Default PURE Stage 2 Prerequisites? - 01-02-2019, 04:50 PM

Well after only 79k miles my stock turbos are showing sings that they're about to sh** the bed. I'm visibly burning through a significant amount of oil (turbo seals) and I'm currently looking to upgrade to some PS2's to get rid of the stockers once and for all.

My car is currently MHD stage 2 and FBO minus a BOV and FMIC. If I pull the trigger on the PS2's, I plan on getting a VRSF 5" FMIC, 2" inlets, and outlets. I don't plan on shooting for any crazy power numbers, just something reliable and fun for now. I'll probably stick around 450whp.

Other than what I've mentioned, what else might I need to buy or do? I plan to install the turbos and additional parts myself this summer.
I also have an auto trans flashed with the Alpina flash and am approaching 80k miles, do I need to look into doing any trans maintenance to handle the higher power?
Thanks in advance for any advice and help!

I’d skip the 5 Inch VRSF, and run oue Phoenix racing fmic- it’s only a few bucks more and a far superior unit.

You’ll def want an upgraded CP if you don’t already..

We also offer inlets, if you wanted to run oem style- they work great- Outlets not mandatory, but if you wanted to run upgraded you could.

Based on power goals of 450- trans should be fine imo

Flash your auto with xhp stage 3 or 2 it's way much better than alpina.

I recently changed out my stock turbos for some RBs and I did some preventative maintenence while I was in there. When changing out the turbos, you will have to drop the subframe, so doing these items while you are there can save you money and time. If you haven't changed out these items, it would be wise to do so:

Water pump / thermostat
Oil filter housing gasket
Oil pan gasket
Valve cover gasket

From recent experience - don't let oil visit the exterior of the front of your engine...

Seriously agree with the Oil pan gasket while sub-frame is dropped.
Valve cover and Oil filter housing gaskets should be replaced as soon as there is any leaking.

I've had a oiled front end for 9+ months.
Rotted out plastic, hoses and potentially affected the serpentine belt.
Side affects can get costly.


Also, when replacing Turbos, do some research. (I'm sure you have been)
Pure do have a good reputation from what I read.
RB also has some great options with high mileage reports, at a very fair cost.
Admittedly I'm not there yet myself... surprised my stockers are holding at 180,000km and 15 PSI for a while now.
Soon I'm sure...

I'd recommend getting the ecs tuning installation kit. It has ALL the hardware that you need while other companies include just enough.

Definitely skip the 5" fmic. The Phoenix race fmic is worth the money and hands down great performance. If the trans is holding, I wouldnt worry too much about it. Although Id definitely go xHP. I upgraded from alpina and vrsf 5" and went with the above mentioned so I speak from experience. I also run Pure Stg2 "DD" and these perform VERY well.
