    Either one is good. Trek accross the state and hit up RT Tuning...or even head up into Connecticut an hour and a half to EFI.

    Mike Botti @ EFI, he tuned mine. One of the most power Stage 2 WRX's recorded on that Dyno 306 WHP 325 TQ, stock internal's, turbo, injectors, running on 93 pump.

    Nice! im actually going to get it tuned by ECS performance in CT.. but i was recommended a compression and boost leak test before doing so. Subaru of course inflates their prices just like any other dealer does. so i was looking for someone reliable (a good tuning shop) to have that done. i have my uppipe already purchased... just need to get my DP, and have these tests done to make sure all is good, and Stage 2 here i come!

    your car ran that hard on stock everything?? i wonder what mine will put out.....

    nay I have bolt ons, GrimmSpeed Lightweight crank pulley, GrimmSpeed Ported N Polished Ceramic Coated Manifolds, Uppipe ( With EWG ), Crosspipe, Grimmspeed EBCS ( Switched to Manual when I went EWG to prevent Wastegate Flutter ) Tial 38mm EWG, DW 65c Fuel pump, Moroso Dual Catch Cans, Process West TMIC, Turbosmart Dual Port BoV ( Set to full Recirculating ), Cobb SF intake with box, Cobb Accessport, Invidia Catless Downpipe, Invidia Q300 Axel back with Titanium Tips, Kartboy Short throw. Internals, Turbo, Plugs, and Injectors are Stock. If I did Injectors and E85... GG I'd be at 400 Wheel TQ and probably mid 300 whp, I'm afraid because of the 5 speed I don't want my Trans to grenade on me, maybe after I get a new clutch.

    Mustang AWD, supposedly a low reading Dyno. the tuner was expecting numbers around 290WHP and a little over 300tq. I mean 306 whp and 325 TQ on all fours isn't bad at all for a 2.5L boosted flat 4 considering it's only bolt-ons.

    I mean that's what I'd expect given you have pretty much all bolt ons except for injectors and a new turbo...

    You may squeeze out more power if you got some ELHs and got rid of the stock midpipe too.
