What to do next?

Postby KingKen » Mon Apr 10, 2017 2:18 am

Currently own a 04 STI 2.0L and have done some work to it over the last year or so.

Engine:
Process West 72mm in-guard C.A.I
Process West Top mount
Pro speed racing silicone turbo inlet
ID 1000 cc fuel injectors
Walbro 255 fuel pump
GFB BOV
Exhaust: 3" turbo back with Xforce cannon
ECU: Haltech platinum pro plug n play

Been dynoed and tuned with 230kw

What would be the next logical step for more power?

More like the obvious; Bigger turbo and e85, because all of that you have done is just purely prep work for those things.

As above. How many k's on the motor? e85 will net you a whole lot more power but you will probably blow up the motor.

So:
- e85 or flex fuel
- Bigger turbo
- Built motor
= $$$$$

My main concern is that the engine will blow unless i get forged internals?

I could just e85 and tune. Probably save me from getting a bigger turbo and doing a built motor since its safer in terms of detenation. Not sure if im willing to spend that much on it just yet its got 200kkms on it.

I was going to E85 my old Forester with 190k and a vf34 turbo. Tuner said my motor would blow

Didn't the 04 STI come with semi closed deck and forged internals?

Yea, only if you try and get more out of what the crank can do, and you're a long way off that. If the turbo is delivering the power where you want it, then get the e85 / flex done and get a proper tune so it's not detonating all the time. You wanted to know what was the next step, that is the next step.
