    Need abit of scooby brains...

    Hi guys I have just brought a subaru wrx but it has had a sti engine lump fitted,I would just like to no if the information sounds correct.

    Upgraded parts below
    Upgraded fuel pump 225
    Decat and cat back exhause
    Vf37 turbo
    P1 clutch 5 speed
    Upgraded forge pistons
    The car boosts just over 1.5 bar

    The engine and remap was done by Power engineering

    The outcome after map was
    310 ft torque

    The person I brought the car off said when this was put on the rollers that it was only running 95 fuel and should be running more now as its on 97fuel don't no if this is true be great fuel for a bit more info if any body can help.

    If the car was mapped for 95 fuel then using 97 will only make a limited quantifiable difference on rollers but in theory the safety margin will be better.

    Contact PE direct and see if they've retained info on the car, that's your best bet for reliable history info.

    Also I don't follow the bit "Decat and cat back exhaust" unless you are saying the works down pipe was decatted and an exhaust was fitted aft of that.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially.
