    X-Large can of Whoopass openned at Turbo XS. New dyno record!

    Well folks. Just got back from Turbo XS. Mark and Phil did an excellent job as usual in tuning my car. After installing my Blitz front mount intercooler the car was running extremely poorly with excessive lean conditions at light throttle. I had not taken it to WOT for fear of damaging something. The difference in what the car was able to do today was nothing short of miraculous. After street tuning the car, it was as smooth as it was stock with much improved drivability. Now on to the good stuff. I set a new record for dyno on pump fuel. 311.5 whp at 19 PSI as measured on the Dynapack. Assuming 20% driveline loss this is approximately 390 HP at the crank. To put this in perpective I am now making slightly more than Crazy Al was on race fuel (with his previous setup). Power is now akin to getting hit in your back with a sledghammer. Just jaw dropping power to the point of being almost too much for many to handle. For the record not one ounce of lag was introduced with the front mount and throttle response is as sharp as before if not better. Needless to say I'm estatic. Wonder what she'll do on race fuel?
    I traced my yellow dyno curve with a pen as it was almost impossible to see. The blue line is a stock WRX for comparison.

    I am sure everyone else is wondering--what are "the trimmings" and how much did the whole setup cost? BTW, when are you going to race it on a strip?

    Jesus Christ God...okay don't take offense to that those that are offended. That's amazing! After I win the WA lottery this Saturday evening, I'll have my WRX trailered to MD. so that Phil can try and squeeze 311.6 out of mine. Of course even if I had the same equipment as you, I would have the advantage with the carbon fiber dash kit (don't hate my dash because its beautiful).

    That's excellent to see such numbers. Congrats and be safe God (is that an oxymoron?).

    Congrats!

    How does 180 HP jump from 3,000 - 5,000 rpm range feel?

    Are you gonna take your car to drag strip anytime soon? Or did you say you're preparing for road racing event in summer? If I was making that much HP and TQ, then I would be scared to take my car to the strip because of the tranny.

    A quick question. What's your injector duty cycle? Aren't you close to maxing out the STi injectors at that level of power? Just curious.

    Well, all I can do is just sit here and wish that I had that much $$$. Keep us updated on your suspension set up too!

    Sheesh...and y'all are impressed by those numbers??





    j/k. Nice work man On pump no less. Very impressive. And I'll have to jump on the pics bandwagon and ask if you have any. Your exhaust sounds nice too, what's the smallest tip they make in that exhaust?

    1820 will have a power curve shifted up by a couple hundred RPM is all. Yes Marcus. I'll take care of the uppipe. I'm just swamped today. I'm at 90% duty cycle at redline. Very safe. I figure with a Maxim Works Exhaust Manifold I'll be at 325 whp maybe more. The Blitz plugs come pregapped at 0.030. I thought it was a decent gap and considering it's a pain to change the plugs I wanted to make sure I wouldn't misfire on the dyno. I might get an extra HP or two if I opened them up a tad but not worth it most likely. I say leave them at their preset gapping. I don't have any pics really but it doesn't llook like anything special. Stock looking wagon. Even stock wheels and suspension right now for winter. Only thing giving it away is the exhaust and the front mount. I don't even have any fog lights.

    thanks for the comments on the gaps. i wouldn't spread them either. the tiny gains wouldn't be worth it. i still want pics though damn it.

    but let me just get this straight. you've got no fogs, stock wheels and suspension. so basically, save the hood scoop, you look like an rs wagon but have approx 390hp at the crank?

    LOL

    you bastard!

    GO to the track TONIGHT! I want to see some times. You should hit LOW 12's at least. (no pressure though).
