Default 2012 Subaru STI build completed by Forman Performance

I have to give a huge shout out to Dave, Brian and Vim at Forman for completing a motor build among many other modifications!
Car had its dyno this morning and the figures were unreal! 531whp and 480wtq on e85


Honestly they will do you the best work and charge the best prices!

Yup Forman are really really busy at the moment, if you are ever in the shop the phone never stops ringing with customers trying to book in!

My advice if you can, is pop by and discuss your needs with Vim in person. He'll give you completely honest advice and suggest only what you need to achieve your goals. Not naming names... But another company that quoted me for the build and general upgrade had a large number of items on the quote that I had no need to replace or upgrade for my power goals and in terms of parts/labour costs... I nearly died! Forman were at least 4K cheaper overall and I've ended up with a 530WHP daily driver!

Car is running the ATP GTX3576 and we decided to stop at 26psi. We could quite easily hit 30 psi and make around 580-600whp but I'd rather the block have some longevity.

Mm sounds good! Well i just need the build ill be throwing the engine back in with my homegirl and homie save my butt more money just drop off the long block and might get machine work hooked up too well see what happens. I have the turboXS gt30r rotated kit and will be running e85 along with some other goodies to back it up good. Lets see what power gains ill hit and where did you get tuned at?

Was just at Forman an hour ago and they're really busy, as mentioned. It's worth your time to visit the shop to talk to Vim and the guys rather than a PM or phone call.

You won't find a more reputable shop, IMHO.

Great team at Forman! They stayed late last night (It seems like they do every night) to finish my work. Kuddos to your build!

Just blew my motor at streets of willow the other week. I'll mostly likely get motor work done by them. Would it be better to get my short block machined or a new blueprinted short block?

SMH. Thanks Ferdie.

On the latest tune revision, I think the car made ~590whp.
