Default what kinda numbers to expect

I have an 06 sti. im getting ready to throw a few parts on and get a protune and I was wondering what kinda number to expect and is there's anything else I should add before I get tuned. here's a list of everything that's going to be done. turbo back exhaust, intake, front mount intercooler, walboro 255, perrin up pipe, tgv deletes, 8mm phenolic spacers, grimmspeed ebcs, 1 step colder plugs and turbo inlet. is there anything else i should throw on. I was thinking about some injectors but don't know if that would be worth it on the stock turbo. its going to be tuned on a mustang dyno. thanks

Oh good lord.

See the word I bolded in your post? Who is the person that's going to protune it?

Once you answer that question, call that person and go over this with him. If you're just buying parts and plan on dumping you car (and the parts he didn't recommend because you never spoke to him) off at a tuner and going "have fun!", your tuner won't be so happy. He'll also be able to tell you what numbers to expect.

Looking at your list alone I agree with the above two posts. CALL YOUR TUNER!!!!! see what they say.

Right off the bat I would say ditch the front mount. All you will do is create LAG!!!!!
Unless you are going to go with a larger turbo.

Hows your suspension? Tires?

Going fast is fun but if you are sticking with stock turbo a fuel pump injectors, and exhaust, and a tune is what you will need to max it out.
Spend the front mount money on suspention and tires.

To me, those mods look great to support a larger turbo, but I wouldn't expect more than your typical stage 2 setup otherwise.

what's the point of upgrading all those parts without bigger injectors, and a bigger turbo? It wouldn't be beneficial if you stay with a stock turbo with all this mods that you're planning to install. You will be wasting your money doing a protune twice for not having injectors and upgrading the turbo same time as the other mods that you've listed.

Ummm simple, he probably has plans/dreams of a bigger turbo in the future but wants a fun car now. He's getting it tuned so it lasts. Just a little tip for you wrx-men, with turbo cars you don't just slap on parts under the hood and don't tune them.

Ditch the FMIC. I'm at 385whp without one. You don't need one. Also, if you plan on going for bigger power later (more than 350whp let's say), you might want to start thinking of dropping in forged pistons. It's a serious weak point of the ej257 and will need to be addressed at some point, so you might as well play it safe and get them sooner rather than later. Besides that, you could PnP the stock turbo, and convert to an EWG set-up. Headers would also be a good addition (EL for more power, UEL if you want to keep subie rumble). Also, you only really need one step colder plugs when you're about 100whp over stock, which I don't see you getting with the current set-up you listed. Finally, why phenolic spacers? I just don't think they're worth it with your set-up; it doesn't seem like you're trying to build a race car, so the slight decrease in intake manifold temperature doesn't really play to any advantage. It honestly seems like you kind of just threw together some random parts into a list of what you want. If I could make a suggestion, I would say talk to your tuner about your power goals and budget and let him decide what you should get and what's worth it.

Stage 2 is a blast, so responsive! I ran it with stock injectors and it was fine. The list is fine too but ditch the front mount you won't need it. As mentioned figure out who's going to tune it and ask them if they have any other recommendations.

I like the recommendation to spend the FMIC on suspension parts, probably start with sway bars and end links and go from there. Look into some polyurethane bushings too, maybe shifter bushings, and there's some suspension bushings you could play with after the sways and end links are taken care of. You'll still have cash left over from the $1000 front mount.

Most importantly, get this thing on a track and actually use it!
