    I don't know why people continue to ask this question. It's the same answer for "how much HP will I make?" Go find out.......
    You didn't include your elevation,any specifics about your tune or max boost,octane and lastly the driver is going to make a big difference. Go to track,run car,get slip,post results................

    i'm gonna say doubt it.
    '07 wrx wagon:
    Cobb catback, cobb short ram with intake box, turbosmart small recirc valve, yellow tinted fogs.

    little bit older and a little bit more jaded.

    I'm gonna go with no. You will be low 13s.

    It took going Stage 2 in my STI to hit 12.73 (I was at 276whp according to the baseline OTS Stage 2 dyno before my protune). A stock 04-07 STI can barely hit 12.9x with impeccable launch and impeccable shifting.

    Stop forum racing and just go hit up a track. Goodluck

    I think the guy might just be looking for a "benchmark" for which to aim when he DOES go to the track. So while I don't know for certain that he's not playing bench racer with the numbers, you don't know he is. Know what I mean?
    One day I'll have a truly awesome sig

    Very valid point and much agreed.

    I do think the biggest factor is the tune and what the boost is set at, especially considering an EWG. He can set boost rather high with that.

    I'm honestly guessing a 13.2 or 13.3 before that turbo just runs out of breath...but if he makes it into the 12s, and great for him.

    OP...go make a run! I wanna see some slips!!!
