Yeah, it doesn't make much of a difference, maybe 5-10whp.

My advice if you want real power real cheap is this:

1- find out if you can get e85 regularly in your area, if so you're golden. Injectors, pump and a tune will get you more power than you can handle on the road for under a grand.

2- if you can't get e85 and still want stupid power you'll need a turbo upgrade. This means injectors, inter cooler, downpipes a turbo and a tune. This will cost about 3 grand.

You'll need a couple minor little bits like boost controllers but that's the simple, "get stupid power you'll never really use on the road" guide.

You will need a fully built block, upgraded/modified heads, modified intake and exhaust valves, rotated gt35r, fmic, injectors, fuel pump, fuel rail top feed conversation, etc. As far as reliability is concerned, just because you're making huge power doesn't mean it can't be reliable... To a certain extent. Contact Maxwell Power Services if you want the best built blocks.

I still say it will be more than that. Regardless, I have yet to see anything in that power range that would be considered "reliable".

Werd. When my old STi blew a tuner offered to 'build' it. I'm glad I didn't do it now... whole nother can of worms unless you've got deep pockets.

Below you see what i have already: the shop i bought the car from said it makes 300hp at the crank on pro-street tune with 1.5 psi over stock. Could this be an accurate number?

What would i need to do to get 300-330 hp at the wheels?

Located DFW Texas
93 pump gas
mustang dyno

2005 subaru baja Turbo Ej255 automatic
cobb intake and MAF
no cats
up-pipe
downpipe
turbo is aftermarket without but looks stock size.
sti injectors
some type of upgraded oil pump (i'll have to check the spec sheet)
hardened crossdrilled crank
arp headstuds
sti heads
sti rods
sti lifters
sti injectors

car runs quick but would love a little more out of it. i hear the auto-tranny is reliable to 400hp

my thoughts are i will need a bigger turbo (blouch td05 18g or td05 20g-xt), fmic and a re-tune.
