Well bit the bullet today and bought a Turbo Dynamics MDX 555-450 billet turbo. Ninja Ninja Same turbo I had on the Terminator 1998 V5 JDM WRX STI Type R - Page 5 1059682899 1998 V5 JDM WRX STI Type R - Page 5 1059682899

So new 740cc Power Enterprise injectors & new turbo getting fitted and remap by Bob Rawle next Wednesday. Getting the power wound back to around 400bhp as I am restricted by the MAF & ECU to that (not to mention the gearbox lol).

Next stop 6 speed, ECU & FMIC then max the tits out of it Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

No mate - Just going to go for a straight 6 speed newage without DCCD - trying to cut down on the spend as I've just laid out £1300 for the 5 new Revolutions with new tyres & £1620 for a new turbo..... Ninja Ninja

Cheers Keffer that is very kind of you mate - just let me know the price you are looking for it when the time comes -I'll need Box, diff, prop, cradle & gear linkage - that's all.

Cheers mate Lucky!

Not really put an update on here in a while...but that's not to say I haven't been doing stuff  Ninja  Ninja

Went for my mapping session on 25th Feb with the new turbo & injectors fitted.....but never even made it out of the garage FFS!!! During the ECU write the connectivity to ECU failed due to a dodgy wire and became a brick. The ECU was unrecoverable so the car was pushed outside into a parking space.  No Pity

So I had to buy a new Alcatek ECU with ALS & Launch enabled and had the car transported to DLM in Darlington where Bob Rawle was mapping the following week on 5th March. The blessing with that was the MAF was no longer a limiting factor and he could just go for gold on the power.  Twisted Evil  

Well mapping started off all guns blazing with car running perfectly.....that is until we did the power runs to get the numbers. Acceleration was brutal until the car hit 1.5 bar of boost and the boost dropped to 0.8bar and it was losing power. Did 3 runs and the same issue. Pulled car over and checked it and it was the turbo inlet hose which was collapsing and getting sucked flat.  Brickwall  

Good news is Bob said that my engine is as sweet as a nut and that the car picks up extremely quickly. He said other cars may have more power, but they won't be nearly as quick - which was at least some consolation!

So another shopping list has been ordered from the Dr Kindon  Ninja  Ninja

Lateral Performance wire reinforced turbo inlet hose
Oil catch tank (as the Lateral hose has no oil breather ports)
K&N big daddy cone air filter to replace the standard air box & panel filter
Carl Davey air diversion duct to replace the oem classic undertray and give max performance to the Hawkeye STI TMIC

Remap booked soon and with that little lot Bob said it should easily see 440-450....fingers crossed!!!

fookin hell mate you're almost as lucky as I am. The run up to mapping was anything but plain sailing and then when mapping the turbo that was too small for the 2.0 Engine was too big for the 2.5 so had to hold back. Still fooking rapid but not where I want it, so new turbo coming soon I hope.

Glad you're kinda sorted though, how you running it now then?

Well not much sleep will be had tonight as I have the pre-map jitters! ROFL

All the parts have been fitted for tomorrow by the Master himself Dr Kindon and at 11.00am I am hoping for some nice 400+ bhp figures from the Type R.

Lateral Performance wire reinforced silicone turbo intake hose is fecking solid so no danger of any collapse there (Should be for the price of the bloody thing! £222  affraid ). To make it double sure Dr Kindon has also put a big alloy insert into the silicone air filter hose.
