    2015 WRX winter project

    I currently work at a Subaru dealership, and picked up a 2015 WRX base. I have wanted one for over 7 years now, so needless to say I'm a very happy individual.

    I have seen many and read about many modifications. I am looking to only do performance modifications (deletes, tune, exhaust, stage kit, etc.) My goal is to be at 400WHP or higher.

    Has anyone done a full block upgrade and a stage 2+ kit? Is a block upgrade needed to get over 400whp?

    Right now I'm looking to do an ETS 2015 Subaru WRX Turbo Kit. Does anyone know where that should get me to horsepower wise, and is it safe to get over 400WHP without a bigger block?


    BTW, I am new to the forum, and this is my first post. I hope to continue to gain knowledge from all of the Subaru experts here!!!

    Check out this older thread for a bit of info on 400+hp builds first.

    You'll want a built bottom end for re-liabilities sake although i've see a few push more power on a stock block without a problem thus far but ymmv... IAG makes one pre-assembled. The ETS kit will get you to 400 on pump safely and you can really push the envelope from there with alternate fueling.

    Also there is someone on YouTube who has done this. You can find the video by typing in ETS Turbo 2015 WRX. I can't link the vid now on this comp.

    YES! I really liked the ETS turbo vid I saw on youtube. I looked at what all was done to that, and it was basically the ETS turbo kit plus a long block and some other stuff internally.
