^ Jeeze I got mine identical to yours but no Navi for that NEW last November in Chicago. Either way good luck with it. There are so many things you can do. Just with Turbo Back exhaust, a modded air box, APS BPV, and a good tune I made 281hp on Benchmark's Dyno. Which is well over 300 on any other.

PS. Buy snow tires. I made it the first winter on mine with the stock summer tires... not sure how.... but now I have a set of Blizzacks and a set of RE11's for the summer, which if the tires have not been changed you will be do for soon. I went through my first set in about 19K miles. But I race quite a bit.

What are the stock tires? Mine has a set of Dunlop Sports on it with at least 70% of the tread left.

As far as the tires, yes you still have the stockers on there. I would make sure to get some winter tires before you die..... They are not so good in the snow. Unless you prepare for every turn, and you learn how to drift... lol... you will want an extra set of wheels with snow tires.

So with a bypass valve, "air box mod", turbo back, and tune an 08+ STi will dyno 330wheel horsepower? I'm missing what they did to they 08's and newer that gave them such power advantages over previous years with the stock turbo..?

Dude its benchmark's dyno it gives you 4 extra PSI. IDK 330awhp sounds a little high for a stage 2 2.5L VF series, but that's just me.

Thanks Everybody I'm really enjoying the refinement of the Sti over the wrx.

Sorry the wheels aren't for sale

And I still have my wrx(look out for a full car part out, down to the frame, when the weather warms up a bit)

There is no sales tax in Delawere

make sure you get a protune ASAP. my buddy has gone through 2 engines, 2 transmissions, and a turbo because of the stock tune on his 08 sti. he is currently having another transmission put in and just had a full rebuild of the motor including a brand new shortblock.
