Alright guys, so this weekend is dedicated to my first major mod list on my 06. BNR 20G, tgv deletes, 8mm phenolic spacers, DW 740cc injectors, DW 200 pump, Exedy clutch, Exedy flywheel, perrin turbo inlet, and oil lines. Then down to chicago for a tune on wednesday at P&L. I already have a bunch of stuff done like megan one piece catless header/up, invidia catless dp, magnaflow cbe, k&n typhoon intake, cobb lightweight pulley, cobb bpv, gs ebcs, torque solution tmic, avo tb hose, Cobb sts and bushings, battery in the trunk and a cobb AP on stg 2 at the moment. Ill be sure to post dyno sheets and track times as soon as they open. Wish me luck! :icon_chee

Nice, good luck!

740's seem small for a 20g...

subymike 03-22-2013 12:34 PM

i was told they were good till about 450 hp. so im hoping thats true :/

Looks to be a fun set-up!! Good Luck!!

Where in MI are you located? I'm in Kzoo.

Yeah you should be good as long as your not running E85. That is a lot of stuff to tackle yourself in such short time, GL.

Also its not ideal to run both LWFW and lightweight pulley.

im in south haven. and i was planning on getting a tune for pump and e85 actually... should i be worried? and i have a buddy of mine helping. so far weve got it down to the manifold, inlet and tgvs all off.

subymike 03-22-2013 02:55 PM

on a good note tho, the turbo (assuming it wasnt replaced before i got it at 92,5xx) has 120k and ZERO shaft play at all! :) so i may be selling it if anyone might be interested in it.


Okay so now that i actually got the turbo out, there is a little bit of shaft play, not much tho

Yes, I am almost positive that you will be maxing out your 740's with E85. Talk to your tuner and see what he says. 740's should be fine on pump gas.

Your not doing a LWFW are you ?

I see you have a LW crank Pulley.

My tuner wants me to go 850s vs. 740s for E85 on a 16G at 3600' ASL. Talk with your tuner and make sure they understand you want E85 as well because I think you'll run out of headroom if your planning on corn.

subymike 03-22-2013 04:46 PM

... well crap. i hope it does okay at least.. i wasnt originally planning on doing e85, but i figured for another 100 bucks for another map.. well why not? i guess we will see what happens

and as far as the pulley.. since im doing a lwfw, it sounds like i should prolly go back to my stock pulley?

wpmarky 03-22-2013 05:18 PM

I did LWFW and LWCP no problem, tho the discussion is 50/50 on whether or not it's ok.

I love the combo, it makes downshifting faster & alot more fun. Heel/toe is noticeably easier with the LWCP.

I would recommend 850's if you go e85 on anything bigger than a 16g.

careercadaver 03-22-2013 07:27 PM

I've not liked the reviews for the LWCP either...kinda scared me away from that set-up.

idiot4hire 03-22-2013 07:43 PM

i have both lwcp and lwfw it vibrates way too much. i am switching to a wrx flywheel

subymike 03-22-2013 09:51 PM

Well ive still got the stock pulley if i feel i should switch back. So far everything but the flywheel is taken off. Everything has been going pretty smooth so far. (Knock on wood) tomorrow begins the install process!
