Yes, I've been sitting on this turbo for about 2 and a half years. It was the last of Edmundu's huge part out thread so I got it. After we made the deal, he noticed that there was a crack in the turbine housing. He had a new and upgraded turbine housing shipped to me and I had that ported and coated. For the next year, I gathered parts for the upgrade. Here is my current setup.

-E85 fueling
-Invidia catted dp
-Grimmspeed coated EWG uppipe and dump tube
-Tial 44mm EWG
-Cobb IWG bracket (short)
-Ported and coated stock manifolds
-Grimmspeed ported crosspipe
-Perrin mid and y pipe.
-Prodrive mufflers (stock mufflers until spring)
-RacerX fmic
-Forge Motorsports BPV
-APS solid turbo inlet
-JDM TGV deletes ported
-DW 1100cc sidefeed injectors (true flow is over 1200)
-AVO fuel pump
-AVO 450 BB turbo ported and coated

Tuning Necessities

-V1 Accessport/ECUflash
-Streettuner Advanced tuning software
-Hybrid tuning setup ftw.
-Innovate LC1 WBO2 sensor.
-Grimmspeed 3 port boost control solenoid and MBC (hybrid boost control)


ACT heavy duty street disc clutch
OEM wrx flywheel
TSK3 snout sleeve
Group N tranny mount
Group N motor mounts
Agency Power pitch stop mount


-DBA slotted rotors
-Hawk hps brake pads

Suspension mods

Koni inserts (4 corners)
Tein H Tech lowering springs
Cobb sway bars front and rear
Moog end links
AVO reinforcement brackets

As the car sits, all parts above have been installed and the car is running, however not fully tuned. An updated base map needs to be flashed to the ecu before we go any further. I can tell you that at only 14psi, this thing pulls hard and its street manners are actually more mild than the stock vf40. Not nearly as punchy with smooth power delivery throughout. At least that's what the butt dyno tells me.

This thread will be updated as the car gets further tuned. I'll be posting logs as they come available as well as dyno graphs. This weekend, we will be working on completing a 93 octane winter tune. Springtime will add an E85 tune to the equation. This was being tuned by a tuner, but I've since taken over the workload assisted by member qikslvr. Qikslvr has helped me immensely get to this point so I'd like to thank him publicly for his efforts.

Stay tuned (bad pun)
