08 WRX Sedan Installs and Tune
1 Attachment(s)
It took some time to come together but finally completed. Went with AVO 380, need to thank Paul Hansen at AVO. He was waiting for a shipment which might not arrive in time for my install. He allowed me to purchase From Chris and Neil At Cobb(thanks).

Precision Tuning in NJ installed AVO 380 Turbo, Perrin TMIC and inlet hose, Deatshwerks 750cc injectors, AVO fuel pump and GM Boost Solenoid.

After fighting with some of the installs it was tuned and I was very happy with the results.
Don't have the Dyno Sheet to post yet, I ran out quick and asked them to Email it to me.
HP was 335 don't recall torque. Turbo pulls right up to red line lag is non existant.

Will post Dynosheet when I get it.

Previously installed - Perrin Turbo Back Exhaust, Cold Air Intake, Front and Rear Sway Bars and End Links, BC Coilovers, Brisk Racing Plugs.

Why is it uncorrected?

You may have that at the crank, but that's a HUGE gain if it's at the wheels.

Yes at wheels. Uncorrected just means not factoring in atmospheric conditions. It was a warm humid day, so readings are probably lower than than if corrected.

pretty nice gains man. is there any more head room with the turbo or is it maxed out. i have a 08 wrx as well and am going to be looking for a turbo upgrade hopefully in the near future

Dang that's pretty nice man. Good amount of mods as well, I like your suspension setup the most. It seems like it would be a blast to drive.

Rfed 06-09-2009 12:28 PM

There is more, its my daily driver so the tuner did not go to aggressive with boost. We did not go any higher but I am sure 22 psi would yield more.
It is a completely different car to drive. The coilovers are a must and the BCs are a great deal for the buck

does the avo380 have the lgt housing i believe its called? is it a direct bolt on?

basco 06-09-2009 01:48 PM

yeah the AVO 380 has the LGT housing and is a direct bolt on to all 08+ WRX's and LGT's

Wutangjn12 06-12-2009 02:56 PM

how much did you pay for the turbo? on rallitek ([url=]AVO 380 Ball Bearing Turbo Legacy / WRX[/url]) its 1800+, thats the first page i pulled up on it tho, and also, would u happen to know what kind of numbers the car can make on an aggressive tune. and also other turbos that fit the lgt housing? thanks

The AVOs are named/numbered after their HP the can accomplish pretty much. My tune shop had an AVO 380 hit 381.2 HP on an 03. And good luck finding them cheaper than the price posted above, unless of course its used. Its a twinscroll turbo if I remember correctly.
