Wheel HP?

First you'll need a bigger turbo. Minimally you're using an 18G but more likely 20G to comfortably get there.

Second you need to not choke the air flow. This may mean a change to the intake and to the exhaust, but I don't know how the newer cars are for flow versus older ones. Proven Power Bragging section can help you identify what's needed.

Third, add boost.

Fourth, hope you didn't break the #4 ringland tuning the car. Ideally you should pull the engine and swap in forged pistons as step #1, but 99.9% of the people modding their cars will never do that. They will simply wait to break the stock ringland and then rebuild the engine after it happens.

That about does it. Add the E85 onto a stage 2 and you will be around 330whp most likely.

Maybe search around PROVEN POWER BRAGGING before making a thread with 99% typical mods to these cars?

A good step is to never modify it until your warranty is up. Then continue to never modify it.

I watch with the cai, i know there is a big controversy on it but i am constantly on here reading and i believe short ram with the airbox is the way to go. Cai is a bad choice if you drive around in the rain or snow. I have heard from more then one person using cai and have had troubles with rain and snow getting into the maf and causing problems. But that is just my .02 cents. Also cattless is a danger zone, If you plan on doing those mods and staying there i recommend a catted dp because when you go cattless you have all of those extra problems with boost creep and everything else and i do not recomend cattless unless your getting an external wastegate and boost controller.

Some weird information in this thread.....


+1 to those saying going stg 2(downpipe and a tune). That will basically put you close if not abit over the 300whp mark. You can get more out of that turbo but will require more extensive mods and or an e-85 tune with mods.

350whp on 93 will be at least a 20g I would think but really I would go with a Dom 1.5xtr to better suit the bill as you have some breathing room if you want more. Your looking at injectors, fuel pump, Downpipe, Intake, 3 Port EBCS, upgraded topmount or a front mount(not sure how good the stock STI tmic is actually), plus any extra's you toss in like Turbo inlet, TGV deletes, BPV/BOV etc etc...then a protune.

Start with the stg 2 and go from there. Enjoy the car.

E85 and bigger pump injectors with stock turbo would be perfect. It will have great spool, and mo power. If you don't care about the Subaru sound, go with equal length headers for even quicker spool. Stock turbo is great for the street and pretty reliable if not pushed too far. But a word of advice, you'll more then likely get use to the power and want more.
