So when I get back from deployment next month you best believe I'm throwing a lot of money into my FoST (Has less than 3,000 miles). Currently its sitting in my dads shop with a Cpe Lightweight FMIC with MBRP hot and cold side piping, Cobb High Flow CAI, Boomba BOV, Magnaflow 3" catback, and an SCT X4 with a tune from Torrie. I am still deciding on what downpipe to get but I'm for sure getting an ATP GTX2867R with the .64 housing. I'm wanting around 350whp and that's about it. It will still be my DD and I won't be running it down the track or anything (maybe race some scrubs who underestimate the ecoBEAST on the highway) but that's it. Do I really need to get WMI or Aux Fuel if i'll rarely be in the boost that hard? Sorry for the noob question I'm somewhat new to forums!

Sounds like you already threw a bunch of money at it! No idea about an answer for you but just wanted to thank you for your service! Get home safe!

On good 93 octane u should be able to get right around 350 whp. You'll be pushing the stock fuel system limits though. Tune will be very important. I'd spring for WMI but that just my opinion.

What Octane fuel do you have locally? If you have good 93 then you can get there relatively safely.

I just installed the GTX2867R with 0.64 A/R turbine housing and am getting tuned with Stratified. I am also going for around 350whp and am not running auxiliary fuel or WMI. In the future I may look into aux fuel as we have a lot of E85 around here. The turbo is amazing mate, it made a huge difference to the car, I am on about 320whp at the moment (only base revision) and it feels night and day from the stock K03.

If you decide later you want more than 350whp you will need one or the other (or both haha). The top end power the GTX produces is really addictive!

Best of luck.

Sounds like you should look into a GTX2863 or EFR6258 instead of a 2867.

Can I ask why you suggest the one over the other?
It will be because the 2863 will spool about 150rpm sooner than the 2867r and still be able to reach 350whp. Therefore a slightly better response.

If you want anything over 350whp or if you are going with WMI or aux on ethanol I would advise the 2867 as the 2863 will not reach higher than 350whp as efficiently as the 2867. If on stock fuel system then 6 of one, whether you will notice the difference in 150 or so rpm I do not know. I do know that the 2867 pulls like a mother from 3000rpm all the way to redline.
