Hello friends

I've recently acquired a vf 43 and a wrx catless pipe, sti bov and return hose for my pre facelift SG xt. (Currently has hi flow resonator and exhaust, reinforced turbo intake, Cold air intake)

I've got the following things left to collect before I do install and tune

Sti intercooler + Splitter
Dump pipe
Fuel pump?
boost solenoid.
+ Better brake pads :D Any suggestions?

Is there anything else I need to get?

Also is there anything I need to do for the vf43 when fitting it?

Sounds a good list.
Depending on the km you could ensure spark plugs, leads, oxygen and maf sensor are in good working order.... upper engine clean.

Going to stick to 98ron?

What tyres are you running?

plugs are fine, leads are ok. I'll make sure MAF sensor is on point prior.

Are you still on the original up-pipe? It has a cat that can fall apart and cause damage downstream (= turbo etc).

Hey bob

Yes I am, I do have a wrx catless uppipe as a replacement.

I've got the option of getting a 06 sti splitter but I hear there will be problems with my 02sti scoop.

is this true?

Fuel pump is a certain if you are going above 14-15psi. SO I suggest you remove the question mark.....
Injector limits may also start to come in - are you on the 565cc ?
