Default 2004 wrx

Hello Et All,

I have decided to purchase a stock 2004 WRX, one owner last 10 years with 160K on the clock and FSH. Timing belt was changed at 116K. Body work needs a tidy, which I'm more than happy to do knowing I have a straight engine to now work on.

I'm looking to get around 210kw with the following mods:
VF34 Turbo
565cc Injectors
Walbro 255 fuel pump
3 inch turboback exhaust
Process West top mount intercooler
and possibly a process west cold air intake - maximum motor advised against this.
I will add a GFB BOV.

Could you guys advise firstly if 200-210KW is realistic and who to use in Perth, being from Bunbury.

Secondly, have I missed out other important items for preventative reasons, like Grimmspeed air-oil separator.

I've been advised $1650 for a tune with ECU licence. I'm looking for feed back good or bad.

Thanks heaps guys.

Welcome to the wrx community mate, your mods list will definitely sharpen the car up significantly and also provide the much loved boxer-rumble.
The best advice I can give is to forget about a target power figure. You might end up with a high-power car that drives like crap because the power only comes on late in the rev range. It is much better to have a tune that has a greater area under the curve, more-so than just focussing on the final figure.
Choose your tuner before choosing your mods and then discuss with them what you want the car to achieve, then trust their advice on what you will need to meet them.
Plenty of threads on here re Perth tuners so have a search.
All the best!
Tom

180 to 190 kw at the wheels seems to be the magic number for EJ20 with VF turbos and 98RON fuel....

By the time you spend that $ you would be better getting a STI.

100% better car with 200 kw factory

Fair comment Neil, but an unmodded STI won't give 200 KW ATW.
But it looks as though he's already made up his mind.

Forget the BOV...factory is best. Also maybe try and source a second hand STI TMIC which may be a cheaper option. CAI is OK but will just improve throttle response.
You will struggle to get over 200 KW ATW....190 is a more realistic figure.
BTW I have a set of 1000cc top feed injectors for sale @ $400.
As Neil said above, and if you haven't purchased the car yet, the STI is a much better option.

Good luck.............
