The 40hp comes form the turbo, obviously tuning is different since it is a different snail. If you have a 08 you could purchase a vf-52 from a 09 wrx, swap it over with an aftermarket downpipe and run a 09 stage 2 tune. It would put down roughly 300whp pending fuel, elevation etc..
Good, because I just bought an 08 wrx a few hours ago.
im sorry too. please tell me you got a premium so it at least looks like the 09. an 08 without the body kit and spoiler just screems im a corolla. i cant believe subi ever let them leave the factory like that.
Nope, I got the base model. I kinda like how subtle it looks, I have always wanted to do a sleeper, I'm thinking about trying to make it look like a non turbo ( perrin stealth fmic, and a non turbo hood) Then I won't have all these ricer hondas trying to get me to race them, I have owned that car for about 24 hours and 3 hondas have already tried to get me to race. It is already getting annoying.
You can buy the body kit from subaru. its like 4 pieces from the 09, comes out to about 1100$ pretty sure its just the front bumper,grill,side skirts, and rear diffuser. in all seriousness. no one will be able to tell the difference unless they have an 09. Get an AVO 380 and show those Vf52s whats crackin hahaha.
I dont think it looks like a corolla, but than again, if you squint your eyes and tilt your head.... maybe just maybe
Boost pressure is also almost irrelevant depending on how or what you are comparing them to (i.e my stock turbo at 18 PSI just over 200 AWHP, my 20G at 18 PSI just over 300AWHP, same dyno same gas, minor differences in heat and all). You are comparing two different turbos between the 08 and 09 so its a bit more than just the PSI.
