    Just got an Sti

    Hi im kind of new to the whole tuner world and just got my first STI. The guy I bought it off of claimed it had 360whp. The car came with an aftermarket 16 g turbo, race exhaust, front mount intercooler, and a custom dyno tune. When I drove the car it did not feel like it had this amount of power. Would these mods give it around that amount of HP?

    Hard to tell, if it was me, just for piece of mind I would choose a tuner and get that cat to him ASAP.

    I got the car and had it towed back, then decided to drive it even though I shouldnt have due to the turbo seals and radiator, I talked to a subaru mechanic and he said that it could be the o2 sensor being triggered.
