Keep in mind that the WRX/STI is known as a "tuner" car, and should have been engineered to support an certain increase in stock HP/torque (like other performance vehicles i.e. Mustang, Evo, etc.), and should definitely NOT be breaking ring lands with a safe OTS Stage 1 tune.
The "tuning" aspect is a major reason why I bought my STI...if my car couldn't be tuned safely, I wouldn't have bought it, and I would have kept my Evo.
i got news for ya pal....it is WAY easier and a metric boatload cheaper to get an evo...ANY evo to run 11's(and 10's, too
) than any subaru sold here....and on the stock turbo, too
now i dont know what you been smokin....but it must be bath salts....but ya woulda been far better off with the evo
