What do we have the top feed or the side feed?
What model of wrx/sti can we use (aftermarket ofcourse) cause I didn't find to the forester specifically.
Thanks

U.S. spec cars are top feed, I don't know exactly what you have in Israel.

There are a couple aftermarket TGV risers that are made of plastic, I went with the JDM Subaru version, as TGV valves were not required in Japan. Same fitment as the WRX.

Pretty sure if it's an 08 you would have top feed injectors. What are you trying to do? I thought TGV valves were a U.S. spec thing. Just looking for new injectors? If so, do you need to upsize them to support higher power?

What I'm trying to do is tgv delete, yes we have here also these valves and if it can bring me some hp so what do I need it for.
I already made the air pump delete.

@moshe_levy don't count on a noticeable hp gain from TGV deletes. In theory it can help, but will not do anything until you remove the more substantial bottlenecks in the system. If you want to make more power the stock turbo is the number one thing that holds you back. I did not touch the TGV deletes until I needed to upgrade the injectors, which coincided with moving up to a substantially larger turbo that required them. If you are considering a bigger turbo in the future you might upgrade the injectors & TGV deletes now, but you will require a tune immediately.

Ok I see, now I'm not planning on big turbo, so I guess i'l leave it that way.
Thanks.
