No the turbo wont flow enough for 300 hp, only about 410 CFM max which is about 270 wheel horse power.

You won't be able to do that with a stock wrx turbo, but you could throw on a stock sti turbo (vf39) for cheap. That can get you to around 300 hp.

Im confused... Your topic says "STi horsepower" but you said you have a WRX. Which one do you have? This makes a difference in the answer.

i think he is shooting for 300 hp like the sti...but doesnt understand that an sti is 300 crank not 300whp. if you want 300 whp get up/down pipe, injectors, fuel pump, vf39 and a tune and you should be close to 300 but most likely alittle under.

bigger and better than ever

300 to the crank is easy on the stock turbo. 300 to the wheels isnt happenin.

You guys all think that the stock turbo sucks, its just like a 14b off a 1st Gen DSM, these turbos are even cabable of 12's but not without alot of tunning.
