You should look into the "H6 upgrade" for the rear.
-Same caliper and pad
-1.1" taller rotor and taller caliper hanger to match

Best part... It can be done very very cheap

That does look easy and cheap. I'd be worried about them fitting under my 15" wheels (slick setup).

Good point. I might have to look into that when I get around to doing the rear brakes.

With the speeds you're hauling down from... It's a no brainer! lol If the pads are still good, I bet you could do it for under $100

I've had various people comming on the stopping power from stock brakes (not just you), so I made a video. I will considering the larger rears once it's time to replace them, though.

Here's an extended cut of my 10.3 @ 139mph pass from Rock Falls last weekend. For anyone concerned that stock brakes aren't enough stopping power check out the video.

It is ~10 seconds from 140-40mph and another ~10 seconds cruising at 40mph before turning to head back. Probably no more than 1/3 to 1/2 braking at any point.

No doubt the stock brakes will stop it. With the larger rear, the bias swings toward the rear some. Which is good since ours are so far forward biased. The idea of a more stable car, again at those speeds, is only added insurance in my eyes. You've made it clear you're all about straight line performance, and part of that is stopping, in a straight line.

I too play some in straight lines, all be it in an 81' Camaro that'll pull the front tires off the ground for 15-20'. ;-) I just prefer my subie on the auto-x as it turns, and the Camaro just doesn't, EVER! lol

Also, keep in mind that the total cost of the project (including the car itself as well as all the mods) is still less than what you'd pay for a new WRX on the dealer lot (let alone a new STI).
not to bring this up agian but... just what kind of "things" are you selling?

Mainly flip keys but I'm not supposed to say that on NASIOC. I also do a pretty good job of selling my old parts whenever I upgrade.

Seems about right for the boost level you are running. What's holding you back from turning up the boost?

Are you going to post the full plot? Can't really see much from the little snippet.

Spark was blowing out above 34psi. I'll get some new plugs in tonight. I'll post a plot later. It breaks up at the top end due to the blow out.

Event: Dyno Tuning
Location: MAPerformance, Cottage Grove, MN
Ambient Temp: 78F (in dyno room)
Elevation: ~1,000ft
Weather: Sunny and Clear Outside
Tires: 255/40R17 Federal 595 RS-R Tires on 17x9" +45 Enkei RPF1 Wheels

Car: 2002 WRX Sedan
Tuner: Nuke @ NF Performance
Dyno Info: Dynojet at MAPerformance
Transmission: 2012 STI 6 Speed
Gear: 4th
Peak HP at RPM: 666 WHP @ 7,300 RPM
Peak Torque at RPM: 523 WTQ @ 6,300 RPM
Baseline hp/tq for a stock on same dyno: ~240WHP Stock STI
Target Boost: 35psi
Target AFR: 11's
Fuel: E85

Yesterday Nuke and I took my car to do some dyno tuning at MAP. Since the last time at the track we switched it to an EBCS to be able to ramp up boost at the top end, and also put in a Boost-A-Pump because it was leaning out with the higher boost levels.

The car ended up making 666 WHP at 35psi, but we were seeing spark plug blow out on anything over 33 or 34psi so the plot breaks up at the higher boost levels. You can see the car spitting flames when it misses in the video. New plugs should be going in tonight.

666 WHP / 523 WTQ







Here is a video of the pull.

What are you running for plug gap? We always have to gap down to around .024 to get over 33-34 psi. That's always about when we see blow out start and a quick gap down on the dyno always clears it right up. .024 on stock iridiums let me go to 42 psi on that 6466 car recently. With .028 it started blowing out at 34.

They're stock heat range Iridium's that I gapped to 0.025". I think we're going to try some fresh Copper's that have been gapped down a little further.

Got a Seibon RS-style (scoopless) CF hood. Threw it on for a few pics before I get it painted.
