Pass on the CO's until you can afford a decent set. Or a spring/strut combo.

You said it yourself, you need a little cash when you get it tuned in case something comes up.

Called up Dent Sport Garage this morning to let them know I had installed the exhaust, and at the same time asked if anyone had called and canceled on them managed to get pushed up from next week to tomorrow afternoon on the dyno, for anyone who wanted to know, if the 02 Wrx will run properly after installing intake exhaust and so on, I am having no issues, but I also won't let it boost until it is tuned. So as far as I know as long as you keep it from boosting you shouldn't have a problem with waiting a little while to get tuned.

Well I went to Dent Sport Garage yesterday, fantastic shop. Those guys really knew their stuff and had built some amazing machines. When I showed up they where in the process of corner balancing their rally setup for this weekend. Matt wasted no time in getting my car on the heartbreaker dyno. Once started my car went from 148hp to 207 on his base map and 1 pull. From there on he tuned and did what he could to get the boost curve to level out to redline. But unfortunately he said my AP header where leaking at the slip joints which was cause the boost to drop off after 6k rpm, he said if I where to have that fixed it would end up over boosting unless i had it retuned, so I guess I will wait until I upgrade to an Sti turbo setup eg: vf39, intercooler, injectors, and a pump. So my final numbers which were not disappointing for me in the least where 229hp 240tq.

Now I know you guys want to see the dyno graph believe me I wish i had it, I think 1 of 2 things happened. The most probable was that when I was paying for the tune as I signed my receipt I left the graph on the desk or when I got in my car I tossed the papers I had in my hand in the back seat when I got to my aunts house after driving on the highway only the receipt wa in the back and the graph could have blown out of the window. But I will contact those guys later today to see if they can email it to me. I took a couple pictures and a few vids on my phone but I wasn't allowed next to the car while he did the pulls in case tires blew out.

If you do not want to read all that my numbers where 229hp 240tq and I might have left the dyno graph at the shop but I'm trying to get it today.

Well as of now the header is leaking at the slip joint area which was my fault. I should have recognized it was welded in those spots, so after being on the dyno it pretty much opened those spots right up and it is all I can hear. I will not be able to get it welded for a couple days, and after they are welded I need to disconnect the wastegate solenoid to prevent over boosting until I can have it retuned. I do enjoy that it is more responsive though as I really don't step on it and get near redline at all. So I know it has more power and I am hoping I'll have it ready for when I can get to the track with it. I look forward to seeing what times it can pull with me driving it to it's full potential.
