2004 WRX STi


The first run was immediately when I arrived at the shop after a 3 hour highway drive so it was plenty hot. I wanted to see exactly what it was putting down for power after a long drive and heavy use. They said a stock STi puts down about 275whp. So about 10% loss on the dyno sounds about right.

It's now tuned to hit a peak of 16.5 lbs of boost. IDC around 85% and slightly rich AFR. Conservatively tuned I was told and that's what I wanted. For the short time I drove it (began to leak oil from a cracked PCV line), it was surprisingly quick. If converted to bhp it's probably around 260hp/330tq (on the dyno it had water sprayed on the radiator and intercooler and an open downpipe, so likely less power on the street). Probably not quite as quick as a modern WRX but close enough. Now, I just need it to be reliable and not explode/leak
