Mustang dynos are the ones they call heartbreakers I believe lol. That's alright with me though, I'd rather underestimate my cars power when comparing to people than overestimate and get heartbroken looking at their tailights through the traps.

Oh an update, I carfaxed my baby and her short block shows up replaced 20k ago... Time to go back to the dyno and eat what's left on the table

I don't know how stg2 my car is but heres what I got

car: 2005 STI 146,xxx miles... stock block and internals

go fast parts include:
-no name catless dp
-hks high power catback
-16g turbo
-samco turbo inlet
-enjen CAI
-Grimmspeed EBC
-mishimoto radiator

Suspension
ISC N1 coilovers

Thats all i can think of I probably have more I'm forgetting though.

Pro tuned at AMS motorsports at 17psi
328whp/298wtq on a dyno jet ~75-80 degrees that day. (I'm assuming the graph they gave me was whp and not scaled hp at the crank). according to ams, they tuned it down to around 300whp because I was running 98% injector duty cycle.

I'm starting to call BS on that though because I recently started data logging and I saw 106% injector duty cycle at one point

most of the mods were on the car when I bought it except for the tune, turbo inlet, EBC, and coilovers.

if you want I can try and post a picture of my dyno graph they gave me.

Do you know exactly which 16g you're running? Our results are similar yet reversed and now I'm curious

I don't the owner who had it before put the turbo in. unfortunately my guess would be an ebay one based on the way he treated the car. What exactly do you mean reversed? flip flopped hp and torque numbers?

HOW LONG: Stage 2 since about 5K miles

...and my clutch is in great shape - this is my DD & I don't drive like a douchebag (very often).
Hello,

Any way to get a video of your exhaust tone. I was looking into the same DP and Headers and was wondering what it sounded like.

Ditto. Which is the reason I started this post. I wanted to find out how many people could run Stage 2 without experiencing major engine issues. Wear and tear such as clutch replacement is to be expected when adding power which doesn't surprise or bother me that I will have to get that replaced. When researching about the 'ringland issue' these cars have, I found many people saying that the primary way to help prevent the ringlands from failing was to have the car tuned to eliminate the lean effect in higher RPM's. So I decided to take the advice (even though it will probably void my warranty on a '13) and go Stage 2. Glad to hear so many people are holding up on stock blocks though!
One thing I would like to add to everyone in this thread using it as research for going Stage 2 is that you should take everything on here with a grain of salt. There are many different factors that determine how long your engine will last (octane, fuel brand, elevation, climate, driving technique, etc.) so don't think that just because someone only lasted 10k miles on a certain setup does not mean you will have the same results. I am a firm believer that if you treat your car well, it will last. Plain and simple.

^^ I'd even argue that getting a knock free tune and monitoring your car via logging is more important than driving civil. A lot of owners beat the piss out of their cars BUT have good safe tunes and do regular maintenance and monitoring and never have ringland issues.

Exactly that yes. Your numbers are a bit higher but HP and TQ are flipped from mine and we both run 16g and bolt ons. If its an eBay one that might explain it, mine is the Blouch Big 16 EVOIII and I'm max boost around 3700

Ps Speedster get some injectors ASAP! On my tune I don't think I've broken 80% IDC on the 740s

i agree, i also read the whole engine failure thread and some knowledgeable contributors recommend using a thicker oil such as a 10w-40 regardless of what the manual suggests, that accompanied by smart driving will make me feel more confident about my car when going stage 2

Thatskipkid, that would probably be it. I know its a td-04. my next project is a new front bumper cover. I also ordered a fuel filter and will probably order a walbro fuel pump. I'm just avoiding buying things that require a tune. my tuner said though that if i got injectors and a fuel pump I would definitely be able to put down 340 hp. (dynojet).

I just don't want to go back for another pro tune until theres an FP green and a FMIC under my hood

To everyone who posted here so far...

Thank you!

This info is excellent...I'm doing bunches of research while I get the money to go Stage 2 and this is helping enormously

changed my fuel filter yesterday. wow did it make a difference. car runs quite a bit richer and it restored some power.

I suggest to all you GD stage 2 guys changing fuel pumps to also change your fuel filter. there will zero extra work and only cost you an extra 60 bucks.
