You should already have a "very" nice Prodrive "sports cat" downpipe on your STi.

Anti-lag will vastly increased temprature of the exhaust and turbo. Exccess heat often degrades the turbo's oil seals much faster than a normal car, with today's technology such as ceramic turbo vanes, better welding techniques and high quality componenets, turbos' can last much longer.[/FONT][/COLOR]

Re: 03 sti ppp decat

you will need a appropriate ecu.

Simtek is very good for the money. About 1250 fitted & mapped with anti-lag.
