05 XT 5MT
Awesome car! I can't wait to see if finished. :Banane35:
Drag racing. Light flywheels are harder to launchAny reason you stayed with the stock flywheel?
Thanks man, its always nice to hear that my work (work? Insanity is more like it lol) is appreciated.There is something about your threads that I find totally fascinating.
You are behind all my mods and inspiration, and not to sound too corny, but your tips and advise have helped cope with my "life issues" as my car is "my escape", modding "el Fox Bestial" has helped keep my sanity straight and probably avoid Prozac.
Thank you ! & Thank you SF.org members.
alternator cover with the 2.5L STI tag, is that an FSTi JDM part? Where did you get it?
I am not too happy about your "single" catch-can, it's a no no "t'ing" the crankcase and heads breather line into a single can, there is room for duals cans ;-)...c'mon !
sounds beasty!So Keith from AWDTUNING is in town this weekend, I have decided that I just have no desire to do the tuning right now, so I have handed control over to his capable hands.
We began working on the tune last night, and for now, we were going to run just a reflash, and have hit a wall with the MAF. What is that you say?
I am maxing, the 3" blow through MAF, at FOURTEEN AND A HALF PSI. So at some point this weekend we are putting the UTEC back in, switching over to speed density based fueling, and will up the boost a little bit more. At 14.5PSI, its stupid fast. Stage 2 STI? Bye bye :lol: I dont think I will be going past @17 maybe 18.5PSI on this transmission though. When you do the math on how much airflow it takes to peg a 3" MAF, its a lot of power, somewhere in the 340-350whp range. AT 14.5PSI!
Pics being added up top, go check the top of the thread out...
seriously considering an etune from Keith to tune my stage 4 set-up :^)
I've heard this time and time again for the 35r. It seems like it's the better choice on the 2.5 than the 30r.Do not mistake that for having poor low end power.
i have a brand new Sard adj. FPR if you decide to go that route. PM me.I can run a rising rate pressure regulator and push the 850s more into the low 900s, and get another PSI or two out of it.
