    Fixed.

    How about we do this? Your car and my car. Same dyno. If you put down more than me, I'll give you my damn car.

    It doesn't seem like he's bragging to me. Let him be happy with his outrageous dyno numbers!

Problem with my car though is that the test group (the one with 2 cats) was not actually found on the site, so the tech didn't know what to do... he ended up passing it because the cats had the proper exec. order (193-89) for the only test groups that WERE listed. I still had to put my stock exh manifold back on because my headers weren't approved (anyMORE - but that's another story).

    I'll stop hijacking this thread now and maybe we can continue via PM if necessary? I was just wondering if this was a no-hassle upgrade that wouldn't require me to swap parts back to stock (and thus another tune?) before smogging it in a few years. Just a lot of hassle and cost after 5 years, and legality is certainly questionable.
    Understood completely. The setup here in komifornia is the suckage to say the least. I will however be modding my Subie how I want to. I don't mind swapping the cats on and off as it is very easy to do when you have access to lifts and tools In terms of the tune, Cobb AP allows for quick marriage and divorce from what I understand. When I had my Z, I had a company in Austarlia design a quick disconnect for my GReddy E-Manage Ultimate so that come smog time, it was two screws, the thing disconnected and the stock wiring harness was plugged back it. It's the little things like that which makes modding in Cali easier.

    To many tuners giving out too many inflated unrealistic numbers. I was on another site guy was saying how he is making 320whp345wtq on a 2008 with an intake and turboback exhaust. If a tuner is willing to throw crazy numbers at you, can you really trust him to throw a safe tune at you?

    True. I'll tone it down. ....But it is his fault for believing it, to the point of even standing behind and defending such numbers to those who know better. 17.5psi on a VF52 gives you 333whp?! Yes!! LMAO

    Agreed. And those green lines should be a red flag, yeah? I would have raised eyebrows as soon as the tuner said that he's never seen a stock WRX with those readings.

    Ahhh yes I guess it makes more sense (except the numbers) being as one drives the car to the tuner with new parts installed.

    I can't tell you why those numbers are what they are- I'm not a tuner, I'm just a guy with a 2012 WRX that wanted the ECU to play nice with the mods I had added for me.

    I too was surprised at those numbers, and I was personally expecting much lower. I would certainly be interested in a "second opinion" dyno run... Maybe in the summer- I'm thinking of heading down the coast for a (work related) road trip and I'll be passing through Maryland. I'll PM you here in the forums when I get dates (regardless of the results, you keep your car and I'll keep mine).

    btw, the first run (green line) wasn't all stock- just stock ECU mapping. The Invidia exhaust, AEM intake and DeatschWerks DW65C fuel pump were installed the day before the tune.

    Yes-- you found my car. Like I said, the parts were installed the day before the tune- Had to get them installed on Friday then head to the dyno on Saturday. Was tough keeping myself from going into boost on the highway at 1am for the ride home... The drive to the dyno was all sub-45mph backroads so it wasn't a problem.

    What if those are crank numbers? That would make sense... Maybe the dyno was inflating for that? (Or is that exactly what SAE vs STD numbers are?)

    I dunno - I don't even have my car yet.
