    how much horsepower does an 05 wrx wagon make?

    I am pretty positive that my car is all stock. However, I have no clue for sure if it is all stock - I bought it from a dealership and they did not give me too much background on what the owner did to it or did not do to it. Not too many people have Subaru's around where I live! How can I tell what is stock and what isn't and if there is anything done to it! Any help would be appreciated! Thank You!

    You could start by posting a picture of the engine bay, the senior members here will be able to tell a few things from that.

    Stock output is 227 HP on an engine brake.

    Post pictures of the motor and if you can get a good angle on the front underside, the exhaust.

    When the car was brand new, your car had 227hp AT THE CRANK (meaning the engine by itself generates that much hp). Dyno readings vary widely, but a good rule of thumb is a 20-25% drivetrain loss to the wheels in our cars, so usually only about 170 hp actually makes it onto the road.

    Of course, all of this varies by temperature, pressure, engine age, etc.

    Wow, that thing actually looks bone stock to me. The DP and everything else I can see in the engine bay are stock. Nice pick up!

    Agreed on the stock.

    That axelback portion is stock for the blobeyes. They were similar or near the same as the STI exhausts that year and after. 05 seats started looking more like the racing seats (as an option or with a different package option)
