Engine/Power Modifications:


Just finished up this 2015 WRX project earlier this week and wanted to share! Car just received a major overhaul that should put a big smile on the owners face. Rocking everything out of the Extreme Turbo Systems catalog pretty much this one is rocking their Precision Turbo & Engine 5858 CEA turbo kit with twin TiAL Sport wastegates, and their massive FMIC kit to match. Also running the ETS "Quiet" catback system to round out the exhaust upgrades. From Mishimoto Automotive we upgraded the radiator, fans, and Oil cooler. Also installed some nice red silicon radiator hoses and their ancillary hose kit for good measure.

To help make sure this build stays reliable we upgraded the shortblock to our "Stage 1" specification using Manley Performance Products, Inc. "TurboTuff" I-beam rods and Platinum series pistons in a 86.1MM bore size. A new OEM crankshaft and King Racing XPG bearings round out the shortblock upgrades. Heads were left stock, primarily because of lack of aftermarket support at the time.

Final tuning performed via the COBB Tuning v3 Accessport this one should be one bad WRX!





UPDATE w/ 2017WRX baseline overlay:

We will have a baseline from a 2017WRX sometime this week. Otherwise previously tuned FA20 WRX all had bolt-ons so we haven't had a bone stock one on the dyno yet.

The 553ft/lbs is from a little jolt from mashing the gas at the beginning of the run. Didn't notice it myself or would have just posted the two final runs that didn't have the little jump at the beginning. So not a "typo", just should have been excluded from the run.

Thanks,
Alex

Full boost at around 4600rpm? Very impressive for that turbo setup on a 2.0 with minimal headwork!

We just baselined the Motion Lab 2017WRX this afternoon at 247WHP and 280WTQ on our dyno. Here is our customer Steve's 2015WRX to our new stock 2017WRX with 245miles on the odometer.



Thanks,
Alex

I haven't really been able to drive it do to having surgery on my clutch leg last week. I did take it to get gas which was about 2 mile round trip. This car is a beast!!! Motion Lab packed so much power into this little motor it's unbelievable. The get up and go from a dead stop is amazing and when it starts to spoil up its sounds like a jet taking off followed by an amazing bov sound from the tial as it surges.

Why did you guys tuned the vehicle for only 430whp with a built block? Was fuel a limitation? You can make 400whp/tq with the stock turbo on E85 and 1.5k rpms sooner. For 91/93 octane is awesome. Don't mean to sound negative, just got questions. Congrats on a really nice build

You can't make a legit 400WHP on the stock turbo.

But, it does seem like a lot of work (and a lot of lag) for what the car is putting down... I guess that's just the new platform. Wonder how it would do against a bolt-on 2.5 WRX?

Car still had stock clutch, while the engine with the I-beams and pistons could take more we didn't want to find the next weakness just yet. Wanted to enjoy the upgrades for a bit first. Car could also benefit from better gas when he decides to push further. Even with a slight drop in compression to 10:1 and the superior direct injection 93OCT isn't the best gas to make big boost and big power with. Some E85 would be a lot of fun with this set-up to go further.

Goal for the project was a fun and reliable 400+WHP car.

The car really feels more responsive than the graph might show with a turbocharger capable of 62lb/min flow. The new engine provides more response than a EJ205 for sure or even AVCS equipped EJ207. Lots of power up top was gained with tuning of the direct injection timing. Look forward to some valve train upgrades to finally come to market to further help the power delivery from the new engine.

Thanks,
Alex

What's the deal with the stock rear diff? Does it not hold power quite as well as it should?

Result looks pretty darn good to me considering 93 fuel. No way u can get anywhere near 400whp from the std turbo on 93 fuel.

Plenty more left in it.

Have not had any failures yet, so not 100% sure on that one.

Yes, there is definitely head room left in the set-up. Would love to funnel some E85 in this thing!

To answer everyone's question yes it does feel like a beast. Almost putting 200 horsepower on top of the stock 15 WRX motor was awesome. I attahed a short video link of what it sounds like from an iPhone cam. I've healed up a little from surgery and driven it around a few times now. When you launch from a light in 1st gear it obviously has the instant traction of the awd and you feel that torque and hp from the graph. Shifting into second and hitting boost it will out do just about any semi modded mustang or Camaro on the road. I haven't tested it but 100mph comes a lot quicker than it used to. The driveline is stock and I do daily drive this...haven't yet but everything seems very reliable. I'm sure before too long I will have to upgrade the clutch. Transmission from my understanding from some people out west with even more than this it holds up. The new 6 speed in these 15+ are greatly improved. E85 while awesome is not really available where I live. I don't feel like going hundreds of miles and trucking jugs of it back so I'll stick with the 93 for a while. Thanks for the interest guys!!

Cheers 🍻https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=n5AylDe8T_E
