My dyno results

So I finally got to dyno my car the other day, and while it was nothing spectacular it had me grinning from ear to ear listening to my car. car is stock except for a catted incidia downpipe and a cobb catback exhaust, and a cobb stg2 tune.
So for anyone who is interested in what kind of numbers they will be putting down here are my results.

That's better than my 2nd Gen STI on stage 2 probably. Good thing I'm not stage 2 anymore

You could get a little more with a protune, fine tuning all the attributes. You planning on one?

The shop I had it dynoed at said that to get the best bang for my buck with a protune I should really get an aftermarket intercooler (because the WRX intercooler is smaller and parts of it are plastic and wouldn't hold up to the test of time at higher boost), pref a front mount which would also require a aftermarket intake because the piping for a front mount runs through where the stock airbox is... keep in mind he did not say that I had to get front mount, but it would be better in his opinion.
And yes when ever I can get the money together for the parts and a protune then I plan to get it done. allthough I want to get the handling dialed in before I get more power just to be safe (at least suspension, and brakes)

That's the way to do it man! I'll be at stage 2 till I upgrade the suspension, shifter, and brakes for sure!

And yeah a front mount is def not needed at say stage 2, but the OE intercooler is a joke being all plastic either way you go. If upgraded turbos and stage 3 is a plan I'd recommend a front mount, otherwise a top mount is def more than sufficient.

I'll prob go with a front mount to leave my optoins open in the future, in case I ever decide to upgrade my turbo. (which I don't currently plan on doing)

Top mounts provide a lot less piping, particularly with the 09+ turbo layout. The intercooler is practically integrated into the intake manifold. Shorter piping means less air for the turbo to move before it starts increasing air volume in the compression chamber. Particularly if you have no plans of upgrading your turbo a front mount is a poor choice. Personally, I would stick with a top mount for even a moderate sized turbo upgrade. Only the largest turbo upgrages, ones requiring a rotated setup anyway, would I recommend a FMIC for. TMIC's have many advantages, the main disadvantages are that they have to be removed to work on the engine beneath them, they are more exposed to waste heat from the engine (heat wrap the headers, turbo, dp, etc to help this), and they have more limitations on intercooler volume. In return, you get much much shorter piping, fewer rock chips, and more space to work with for intakes, radiators, headers, etc. And they're a lot cheaper and easier to install.
