Default EQ - 2006 STI - FP Red, 91 Octane - 360whp!

We just finished up another car and got it tuned on the dyno. This is a customer who drove about 3 hours to have us work on his 06 STI. He had a previous setup done at another shop out of state and was running a a smaller turbo on E85. He now wanted to switch back to pump gas but still keep some good power, so he decided to size up the turbo significantly.

He already had a built engine, so he decided to go a bit big. He chose the Forced Performance Red and left the rest to us. We installed the new turbo, an EQ Tuning FMIC kit with blow-through MAF, a Tial BOV, Perrin EL Headers, Tigwerks EWG UP with Tial 38mm EWG, TGV Deletes, Perrin Inlet, and an Aeromotive in-tank fuel pump. The final setup is:


Event: Custom Tune/Dyno
Location: Equilibrium Tuning - Fairfield, CA
Ambient Temp: 70 degrees Fahrenheit
Elevation: ~100ft above sea level

Car: 2006 Subaru STI
Tuner: ED @ Equilibrium Tuning
Peak HP at RPM: 360whp @ 6350RPM
Peak Torque at RPM: 329ft-lbs @ 5150RPM
Target Boost: 21psi
Fuel: Cali 91 Octane

Engine/Power Modifications:

Built Shortblock
FP Red Turbo
EQ Tuning FMIC Kit
Tial BOV
Perrin 3" Inlet
TGV Deletes
Perrin EL Headers
Tigwerks EWG UP with Tial 38mm EWG
PE850cc Injectors
Aeromotive Stealth Fuel Pump
Hallman MBC
Perrin CATTED TBE
EQ Tuning Custom Tune on 91 Octane Pump Gas



After about 4 hours on the dyno, this is where we ended up:


That's 360whp/329ft-lbs at 21psi peak boost on straight 91 Octane pump gas, revving out to 7400RPM. The power levels are awesome considering the car retains a catted downpipe and the heads have no work done to them. Even though this is a bit on the laggy side for a lot of people, revving out to 7400RPM still gives a nice usable powerband.

*** Standard Dyno Chart Disclaimer ***

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

Stock 02-05 WRX - 155-165whp
Stock 04-07 STI - 215-220whp
Stock 08-11 STI - 190-200whp

265-275whp - 107-108mph traps
300-310whp - 112-113mph traps
325-335whp - 115-116mph traps
350-360whp - 118-120mph traps

Thanks

Hey Ed, nice job! Any reason why you didn't go any higher than 21 psi for the tune? I see built block and immediately say it can take more but I know 91 oct piss fuel in Cali is the worst!

Haha. Well it was two separate sessions. On the first attempt we ran out of fuel so we swapped out the fuel pump and filter then tried again the next day. It would have probably been done in 2-3 hours otherwise. Tomorrow we finish the tune at the track .

You answered your own question . I'm generally hesitant to run over 20psi on our pump gas. In reality this setup could probably run 22-23psi on pump but this car doesn't have an EGT gauge and the customer wants the car to last. This is already faster than the car was previously on E85, so the customer is very happy.

This is my vehicle and i absolutely love it. Ed and everyone at EQ tuning did a fantastic job with my Subaru. The Eq tuning FMIC is so sleek looking and the blow off valve and EWG just sound so friggin badass. I highly recommend everyone that is able, gets EQ tuned.

Thanks for the kind words William! Your car was a pleasure to put together and tune. I love how nicely cars come out when the right parts are chosen.

Enjoy the car and don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions in the future.

Thanks

We have a Dynocom dyno that is calibrated to read like my old road dyno software which reads just like lower reading Mustang dyno. To accomplish this, we run a .85 correction factor.

Thanks
