Not trying to rain on your parade or anything here. You were just boasting about your spool and I noted that it was misleading because of the 07+ STI gearing.
I did an FP Red recently and was not impressed with the spool either.
I think we should look at torque at 4000rpm for comparison. Torque is what makes a car feel good and fun.
This is my car on your road dyno, 5sp 3rd gear, FP black 68lb/min stock location.
EQ - 05 STI, EQ Built Block, GT35 Rotated, E85 - 473whp ...65lb/min rotated
EQ - FP Red on E85 - 456whp! 65lb/min stock location
As far as power goes I have no doubt that I will make around the same power if I raise the timing to 26*

you probably hit 300wtq by 5000rpm
