

08+ sti tmic

Just a few more parts to get/figure out, but shooting for next weekend to install everything.



I did a quick install on my mock up engine with the 16g-xtr and I think it'll fit without much issue. Just gotta figure out a passenger bracket and slightly change the drivers side one.

The wastegate stuff is clear by a mile. Ive read that with a factory style iwg the tmic would hit the actuator.....but this turbo has the actuator more off the to side.





The only thing I'm seeing so far that could be an issue is the coolant hardline on top of the turbo. It's REALLY close, but I think it'll just barely fit. Maybe a small spacer if needed.

Not gonna be much left of the shroud.

The last thing I'm hung up on, is boost controllers.

What's the real differences from the mac 3 port or other industrial ebcs, from the name brand aftermarket Subaru ones? Are there really internal differences....or is it just the plug and play connector and being able to bolt right up to the factory bracket?

I've also considered just drilling restrictor pill and continue using the factory ebcs. Is that even something I should consider? Or not worth it?

That 16g should be a fun turbo. 90% of aftermarket boost controllers for subarus are a MAC 3 port valve with spiffy connector and a cool sticker, resold for double the cost. Just buy a MAC valve, some 2 wire GM weatherpack connectors and splice it in. I would suggest going to a 3port for your setup to better control boost and improve response.

seals and internal lubes are differnet for engine bay heat. heard this direct from mac. but i still use a standard valve and it doesnt like temp changes

Well based off this and talking to other people, 3 port seems like the way to go. I'll forget about drilling the restrictor pill.

Hmm interesting.

One of the aftermarket Subaru ones....I won't say which.....say they use the MAC valve but claim they worked with MAC to make one that's more suitable for car stuff.....different valve, coil, seals.
