Thanks, T0rque...it's no STI though. ;-)
Process West TMIC and Grimmspeed EBCS installed. Protuned yesterday by Hill at Agile. See post #1...
Very nice car all-around. Well done! Two things:
What octane were you running for that dyno? 91 or 93?
And I see a Cobb intake box in a pic but not listed in your mod list. But that pic doesn't have the bov...was just wondering if you ditched the intake or just overlooked listing it in the first post.

Good catch; added Cobb SFI.
As for the BOV, there's a story behind all that. After I installed the PW TMIC, the Turbosmart BOV was too tall and prevented the hood from closing. I therefore had to temporarily put the stocker back on after the protune was done....just until my Forge one comes in. Speaking of, anyone want to buy an almost new Turbosmart Dual Port BOV? I'll be posting it FS later this week or next.

We talked about that valley in there. Hill wants me to do some full throttle data logging in 3rd after my new BOV is installed. Then we'll revisit that little dip. I will ask for a copy of the boost plot and post that up, too.
Considering my mods and tune, does the graph look good to you otherwise? Due to the poor quality of my work scanner, you can't really see the "before" lines. I made some pretty substantial gains in both by taking the boost up to 20.5 - 38 hp (peak), don't remember the tq gains off the top of my head.

How does the car feel now? I would like to hear your honest thoughts before I go the same route. After e-mailing Hill I was told to use the Forge Motorsports blow off valve with the Process West tmic. That must be the reasoning behind it. Also said to stay with the stock intake. Did you discuss anything on that topic with him?

Every dyno reads differently. I'm not that familiar with Agile's dyno (other than the fact it's a Dynapack), so I'm not sure how to interpret the #s. Without a before/after comparison, it's also difficult to interpret (area under the curve difference). That said, ~40whp peak gains seems about on par with StageII+Intake/TMIC.Originally Posted by lokey
The only thing I don't like about the plot is the dip I mentioned, but it sounds like it will be addressed at a later date.
Your right, it isnt an STi.. But I wasnt bashing on WRXs. Anyway, its a clean car and you have chosen some nice mods for sure.
