I called everywhere and they are all out. It's on Back order till mid to end of January according to most. But full race said they don't know when they will have them back in stock.

My entire setup will be for sale in the next week or so, which features an efr 6258. It's amazing, only selling because I want to upgrade to an nb.

As far as dyno plots go, I would search google to find plots on other forums. Perrin did a bunch of dyno tests on an Sti comparing efr to a smaller Garrett gtx I think. There aren't any dyno plots of an efr on this site that I know of though.

Speaking generally here but i don't see how you guys do this. By the time people get their setup running id say half if not more part out or sell the car.

I know :( but the only way I will have enough money to buy a new car is to sell the turbo setup. Also, I am a ***** and I want a/c, and my low mount manifold won't work with a/c. Believe me, if I could keep this setup, and still have enough money to buy a nice nb and swap everything over, I would do it in a heartbeat. Also, I have to say I love building these setups.

I thought that I wanted a car that balanced street and track, but I'm transferring to a real school next year (hopefully berkeley) and I really want to have a solid street car that has ac, power windows and cruise control. I'm thinking I'll sell the turbo kit and all the nice parts off of the NA, but keep the car and my next two projects will be the NB turbo setup then a sweet cage for the NA, we will see.

I've done it three times now, my first setup was garbage, second setup was pretty nice but had some room for improvement, and this setup is absolutely perfect. Now it's just in a car that doesn't fulfill everything I want in my dd.


I already got some interest in the setup, so keep your eyes out for a new build thread once I get an NB, the next setup is going to be sick. Twin Scroll 7064? I have to talk to raffi, but I think it might be the perfect street turbo paired with a TS built motor. Summer 2012 will be fun.
