    (More HP wouldn’t be a bad thing... I’m going to be doing constant maintenance.)
    Get ready to spend some serious dough! I'm at a little over 400whp on a fairly conservative mustang dyno that reads about 230whp stock. 410whp is probably in the range of 500hp at the crank. Spent about 15k on complete motor build this summer not including brakes and suspension. To give you some idea of what it takes to make/handle 400+whp somewhat safely....
    06 sti
    aquamist meth injection
    fmic sprayer

    built bottom end(vigilant motorsports "track series" block)-modified crank for better oiling, pauter rods, coated cp pistons, race bearings, arp head studs
    heads cleaned, rebuilt
    killer b oil pan baffle and oil pick up
    11mm oil pump
    new timing belt and pulleys
    power steering pump
    perrin lightweight pulley
    killer b el header coated by swaintech
    turbosmart bpv
    perrin silicon turbo inlet
    cobb catted dp
    borla hush cat back
    blouch dom3 turbo
    perrin stealth fmic
    completely upgraded fuel system with dw 300 fuel pump, 850cc injectors, perrin fuel rails
    complete cooling system upgrade with mishimoto radiator and hoses
    mishimoto ancillary hose kit
    tomie poncams
    tgv deletes
    kstech 3" cold air intake
    perrin catch can
    perrin alternator cover
    mishimoto radiator shroud
    Much more that im forgetting...

    Suspension
    feal struts
    rce black springs
    perrin swaybars and endlinks

    rear diff bushings
    shifter bushings
    group n engine and trans mounts, pitch stop
    act clutch and new flywheel

    brakes
    dba slotted rotors
    stoptech pads
    goodrich ss brake lines
    perrin master cylinder brace
    stock bbs wheels powder coated gloss black

    2 perrin wing stiffies
    rally armor mud flaps
    hella supertones
    twm weighted brushed sphere shift knob

    defi gauges-oil temp, oil pressure, coolant temp, garrett boost gauge, aquamist meth gauge, aem afr gauge

    all i can think of right now but theirs probably more 410whp, 390ish wtq

    230whp isn't "conservative" for a stock tune reading

    I've seen threads with people reading around 240whp stock so I figured "fairly conservative" was pretty accurate

    This. That's a standard output for a stock STi.

    The only reason a baseline matters is so you can determine the delta. Picking up 50whp on Robins dyno is more impressive than picking up 50whp on yours.
