boosting my high mileage is300

My car has 240 km on it, Im doing a leakdown and compression test tomorrow and going to see how it checks out!

I'm thinking of the XS power kit, I have an AEM v2 so ecu is taken care of,

Would someone be able to tell me exactly which subaru wrx injectors are a drop in?

Also getting a walbro 255.

Am i missing anything?

I don't think 240k km is that much... But the compression/leak down will be a better indication.

The drop in injectors are the 440 cc WRX blue top feed injectors. Just don't expect too much boost out of them without a fuel return.

I like to steer people away from XSPower kit... But you may be able to get it to work. I recommend piecing together a kit with CX components... E.g manifold, intercooler piping downpipe midpipe intercooler... It's all up to you though..

You're missing gauges, sensors ,exhaust..I'm not sure what sensors you have for your V2... But yeah... All I can think of right now.

so im leaning towards buying a used/blown GE motor, sending it to the shop to have them rebuilt with forged internals, and all the other goodies and then swapping that into my car and boosting it afterward instead of pulling my motor, anyone have any reasons why i shouldnt do this apart from the extra money?

As well I was wondering if anyone would be against using the XS power or Cxracing FMIC kit for high horsepower applications?
