1/4 mile run 2002 WRX borla exhaust, header
 
meh...

You have a header and no TBE, put a down pipe on and run Stage 2, then you should get some good times, like low 13"s. Damn, what kind of car did you race? 11 seconds @ 130 MPh, that's pretty quick car

what's TBE? which downpipe is best to get, considering power gains, install etc... I've seen HKS for 130.00 is that a good choice? I forgot, I know it had around 800hp, that's what the driver said. I think it was an older mitsubishi.

No HKS is a crappy downpipe. Improve your driving to, that 60 foot needs work.

TBE is "turboback exhaust" = cat-back + downpipe

I have an Invidia dp and I am quite pleased with it. Whatever dp you get, get one with a bellmouth.

Invidia, any other good brands to consider?

WReXd 01-03-2007 01:48 PM

Aps, Crucial, Mrt, and other split bellmouth or divorced wastegate downpipes will probably give you the most gains. Keep in mind that the Invidia v3 is the one with the split bellmouth. The design is not really that big of a deal though, unless you have high hp goals and a lot of money. A bellmouth downpipe will work almost as well, and usually costs much less.

What about a Cobb downpipe?

mxboy15u 01-03-2007 05:06 PM

Expensive, but it will work.

Your K&N intake should be fine, it arranges the MAF correctly. I really don't think you should be running a header untuned, even with an accessport it does not call for a header. But downpipe and a protune will make a nice combo with your car.

Jakes02 01-04-2007 09:48 AM

how much do you have to spend?

I suggest- [url]http://www.istoreparts.com/invidia-downpipe-subaru-0206-wrxsti-p-11573.html[/url]

Cobb AP and a protune from a good shop.

Jakes02 01-04-2007 09:51 AM

Try [url]www.pandlmotorsports.com[/url] for a protune. I have no firsthand experience with them but have heard good things.

candela 01-04-2007 11:40 AM

You look like all you really want is a 13.999, is that correct?

If you want, since you are running the car pretty decent, just add a few things aside from the accessport and run yoru 13's. 14.2@92 isn't bad at all. Just cause the guy isn't doing sub 2.0's 60ft on his 100k+ mile car doesn't mean hes not driving it decently.

Reksio:
1) buy a DP. I see you are in Chicago so you will likely have to get yoruself a catted one so you can pass emissions. You can choose from probably about 40 different kinds for your car. I personally like the Helix for the price/performance; everyone has there preferences. Ebay and classifieds for used exhause components is also a good way to go.

2)buy a uppipe. I would just suggest a used one since they don't really go bad unless misused while NOT on the car.

You should be able to get both of these for about $400 used and around $650 or so depending on how cheap you go new. Install both of those, go to the dragstrip and pratice and 13's should come to you very easily. No need for an AP, tune or anything if that is really all you want.

What is a tune or protune, I am confused. "header untuned" what do you mean by that.
? dp and "protune" ?
