Not wanting a FMIC yet, maybe next year I'll upgrade everything if I get bored with the power for my DD needs.
On 85 expect around 350 on 93 300-320

Thanks, also what do you think about if I were to go with a FMIC? Like the RacerX FMIC so that I can keep my support.

That's fine, however a good tmic can support close to 400 and still be thermally efficient.

Thanks, I've had several people tell me to stay TMIC due to leaks, lag, etc.. So since the TMIC will support what I'll be throwing at it, I'm going to stay with it.

2004 WRX with 90k miles

1. Goal- Daily drivable (read: all-around) car that can get up and go if I want it to. I don't want much more than 300WHP. If I understand things correctly, much more than that and my propensity to break things increases dramatically.
>300, <350 WHP

2. Dyno- no idea

3. Shop: Again, no idea

4. Location: No idea

5. Gas: 91-93 octane

6. FMIC? I'd rather keep a TMIC if possible

Current mods- catless TBE, Cobb intake and Cobb stage 2 map. Installing ACT clutch this week.

It looks a little screwy, I know. To be perfectly honest, I don't know where I will be in a year, (timeframe for completing mods) which is why I can't answer a lot of those questions.
In order to reach that power output, I'm expecting to have to upgrade the fuel pump, injectors, intercooler and turbo. Is there some glaring bit that a scoob newb would miss?

You should have no problem at all getting above 300 with a protune. Not sure about just a stock map from Cobb AP. I like open source better so I'm bias, lol.

Which is why I'm taking it to EFI Logics I know the AP OTS maps won't work well with all of those mods. I can't wait to get the car and have it all put together I'll post Dyno pics as soon as i get em.

well an ap protune vs. an opensource tune comes out to almost a wash, and alot of places will do the protune on the cheap if you purchase the ap from them. even though i am completely in favor of opensource tunes (since i do opensource tunes), the ap has its advantages and situations where it is better suited to the customer than an opensource tune would be. plus, cobb's stuff is getting better and better recently...much more competitive with the opensource stuff than it used to be.

the person considering the tune should read up and do some research on both opensource and the ap to compare the pros, cons, and features of each one. then just make the decision that best suits their needs.

1. HP at the WHEELS - 300-320

2. What type of dyno are you going to be shooting for this number on? Dynopack I believe they use


3. If possible, tell us what shop it is. Someone may know how high or low that particular dyno reads. Agile Tuning

4. Where do you live? If not a well known city, what is the elevation?
MD. I'm at sea level as far as I know
5. What kind of gas will you be using? (octane level) 93

6. Are you opposed to a FMIC? I would rather not right now.

Car is 100% stock right now.

Stage 2 (downpipe, maybe intake) should get you pretty close, E85 would certainly help (injectors, fuel pump). If that's all you want power wise, I'd go stage two first, them see if you want more.

That sounds like a good plan... i'm not one of those guys that wants a bunch of noise and such, so I would really rather not get the full TBE. I'd rather the car sound as stock as possible. What about a EBCS and a better TMIC? How much more power might I be looking at? I read some processwest reviews, but some people talk about some difficulty with hoses and such. Is the AVO just as good? Better?

Avo is certainly good. Spearco is the best in my opinion. Honestly though, on a stock turbo you won't notice much of a difference. Especially on E85. You might get 10-20hp out of it. I'd wait on a intercooler till you decide to upgrade the turbo.

Talked to the local tuner today... he said "I would recommend a full turbo-back exhaust system and a ProcessWest top mount intercooler system. You will also need a Cobb AccessPort so we can tune the car for the new mods to get you to your horsepower goal."

I don't want to spend 600.00 on a friggen access port... I think they are nice and all, but why can't they just tune the car with the tactrix cable and whatever software... flash it and leave it at that?

Some tuners will only tune with an AccessPort. That could be why

Yeah I suppose so. I asked them if they could tune it with Ecutek or whatever it's called... one of those systems because I didn't want to spend the extra money on the AP. If not i'll have to have Sean Ivey or CBRD tune it.

Ok, had another tuner tell me the same mods, TBE, TMIC (process west) EBCS, and this one added the AEM intake. It seems maybe some of them are just trying to sell parts through their site.

Edit: I forgot to add that they also said I would need an intake manifold? I mean all of that for 300 hp for this car? It really doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to get to that power level.
