That a Perrin DP or what?  Seems like it is for the later gens like the 2.5's or newer?  A TD04 on an EA82 should be VERY interesting to say the least.

no markings, not sure. probly a generic Ebay DP. 3" made for a WRX I believe. once the engine is bolted in I need to measure it out and shorten it for the EA chassis.

 

And Justin, a job eh? that's pretty exciting news

It's been done a few times. Usually doesn't last long, but it'd be cool if it did!

BAH!

 

I disagree. PLUS my TechWorks header is designed for one so no mod, no fuss!

 

 

ALSO: EVO 8 injectors should keep PLENTY of fuel to offset the more air

funny, i can see the pic you posted on my Iphone but not my laptop. ah, oh well. I remember that day. good stuff. always great to meet another subaru enthusiast!

also i did some researching and an Orlando import generally carries EJ20g for right around a grand. thats pretty cheap for a full engine/trans set up

however I really want to carry on Will's passion of pushing the EA82

Got around to modifying the turbo, however my pliers don't have enough a$$ to get the clip back in. Ill just take it down to Subaru on Monday and ask real nice someone to do it for me. I have plenty of other things to do between now and then

Slight update:

 

Picked up some WRX wheels so later down the line I can fit WRX brakes and better tire options. Stuffed them under the xt6 only to find out my bushings are GONE so the one ran into the strut, put the smaller wheels back on and am waiting on poly bushings

 

Needed a helicoil kit for one of the exhuast studs. Cheapest place: amazon, so I'm waiting on that

Also ordered the 90 degree elbow for the turbo inlet.

 

So all in all I'm just sitting here waiting on parts

And I'm broke.

selling the sti exhuast to my buddy to use on his GC, just too much of a PITA to modify.

 

looking at getting some 2.5" pipe and running it from there, anybody got a pic of they're exhuast running underneath the rear axle rather than over?
