My DSM wasn't quite 350+ but it was dyno'd at 310WHP and I used it year round. Never had any issues and could rip it when I had to. 300-325 is a great number for a DD.

I daily drive mine, even go way out of my way to run e85 to get the most out of it. But there are times I will load a lower boost map if I don't need/care about max hp.

Lots of cars come from the factory with more than 350 whp now. They may not be practical to drive year round but they can be with the right tires if you need.

Are you referring to 350whp WRXs and STIs or any car with 350whp?

Drove my 370 whp 98 Legacy year round. The engine had over 50k miles before the new owner burned it to the ground by putting a system in the trunk and catching on fire.

EJ257 swap, pistons, valves, head studs, DOM 3.0R ran 22 psi for over 3 years and never one problem.

Not joking, the car is toast..not even a month after I sold it.

And the mint GF8 I just bought after selling it, I totalled it this past Sunday...driving back to Houston from Wisconsin I fell asleep 20 min before my rest stop at 2am and hit the left gaurd wire. One of my dogs flew out the window and died also. Having the car shipped from Missouri to part it out and try to make some money back.

I used my C5 Corvette as a DD when it wasn't snowing. It spent the winter in the garage needless to say. Have a bone stock WRX now so no where near the power of the Vette. Yet it's more fun to watch people's expressions when a little box with 265 HP leaves them in the dust. They expect that with a Vette.

Yes, my bad. I meant how many guys here in our community drive there wrx/sti year round even with 350+ whp? The reason I asked is because I'm going to be having upgrades done and want to know if ppl think it's practical for a dd

Don't be stupid, respect your vehicle and the power it has, and you're fine.

As far as being "practical" yes, it's manageable power.

Well sti's dont have 300hp to the pavement. They require some work to get there and in doing so u are going to loose your warrenty. But a actual "300hp" dd would be fun for sure, not to mention 350hp
