Short version:

325AWHP/355AWTQ MAX! @ 18 psi on the Dyno Dynamics dyno, at Kaizen tuning in Ayer Ma, tuned by BREN! Very Happy

Long version:

All is forgiven! I love this effin car! It. Is. An. ANIMAL!

I followed Eric down in his beautiful GT sedan. Nice car. He went first. He put up some bigger numbers with his bigger turbo and FMIC. Nice!

While he was getting tuned, I swapped in my new Grimmspeed electronic boost control solenoid. Got her ready, and tried to settle my nerves for my turn. Coffee was a bad idea this morning. lol.

Tune went great. He made 325/355 with it and brought it back down to 318/351 at 18psi tapering to 15 to redline for a nice, safe tune. All went well. No issues on the dyno. Made a little more than half a dozen pulls and it was dialed in. Bren knows his stuff. He is amazing to watch how quickly he zeroes the tune in. This is the most power he's made so far with the little BNR EVO 16G. My injectors are way overkill, only cycling at like 50% duty rate! Ahahahaha... Guess I should get a bigger turbo... Wink

Look at that torque curve!


Pics or it didn't happen?




Some pretty cool stuff there! And in the other side of the shop, there was a race car fab shop.


It's normal pose:


But it's not just mine! lol


Did somebody say vids?





So then we went for a drive to "clean it up" for the street. Was going great, until I split a hose or inlet or something... Doh! Fail! Nothing catastrophic, brought home a pressure tester so I can find the leak. It's just affecting the part throttle/low load/no boost driveability. I'll find it.

But man... This thing is just UNREAL!!!! It's a total animal. I know I said that already, but it's true! It builds boost early, spools super quick. It has power EVERYWHERE!!!!! I can't explain the rush driving this thing around. Backroads are a BLAST!!!! Very Happy <----This is me.

Now I just need to do coilovers to stop the rear tires from rubbing and it'll be done... Til the next mod. Wink

Those are some sweet ass numbers considering a stock STI produces 300 & 300 at the flywheel, and you are dropping those nubers
all four wheels. With drivetrain loss, that should be someplace near 246 at the wheels for the STI. So all I can say is DAMN!!!!!!!!! cheers

if you're curious about crank number...
~400bhp / 430tq (+/- 5)

on that dyno anyway... with that drivetrain, you're round about 18% driveline loss.

I'd be willing to bet that there is more than 18% drivetrain loss in a Subaru AWD system. I'd wager it's more than 20%.
