My Turbo just went out last night. Anyone got any tips on swapping to a bigger turbo and STI intercooler? Just bought full Cobb turbo back exhaust and access port and havent even got to install them yet. Will I have to get a special map from cobb vs the stage 2 map that is already preloaded on the access port if I go with bigger turbo and cooler?

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum and you have lots of reading to do:

http://www.subaruforester.org/vbulletin/f87/how-go-faster-than-sti-cheap-8337/

Use the search feature here, we've organized a ton of great information. If you can take that AP back I would, and go get a pro-tune. AP is a generic tune that will work on any XT, pro-tune will optomize your exact setup at your exact altitute on your exact motor if you get what I mean.

Where in California are you? Different areas have install days (we host them in NorCal), and we can help you with installation...beers and tri-tip usually help pay for that...
