Input on what mods are next?
 
Need some help on what mods should come next for my 05 LGT. It had the following mods done when I bought the car last month. Wondering what turbo might be best for the set up also?

-Stage 1 Shortblock setup
-Wiseco pistons
-Manley H-Beam Rods
-ARP head studs
-Killer B pickup/tray
-ACL Race Main/Rod Bearings
-OE Gasket Kit
-OE 11mm oil pump

-Machine Shop - Bottom end, clean, bore and hone, deck and blueprint
-Machine Shop - Balance bottom end, pulley to clutch cover
-Machine Shop - Heads, 5 angle valve job, clean, set valve clearance, install new seals
-Machine Shop - Resurface flywheel, clean/chamfer/polish crank
-ACT clutch kit - SB5HDMM
-Inlet Hose 2.4" spigot 08+ WRX 05+LGT black

-High Performance Timing
-Side feed 500cc injectors
-light ecu tune

Thanks for the Help

What are you looking to do?

PNWSubie 04-16-2013 11:02 PM

Not really sure yet, just bump the power a bit. Don't need anything crazy but just looking to see what would be the next best step

Exhaust as in downpipe or just catback?

-fuel pump
-vf-52
-opensource tune
-grimspeed 3port EBCS
-suspension work (bushings, sway bars, endlinks, brake pads)

PNWSubie 04-16-2013 11:28 PM

Vf-52 is a good one? Has full suspension done also. Does need a downpipe though, how easy are those to install?

That's quite a bit of work on the engine there....what turbo does it currently have? Do you know what numbers your car is pushing?

Most people here would be running at least some form of 20G turbo (or similar / bigger) with those sorts of mods and be making at least 350 WHP.

Also, is this car for DD duty? Auto-X? HPDE?

PNWSubie 04-17-2013 12:58 AM

DD car, its running stock turbo now. Next step is probably a bigger turbo, so i was looking at input for that and if I have anything left to do before I hook one up.

IMO at least a 20g if not something a little bigger.

Talk to the Tuner who will tune the car. That's the best info you'll get.

20g or HTA71

+1

Anything bigger than a VF52 and you'll probably need larger injectors and definitely a fuel pump.

Downpipes are super easy to install, but you'll need a tune ready to go for it once it's on or drive it gently to the tuner once it is on.

EDIT: 05's also had the catted uppipe. If that's still stock, might want to consider replacing it with a catless one.

PNWSubie 04-18-2013 12:38 PM

Im thinking a vf-52, dont want to go too crazy here. My 500cc injectors would be fine with it or would you guys rec going up to 750's? Also, whats a decent price for a vf-52 these days? What $$$ am I looking at for pump,turbo, up/down pipe?

700watts 04-18-2013 12:42 PM

knock your self out...you'll find that turbo to be anemic....

That should be it for now. ;)
