hi,
i have an '11 GSR and my goal is anywhere from 320-350whp and 320-350wtq
reliability is huge because i live about 5 hours from the closest mitsu dealer and id also like the keep my warranty so if the car looks similar to stock my life will be easier. heres a list of mods id like and let me know if im dreaming or not...

- works panel filter
- ETS tbe (dealer said that was fine)
- ETS UICP
- Cobb turbo inlet hose
- Cobb AP so i can return to stock tune
- custom dyno tune from AMS assuming my afr is normal after those parts being installed and i can go a few weeks before my trip to chicago

i'd also like to know if i should really look into a boost controller (mbc or ebc)or just use ecu controlled boost pressure, im open to suggestions. i realize ams uses a mustang dyno but lets pretend ill be on a dynojet.


thanks.

First off, your warranty is all ready gone lol

Second off yes get a boost controller..ask AMS would they recommend a EBC or MBC.... personally I say EBC but I am not a tuner

Third off did i mention your warranty is gone?

LOL well then i guess i should just do w/e i want anywway... but do u think i could acheive those results? i dont have a tuner right now. i am probably going with either AMS or English Racing for a dyno tune. i have also done a lot of researching about engine knock with cobb ots maps or poor customs maps...so going to a good tuner should i be expecting no knock at all anywhere within the rpm range or throttle position? i am more than willing to pay for quality.

You can just do an E-tune as well. It will be tuned for your location instead of Chicago. You should be pushing that power with those mods no problem.

Also, what kind of fuel?

ya sorry octane shouldve been mentioned, i run husky/mohawk 94 but only ONE station has it in the entire city so shell or petro canada (sunoco) 91 may be used some times.

AMS is a very very good choice... i was joking you can get warrantied on some stuff, just dont expect something like an engine getting replaced as im sure you all ready know... you will see knock sometimes.. elevation changes and weather can affect it and i see you live in canada so it happens just shouldnt be high counts of knock... up to a few degrees like 2 is nothing to be hurt over but seeing knock counts up in the 4-5+ range is when you need to be concerned.

I don't think you need to upgrade your BCS. The stock BCS is just fine for what you are wanting.

disregard that comment about the widemouth.

you can hit 350whp with stock downpipe, and I am sure the stock airbox can do it, but dont try it the Cobb inlet hose you have planned will be fine

Dont try getting 350whp on stock airbox you mind as well upgrade it

GET the cobb turbo inlet hose that will work for your power goal

Platinum Mitsubishi is great about warranty with modded Evos, highly recommended. AMS is top notch and I would like to go there one day as well. However Cobb Tuning Surgeline in Portland, Oregon is alot closer. I made it there in one day. Fantastic shop that treated me like gold. They also did a service for less than a case of beer. Was retarded.

i might have platinum install my tbe but they wont put gaguges on my a-pillar because of the airbag so i think vex performance will be doing some work. have u heard anything about them? i im probably gonna have them dyno tune my car as well. they are the only AMS Alpha 12 GTR shop around so they must be good. then i pass through chicago this spring when i take a road trip to windsor ON so i might stop by.

its highly recommended not to put gauges on on your pillar.. unless you want to get hit with them when your airbags deploy. there are many more stealthy setups if you search the forums. ie. your dash or that area where your cig lighter is.

thanks on2it great read and krumsz i have seen the dual 60mm gauge pod for under the climate control nobs, much cleaner. i was sticking with the a-pillar because i though the only other open was the steering wheel mount and id drive off a cliff if i had those gauges covering my OE ones....how can anyone stand that??

Platinum did a perfect job installing my gauges. Plus it's done by a licensed Mitsu tech. I think Vex is just ok. I got a bit of attitude in there as they are very pro Subaru, comments such as, "why didn't you buy the good rally car?" etc. I did end up buying a couple of parts there, but would never let them touch my car.

I love the Perrin Mickey Mouse ears steering column mount. I can stand it just fine. It is quite stealthy, super clean, and in a good line of sight. I get compliments often. It does not block your OEM gauges, that is an exaggeration. It blocks below 50km/hr and parts of the tach where the needle never is anyway. All depending on how you adjust your steering wheel and how you adjust the swivel mounts of course.

i also noticed vex was very subaru oriented and that comment "why didnt you buy a good rally car?" is very unprofessional so i guess i wouldnt put it above them to withhold potential and quality from a tune. i decided tho. i ordered underdash gauge pod, aem uego wideband i might just go with a prosport boost gauge. ive been talking with mike at platinum and he has been responding quickly and very helpful/thorough. they will be installing my tbe and gauges this january or feb. do you know wut they charge per hour for labour? it was mentioned that the fact im going with a long downpipe might add a significant cost which got me thinking, im not planning on upgrading the turbo any time within atleast the next few years so i might just go test pipe and cat back. ive had a lot of ppl say to me the oe downpipe is fine for our turbo a bigger one will only inscrease spool time a bit and without a tune (i wont have one for a few months) can cause boost spikes.

- works panel filter - The Best Option!!!
- ETS tbe (dealer said that was fine) - If you are getting a TBE then do it now!!! Michael will give you the best price. You will save on the whole system. You do not have to put in the DP until you get a bigger turbo so just hold on to it or just get an ETS Intercooler and enjoy a cool charge.
- ETS UICP - Very nice part.

With the parts you listed it is absolutely possible to get those numbers.
