I figure I'm making around the 160hp fm states running around 6psi so that puts our power to weight ratios in the same ballpark. Only raced from a roll, didn't want to bother otherwise and get my **** eated.
Here is a graph of my BONE STOCK 06 wrx that I just rebuilt


It is completely unmodded, on crappy 91oct, the only thing done to it is a custom, very conservative tune by me (at only 12.5psi, 1psi over stock)..I have a custom 17psi peak map that I flash in on special occasions that would bump peak numbers and everything below 5500rpm at least another 20whp.
I ran a stock sti, and we are about even with him starting to pull away at speeds over 70. A tbe+tune sti absolutely rapes me.
On a dynojet a stock sti usually puts down 245-50 or so. On a mustang about 220-30...
For the record, my wrx is around 3200 with me in it (did a little weight redux).

/\ 06 Stg 0.5Love it! Subie guys around here have always been big on "stages". I haven't had anyone ask me what "stage" I have on my Miata yet, but I'd have to guess "stage 1".

no ****. I rolled-up on the dyno with a car I thought was incredibly fun that made 180whp/155wtq. I left that day with a car that frightened me making 261/252.

Well technically "stages" are a bunch of bullshit. HOWEVER, it is extremely helpful when you are talking about subaru's. For instance: stock or with just drop in filter+stage 1 map refers to specifically that. TBE and stage2 map refers to a whole different kind of map with higher boost, afr's, cel codes disabled, timing curve, etc etc etc. Call it stupid or ricey but believe me it cuts down on stupid conversations drastically. Instead of listing your mods or what not you just say what "stage" you are at and people know what general mods you have. Obviously anything higher than a stage3 (vf3x turbo, larger tmic, 3port bcs, tbe, tune) is a custom setup and needs to be listed.


BTW: this only applies to subaru's, srt4's, cobalt's, and a couple other cars. Thats it. Anyone that asks what "stage" your miata is at is a complete and utter fucktard

That's cause you suck at street tuning. You actually suck at a lot of things. Hustler = Fail

Don't feel bad: wrx is a great car, but not as fun as a miata...again ask me how I know
I had a buddy who made 260whp with a Stg 2 tune and 3" exhaust on his WRX. It was enough to pull a car on stock STi's.

That was my car at 7psi (greddy with tons of bandaids) the day I put the FMIC on it, and dyno'd at 146whp. I ran into him on the way home and he wanted to run to see where we stood. This was probably the 4th or 5th time we raced. Anytime I did a mod, we ran to where I stood. That is the WRX that I mentioned above that made 260whp.

Most stock STi's and Evos dyno about 240-245whp on our dynojet. The new GTR R35 puts down 430whp/430tq stock.

7psi w/ bandaids vs 6psi AEM EMS. Tuning IS everything.

10psi tuned vs untuned. We turned the boost up from 6psi to 10psi at the drag strip, and just added fuel and pulled timing to be safe. The next day with put it on the dyno and did 3 tuning pulls.
