How much would it cost to get a set of injectors cleaned and flow tested?



Flow testing would be $50-$80 as for the cleaning, best to call Justin at the workshop on 9584-4499 to get a quote.

S/Steel up pipe
upgrade top munt intercooler with silicon hose kit
245l/r fuel pump
larger inlet pipe kit
Power filter kit
Reflash


We don't sell VF34's off the shelf as we do our own garrett based upgrade turbos, we have to order in the VF34's and as we don't buy in bulk our buy price is rather awful.


But a VF34 should see you up around 190-200kw atw, I'm assuming you have a 3" exhaust also in your mod list...

For VF34 pricing you will need to call Lee at the workshop on 9584-4499


Hi,

I spoke to Lee today about the Vf34 (your price isnt much higher) but after speaking to some guys and doing a litlle more research I have decided to go for the 400s, I had a look in the catologue but cant see the 400s price in there (I cant call Lee back its to late) and will the 550cc injectors still be good enough?
Thanks for all your help.

550cc injectors should be fine, RRP on the 400s is $2450 (from memory) ...

Hello,

Looking for your advice - I would like to purchase locally

I own a 2004 sti - mods done everything but the internal and turbo. Have new fuel rails etc to fit when i decide what turbo to purchase.

My mechanic is telling me the FP green 3" inlet will be the best for my application - I mainly do Track work

As he cannot obtain the turbo and I do not wait to buy overseas - which range of turbo would you recommand.

Best Regards

If you have a fmic then the AVO 400L if an upgraded tmic then the 400s.

Are there any dyno sheets available of customers cars running a 2.5L motor with a 400S or a 400L bolted up?
I'm curious when these turbo's are coming on boost and what their real world drivability is like?

I currently have a 2008 WRX with a TBE, Intake and ECU Flash. I really like the low down power it has from 2200rpm onwards and I'm wondering how much of that low down drivability I will lose if I switched to a 400S or a 400L. I realise I will have to sacrifice some bottom end for the extra top end, but how much of a trade off will it be?

I will send a dyno graph tomorrow. Sorry for the delay. I think I must have been blind as I never seen your post and it has been up for a week.
