Folks, let's move on. Ronin thinks the FA motors are bad to mod on, that's fine, he can start a new thread if he wants to discuss it. Let's keep the focus on dyno plots.

probably on the top 5 reasons why Subaru engines blow up all of the time, its because of 'kidiots' stating this:

"I heard that this and this" without stating the source or even better:

taking what they 'heard' from a friend's friend's, whose cousin, that worked as a lot attendant at a KIA dealership, who knows a person who used to own a Subaru, that once posted on a forum called 'nabisco', that his car that he doesn't even own anymore, ran amazing with full bolts on and no tune, over actual, factual, and consistent results...

What was your baseline? Those are good numbers. Further confirms that a full TBE isnt a large contributer to power gains.

Ahhh i see. Still, i have seen other results that lead me to beleive it...is it tuned for 299 conservatively or are you balls to the wall with it. Im just curious because those are the numbers i will be shooting for but mine will be a DD and i need it to be on the reliable side.

Mine is a daily. Its ovbiously not a kill map on my daily. The car is super fun daily driving. And the ETS intake blows away the misimoto. Even though the intake is basically just a noisemaker. Not much power it seems from the intake, but the sound is awesome.

This thread is getting ridiculous... should be just dynos and lists of parts and a close discussion to that.... anyways

I have a 2015 CVT and I am interested in tuning... I think I am going to do it at 10k miles as I haven't had a single engine issue and it's been really good... even had 4 auto-x's. I already think that the exhaust drones at some RPM's and don't really care for more noise so I really dont want any aftermarket exhaust. If I did the only option would be the STI/SPT exhaust... but I heard it still is a little drony at higher cruising speeds....

I want to either be totally stock or stock + Intake (Mishimoto most likely)
It seems like Cobb OTS isn't that powerful I think I will either protune or get a "protune" e-mail map and send a few runs back and forth... I know that CVT's will be supported soon on Cobb...

My big question... What PSI's are people running??? I think Cobb OTS is 19psi... What are the protunes and other personalized maps PSI at???

How much of a difference has an intake made on a Stock vs. Stock + Intake it seems like just a bit at the higher end...

Can't wait for Cobb to do CVT tunes...

It's so amazing to see the insane gains with these cars compared to all my previous EJ builds. Ordering my Accesport this week and focusing the rest of the winter on power mods. Can't wait to do turboback, intake, tgv deletes and see where it takes me.

Not really. The EJs make generally the same power, mod for mod. What you're seeing here is the wild variance among dynos. The FA tends to deliver a quicker and stronger initial torque spike and surge, but the EJ has deeper breathing lungs past 5800rpms. In the end, both cars are just as quick as the other, mod for mod.

Eh yes and no to the dyno variances seen here.

Look at the posting I took from Bren's dyno, same dyno.

The FA20F nips at the EJ257's heels. Down only 10hp and 3 lb ft on a stage 1.

If I recall his stage 2 tunes show a similar result. But the EJ gets back a little more torque, not surprising considering its increased displacement. Even with a 10whp/10wtq difference, given the starting point the fa20f makes better power with the same mods than the ej257.

At least with Bren at the computer.

A stage 2 fa20 with the same mods is making a bit more power than a stage 2 ej257. Even cobb said it.


http://blogs.cobbtuning.com/2014/12/...uning_results/

" At this point this car is now making a tad more torque and horsepower than a Stage2+Intake 2015 STI on the very same dyno very impressive for a 2.0L with diminutive factory turbo. We are*slowly beginning to really like these cars now as the uncorking process continues "

Anyone care to speculate why they didn't just call out their TMIC here as being the AVO one?

Is that an AVO? If it is , its because they don't want to advertise for AVO......they want to sell us one of theirs when they are ready?

They make great stuff, so I can wait..
