Those numbers really remind me of P&L started selling/tuning VF48's and they were making north of 320whp and touting it as good as an 18G.

As someone who has a VF48 (which is the same as a VF52 but for the flange), and having injectors, intake, full TBE, a FMIC..... My car doesn't make 18G power and I can tell you that being tuned on 93 octane, as I am tuned, +320whp ain't happening. Its a fun ride, but +320 is a bit much to expect from the tiny but capable vf48/52. And 300whp at redline...... No way! What is this, a 68hta?

Ah hell, we're all on the same Subie fan club at the end of the day! Ciao!
