just wait for him to get an exhaust and reflash, you'll need an aftermarket turbo at that point to keep up with him.
oh well i'm sure it'll fall apart quickly!
one of the local ex subaru guys just ran an 11.4 out in vegas on a reflashed IX with a downpipe/testpipe, drop in intake, tune & exhaust cam.
Time for a turbo upgrage. Hopefully with a 8CM 20G or FPGreen, or if i decide to spend the money and go rotated a 30r, i can keep up with how easily moddible they are.
yep once you get into the aftermarket turbo arena you can keep up a lot easier.
witnessed a race last night
2006 STI(roommate's car)
TBE no cats
helper spring on wastegate
2005 evo8(friend's car)
vishnu dyno tune
twin plate clutch
the evo was faster. the whole time it slowly pulled away from the STI. at the 1/4 mile the evo would probably be less than 2 car lengths
the 2005 evo8's have the same 10.5 hotside as the 9's which makes for improved top end over 02-03 evo's. but the 9's are better still because of a redesigned compressor wheel and the mivec. general concenses is that a evo9 has the performance of a evo8 with cams
a friend of mine has this
ported and coated manifold
high flow cat
base reflash(we are going to dyno tune it in a few weeks)
lower intercooler pipe
BR deluxe FMIC
this car hauls ass. its faster than both the evo8 and 06 sti i mentioned above. but when we dynotune it we expect it to be a lot faster than the other two cars.
i know several people through a local meet that have evo9's. TBE and custom tune they regularly put down 330+whp, some as high as 350whp. sti's with the same mods are maxed out at ~300whp. aside from that the topend of all evo's is better than that of any sti with the stock turbo.

Evos definately have the tuning advantage. I believe the package is a TBE, MBC and a flash (maybe an intake too, I can't remember) will net you 330 AWHP for just $1300. Not too shabby. It would take cams, like said before, for an VIII to get to that number.
I will probably do this by next spring and stop modding there. My knee can't take a heavy clutch right now so no more power for me.
That's the Buschur/Warrtalon package: MBC, TBE, Autometer Boost Gauge, and a reflash. Claimed 330 awhp for $1270 shipped.
I'm going to do something like this myself when the car comes out of storage this spring. However, since I only live about 3 hours from Buschur, I'm going to have them do a custom tune. Plus, I'll have a few extra mods on by that point (bonus of having Christmas and my birthday before the car comes out), such as a Buschur LICP and Walboro 255 fuel pump, as well as some misc. stuff that won't affect power such as shifter bushings, stainless steel brake and clutch lines, etc.
That should be it for '07. The following year I'll be looking at cams and most likely an upgraded clutch just to be on the safe side, as well as perhaps a new wheel and tire package (if I can find one I like that weighs the same or less than the stock BBS rims).
The following year will be the upgraded turbo and perhaps a new suspension also.
