    hey Luke, why don't you share your full mods with us?? BTW, who tuned your car?? and how much power does 20g make??

    Yeah fill us in, because a 20g shouldnt make enough power to just break your motor. Sounds like you had some other issue to me.

    Before, i was running the20g9 with meth at 28-30psi never got to run it before i blew.. never got it dynoed either, had it street tuned by scott at TTP in orlando (small dsm guy). It wasnt the tune that happened it was the loose belt. Full mods are just (now) AMS 2.3L forged stroker, ported polished head, 3 angle valve job, titanium springs lifters and retainters w/ams valves. HKS 272 cams, Buschur 20g9(6 blade), 3'' tbe, 720cc injectors, AEM EMS, Greddy FMIC w/injen hard pipes, ACT 2900 street disc with prostreet flywheel, walbro 255, forge rs bov and a few other things but im inn a hurry to catch a flight.

    With the new setup on pump I should be high 300's low 400's (about where I was on meth before) and on c16 (im ditching the meth) should be capable of high 10's (theres a guy running 11.3 on 22 psi c16 ~30).

    Nice setup but I don't like buschur's stuff. Been a DSM'er for a long time and Bushur's stuff was mediocre but it's your car and sounds like it'll be a beast.

    its not actually a "buscher" turbo, its another company that takes the 20g wheel and puts it in an evo9 16g housing. than buschur renames it their own.

    Seems like a 20G should make better numbers than that . . . they do on STIs at least.

    i thought the 20g on an STi would make ~370 on pump

    370's would be high 300's no? like I said high 3's low 4's on pump.
