    Krug's STupid Build

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I'm looking for any constructive input for what I have planned for my 2018 FiST over the next two to three years! My goal is 300-320hp/300ftlb at the wheels on 93oct (no ethanol blends or WMI if possible) with a very solid base to support it.

    KEY:
    PLANNED
    OPTIONAL
    PURCHASED
    COMPLETED


    "Groundwork":
    Shift Kit Boomba Ultimate Shift Package
    Oil Catch Can Damond Motorsports PCV OCC
    Limited Slip Differential MFactory Helical
    LSD Install Kit Ford Performance
    Rear Motor Mount cp-e xFlex
    Passenger Side Motor Mount cp-e xFlex
    Driver Side Motor Mount cp-e xFlex
    Symposer Delete Whoosh

    Cooling:
    Radiator Mountune Triple-pass
    Radiator Hoses Whoosh
    Thermostat Ford 180F
    Oil Cooler FSWerks

    Brakes:
    F/R Brake Lines StopTech Braided Steel
    F/R Pads EBC RedStuff
    F/R Rotors StopTech Slotted

    Suspension:
    Front Upper Brace Pierce
    Front Lower Brace Pierce 2-Point
    Midship Brace Pierce
    Rear Torsion Brace Pierce
    Trunk Brace Pierce
    F/R Antisway Bars Eibach

    "Stage 3:"
    Tuner Cobb AP (w/ Stratified Tune)
    Intake cp-e αIntake
    FMIC Whoosh FMIC (Black)
    Noodle Pipe Whoosh
    Downpipe Whoosh 3" Catless
    Downpipe Stud Kit ARP

    Turbo Swap:
    Custom Tune Stratified
    Turbo RT330 (Includes charge pipes)
    BOV Turbosmart Kompact Plumb Back
    Wastegate Turbosmart IWG-75 11psi
    Header Ported Stock
    Spark Plugs NGK 6510
    Turbo Blanket Thermal Zero
    Auxiliary Fuel Stratified (or Peron) 4-port

    Cosmetic/Other:
    Floor Mats OEM ST Rubber Mats
    Cargo Mat OEM ST Rubber Mat

    (full fascia, hood, fenders, A-pillars)
    (Partial mirrors & roof)
    Mud Flaps Rally Armor (Black w/ Red Logo)
    Pedal Spacer Garageline


    Again, my goal is to aim for 300-320 horsepower and 300ftlb torque at the wheels. I plan to make this as solid and trackable as I can, without sacrificing too much low-end or requiring forged internals (so no 350whp+ for me) while still being capable of being a reliable daily that I can simply fill up with 93oct at the pump.

    All suggestions and advice appreciated!

    Hps 5.0 pads suck imo compared to the stock performance pads.

    I despise the dust that the OEM pads produce. Do you have an alternative? EBC, perhaps?

    Brakes are low on my list, honestly - the OEM ones perform perfectly fine for now, I only plan to replace them when needed.

    I haven’t found a good replacement yet. I feel that most pads are a downgrade over stock and when making more power I’ll take dust over clean wheels and worse performing pads.

    EBC Redstuff has been a very popular alternative to the Hawk HPS 5.0 that most suggest and use instead of OEM.

    If you decide to go with the RT330 revo turbo kit you will not need the Mishimoto charge pipes since the kit is complete with charge pipes
    You'll also easily max out the stock fuel system with the RT330 on 93 octane.
    The stock exhaust manifold will flow more than enough for the power level you are aiming for. If you do decide to grab an extra manifold to port match, not a huge power bump but it's piece of mind for sure making sure there are no flow obstructions

    Fair enough. I will keep it in mind.

    Excellent, I will consider them!

    Well, I need a cheap alternative for the interim, as I plan to do this in stages, and am not keen on keeping the stock charge pipes. The turbo upgrade comes last, and my main goals for it are stock-like fitment, stock-ish spool, and of course higher power.

    I figured, which is why I am considering an aux system. My main question is whether or not 93 is sufficient for my goals (fuel starvation being the primary limitation), or if ethanol blends or WMI are suggested (octane being the primary limitation).

If you do decide to grab an extra manifold to port match, I personally like doing that whenever possible when building my own projects because I know how off the OEM manifold castings are compared to the head in most cases. Not a huge power bump but it's piece of mind for sure making sure there are no flow obstructions
    Matches what I have read. I have the tools and time and steady hand to dedicate a weekend for porting my manifold. IIRC, a replacement OEM manifold is not terribly expensive, so no biggie if I screw up.

    we will have the Peron 4 port AUX fuel kits here next week just to offer another option

    Thanks! I've found that laying everything out and visualizing has always paid back in dividends, even when things go sideways.

    Interesting! Can you clue me in as the the cost and comparison to Stratified's 4-port aux? Different controller, perhaps a superior design or spray pattern?

    Ron got me thinking - thanks Ron! - since I am leaning toward the RT330 turbo kit which includes charge pipes, in order save myself a few bucks and cut down on waste, would it be more viable for me to forgo the Mishimoto charge pipe kit and instead get the Whoosh noodlepipe and symposer delete?

    For clarification, I plan to do a "stage 3" install first, and then a turbo upgrade later. Would replacing the resonated noodle pipe and deleting the symposer while keeping the rest of the stock charge pipe components be an issue? I can't think of a major reason why it would.
