Accessport sits steady at 11.1 at WOT, I did change my fuel pump to a DW 65C maybe it feeds my stockers better?? I have no Idea what my target is... I'll check it out the next time i got for a spin.

I am glad to see this, I was thinking about starting a similar thread since I have all my parts to go stage to but reading all those engine failure thread are starting to give the cold feet.

I should probably just stop reading and do it...

Unless you have a wideband o2 then you have no way of knowing your wot AFR.

What do you mean by this? Are you implying that because you are pro-tuned you aren't considered Stage 2 anymore?

I think you are well above 310awhp actual numbers, unless you want 310awhp on the stang dyno.

Yea well the tuner started by saying "tuning subarus are difficult for me". So I was skeptical but what's done is done. 10 hard pulls was a little much I thought and that's why I think the motor popped. Very disappointing day.
