    Turbo question

    Ok so, just had my car looked over at the dealership said looks pretty good, ripped cv boot going to fix that pretty soon. Anyways I am considering a Blouch 16g, would like to get just over 300whp. Will this turbo make that, and if so at what hp do you need to start building up the internals on the 2.0s? Oh yea i Have and 02 wrx, turboback, streetlight flywheel, and uppipe, on her currently still need a tune going to do that soon.

    Well I guess the dynos can be vastly different. Doesnt have to be exactly 300whp just in that area is what im shooting for. I still havent decided where to get my car tuned, still asking around to see whos good.

    Im just trying to get some info from anyone that may have upped to a 16g or 16gxt on an older wrx. This is my daily driver so just wanting to get some feed back on if this is a viable upgrade, as far as reliablity with stock engine and tranny. Im sure id have to beef up the fuel system a bit.

    That's getting to the point where reliability becomes questionable.

    Get a tune for the car. StageII may be sufficient.

    16g would be sufficient in that it would get you close to or over 300whp just depends on what dyno.

    If you want reliability stock motor should hold up fine to 300whp its the transmission that is of question. Although when you start making more power than stock reliability is generally out of the question. Stage two might be sufficient enough for your needs with a good tune.

    Get a tune for stage two and see if you still want to make more power you may want to stop there.

    Just remember if you upgrade the turbo you will need to get supporting mods.
