What elevation is san diego again?SixSick6 said:Or lucky to have found one in good shape for so cheap, or have access to welding supplies at your disposal, and the list goes on.
Granted to you had a cracked piston in 4, but you put down only 180hp.
Julio on the other hand had a HUGE rip in his throttle body boot and out down 202hp and 296 fpt :freak:
I second that. Those are some damn fine welds. You make this how-to so much easier than it is in reality. I'm trying to dig in doing the T3 conversion as I have a custom manifold with a T3 flange. All I'm waiting on is the O2 sensor bung pipe and I' ll be ready for my install (plus removing the A/C).rebel2k4 said:One last thing though... those are some beautiful welds on the turbo to manifold. What brand of welder was that? Did you do the welding?
Using a MillerMatic Mig welder with Argon Gas. My good buddy Zach actually did those ones, I'm almost as good...But not quite.rebel2k4 said:One last thing though... those are some beautiful welds on the turbo to manifold. What brand of welder was that? Did you do the welding?
I'm very happy with the overall performance. In my opinion, makes for a great turbo for this motor. Spool up is very quick (though about 1k later than the stocker) and it will hold whatever boost I like up to fuel cut. and considering the fun I have on stock fuel at 10-11 psi, there's lots of room to grow with chip/pump/cam.JC91MX6 said:Correct. Very big upgrade for the WRX. My dad who owns an STi was considering this turbo. Supposeed to be a real good setup. Yours looks good. Hows the overall performance?
Ah, you missed the edit...JC91MX6 said:The STi comes stock with a VF-22.
