I just finished doing a fair amount of work on my car;

The old fuel pump was gross...
Image

So I added a Walbro 255 lph Fuel pump
Image
Image

I added an epic, Custom Fabbed 3" Downpipe, for maximum growlerness:
Image
It sounds way dirty now, and i love it.

I re-worked the air system pretty extensively because i was unable to maintain boost. Weirdness, but i just fixed it all today and now i'm all kinds of stoked.
Image
Image

I re-did the PCV system by making a T for everything to flow through all healthy like:
Image
I cleaned up all my previously ghetto intake system, pink Zipties FTW!:
Image

And I Added some (more) awesome, which adds like 50WHP:
Image

Now the growler soob eats babies much more efficiently.

Next up:
KYB-AGX's plus some springs or something bouncy
Bigger Injection
That ecu that is better than the one i have
A bigger boost maker

I forgot to mention that i ordered a silicone Y pipe for my TMIC, and it fits up perfect.

Image

doesn't look like this anymore, but this just shows how well it fits without having to ghetto-fab anything.

so next up needs to be a tune from somewhere.
The car has an AEM unit and if anyone knows of anywhere in MT, ID, WA that will be able to help me put a decent tune on the car for a decent price give me a heads up.

Brydon + brando put a good basemap on it but it needs to be legit.

Any leads welcome, thanks :)

You lucky dog, I think everyone and their mother wanted that car. I was beginning to think no one was going to buy it for some crazy reason. He really came down on the price over the months it was for sale.

Its all in Washington.

Just save some cash up for awhile... From the sounds of it (and the way the car drove and how your AFRs were) I'd say your safe on the base tune for quite awhile...

The only three people I would really trust to tune my car would be Dave, Sean Sexton at Rallitek, and Tim at Surgeline...

Dave and Sean dont tune AEMs... So just go with Tim at Surgeline.

Its gonna cost a small fortune ($300 /hour i believe)... but your car will all be the better.

how long do you think awhile is? since you did drive it. :)

what about forged performance? i called Rallitek up and they said they wouldn't do it and i should go to forged performance.

also does anyone in WA have tuning specials for WCSS or subiefest?

Awhile as in you could drive it for a very long time without any foreseable problems...

I forgot about Forged Performance... I know they do some pretty good work though (walked through their shop one time, 7-800 hp hondas, dozens of RX-7s, 1000hp Supra). I bet they could do it, I believe they do AEM.

Forged Performance tuned my car (SMT6) and I know they do AEMs. All the guys over there are really nice and do great work. They also did the custom fabbing of my intake, oil catch-can and coolant reservoir/overflow. Highly recommended.

Stressful as hell but it ended up damn good i think. 20% all around basically.
I also blacked out a lot of the chrome-ness and the old gray faded side panels and window tidbits, as you may have notices. i think it makes the car stand out more and i like the way it turned out.

Also im going to portland to have Surgeline do the car on Friday.
It's gunna be so SWEEEEEET!!

Putting the Walbro 255 in the Stealth tonight, from the TW.

Should be much better on the DYNO tomorrow at surgeline.

I'll post pics/vids from my adventure cuz its gunna be SO SIIIICK AAAH!!

18 pounds with a better fuel pump is going to be a dramatic improvement over 14ish with the Sti Fuel Pump.

9hr drive, but its going to be totally worth it. :smt040
