Finally set up an account after visiting this site countless times for info. It's always been a great resource and seems like a good community.
Anyways, I've got a 2002 WRX that's just cobb stage 1 right now and it's time for more power. My last car was pushing around 300hp all motor so I'm getting bored with 255 haha. Here's what my plan is and any input you have is greatly appreciate. I'm open to constructive criticism
cobb cat back
I'm trying to avoid the generic stock turbo with turboback and a tune. I just want that little bit more.
I'd be taking the car to the pudget sound to get a cobb dynotune. The thing is, I'm aware of people breaking trannies left and right. Taking that into consideration, I'd like to be right around 260whp and I've read that the vf34 should easily be capable of that. Guess the question really at hand here is, are the supporting mods for the turbo I listed above going to be sufficient? and will the stock fuel pump be able to keep up? I've heard the vf34 is going to provide a much quicker spool then the stock turbo and will be able to provide a few extra lbs of boost without a problem. plus it won't need any extra fabrication to install. correct me if i'm wrong. So in short, I want to install the parts listed above, roll into a dyno, and get a tune. Is 260WHP plausible? Or would anybody advise against that number with the 5spd.
I'm new to the turbo scene so I hope I at least kind of know what I'm talking about haha. Go easy on me
