Default USA's most powerful WRX!!

Here is the dyno on pump gas, 17psi, with catalytic converter in place:




Here is the dyno on race gas, cat removed, 18psi:




You can read more about the car at http://www.projectcobb.com/conebasher/

Whats impressive, is they weren't even trying, or aware that they were approaching the USA dyno record with this car. They just wanted good low rpm power for autocrossing. When I pointed out to Chris that they were close to the record with that pump gas run, they hit 400 just for fun

that was with the APS SR40 turbo which was maxed out

they say they will slap on the SR50 tomorrow just for fun to see what it will do

oh, for some perspective, check this out:

http://24.160.114.191:8080/power.xls

check the power band compared to some other cars

This a track car too, not a drag car. Totally useable powerband that isn't peaky. I think this shows things to come. Also notice that the car doesn't keep making power on the top end (looks like there is a LOT of untapped potential).

Just plain sick. btw,

Texas takes the HP Record!

Very nice - - but its 2.5 Litre - so its a seperate catagory

Looks to me after close examination of the dyno sheets that the sr40 wont spool that great on a regular 2.0 litre block

On a 2.0 - I'd say it would spool up about the same as the pe1820 - - no telling how the peak HP would vary - becuase they have also thrown cams and other tricks in the mix as well

I would really love to see a dyno sheet on that SR40 turbo on a base stock WRX block motor

In conclusion - COBB seems to be doing great work and it shows with the amazing looking cone basher car !

I see, displacement changes your category.
but not STI motors, FP Green turbos, etc.

seems kinda arbitrary =)

Well - - if you look at motorsports - displacement is very commonly used as a limitation - e.g. - group N

I know nothing of 2.5 L turbo subarus - - it looks to be a totally unique animal - certainly very hard to compare spool up times with a 2.0 L

As far as sti motors - its the same 2.0 L

turbos are also often used as a limitation.
as are restrictor plates
as is type of fuel

and nobody is comparing spool up times here.
the only point here is to declare victory, for now, in the petty and silly war that is WHOOPASSSS dyno records.

silly but fun!
and this is the most powerful WRX in the USA.
and it didn't need fancy STI heads, or intake to do it

but don't let me get to you. im just messing around.
MY car only puts down 250 to the wheels.

It's Cobb Tuning's AutoX car.

Read about it here.

I guess I can understand being so excited from the dyno's that you didn't read the text that went along with it in the post. It took me a minute to calm down and climb back up into my chair after seeing the charts.

Just in case some of you haven't seen this beast in person, here is a couple of pics of the ConeBasher in action at a local AutoX.















Some of the TXIC members were fortune enough to ride shotgun in this beast.

Thats nothing. I was told that there will be a much more powerful one coming from Cobb. About twice the HP to the wheels.

I know its not a WRX, thats why I didn't say WRX. Yeah its going to be on the older body. I'm guessing a flat 6 will be the engine.

I wonder why they use the 18" wheels on it. Some 15 or 16" wheels would probably work better for autocross. Unless they are using a different transmission with better gearing or something.

If I remember correctly the tires are 285/30/18 on the front and back! Rims are about 11 or 12" wide.

I hate to say it but I agree with Al. Those are sick numbers and much respect to those guys but it is a 2.5l. It is the most powerfull wrx in the U.S. but i'm not really impressed with the numbers from a car that has that much more work done to it.

Later today or tomorrow you will see why i'm not very impressed with those #'s.

later today cobb will also have dynos from that car with a BIG turbo on it =)

besides, the car with more work done to it will always win, unless one of the car's tuning is out of whack.

there is no magic in engine output.

The Cone Basher does not seem to perform as well on the track as the looks and numbers would indicate.
