Stock psi is ~13.5-14.5 depending on an exhaust.
With an exhaust and a tune, a WRX will see ~235-245whp at 14.5psi.
With a bigger turbo & supporting mods, you can expect to see anywhere from 280-350whp depending on the turbo and tune @20psi +/-2

Don't be fooled though. Even though the numbers are a lot lower than most domestics, the AWD gives a big advantage. While the other car is peeling out, a WRX will be gaining a couple car lengths head start.

Um yea I did. Well I didn't state it that way but why talk about crank numbers? No one pulls out their motors and puts it on a engine dyno. And whp is all that matters so that's all I talk about.

I was a bit off though. 13-15 psi pulled in about 380 or so rwhp on a stick. 400 guys have a bit more engine work done usually ported intakes.

Yea I totally understand from a dig you WRX guys and the EVO guys are deffinitly bad ass. Can't argue against all wheel drive in that respect.
