Engine Mods

HI can anyone advise please?.
First of al my car 2005 wrx prodrive 261.
Mods so far LPG conversion done 12 months ago, decat downpipe fitted.
Mods to be fitted . Equil length manifold 4 into 2 with 2 into 1 uppipe,
also air induction kit.
My Question is If i fit the manifold will the engine still run ok ?.
I have had the induction fitted but had the mil light on weak mixture so put airbox back on till I get a remap.
Ps . can anyone tell me how far can I go Horse power wise without putting the
engne at risk. Cheers Bob.

Re: Engine Mods

i wouldn;t bother with the headers if your getting warnings with the ind kit alone, hjang fire till you can get it mapped to suit.

tops for the engine is a long way off, you'll need to change turbo, injectors, decat etc etc before your gonna be risking the engine (as long as you look after it well, regular oil changes, regular servicing and making sure any faults are sorted sharpish)
