Cheers mate! still plenty to do, carbon fibre front splitter, skirts and spats, polybushings, and another 20/30hp. Then I will be happy. Razz

Wish I never bothered cutting the bumper for the exhausts, I think the single exit looks better now. Rolling Eyes So if I was you don't do it.

How much extra bhp can you get out of these wrx without having to upgrade engine parts and brakes. I assume mine is running around 255 bhp as its got the ppp on. Wondering if i could go much further. Yeah mate, think i will leave the single exhaust pipe.

You could get it up around 280bhp with the standard turbo with a uprated panel filter and a sports/decat + remap, and the engine (should) be fine at that power. I only changed my pistons as I was aiming for around 360/370bhp.

This is a bargain if you are staying with the stock turbo! I doubt you will see one of these for sale again second hand.

Car looking good there Carl. Cool

You can always go back to single exit mate, loads of the yanks do it. And I'll take that crappy quad set off you for a bargain price if you decide to go that way. Can't give them things away unfortunately but I'll give you a few tenders for it Wink

Not much different to standard when driving normal but it has a real kick up the arse when you put your foot down. Very Happy

I have a charge speed splitter, skirts and rear spats to fit when i get home from graft (February) then im thinking of selling it in the summer and getting a classic type r.

Very nice. That's the only thing with mine i could do with a few extra horses ( im never happy with power haha ).
It's a shame if you decide to sell it after the work you've done. Then again a type r is good for putting a smile on your face Smile

New STI grill, and Chargespeed splitter fitted, the splitter is temporarily plastidipped black but is getting carbon dipped once Locky sorts his new unit out.  Very Happy

Had a blast out today and all I can say is wow! Very Happy
Bob has done a great job with the mapping, the power is amazing no lag it just goes like shittt off a shovel in any gear.
That's it now power wise 405bhp just feels perfect on the road next step will be a gearbox.

Big thanks to Andy Kindon for all the work he has done on the car, the engine is quiet and doesn't use a drop of oil in-between changes. Cool

Awesome Carl - Top quality mapping from Bob as he gives a shit about the driveability of your car and top quality engine building as per usual from Dr Kindon - Glad you are enjoying it so much. I am getting my Alcatek fitted and mapped this Thursday by Bob....should be fun Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Doubt it mate, its only got forged pistons so it's probably on the limit now of what the engine will take.
