Cattless TXS turbo back
Typhoon short ram ( my choice pre Dom )
Agency power coated header and up pipe ( we are getting these in next week )
TGV deletes
Turbo coatings blankets and lots of DEI

We felt on the first tune that the stock manifold/up pipe was really limiting torque, so we ordered the Agency power setup with upPipe.

I am pretty sure that will complete the bolt ons.

Right now it spools like a stage 2 and puts down 375wtq and 365whp on pump 92 oct.

The thought is that we will break 400wtq with the new header and upPipe and probably end up with 380whp on the MPS dyno.

The 2.6 is super responsive around town but it doesn't make much sense to rev it's nuts out.

Shift like a stage 2...

Having owned a FMIC 2005 STI with a FP 20g TDO6h 7cm and now this setup in a 2007STI. I can say that this is more powerful and more responsive.

350-360whp with good fast spool seems to be where I am happiest. I drive around under 5k 99% of the time so I like my power there.

That being said I can't compete with the big turbo boys. Thats ok though, I can make em work for it...
Despite the fact that it seems an unpopular route I will update my stroker 2.6 experience.

The header did not make that much of a difference at my power levels.

We left off around 380 wtq and have decided to swap out the 20gxtr for a Dom1.5xtr.

My hope is that we end up at around 380whp and 380 wtq on MPS's dyno jet.

To put things in perspective I dyno'd on that same dyno at 326 hp and 368 lb ft with my pro tuned stage 2 setup.

That setup was:
Cat less TBE 3"
K&N typhoon SRI
U/R under drive pulley set.
Cobb Access port V2

I have now added bit of displacement, a bigger turbo an hard inlet phenoletic spacers a header and upPipe combo and some big injectors, and obviously the new turbo.

The power is pretty good and I still like the stroker. I am on the fence though as tonic I like the header/ upPipe or not
