Default 97 with WRX TD04

For ***** and giggles I finally dynoed my old setup I installed 5 years ago. Car had been sitting for a while, still running a 4 year old tune on my MS1 installed in parallel with the factory ECU.

Quick info:
Stock engine with 170k miles
BEGI T3 log manifold with subaru adapter plate
BEGI divorced 2.5" downpipe to 2.5" cat-less exhaust
All 2" intercooler piping with the smaller eBay intercooler (can't remember dimensions)
MBC set at ~15-16 PSI



Oh, and the tune is not the best, but safe.

Can't complain at 231hp on a mustang dyno. The spoolup of the turbo is outstanding, making a great street turbo. The lack of top end though makes for a not so great track turbo.

Not bad at all frankly be very happy. Mustang dynos can be conservative but it's nice to load the car to map the calibration under load. This is something that makes an inertia dyno practically worthless, (or let's say pretty dang hard), for tuning under boost. Our turbo slant 6 72' dart with propane made about 190hp on a Mustang Dyno from 3.7 liters. That forklift sound and smell is to die for and the car runs pretty stout.
