    Greetings and welcome to the Club!

    500 HP? Why so much? It is an obtainable goal, but will co$t an awful lot to be done properly.

    welcome!!!

    your plan for 500 is very ambitious and very expensive to be reliable. i hope you dont plan on it being your daily driver.

    :] welcome man STI is one intense machine :]

    a 500hp car will be really hard to drive as a daily driver, and quite annoying XD, if you want i can PM you a tuning guide, its not weary precise yet, but i am working on it ;], its pretty much a sorted collection of wisdoms from this site :]

    07's have timing issues as well as throttle problems and lean spots n the rpm band. I have a rebuilt motor as well. Get a tune asap.
