I am new to buying a 2012 Subaru STi, I have done all my research on parts to install for upgrades and all I need, now I have used Google to try and find the answer to my question or maybe I am not wording it right, but question I have is, after my upgrades, which will land me at around 350-360 BPH, and 290-320 at the wheel with about 22 psi for boost, I live in Texas but I'm about to move back to Tennessee, I was wanting to know between these two states which its 964 miles and takes 13 hours to get to tennessee, how long can I drive the car modded like that without putting major strain on it

With a proper tune and installed correctly, you should have no problem with the journey. Are you talking about adding all these parts without a tune?

1. You cannot figure out engine horsepower, so don't try to estimate it as you will fail miserably every single time.
2. You also cannot estimate power after mods as this varies on the tuner and tune.

I'm not sure what your question actually is. If higher HP and a long drive is your question, there is no question as once you are properly tuned, you can drive to Paraguay with no problem. Please be more specific if you need more help.

Who the hell puts it in the mind of people that you cannot drive a modern car for long stretches of time without hurting it?

I drove my "super duper highly modded econobox turbo subaru" 17 hours straight to Illinois from Virginia with ZERO issues. Did I freak out? Only when I had to piss.

This is what I'm also curious about. OP, when you say, "...drive the car modded like that", do the modifications you'll make include an aftermarket tune such as what one would get on a dynamometer? If the mods don't include an aftermarket tune, the answer is, stay in Texas until you can tune the engine.
