This thread is great. I am really anxious to see what you guys come up with and waiting for some real reviews of the car. I really want to see more pics without the fogs. I gotta figure out how to get one now!

Congratulations on your purchase and I hope to hear some good news about this car soon.

Good luck on your quest for correct ECU tuning

PS: Make a video of the car in action! (specifically, I want to hear the engine scream!)

Speaking of boost. Is there a boost gauge option on the '08? It looks like the clock is not removable like it was on the current model. So finding a place for the gauges looks like it's going to be more challenging.

Probably stuck with the steering column mount option.

how much power do typical WRX (2.0L with 16g or VF34/30) put down on your dyno?

I don't think that "WTF" constitutes inappropriate speech given the venue and audience. Isn't saying WTF really like saying "fudge" instead of "f$%k"?

Personally, as a customer, I'm pleased with Jeff's candor. Expressing his thoughts about the redline on the new STi with that particular euphemism was completely appropriate in my opinion.

For the ten runs you did with the new car, do you have a standard deviation calculated? Or you could give me the ten raw peak numbers and I'll run a t-test on them...

Well, we have a fitment for the 2008 WRX right now, and the only thing that will not work is the TMIC. And the WRX TMIC might work, but at this point, a completely new TMIC will be made. Not that ours won't make power over stock, but the stock IC and scoop are wider than before, so we can make an even wider core!
For the new core, are you considering going with a variable-geometry core? I've always suspected that the top-mount intercooler is limited not just with hot-side pressure drop and surface area, but also with air flow through the cold side. A variable-geometry core could be used to reduce the cold-side pressure drop and potentially improve overall cooling for a given car speed. Just a thought...

Yes..Ignore the cry babies and develop your products ..I will buy your Divorced wastegate Downpipe in a nano-second for my incoming 08' STI- I had one on both my 04' and 06' STI's and it was an excellent piece,beautifully made,and a better performer than the Cobb bellmouth Downpipe at least, according to my Butt-Dyno..
O.K..Now back to work with you..make stuff.

subscribed. I will probably never have a new STI, but I am very interested in what you find out.

Frank, could you either post or PM me more info. I'm trying to understand your variable-geometry core, but am left scratching my head.

No boost gauge, thank goodness! Our gauge pod works very well, as do the Prosport, or Defi gauges in them.

We have some video of the car on the dyno, but its pretty quiet and boring. In a short period of time, we will have some dynos!

Personally, we have not dynoed one of those, but PDXtuning has on our dyno. I belive 260-280 is pretty normal??

Nope, point well taken! I used it because its a term that has been used so much that the vulgar part is starting to go away. Its like in a few years the young kids will be using it, and not even knowing what i means! I almost put WTH (What the hell) but who the knows that WTH means! Back to the STI discussion!

I didnt take offense and do not think it is a big deal. My differential equations professor here at PSU says and writes WTF all the time when we can't solve a problem a certain way. I think its lost its vulgar as well. Anyways....looking forward to seeing those pics, should be a good treat for when i get out of class tonight!
