Let me preface by saying that I really like my new Suby. I've owned several Subbies before, but never a WRX. This car is literally brand new with less than 350 miles on it. Car was never launched or abused. Kept under 5K until the dyno runs. It has a mix of whatever the dealership put in for gas and 93 octane. I wasted no time to getting this thing to Stage 2.
Here is my setup:
- '14 WRX Hatch
- Protune Open Source
- Invidia Catless Downpipe
- 3 Solenoid boost control
- AEM CAI
Here are some other info:
- 91/93 Octane mix
- 850 feet above sea level
- 40-50 degrees F (located around Milwaukee,WI)
My baseline run gave me a result of 211/235... A bit on the low side. I was a bit disappointed but waited for my tuned numbers to come in.
With a Stg 2, I got 253/280 on a freakin DynoJet. If these were Mustang Dyno numbers I wouldn't be disappointed, but this is the lowest WHP/TQ number I have seen in ANY 3G Stage 2 WRX to date.
I know Dyno charts are just numbers; if I got 280 I would be fine with it. But 253 WHP after Stage 2 on a Dynojet??? And the tuner told me that those were normal. Sounds like a big fat lie. Anyone have any insight? I'm picking up the car tomorrow so I haven't driven the car yet.
My delta HP gain is +42WHP.
My only explanation for the low numbers:
1.Bad Dyno calibration (but these guys seem legit, decent number of clients and pretty good reviews)
2.Engine not broken into yet
3.Not using pure 93 octane gas.
4.My WRX is special (and not in a good way).
