    how much power r u making with the current setup?
  13. jonnyboy0150

    Scott estimates that its making only about 260hp but about 370lb/ft @ around 2700rpm. Keep in mind this is still the factory TD04 turbo. It makes 17psi of boost at about 2500rpm.

    that sounds about right... numbers should be similar to an 06 WRX with a similar setup... with everything except meth, ive seen them make ~340wtq and ~240whp

    Well, its not the easiest as far as work involved. But it is a bolt up swap, so theres no crazy modification needed to put it in. I got some help from Arnold on this forum, he works with me at Atlanta Classic Cars. So we had lifts and all the tools needed, and he had done a couple before, so that made it easier.

    Overall, it took about 12 hours. But there was two of us, so technically 24 man-hours. Had to wait 3 weeks for my clutch due to some serious misunderstandings. But i love the swap, the torque is really fun for city driving. And the shortblock can handle alot more power and alot more boost.

    Anything else your curious about?? Let me know if i can help you with anything.
  18. Thanks. I'm just curious for now. a 2.5 is a long way off for me, but its in my sights for later.
    I'm sure it will be a year before I get to that point.
