    Im stuck trying to decide if I should spend my savings on a trip back to england or buy some 18" Axis Halo rims for my red 09!!!!

    Love the car, keep us posted with the mods!

    Update!
    I finally received my Invidia divorced bell mouth catted down pipe. My friend helped me install it yesterday. The turbo response is awesome now. I am using an PERRIN stage 2 map. It is truly amazing how much faster this car is now. Here are some pic's of the DP.
    Here's the DP.

    Here's what it looked like stock.

    Who ever designed the stock DP should be shot. Look how much better the Invidia will flow.

    Here it is installed!

    Those are some beautiful pictures. Where did you take them?

    I can't wait for my tires to wear down so I have an excuse to get a new wheelset with wider tires. They make such a difference.

    I haven't put it on a dyno yet. I might get a VF52. If I do, then I will get a pro-tune.

    htown,
    I have the same mods on my 09. Just a stock OTS cobb map i was putting down 250 whp on a DD dyno. Protuned put me at 270 whp on the dyno dynamics dyno.

    A friend of mine has an 08 with this same set up. He pulled around 200 whp on the Dyno dynamics dyno. Hope that helped.

    yea i think that now that i sealed my leak though that i would probably have pulled around 220. i was amazed at the difference an exhaust leak made, i was only at 12-13psi at the peak of my pull. but i put out 250tq so that made me happy cuz im all about the torque. i test drove a stock 08 yesterday and a stock 09 sti and my car was much, much faster than stock. it was about equal to the sti but the sti didnt pull like my car, no fun!

    wow i was thinking you'll get a lil more than that maaaayyybbeee 290whp (hint the long maybe) so are you resonated on the spt exhaust and with a cat on the dp??? i plan on doing straight pipe, i live in a no emmissions county and plan on investing in some thick dynamat, i may do the resonator maybe, but i know the spt catback is alot like stock

    but i plan on doing a bit bigger injectors, fuel pump, and try in squeeze out the a bit more

    heres a guy running something similiar and pushing higher numbers

    09 WRX HB Speed Dyno 293 whp 305 wtq

    but thanks for the feedback....

    I was tuned on a dyno dynamics dyno, if it was that dyno I would be in the 295 300 range. DD are the heartbreaker dynos. I'm running invidia dp and agency power cbe.
    Oh and on this dyno I'm at 305 ft/ lbs of tq
    Check out this link and you will see the diffence between dynos.

    Dyno Comparison - Dynojet & DynoDynamics (Apples to Apples) - NASIOC
    Also do a google search on Dynomite dyno vs dyno dynamics.

    Sorry to the OP did not mean to hijack, Just trying to provide info.
