Dyno Tune Thursday – Full Bolt-Ons 2016 Subaru STi

Those of your with a 2015+ Subaru STi should take a close look at this set-up as the power gains are huge and this pretty much maxes out the stock turbo without adding an alternative fuel like E85.  If you don’t want something as loud as an EWG you can do without this and give up a little power and boost control.

While the peak numbers of tuning a naturally aspirated FR-S, BRZ or 86 are not huge there are gains to be had and also big improvements found in the mid-range.  As you can see at 4000RPM the custom tune from OnPoint Dyno made 10WHP and 12WTQ which is around 10% gain over stock numbers.

Do octane boosters really work? Dyno proven results

Over the years of working in the performance industry, I’ve seen many new products advertised to make big power gains for a low cost with some sort of new “technology” or “additive”.  As a car enthusiast, I have always been skeptical of these types of claims and because of this, I have avoided offering them as a product for sale through Touge Tuning.  In recent years, however, I have seen cases of these products being tested by others with dyno charts to prove power gains can be had. Being somewhat skeptical of other peoples information I decided that we had to do our own testing at the shop to see if this stuff can really work as claimed.  The product we chose to test was BOOSTane Pro which is advertised to be able to convert fuel from 93 octane to as high as 116 octane.  These are lofty claims to back up so we contacted BOOSTane prior to our testing to see if they would provide us samples to test.

2015 Subaru WRX Stage 2+ with TGV Deletes – Dyno Numbers

Here we have a strong example of a 2015 Subaru WRX with simple modifications that extract 70WHP and 80WTQ over stock with a nice safe tune.  Out of the box the WRX definitely feels much slower than an STi of the same year, yet with some simple mods you can get very close to the numbers with the same modifications.

We appreciate everyone’s patience while we have done a 2-3 week move in 7 days to our new location.  There’s still a lot of work to be done to finish up the transition but we’re now back open and operating.  It will likely take us the rest of the week to get caught up on old and new orders as well as emails so please be patient if you haven’t received a response yet.   Our phone number is also in the process of being ported over so we will be without a phone line for a little bit.

Our new address is 408 Gibraltar Drive in Mississauga, the main intersection is Derry and Kennedy.  We look forward to serving you all better with our expansion and we will post full details soon.
