thought:

anything is doable with enough money.



If you want 400awhp you need to do a lot more research

300 AWHP is quick car...when you make it that far, then think twice about the money you want to spend on going 400 AWHP, its not cheap.

A lot of research.

Did some research found that 400I whp is possible with stock internals....and thoughts on this
Possible yes. Stretching it though. Look at my build thread. I have well over 10k dumped into my car and I'm not quite at 400whp. I could get there with a little bit bigger turbo but that sacrafices the road driveability of it. Once you start pushing 350whp you've significantly compromised the longevity of your motor.

Ha. You have a 2002 WRX. The EJ205 internals are only capable of 400whp in your wildest dreams. Oh right, then there's your transmission.

Seriously. How many threads are we going to get regarding 400 whp? Stock, bugeyes put down 170 whp. Do you seriously think that 400whp won't damage anything???

Maybe he only wants that kind of output for a few minutes? Surely the stock guts can handle that, Zach. Always the naysayer.

Any money spent on upgrades is not out of necessity.

You should be worried about "bigger power" on the EJ205 with 1 mile.

Spend the money on a built motor if you want to go fast. If you're going to regularly track your car then I bet you only get 1000 race miles out of it, if you're lucky. That's being incredibly generous.
