WRX turbo

Hey guys, i am picking up a 2005 WRX turbo with in the next couple days and i was wondering if anyone has ever ran one on a fofo? I'm sure its kinda odd to do it but i think it will work. Its a tiny little thing but im not looking for massive horspower out of it. All i need is a manifold and down pipe. Any thoughts on this would be much appreciated. Even if its not doable i am still buying it its almost brand new and the guys wants $50 for it hahahaha.

Andrew

BTW its a close friend of mine so im not getting screwed outta money.

Nothing wrong with using one at all. You just have to fab up a Manifold and downpipe. It maybe small, but anyone who has driven one of those cars knows how fast it spools. GL

That should be a great turbo if you're up for some custom fabrication.

Sound good to me, i figured it would spool fast. I just gotta figure out where to get the fabbing done at....Where can i get one of the oil filter screw on "things" that has a spacer type deal with an oil pressure line connection? I dunno what its called but hopefully you guys get what im sayin.

I'm using an '03 WRX turbo in my setup, am just getting a flange adaptor plate made up :)

Should spool up very quickly which is what I think is needed with the SVT/ST170. Its too boggy down low (maybe it's coz I don't have a tune and everything is stock)

The WRX is a TD05 14B I do believe.

I am using the TD05 16g on my setup, but still waiting on the motor from Tom. So no feedback yet on how it works.


However, I did use a TE04H which is smaller than the WRX Turbo. It spooled at 2200 however maxed out at like 240 - 250 hp. But it was so fun to drive as a DD!

I think you will enjoy the WRX Turbo.

You should make a build thread when you get going on this project. I am curious how this comes out.
