I have not called for a quote. $1600 for just the Brembo fronts, right? Plus 1500 for matching rears?
Dont quote me on this but when i was on Wilwoods site comparing the calipers I believe the difference between the Dynopro's and the BSL6n's was not a huge margin, I think like +/- 120 per caliper, when comparing other BBKs. My only concern is that the Dynopro's are availble in a dust boot version and the BSL6n's are stainless steel pistons, so dont know what that means in terms of DD maintence. Those BSL6n's would look killer behind your wheels, 6 pots allday over Sti Brembos.

Yeah $1600 plus and I think $1800 for the rears!

All of the kits sound amazing, I wonder If that have made progress on the rear kit for the 2011+ WRX's?

I love that again, this would totally be a cosmetic expense... But, I'd love me some bigger brakes!

build is looking nice I like the PW TMIC! and yes mustang dynos do read low but are apparently more accurate. I've heard if you want to compare it to a Dyno-Jet it would be like 10-15 percent higher.

I didn't even get a map for the 93oct, that would have also been another $200. It sucks about not having higher octane fuel but it is what it is...
Makes sense. No reason to pay for something you can't use. I guess I had just assumed since you swapped injectors and pump. You have a lot of headroom in your fuel system now.

Yes, I'm a little bitter because I spent so much money for a rather low number, but I can drive this car as hard as I want all day without any concerns of damage and that seems worth it to me.

I'd also be interested in seeing a log through Virtual Dyno or Airboy. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I'd be happy to run them if you'd like.

Hey bro, Great job with the build and dyno #s. Try not to get discouraged because you're right alot of people would rather see higher numbers then something safer with a spreadsheet that reads slightly lower.

Also i have been on a desperate hunt for great looking wheels for our 2011 WRX's. Think i may have a great option for you! its very nice and subtle and great fitment IMO.

They are Rays 17X9 +45

The car looks great. Seems like a well balanced and well thought out build.

Don't just look at the raw numbers; the true story is in the % gains you saw over stock and where the power is under the curve.

Hey Man, yeah I have looked at those also but I couldn't find them in 17x9 with our bolt pattern, only for the STI. The 5x100 I found were only in 17x7 or 18x7.5 Did you find them custom drilled? If so, how much?

Thanks!!

Thank you guys for the positive feedback on my numbers. I'm feeling much better lately after all the support from here. I'm now saving for a re-tune when I'm back in NY for Easter. I think it'll be good to see what e85 can really do on a VF52!

Hmmm, The exhaust has been much less of a distraction since the beginning few days after install. I do think it still has a drone to it that can drive people nuts when I have passengers in the car. I love it now, It is a mean sounding exhaust!
I think it depends a lot on who is in the car with me, If I'm trying to go out to a nice dinner with my fiance, it's a little childish sounding and slightly annoying. 99% of the time it just me in the car and I barely notice it anymore and would even think about going catless and headers if I had the extra money.

Definitely not stock or close to stock sounding. At 3000 RPM on the highway, it can be quite loud!

Also, I've had a bunch of people chime in saying that there is a huge difference with the sedan being much quieter. So it must have something to do with the interior shape of the hatches.

I decided to give the Virtual Dyno a try for myself to learn how it works.
I feel my results came out well but I'm sure there is a lot to learn about the software and the type of logs that you input.
I did three pulls on the flattest, straightest road I could find. The first two are in third and I tried one in fourth until I got scared going too fast with snow tires.

A big thanks to Xluben for giving me the idea to try the VD.

You should be in 3rd with the WRX tranny. 4th is for the STI's 6 speed. Turn your smoothing up to about 6 or maybe higher to smooth out the bumps. Looks pretty strong though. The Dynojet setting on Virtual Dyno reads fairly high, but I would guess that you would easily be around 300WHP or even slightly higher on a higher reading Mustang dyno like the one COBB uses.

EDIT: Also, no one really uses the SAE correction on Virtual Dyno. Most people just leave it unchecked and get what they get.

That makes me feel a little better, I just looked back at the speed data on the .csv file and I was doing 119 on the street which in my opinion, wasn't the smartest thing I've done all day.
Third it is!

I'll give it another shot over the weekend, it's a great piece of software and I'd love to figure out how to get consistent results from run to run. I'm sure it comes in time...

Thanks for the help Ben!

Yeah, topping out 4th on snow tires is not something I'd recommend, lol. I don't even like to top out 3rd on my snow tires. It start feeling pretty sketchy when you go fast.

I would just try re-analyzing your 3rd gear logs with a much higher smoothing value. I think they'll be pretty close. A few more runs will help you figure out what they average out to, and then you can pick one in the middle and use that.

I've been checking constantly with the AP for knocking... It's all good. I have to give credit to Chris @ EFI, he made such an awesome map! I'm more and more impressed with it each day.

It's coming, I'm away at a trade show in Vegas till next weekend... It's an easy one so when I get back I'll get it posted!

The Process West is so perfect though. I'm so glad I went with that one!

Awesome thread, I have a 2011 WRX sedan and we have a somewhat similar setup. I'm getting my car protuned next weekend i can't wait to see the results, I'm hoping for 300whp. I love the way the PW TMIC looks but i just really didn't want to spend nearly $1,000 on it. I went with the FMS which is pretty much an exact knock off of the PW but $400 cheaper, I picked it up used for $390 with 1k miles on it though. I wasn't plan on getting it but i pretty much last minute decided to buy some more parts before i get a protune. Here's a list of my mods.

COBB AP
COBB DP
COBB SF intake
COBB lightweight crank pulley
Invidia Q300 exhaust
Grimspeed uppipe
Grimpseed EBCS
FMS TMIC

Hey Matt,

Wow, yeah were like twins! Haha
Where are you going for the tune? Hopefully you are running 93 octane... I was hoping for 300+ with the setup I have now but fell way short on 91oct and on a Mustang Dyno.
I'm heading back over EFI during the Easter holiday to do an e85 tune, Then I better hit 300!

Good luck with the tune. Also do you have a build thread here?

Cheers!

- Jason
