    I took my car to a tune workshop which is called Pulse Racing and let them do the custome tune with all the parts added, he dyno-ed it and stock had 140kw at the wheels and now 210kw at the wheels after mods. I have the factory sti front tower brace, sti front support kit and rear lateral kit, whiteline H-brace, anti-lift kit, postive shift kit, positive steering kit front and back sway bars can't think of anything else so far lollll

    I don't think I've run into anyone yet running ECUtek on a 3rd gen.
    The workshop recommended with the mods being done to upgrade the fuel pump so it doesn't run lean

    I'm trying to convert 210 kw to ft-lbs and I think that's about 280 or so? How much HP did it put down? Do you have a graph you can post to show what the curves look like?

    And with that setup, a fuel pump sounds like a good idea, though normally if you're doing a fuel pump, you should be doing the injectors too. It doesn't do any good to run a bigger fuel pump if the injectors can't handle it. I'm wondering how close your stock injectors are to being maxed out, or if they are already. You could easily be running lean with the stock ones and the bigger fuel pump will do zero good if the injectors are too small.

    I don't know zax but i just got the workshop to supply and fit the whiteline coz it was best bang for buck.. I have the Perrin radiator shroud and the stubby antenna but thats all im sure its probably better than whiteline

    Mate it put down 281hp and the owner of the workshop said its the safest and maximum the car and go without changing internals so i trust him i guess and if anything happens he will warrant the job

    It sounds like he knows what he's talking about since that is about the most you want to do on stock internals. You can certainly go higher, but it really starts to compromise the durability/reliability of the motor. Do you have the warranty in writing?

    Where down under are you located? Any pics of the car?

    He does and he has the reputation of his workshop to uphold if anything goes wrong and they are weary coz they can be bagged out on forums and all and loose customers but every one that has been to them have been very happy. Sydney

    In my opinion i highly recommend changing the suspension coz they are good factory but are still like a boat when taken and driven spiritedly.

    Thanks for trying. Unfortunately I can't read the numbers along the sides, but those do look like some nice smooth curves with a good amount of area under them.

    Any plans to change the springs and struts down the line? I know you said this was about it for now.....
