Default EQ Built Block, ATP 35R, 5,000ft Above Sea Level, 91 Octane + Meth = 437WHP!

This is a project car we've been working on for a while. We finally delivered the car to the customer in Reno this weekend and did high altitude tune on the brand new motor. Here is the mod list:

05 STI:

- EQ Tuning Stage 1 Shortblock (CP Pistons, ACL Race Series Bearings, OEM Forged STI Rods, Balanced/Polished OEM STI Crank, Balanced & Blueprinted to our strict specs)

- EQ Tuning Mild Built Heads (BC Stage 2 Cams, BC Titanium Springs/Retainers, 5 Angle Valve-Job, Mild P&P)

- EQ Tuning Prototype Split Pulse Header/Uppipe

- ATP Stock Location 35R w/ Integrated Tial 44mm EWG (dumped back into DP)

- TurboXS FMIC

- EQ Tuning Blow-Through MAF Kit for TurboXS/SSAC FMIC

- EQ Tuning Short Ram Intake Kit for Blow-Through Application

- Greddy Type RS BOV

- Invidia Catless Downpipe w/ custom flex EWG dump tube

- Invidia Catback

- EQ Tuning Baffled Oil Catch Can

- Deatschwerks 850cc Injectors

- Perrin Fuel Rails

- Custom Oil Cooler

- Coolingmist Water/Meth Injection modified with all braided lines, S-HSV, and different spray nozzle

- Grimmspeed Phenolic Spacers

- Hallman Pro RX MBC

- RPS Max Series Clutch / ACT Streetlight Flyhweel


This tune was done with Cobb AP at over 5,000 feet ASL on 91 Octane and 50/50 water/meth. Peak boost was kept at 24psi peak as the motor is still breaking in .

The power we got at this elevation is really impressive but the lag was a bit more than I expected. Everything is MUCH laggier up at this elevation, so I'll reserve judgment until we get to tune this car down at sea level on some race gas. 30psi+ and 8k RPM should really wake this one up!

Here is the graph from the high elevation tune:





*** Standard Dyno Chart Disclaimer ***

This software reads low and should be compared to the lower reading mustang dynos. Here are some proven numbers and trap speeds for reference:

Stock WRX - 155-165whp
Stock STI - 215-225whp

265-275whp - 107-108mph traps
300-310whp - 112-113mph traps
325-335whp - 115-116mph traps
380-390whp - 120-121mph traps

*** End Disclaimer ***

Thanks

How long can he hold it out for past 7200? I wanna say that car is good for 126-127mph traps, but not if hes falling back to 325ish whp every shift. Still, that thing must be crazy quick!!

We actually have it revving out to 7500RPM now which makes for very little lag between shifts. It'll go up to 8k RPM with race gas

We were hitting about 86% IDC's by 7500RPM with a fairly rich a/f.

It is quite laggy, but from my experience tuning at this elevation, I've seen larger turbos spool up as much as 1000RPM later than they would at sea level. The altitude really changes everything. FYI, we were seeing 24psi by about 5300RPM. Down at sea level, I'd expect full boost around 4400-4500RPM which wouldn't be bad at all considering the cams.

The factory STI rods are forged and I have yet to see one fail. I don't see them being a problem until you start pushing 35psi+.

Thanks

Haha... they're completed. We're getting some materials to make fabrication a bit faster and easier, but otherwise we're taking orders

This is an ATP GT35R. It has true Garrett wheels, Garrett compressor housing, and a custom cast exhaust housing.
