2009 GTR, 735whp

Default TheShopCT 2015 STi Tuned with Ecutek RaceRom: Now with Stock ECU FLEX FUEL support!!

Event: Dyno Tuning
Location: TheShopCT, Norwalk, CT
Ambient Temp:50F
Elevation: 0
Weather: Very nice
Tires: Stock Dunlops

Car: 2015 STi, 345 miles on the clock
Tuner: STi Mikey
Dyno Info: Mustang set to 0 correction
Transmission: 6 Speed
Gear: 4th
Peak HP: 303
Peak Torque: 356
Baseline hp/tq: 204 / 185
Target AFR: 11.1
Fuel: 93 OCT
Engine/Power Modifications: DW65C, Cobb catt'ed DP, Q300 CBE, Invidia EL headers



Finally got the opportunity to tune 1 of the 15's at TheShopCT tonight after work. I dont mind being corrected but I think this car may be the first 15 tuned state-side. Pretty cool if it is


This 15 is well equipped with the basic bolt ons, and remains on the dyno for the 1300 and 1.5xtr install.

Plan is 1 track day with that setup then right to a full sleeved / built head longblock and 6466 with all ETS goodies


Strong car but nothing out of the ordinary for an EJ with EL's. This thread is more of an introduction to a nice, new project. Should be in the 10's well before it crosses the 1000 mile mark on the odo

Mikey, how does the handling feel compared to the previous STI? I know the WRX saw major improvements, what about the STI?

That is part of the beauty of retaining the EJ motor. It's known, and a pile of parts are already available, no guess work, no surprises.

The WRX is more Evo-like in terms of handling. The STi is even better. These cars make for awesome road race cars, finally!!


Don't have any good technical info on the suspension yet. But I will say this. I moved onto the GTR and Merc as my favorite driving style is late night / high speeds on empty highways. With older chassis Subaru's, I felt like there was some instability at speeds in excess of 120-130mph. My WRX feels way more planted at 130-140mph than any Suby I have owned, or even driven. It provides me with being able to drive it the way I wish too

You have any pics of this exhaust from the rear? I'm confused between this and the tomei single canister titanium exhaust... I believe you are the first one tuned in the world. I haven't tuned mine yet.

How much of these gains are attributed to equal length headers?

Was wondering that too. I heard if u go EL, u lose the Boxer rumble. Which defeats the purpose of the new feature on the 15s, projecting the engine sound into the cockpit.

Nice for the aftermarket community to keep on selling the same dp and cat back since the STi sedan came back out in 2011

Mikey,
Yes I have a tuner. Thanks for the offer. I would have jumped on it being that I have followed you for a while. If these guys had no experience with Subaru's I would have. They are on point though. Especially with the crappy gas. I would have gotten tuned by now, but my wife came to visit Bahrain from NY so I had to show her a good time(spend money).

You'll lose about 70% of the boxer rumble.
