Default 19T Upgrade Stage 6

Hi guys,

I want to upgrade to Stage 6. Being that it's the highest I can go without new pistons, rods and an auto gearbox.

Ideally I'd like to just buy everything from the one place. Like Maptun or Brew City. But unfortunately I live in the **** end of the world, and shipping intercooler etc cost a small fortune. I've tried to shop locally, but I'd like to make sure I'm buying the correct parts.

Injectors:

I'm not sure if I need to upgrade the fuel pump. If I do which one do I need?:

Downpipe:
Already have a 3" KRONA

Air Intake:
Already have K&N panel filter

Intercooler:

Turbo:

Anything I've forgotten?

I thought the exhaust flange on the 9-5 2.3T motor was different than the 9-3ss 2.8T? Are you going to run some sort of adapter for that turbo?

I'm an idiot. Lucky I didn't buy it.

How about this one https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kinugawa...X2pA:rk:6:pf:0

or this https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Kinugawa....c100005.m1851

One of those isn't remotely close. Stock is a 3 bolt flange on the 2.0T motor

That's a good thread to read as well.

Ok, going with the first choice.

Well; I've installed the 19T, DO88 Intercooler and 630cc injectors. Very disappointed. I won't be needing a LSD.

I only seem to be getting 13psi boost. I was getting 16psi with the stage 3 tune.

Who tuned it? Also, a bigger turbo won't need as much boost to make the same power as a smaller turbo.

Brew City.

Does it need time to adapt?

No. Have they responded as to why it is only 13psi? Also, why BCB and not someone with more experience like Maptun?

Haven't contacted BCB yet. Thought it might need time to adapt, or wastegate needs to be adjusted?. Thought I might have done something wrong?. I have a OBDII thingy. Can I measure the airflow to make sure it's getting enough boost?

You can compare MAF values vs stock at WOT. More airflow=more power.
