Default can the accessport handle this?!

i am at a base cobb stage 2: dp and catback...

but in the nex few months i plan to add a lot more "bolt ons" b4 i get a pro tune

my question is...how powerful is the AP's protune...would it b able to reap all the benifits of my bolt ons? or are its capabilities limited to some extent?

i plan to add the following to my stage 2 setup:
tell me if these mods would b worhtless even after a tune

short ram intake
turbo inlet tube
light weight pulley
grounding kit
aftermarket headers
port and polish

ebay TMIC (already on)
gutted up pipe (already on)

my plans are to reach the full potential on a stock turbo
is 250 at the wheels wishful thinking? or a reasonable goal for my future setup?

thanx guys...

Yeah a protune for those upgrades would be well worth it. The tuner can change all kinds of variables to make all your bolt ons work the best that they can together. Go get you one, you want be disappointed.

the pulley and grounding kit will have no effect on your tuning.

250 whp is a bit high. You may be able to make it with a rather unsafe tune but I would guess closer to 240 range maybe 245. I would love to see you make 250 though.

Is the WRX stock exhaust manifold the same as the STI? If it is there has been a lot of discussion of a good port and polish and how it may work as good or better than an aftermarket header.

i recently switched from a ported stock wrx manifold to an alphawerks(gp moto style) header before i added an ap. with the stock ecu it did take longer to spool with the header but the power below full boost still felt the same. from 3500 to 6000rpm there was a large, very noticable gain in power. now with the ap (stg 2 91oct) it spools much better, as would be expected. i think if your goal is 250whp youd be better off switching to a header rather than messing with the stock manifold. plus, the header took 15lbs off the front end of the car.

Want to scan that dyno plot?

I'd like to see the power curve.

You should post it up in your normal thread on agile.

And I would still like to understand how those colder plugs are running. I always hear you shouldn't run colder plugs unless you've added about 100 hp. But you do have some high torque numbers and have the 2.5 so... I'm just curious. I thought about going a step colder but when I do a search people say don't do it.
