Hey everyone this is my scheduled set-up as of Monday next week.

If that's all you have on it, you will be in the area of 215-220whp

1-Look into getting a 3port bcs (If the tuner is ok with them).
2-Maybe a SRI/CAI?
3-STi or upgraded TMIC
4-Change your plugs b4 you go
5-Change your oil b4 you go

With those you could net 15-20whp

This on a Mustang Dyno?

Let us know how it turns out.

I've been using NGK Iridiums, stock heat range (NGK LFR6AIX-11).

Coppers are the best but have to be changed a whole lot more often. You're probably best off getting stock Platinums.

True, Coppers are the best, but I'd hate to have to change my spark plugs every other oil change or so. Iridiums are slightly more durable than Platinums. Anyway, the spark plug debate is similar to the oil debate. Talk to your tuner and see what they recommend.

Right about where you should be. Nice torque. How does it feel when you drive it?

Nice call Paul! Nailed that one

Nice numbers for 91 octane. Higher than I would have thought.

The car feels a bit better, i have not opened it up completely yet. Yet, it is not as slugglish between 1.5-3 rpm's. I just wish Kansas sold 93 octane fuel so i could squeeze more power out of it...

So i have a guy with a 2005 sti intercooler. Is $260.00 a fair price? Also, will this bolt up to my 2006 engine?

That's a fair price if it has the y-pipe.

But it won't bolt right up. See this thread.

Silicone Hose question HELP!!!!!

Depends on condition also. Much cheaper than new tho.

Here is a link to the intercooler pics. It doesnt look in the best of shape, but i think i've seen worse.

What do you think?

Stock and aftermarket parts off 2005 STi
