    Cool Good Tune?

    I just got my 02 wrx tuned and im pushing 250whp and about the same for torque. Im pushing about 15psi of boost. I have a full catback exhaust with header and a short ram AEM intake. They said its a stage 2. Is this a good tune? This is my first wrx.

    it's hard to say. What dyno was it dynoed on? I had my Stage 2 dynoed on a Mustang which is supposed to be one of the more lower reading dynos and it dynoed at 202hp/207tq @ 16psi. Even then, numbers arent that consistent even on the same dyno. Depends on how they are calibrated and stuff. My car may dyno 10hp more or less on another Mustang. Just kinda hard to tell. However, 250whp does sound kinda high for only running 15psi. Like I said, I'm running 16psi and that is a somewhat conservative tune.

    stage 2 = turboback exhaust.

    stage 1 = catback exhaust with a tune.

    not knowing their terminology = me questioning their ability to properly tune a wrx.

    even then, 250 is high for a 2.0l. my stage 2 06 dynoed at 241... the 02-04's should dyno about 220. as stated above it does depend on the dyno though.
