After a few heartbreaks, I'm happy to get my wagon back on the road and running right. Power comes on smooth and HARD. I'm going to try to get to the track soon to get some numbers.

how much boost are you running on this tune?

are you running out of injector up top? what are your duty cycles?

just a curious onlooker

<- has 06 wrx and a 18g waiting to be installed.

That's possible. Stage 2 STIs with only 505 cc injectors can make that power or even slightly more.

This run was at 18psi IIRC. It actually makes more boost on the street ~19.5psi

I've been having issues with my laptop, so I haven't gotten any logs of the new tune yet. They were high 80's, low 90's with the old tune, so I'd guess they'd still be similar.

I blew 2nd gear on my stock trans after 98k miles (30k with the 18g). It was rebuilt a month or so ago with LGT 1-4 gears, which I'm hoping will last another 100k miles. The new ratios are VERY nice though.

what kind of ratios and final drive you have now with LGT gears installed? Is this all your modlist? I don't see exhaust modes...

Thanks for posting this. I have a similar set up . This gives me a good idea of what to expect. Very nice power band. I am curious as to why you went with the 06 injectors. I had my stockers cleaned, modded and flow tested to 819-821 for like a hundred dollars.

those are some good numbers. I have a 07 wrx and I have a vf39, I am thinking about buying a 18g and selling my vf39.Were you driving your car hard with the 18g?

I don't drive like a complete jackass, but I definitely do enjoy my car. My car was Stg 2 for the first 60k or so miles, then 18g/etc for the remaining 30k. I found part of a gear tooth one day when changing trans fluid, then 2nd gear stripped on me the next time I drove it and gave it power.

Will yours last? Dunno.

i was saying read the thread. the answer to your question was posted above it. it had already been asked/answered. also, you'd see that i'm putting an 18g on my car, so yes i think it can take the power. but i guess that might just be me being hopefull

I guess I can't read because looking back and you clearly stated that you had an 18g waiting to be installed. What type of numbers are you shooting for? sorry guys I didn't mean to come off like a jack. I don't think you drove your car to crazy. It just seems some cars can take the power and some can't I am just happy to see these numbers with an 18g and a 2.5L. Most of the post I have been reading doesn't even have the 18g cracking the 300whp mark. Congrats on the tune.

You're good. I don't think either of us were harping on you - just letting you know it may or may not hold up over time.

well hurry up and come join the 18g 2.5L club
that being said and 18g isnt that much of an improvement over a vf39 (have driven cars with both). if i had a 39 i'd go 20G instead of 18g as i'd hard to find it justifyable to spend that much $ to only gain a bit of hp.

You couldn't really tell that big of a difference between vf39 and 18g?. I thought an18g would pull hard on avf39. Sorry for getting off topic. wouldn't 20g blow gears?

pull hard on a 39? not really. more power up top- yes, huge difference- no. 20Gs have been run without issue on stock tranny, while others have blown up the tranny with the stock turbo.
