Since you have a dyno # in mind, in terms of parts to reach it, you need to contact the shop that will have your car on the dyno. Every dyno reads differently, and they'll know what parts are needed to hit XXX on theirs. You haven't listed any modifications, so I'll assume the car is stock. If so, get an uppipe / turboback exhaust, and a custom reflash done on the car; see how that feels, before dumping $$ into power modifications.forgottentheory said:I have a 04 wrx right I took the turbo of and took it to my buddies shop to get inspected and touched up and i want to reach the 300s in performance and handling as well. I was also reading bout the uppipe should that be my first mod ? And if so would u or anybody know a good shop and trust worthy to let them put the parts on my car in the future I live in Miami fl btw
I've seen the gaskets that come with many aftermarket uppipes. After having done multiple installs, I recommend using OE gaskets from your local dealership. Once you've done an uppipe install, you'll realize the last thing you want to do is redo it because of a bad gasket...forgottentheory said:as for the gasket does it come with uppipe or it needs to be purchased seperate ?
What are your emissions requirements? That's the big factor when it comes to making power in a Subaru, since you must remove emission control devices to get it (which, as SD pointed out, makes the car illegal on public roads).forgottentheory said:And yes the car is completely stock. Is the uppipe turboback and the cobb tunning a good combo
Gaskets needed vary based on the install method. When I do an install, I use the following:forgottentheory said:Ok so ill just go to a subaru dealer and ask for the gasket. Not really to sure I got to look that up
Any union you break, you should replace the gasket. Your installation approach will determine what gaskets are needed. I already outlined what gaskets I typically replace.forgottentheory said:So basically go to the dealer and ask for a gasket for an uppipe ?
The dealer will have authentic Subaru gaskets. You are buying authentic Subaru gaskets. Call ahead and if they are not in stock, they can be ordered.ok i understand now uppipe to turbo but when i go to buy it will the dealer have them or is the uppipe similiar to the stock
