    Since you're seeking dyno numbers, which dyno is your car going to be on?

    That level of numbers will take stage2 + a mild turbo upgrade. The turbo you get is up to you.

    Assuming you're prepared for lag, that sounds okay. I'd definitely consider something like a processwest TMIC or an FMIC at that point, but it's up to you. Obviously an unrestrictive exhaust plus a tune, and you'll need injectors, but your tuner will go over that with you.

    Both the VF39 and the 18G OTS Cobb tunes are worth "about" 290whp. The VF39 is "nearly" maxxed out, while the 18g has the potential for much more, but is limited by the stock injectors.

    With a professional Dynotune, you might be able to squeeze out another 15whp on the stock injectors... but that is about it.

    an TD05 18g will get you where you want to be, and have minimal lag, with an injector/fuel pump upgrade. Your stock injectors are 555cc, so this is just an "estimate", but I would say a set of 650cc injectors should get you there.

    Of course, don't forget all the supporting mods as Cobb prescribes.
