Default Element Tuning: Hydra, Hydramist, 668 whp@30 psi, 06 STI 2.5, 35R

I just got really busy and finally had a chance to post the numbers for this beast of a track car. By the way it's an 05 STi not 06 STi.

Numbers
Dyno: Dyno Dynamics @ Pina Motorsports, WA
Tuner: Phil Grabow Element Tuning
Wheel HP: 668whp UNCORRECTED
Wheel TQ: 576wtq UNCORRECTED
Target Boost: 30 psi
Target AFR: 11.5
Fuel: Q16/92 Octane pump gas mix
Ambient Temp: 50
Elevation: 0


Car Info
Year: 2005
Engine Management: Element Tuning Hydra EMS
Turbo: GT35R 1.06 Twin Scroll
Intercooler: APS
Meth Kit: Hydramist 80/20 water/methonal
Injectors: 1260cc, Bosch 044 Fuel Pump
Engine: World One, Element Tuning Rods, CP Pistons, BC +1mm valves, Cosworth cams, stock block and bore.
Intake/Inlet: World One
Headers: Titek
Uppipe: World One
Downpipe: World One
CBE: Greedy
Other: Element Tuning Competition Catch Can


What else is there to say but WOW! I had tuned this car once before but we ran out of fuel and the clutch was slipping. Fast forward to a new Element Clutch Masters, larger fuel injectors, higher fuel pressure, and what do you know the FP diaphram fails. We fix it and climb to 668 whp on 50% Q16 and pump gas along with the Element Hydramist.

The car had a little more in it but given the problems with the FP regulator resulting in extended tuning time the owner felt that just about 670 whp was even too much for a road race car

Thanks,
Phil Grabow

Thanks everyone.

Thanks again guys I tune for you

This car has the Cosworth 278/272 with 10.8 and 10.3 lift I believe. I think the powerband has little to do with the cams as these things can be laggy pigs on some setups but just the overall build, Hydra, IC piping, and turbo kit work in harmony to deliver a great powerband.

holy crap, me likey. makes me want to start saving up my pennies for a built block.

although my car is still running strong, you can always have more power.

I know where I'll be headed once the pennies are stacked up though.

The car is a NW car and I tune a PINA in Kent, WA. a couple times a year. I'll likely be tuning Hydras in the area this spring.

The twin scroll kit was custom made.

Hey Phil,

Will you be tuning anywhere near New Mexico in the next few months? I will need to get my STi buggy Hydra/Hydramist tuned. Arizona, Colorado, Texas maybe?

Thanks
