For every one 400+whp 06-07WRX out there, there are two dozen <300whp guys blowing their transmissions.There are a lot of 400+whp 06-07 WRXs not breaking gearboxes. Its all in the driver at that point, and with our 4.44 final drive, we can handle it all the more.
The 30R is a great choice, but 90% of people that do a 30R, end up buying a 35R within a couple months anyway. And a lot of people go from a 20G to a 30R, and the jump is just not that great. I mean it IS a good bit more power, its a wider powerband too, but its not as much as you would expect.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.
i have a brand new Sard adj. FPR if you decide to go that route. PM me.
Later down the lineSo, are you not going to be running alch injection on this setup? or is that later down the line.
For now. People are pushing well beyond 400whp on the 06-07 5MT in their WRX, which has a worse final drive, therefor less power handling. But you have to shift, then lay into the power, dont slam things and you are usually fine.dave are you still on stock 5 speed?
I already am on 850s.Dave, we're in the same boat, I need at LEAST a 1000cc injector for my STI, but I'm thinking about going with the 1600 just in case. I know I sent you a link to the 850's but if they dont work for you, they definitely wont work for me.
I have heard injectors past like 1100 are tough to get to idle smoothly.are their any duel injector fuel rails for the ej2x?
1600 seems a bit much for most DDs
But for everyone 2 dozen people breaking their tranny with <300whp, there are 23 that dont know how to shift, and are lieing to themselves/us about how they drive.For every one 400+whp 06-07WRX out there, there are two dozen <300whp guys blowing their transmissions.
I continually find out new things about stock gears that make me laugh. The fact that, from an engineering standpoint, the material is the steel equivalent of butter, makes me chuckle.
sell off some children or organs and get yourself one:biggrin: it my favorite part about my car and gives a great sense of safety when you are beating on itThe 6MT is planned for next spring. Hopefully that long out anyway :lol: Unless something happens and I can afford to have you guys build me a PPG box...
It is the right specification.good god. you're going to go deaf.
I wonder how you're able to build a custom box like that and get the right sound out of it. I always thought you had to build a box to certain specifications in order for the speakers to work properly.
Did you build the box? If so nice work! It looks just like the box I had for 3 Soundstream Reference 10s in my 98 Forester. 142db of skull crushing bass!!It is the right specification.
Separate chambers, 1.0cu/ft each.
Three subs are sooo the way to go! In my last vehicle I had 3 15 inch JL Audio w6 subwoofers in a sealed enclosure! :discomonkey:
To give the alternator a brake I always used a hefty OPTIMA battery with properly sized volt capacitors. That's the only way to go. And if you really want to charge up the system go for a beefier alternator.It really is. The impact is just SO much better with the extra cone surface area than it was on 1 or even 2. Its not so much a volume thing, as an impact with less effort thing.
Now if only I can get the damed alternator whine straightened out
