    Just picked up my first bugeye!

    Hey guys new to awd but I just picked up a family friends 02 wrx bugeye who owned it for 7 years the whole car has been modded too hell but the turbo was blown when I got it an aps 55lb. I just paid to get a 20g xtr in there 2500$ tuned by precision in nj. Every mid has been done through precision with all paperwork. I'm so excited I get to pick her up In 2 days. Best of all she has Ppg gears 1-4. Precision promising me 425+hp who with this turbo but well see.

    I also heard good things about precision tuning, the things I heard were so great that Ive decided to take my car there to get tuned hopefully this spring. Everyone ive spoken to has said nothing but positive things about them.

    Welcome! A 20g is a massive turbo for the 2.0L. Is this a hybrid build? If not, you're going to have some serious turbo lag.

    Post pics and a full mod list. That's a pretty big jump for someone new to Subarus...

    A 20G-XTR is not a 425 whp turbo. It's a 47 lb/min wheel: Subaru WRX/STi 20G-XT-R Turbocharger

    You're looking at ~350whp after tuning with proper mods.

    Yeah, that's a poor decision for a turbo on a 2.0L. Hope you enjoy turbo lag.

    Welcome to the site though, I'm sure Precision will set you up nice.

    Just picked up my first bugeye!

    Like said above a 20g is all top end...a less laggy and cheaper pairing would have been a vf34, 39 or 43...

    If you're on a stock trans and block I hope you've put some cash away...the 2.0L can take around the 400 mark if you're not concerned about reliability but the trans is only good for about 350whp. It's all in how you drive it but 2nd gear in the 02-03's is often referred to as "glass"...

    What other supporting mods are you running? TMIC upgrade, fuel pump, injectors, up and down pipe, 3" exhaust?

    I hate to be that guy that's anything but encouraging but unless you have a built block and a built 5mt or STI 6mt I fear you've built yourself a time bomb...

    Pretty sure only things not done were cams headers personally I like the unequal length headers do in not going to change them anyhow dyno numbers mean 0 to me thats just what the guy said I bought this car as a second vehicle and just for fun by no means is it my dd.
