I still have it but it's been sitting in my Garage broke for the last couple months. the new Engine is going into it this week and hopefully have it on the road soon. Then probably sell itGraham said:You're still driving the RS Eric? I thought you dumped the Scoob?
The turbo was most definately the cause of my motor blowing up. But, it isn't the turbo's fault. It's mine. The kit is great. The electronics I didn't choose to buy to protect my engine is entirely my fault. And as a result, I am without my car and have been without my car for over 2 months. So, do it right the first time. As for the power of the car with just 4-5 lbs of boost? Well the WRX in stock form will not beat it. Never. It's just a beast off the line. The stock clutch will have to go once you boost your car. It gives away in 3rd, 4th and 5 gears. 100 mph comes up in a heart beat. It's an awesome feeling..I also hope the reason why your engine blew is not cause of the turbo. It was probably the nitrous eh? Nitrous would toast the hell out of any car
Yes, I am also purchasing the J&S Safeguard with a stage 2 turbo kit from ludespeed. I waould also like to know as much as possible about it.Ikestaa said:Has anyone used the J&S Safeguard box that comes with the Ludespeed Stage III kit. If so, what is involved in tuning the motor with this unit. Also, how does it compare with a remapped ECU or a piggyback ECU as far as protection as well as performance. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Very easy to install. It took 1 1/2 days at my friends house with a basic set of tools and jack standsVanillaEps said:Of the people that have purchased a Ludespeed kit for their RS, can you tell me how many of you have installed the kit on your own? I'm planning on getting a kit, and ease of installation is a priority. I don't want to spend an extra $1,000 to have it installed.
I know from reading old manuals, the Ludespeed kit requires the engine to be lifted.....as opposed to the forced air tech that does not require it.....
