255lph Walbro fuel pump
Methanol injection - sprays in right behind throttle on top of intake manifold (needs a little plastic tube since this one broke). Pump is located in trunk. Pump activates at 10psi and it is adjustable from under the dashboard where the boost gauge connects with a T splitter. I have 8 gallons of boost juice water methanol mix to go with it.

HKS catless uppipe, ported, thermal coated and port-matched with headers
Nvidia catless 3" downpipe with bell housing w/ QTP electronic exhaust cutout at the bottom. Control to open exhaust is by the center arm rest and lights up green/red when opening/closing. (Motor for actuator at the bottom of the car needs repair (about $40 replacement from QTP). Cutout is still usable by removing the blocking plate which is 3 bolts.

Last time the car was on a dyno it put out 293whp and 285wtq and that was without the methanol injection and with the exhaust cutout closed. Those of you who don't know what whp is, that's basically 400hp that manufacturers would advertise that their engine puts out, subtracted by the power eaten by all the moving components of the drivetrain like the transmission, differentials, driveshaft and axles. All wheel drive cars use up nearly 25% power from the engine, but oh it's so worth it in the winter time. Most fun you'll ever have with incredible snow tires.
This WRX was my passion and work of many years of love and joy in putting it together to be an absolute driving monster. I love this car so much, no one would understand unless you've spent 11 years babying a vehicle while having so much fun with it. I bought the car bone stock in 2005 from a dealership (certified pre-owned) which they said an elderly man had previously owned the vehicle. Since then I nearly doubled it's power and did everything I could to make it better in all the different ways I could think of. I did hours of research before buying every modification, and I installed it all myself (other than the transmission) and made sure to properly torque every bolt. At some point the car got too powerful for the OEM 2002 WRX transmission and broke that infamous glass 2nd gear. I replaced it with a slightly beefier 2004 WRX transmission. Unfortunately that didn't last too long either and broke the shift fork somehow during a frigid winter day and lost 2nd gear again (the knob just won't stay down in 2nd gear). Instead of fussing with WRX transmissions I went with a 2004 STi transmission and the whole set which goes with it down to the wheel hubs since it was all a direct fit with the 2002 WRX engine. That costed me a whopping 6k but it was so worth it. The WRX transmission weights around 40lbs and the STi transmission weighs around 120. Yeah it's easy to say it's way damn stronger with beefy gears. The car was great for years to come. Recently something happened with one of the heads of the engine and one of the exhaust ports don't fully close at low RPM (less than 2k) but seals up and makes great power when you get on the gas. The handling of the car is absolutely incredible. I got a 2017 STI, and it's easy to say my WRX is definitely faster and handles way better. The new STI is smoother for sure but it's not what I made my WRX to be. Unfortunately I leased the STI so I can't mod it to begin a new legend but I'll own my next STI and create another monster when money allows. I just got married and expect kids to come in the next year so money is tight with expenses. I intended on replacing the engine altogether with another legend I'm going to bring into the picture... The EJ22T fully closed deck block. Yes I have one in my garage and was working on stripping it down to the block and rebuilding it with new rods/pistons/crankshaft but since I got married, well, no more free time haha. But I'd be more than happy to see someone finish what I started with putting in the EJ22T along with a much bigger turbo which that block would be able to hold. Some say it would hold 900whp all day. If someone was to buy the car, I'd like to stay in touch with how things are going with it, especially if you were to put in the EJ22T. I'd be more than happy to give advice if you need it as I've built the car myself and know so much about it and how it would respond to certain things.
