    how bad?

    my friend bought an evo8 with everything! i think its an 05? but either way it has a turboback, some type of chip, intake, bov (heard thats like 400 hp right there) and possibly a tune.

    when im all said and done w. my 06 wrx it'll be stage 2 full turboback, chip, intake at 93 octane..oh and possibly a protune

    will i have a chance?

    Eh, hell probably punt you in the pp. Though if he doesn't have cams and has so/so tune you may have a shot.

    That's just because they don't consider changing out piston rings standard maintenance.

    First off vw's do chips. We and evo's do flashes for the most part, not chips. If it's an Evo 9 it's not making 400 hp with bolt ons and a tune. More realistically 350. The evo 8's with the same bolt ons would make 300.

    I guess this may depend on what your interpretation of bolt on is as well as the dyno, but seeing 350 - 400 for VIII's or IX's isn't unusual. I consider cams bolt on for the evo, and my previous Evo made 342 on a Dyno Jet on 93 pump with bolt ons(cams as well).

    I don't consider cams bolt ons. Bolt on to me is easy stuff you don't have to open up the engine to do. ie, intake, exhaust, tune.

    Tuning is everything, especially on a FI car. That's why it's so impressive.

    What's not impressive is the glass transmission that also comes stock with Evos.
