    Cant seem to find this on search...

    New WRX owner here, was wondering if ya'll could tell me around what RPM the turbo begins to start boosting.. Based on driving it (for only 1 week now) i would imagine its about 3500, but that seems a little high seeing as my previous car (GTI 1.8T) used to boost at around 2000, but i guess i have to remember it was a much smaller turbo running on a 1.8L engine rather than a 2.5L. So , 3500 for boost, confirm/deny? Thanks in advance, im trying to save on gas mileage here.

    Boost is relative.........and also the 06 seems to take longer to see full boost. I dont have a guage on mine but I'd say around 3k your probaly right around full boost......but it falls pretty good on top end.
    0-60 faster then your first sexual experience.

    the cars powerband falls on it's face on the top end.....when your rolling and nail the gas it isnt bad...but if you do a sprint up to 80 you can feel the top of each gear start to struggle......

    A larger turbo is really the only way to make the car not fall on it's face...sure you could run stage 2 which will add boost in the gears all together...but the stock td04 isnt a great top end turbo.....it does have good spool charticstics...it's a trade off loose some spool time for some top end.
