Here is a 2007WRX wagon that we just finished a huge transformation on. This was already a pretty off the wall wagon with Work XD9 18x10 +18 on it. Yeah.... kind of crazy for a GD wagon. He contacted us for a motor and we ended up creating a monster. We used his core and transformed it into our ML500+ spec engine. We also fully built the cylinder heads with Ferrea SS valve, Manley spring and retainer kit, and BC stage3 cams. Then we found the FP 68HTA turbo to be toasted. We called upon our friends at Blouch Performance Turbochargers for one of their badass 3.5XT-R stock location turbos. We welded the flapper shut to utilize a EWG set-up, and the rest of the supporting mods were already in place. We fitted the engine with the Perrin parallel fuel rail system to make sure we had plenty of flow to the DW1000cc injectors and clean up the manifold/engine bay. Here's the complete mod list:

Engine Mods:
- Manley Performance 99.75mm 2618 forged piston set
- Manley Performance 4340 Forged H-Beam connecting rod set
- ACL Race bearings for connecting rods and mains
- Blue printed assembly to MLT specifications
- Ferrea 6000 Series competition standard size intake valves
- Ferrea 6000 Series competition standard size exhaust valves
- Manley performance valve spring and retainer kit
- Motion Lab Tuning performance 3-angle valve job
- Brian Crower stage3 camshafts

Turbo set-up:
- Perrin Equal length manifold
- Catless downpipe
- Custom catback
- Blouch 3.5XT-R stock location turbo
- Perrin 3" turbo inlet
- Grimmspeed EWG up-pipe
- DW 1000cc injectors
- DW 320LPH fuel pump
- Perrin parallel fuel rail kit
- Custom Cobb speed density dyno tuning by Todd
- Exedy stage1 heavy duty clutch kit
- ACT lightweight flywheel

He has 285's on all four corners, but it still spins through 2nd gear on the 6speed STi transmission that has been fitted to the car. The car feels strong and exceeded the power we originally thought the turbo set-up would achieve. Shows that a well built engine and high quality components adds up to more power! The pink lines are the high run of the day, the greenish lines is how we rolled the car off the dyno after some more tuning and a bit of heat soak.

Final HP/TQ:


Here is an older picture of the car so you can get an idea of what 18x10 Work XD9 in white look like on a WRB 07WRX wagon. He has since added the Karlton fender flares and 25mm spacers! New pics of it when it leaves the paint booth should be shared with us soon.

Just to throw some more info on our dyno out there, some of the previous cars we have tuned recently:

- 460RWHP/540RWTQ on a twin turbo 2010 camero at 8psi w/ twin T61
- 398RWHP/420RWTQ on a 2007 stock Shelby GT500 mustang
- 480AWHP/400AWTQ on a evox MR that we built the cylinder head and TC-SST transmission with an FPRed
- 340AWHP/335AWTQ on an stock turbo evox with bolt ons
- 252RWHP/265RWTQ on a SR20DET swapped 240sx with the new series2 EMS from AEM and a GT28RS at 14psi
- 236AWHP/267AWTQ on a TD04 stage2 WRX

I have plenty of other tunes on the new dyno. We find it pretty close with the mustang we used to use verified by some previously tuned customers. For example we had a speed6 that we did a while back. It made 2hp less and 15ft/lbs less on our dyno versus the mustang that we originally tuned on.

You can also see some of the other recent posts we have had on the Proven Power bragging forums.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Haha thank you sir. Yeah we didnt have much to do with that set-up. I think he was just trying to be a little out there for the show he was attending. He actually ended up winning best in show which is awesome! If I'm not mistaken he has since moved the location back behind the bumper to make it a much safer, but still functional, set-up.

I think the car might have benefited a little from a more aggressive cam grind. At least in the top end. We are very pleased with how broad the powerband is, considering the peak power made, with the BC stage2 cams. This is their 272 grind not the 280. I think it kept the spool a bit more tolerable. He wanted a more well rounded power band as this is a daily driven vehicle, versus the absolute most peak power possible. I think this set-up is definitely satisfying that need

Thanks for the comments guys!

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Blouch has really been coming through for us lately. I feel they are making the best stock location turbos currently hands down. The FP options make power, but we have seen some tough fitment in the past. This is pretty large for stock location and we ran into zero issues fitting this to the car. Might have been a little easier since we did the swap on the engine stand though

Thanks for your comment!

Amen to that. I switched to a blouch dom 3 XTR after I bought a FP that didn't want to fit in the stock location. The Dom 3 XTR fit perfect and made big power. I'll be running a GTX3576r within the next two months. I'll have to post some data on this bad boy.

Car looks great Andrew! Are you going to buy another dccd controller to get the power to the ground now that the build is done? ( I bought your old one)

Nice number and I'm loving the Manley piston and rod combo. I have them in my sti for 40k and it runs quieter than stock and doesn't burn a drop of oil. Great parts.

Absolutely. The off-set wrist pin and anti-friction skirt coating make these pistons a great value. Not to mention the high quality ring packs they include. For an economical H-Beam rod set, I havent found any better! Well balanced and strong enough for most street cars.

Thanks for posting up!

I think I have the stronger rods but yeah there parts are great. 400 whp for 40k and less than 1/2 qt burnt every 3000 at 27psi daily is fine by me. Nice build.

Oh yeah, the TurboTuff are a BADASS rod. In this case with less than 475wtq the H-beam will provide reliability. We have another car that is hitting 540wtq @ 4000rpm on VP MS109 race fuel and a 20g turbo at 25psi. I think with that kind of spool and power we will use the TT
