    STi Rookie here..PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR INSIGHTS.

    I'm still a rookie on my knowledge of the STi. I was wondering what is the best technique to launch my '06 STi. I don't have any major mods done to it, just a spt exhaust and a greedy bov. Also, what kind of engine mods do any of you recommend to me? i'd like to be around the 350-400hp range. Would a downpipe benefit me? hope to hear from your responses soon! thanks!

    Welcome to the club. Please make sure you explore the stickies at the top of the forums (especially this one).

    I would visit our Drag Forum for some launch tips.

    Not many fans of BOVs here. For info on that click on the red link in my signature.

    Yes a down pipe would benefit you. However, a DP and some engine management will help you much more.

    When you say 350-400hp... I have to assume you are speaking of crank hp and not whp, yes? If you are speaking of chp then a DP and custom tune should get you to a place you will be very happy with. If you are asking for wheel hp then that's another ball game...

    Please take some time to explore the links in my signature.

    Welcome to the club!

    For a nice launch, rev up to 4500ish rpms, then drop the clutch easily. For 400whp, any 50 trim turbo plus meth will get you there. Downpipes and Engine managment are the first two mods usually done to a turbo impreza.
