Here is a 2004 WRX we had on the dyno yesterday. Bought new off the lot and now still rocking with 115,000mi on the clock. Nothing too crazy under the hood but it puts down some solid power for a total stock ej205 with that milage and stock 2004 5-speed. He had Todd tune the car about 5years ago on a UTEC. Back then the UTEC was the latest and the greatest in the Subaru tuning world. That's a funny thought these days with everyone from ECUTek to AEM supporting our cars, haha. The results were not quite as impressive the first go round back in the day. Now with the same set-up we jumped 50tq/30hp thanks to being able to utilize the newer tuning solutions and get the piggy-back out of the picture.

Nothing too out of the ordinary here, basic intake/exhaust with a mild turbo upgrade. Hes loved the car and kept it very clean over the years and WAS considering selling it.... Now he has the GrpN transmission mount and whiteline crossmember bushings on the way, haha. We were able to infuse some new life into this WRX which always make us feel good inside

23psi on a 115k mile motor on pump gas? Is he planning on rebuilding his engine soon?

Ed,

No.... and I dont even understand the question? I guess the power seemed correct for the turbo/mods so you cant question my dyno calibration. I dont understand why you seem to follow us around on proven power bragging? Posting in our thread proves nothing.... maybe you should go tune a car, just a suggestion. Or do you not have anything else to do other than post on the forums? Just trying to get a feel for you Ed since you seem to have taken an interest in us... I suppose if the car was on the jagged edge of timing and and running a 12:1 AFR I would be pretty concerned.




Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

To bring it back on topic, this is a great set-up for a 2L daily driver for those considering one of the larger IHI turbos. Gets you over the 300whp mark and hits hard. Feels quick on the street and moves you through traffic effortlessly. He has all the right supporting mods for the tune we did, and couldn't be happier with the car. Surprised he held on to the UTEC so long. It had some odd cold start characteristics, nothing too crazy, but we picked up significant power over the previous tune. The power was also smoother. Overall a very well kept 2004WRX that has a lot of highway miles thrown into that 115k on the clock.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Thanks! We appreciate it. The customer made a video if you or anyone else would like to check it out. Love how the EWG sounds!

Anyone know how to embed the video in the post? haha.

Alex,

I'm sorry if that came off as an attack. I was just wondering how long he was planning on the stock engine running. 23psi is pretty damn aggressive for a 115k mile 2.0l even if timing is kept mild.

Also, any idea why power is dropping off so hard up top? I'm not used to seeing a 60whp drop from peak to redline on this kind of setup.

BTW, no need to attack me there. I tune cars every day and I'm generally too busy for my own good. But when I have a valid question about something I see posted, I take the minute out of my day to ask.

Thanks
-- Ed

Maybe I'm getting misty eyed here, but your post brings to mind the heady days of the early to mid 2000s when we all thought that 300 was the ragged edge of the 2.0L WRX motor. I have over 175,000 on my motor and currently put down 333HP on TurboXS's Dynapak at 24PSI and the closest thing I've had to a motor issue is having to have the valve cover gaskets replaces two months back. Amazing what we have all learned about engine management systems, tuning, maintenance, and mindset over the last few years and this car is a perfect example!

You maxed them because you have a 207 that is much more needy.

What's the deal on the redline over 7k? I've been considering that for my own car when I get a turbo to live up there on the stock 205, but I don't want it to hurt anything catastrophically!

24 PSI?!!?!?! NO WAY!! Haha. As with every tune we take into consideration what the car is actually used for to provide the best and most reliable results.

Honestly not sure of the injectors on this car. I dont believe IDC was ever an issue during tuning though.

What do you mean? The dyno could have been off a few hundred RPM. It wasn't making power up top so I doubt Todd would have stayed in it too much longer than he had to.

You should see it when my 16gXTR overboosts during the cold weather.

Unabomber,

I just don't understand how all your rods are still in your block at such absolutely ridiculous levels . Are you running the 16g on the car you were talking about with 180k? I am about to bolt that turbo onto a bugeye in the next few weeks with 142k on the clock. That'd be the highest milage drag race ever I think

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

I had 170k miles on a factory 205 with a EFR 7064 pushing 365whp (airboy), 30 psi. Still running fine today, just not mine anymore. 205's will take way more abuse that folks think. E85 certainly helps...

That must have been a little hurt if it was only making 365 at 30psi

Ah ok makes sense. And not sure what your asking but yes the 207 will rev to 8k that's about where my rev limiters at. Usually shift around 7500

Nice. Maybe I'll upgrade my injectors and intercooler and push the vf30 a little more. If it goes then ill already have the injectors and cooler For a big stock location turbo

Haha price is the issue. But I'll prob do it. Fmic,injectors,big maf intake. My car makes good power on my setup 310/288 on efi's mustang dyno. But after seeing this I'd say I can get more out of it with a better setup and more boost.

lol @ 23 psi blowing an engine. i know a guy that went rotated gt35r on 35 lbs. with a factory 205. the head would lift off of the block and spew coolant everywhere needless to say his engine blew up, but even that thing lasted for a few months of just straight abuse. these engines can handle a hell of a lot more than people give them credit for.

Nice numbers, fellas. Next thing this car will need is most definitely a clutch.
