Dyno Tune Thursday – External Wastegate 2013 STi breaks 300WHP

This 2013 Subaru STi made great power with the inclusion of an external wastegate and fueling upgrades to support the increased airflow.  If you’re looking to maximize the power on your turbo car it is important to remove exhaust restriction and have plenty of fuel to meet the demands of the engine.

Dyno Tune Thursday – Simply modded and Health 2005 STi Tune

Below we have a graph from a custom tune on a 2005 Subaru STi that was very healthy and with simple mods made a good amount of power.  Typically we would expect around 275WHP for this car but this one ended up at around 287WHP which is very solid for the older VF39 turbo on this car.  Having a well maintained and healthy engine makes a world of difference when it comes to making power on any platform.

After all the testing we have shown previously we wanted to show one last thing which is the difference between an OTS map and a Custom map on the same car and same mods.  As you can see the custom tune makes more power everywhere and with a healthy margin of safety as well.

Dyno Tune Thursday – Stock vs. Stage 2+ Custom Tune on a 2011 WRX

Below we have the final step that we did with our 2011 Subaru WRX Sedan after testing it Stage 1+.  We installed an Invidia catted Turboback exhaust and a 3-port EBCS and had OnPoint Dyno tune it as they would an average customers car.  As you can see the results are quite impressive making 287WHP and 322WTQ, 60WHP and almost 70 WTQ over stock.  With simple modifications like this you can extract quite a healthy does of performance.

Dyno Tune Thursday – Stock vs. COBB OTS Stage 2+ on a 2011 WRX

Below we have the third step that we did with our 2011 Subaru WRX Sedan after testing it Stage 1+.  We installed an Invidia catted Turboback exhaust and flashed the ECU with the COBB OTS Stage 2+ for AEM Intakes map.  The numbers were quite good although slightly higher in the top end due to boost creep experienced.  Next up we’ll have OnPoint custom tune the set-up and see how much ultimate power we can make.

Dyno Tune Thursday – Stock vs. Stage 1+ on a 2011 WRX

Here’s a back to back comparison dyno on a 2011 Subaru WRX showing the gains of it 100% stock and then after adding the AEM Intake and flashing the Stage 1+ map.  The turbo wasn’t reaching target boost and we didn’t have time to run the HWG map.  We would have expected to see another 20 WTQ and WHP gain if it was hitting target boost which is 17PSI tapering to 12PSI.  The gains down low are great for an intake and off the shelf map.
