2011 sti hatch with auto transmission
 
Hi all I'm new here and i need some help,first I'd like to introduce myself I'm Mohammad from Kuwait.

i got a 2011 wrx sti hatch with auto transmission (in some markets they call it A-line) and i need to tune it,actualy i want to reach 500 whp and im my country we don't got a pro tuners so i guess that i have to go farther :)

i need seggestions from the pro's here.

note:

-in summer season the temperature reach 50-55c .
-i want the car for daily use .

your going to need about 30000 usd to hit 500whp...trust me! I know

basco 06-18-2011 07:14 PM

and I would not recommend daily usage

If you want a tuner, buy a cobb ap. With that you can do most of the tuning yourself.

Matt is the man here with high HP subies. But there is ALOT of information with several different setups and parts used to get there. Its not going to be cheap, easier, or very daily driver friendly like mentioned before.

first thanx guys for the comments

second 30000 usd i think it's multi exaggerated,what i'll change the car? p~

third i think 500whp for daily use not something impossible in these days look around for all the sports cars nows days the corvette zo6,porsche turbo,gtr,they are super cars with high power and for daily use.

and who's (Matt) and how can i contact him ?

anyway if i hit 400-450whp it's also good idea ;)

His screen name on here is Basco, the one that replied here also. Certain cars that come with that amount of power are one thing, they are designed and engineered for that. These cars on the other hand arent. If or when you would reach that number/goal with these cars it requires alot more maintainance than normal. A goal of 400-450 is a little more realistic, but still requires a built engine with many supporting mods. I dont like sending people away from this site, as its alot more user friendly, and has just as much knowledge as any other site I have visited. But check out NASIOC.com as its a larger forum. You can join there and check out other peoples profiles and threads that have gone down a similar path as you are contemplating going down.

Also just a side note...Im not entirely sure you can get a Cobb ap for foreign market cars. At least i thought i read that on cobbs site at some point. But in any case with the power you want you will need a seriously built engine and pretty big turbo with all kinds of supporting mods which will need to be tuned for. And if you want a daily driver car you will want to build it for more power than you want and tune it down to a conservative level. If you have never driven a high horsepower wrx i would say you should build it in steps just so you really know what you are in for. 500 or even 400 in one of these cars is one Hell of a ride. Nothing like spinning all 4 tires. Good luck! And keep us posted on what you do.

I'm at over $30,000 for 400 whp. :unamused:

Apples to oranges. You cannot make that comparison as those cars were designed from the factory to be streetable with that power. The Bugatti Veyron makes a streetable 1,000 hp. A 1,000 hp Subaru would look something like this:

you've got your quote wrong justin

brfatal 06-20-2011 09:13 PM

Odd.... Fixed it.

Coming to ClubWRX's annual meet in Winchester? We can't have me being the fastest car there again. :)

basco 06-21-2011 01:18 PM

I would love to, I just need to get the time off and I'll be there, and my quote of 30,000 was if you get everything right the first time, as both you and I know that never happens
