    Re: Reverend's Hyper Blue WRX STI

    My car has been on some sort of "Stage 2" setup for 3 years now. I knew my next step was going to be FlexFuel, but it took me awhile to get to the point where I knew how I wanted to do it and what other mods to do that would be easiest whilst doing FlexFuel anyways. The floodgates opened up with possibilities but I still ended up going fairly conservative. I'm in no rush to end the life of the EJ257 under the hood, so reliability while still increasing performance was my main goal.




    The end result has 357whp and 384wtq on E85. Figures are about 50 points lower on 91 Octane, so I'm very happy with the gains from adding some corn juice to the diet. At the heart of these gains is the COBB FlexFuel kit along with ID1050X Injectors, DW300c Fuel Pump, and some other bits we tweaked. The TGVs and Secondary Air Pump have also been deleted, too. To ensure proper cooling, we added a coolant line to Cylinder #4 and then buttoned it all up for some tuning. I drove from Omaha to Des Moines to meet with Graham (Boosted Performance Tuning) and he was great to work with as always. We backed off a bit on the torque figures since I'm still on a stock clutch for now. He said this Dyno reads a little light on Torque and that I'm probably making closer to the low 400s to the wheels for that. I can certainly feel it!

    This bump in power is even more fun with the grippy tires I picked up earlier this summer. 2020 Plans are really starting to compliment eachother now and just in time for the 5-Year Anniversary. Got a few more touches to finish up and I should have a video of this build in October to cap it all off.

    Still stock turbo?

    Not too bad.

    Yup! Stock turbo. Stock clutch (while it lasts!). Stock block. I've been pretty cautious with stuff knowing the weak points of the EJ257. AOS helps keep oil where it's supposed to be. Coolant is more evenly distributed through the block with the additional line we added to the 4th Cyinder. I'd like to do Head Studs at some point and I'll need to upgrade the clutch soon, too.

    Does the air duct/tray that mounts to the TMIC from your picture have a specific name? Is it a legit aftermarket piece you can buy, or did you fabricate it yourself? If aftermarket, are they available for the GD chassis? I've never personally seen that before. Have you tested if it helps in any way, shape, or form?

    I wish someone else made these intercooler shrouds! But I got together with a friend who can weld and fabricate stuff like this. We worked together a few years ago to make this specifically for my car and my hood, so unless your 2004 STI and the hood you're running has the same dimensions as this (which I would bet it doesn't) I don't think it would fit.

    Still, I get enough questions about that shroud that I've resumed work on making adjustments to my initial design so we can produce more of these. I know there are plenty of STI owners who have this kind of hood that could use this.

    This is great to see! I love custom modifications that are functional. We went on slightly different paths, however, the results should be similar:
