u cant just blame the part. its also how its installed. if a shitty engine builder puts in a piece designed for a certain application and it goes to hell everyone and their mom just blames the part and not the builder and thats how manufacturers get a bad rep. The shop i chose to have build my car is known for fixing all the problems that other shops in houston #### up. If the owner of the shop has assured me that the BC springs and retainers will do its job and he uses them on all his wrx/sti and has not herd of one problem with any of them, ill bet my bottom dollar this guy knows what hes talkn about. if it goes to hell and i drop a valve during the break in period o well its covered by warranty. if not cool.

Tuned by Eric @ Kozmic Motorsports

Tuned at 21psi, 93 octane. Car would not make any more then 22psi on the dyno due to maxed out map sensor and pulling 4 degrees of timing due to false knock. (front right wheel bearing causing knock sensor to go off). Cams not tuned fully for max power also due to knock sensor.

Numbers
Dyno: Mustang
Fuel: 93 pump gas

WHP: 333
WTQ: 320

(turbo has much more power to make. replacing map sensor and wheel bearing. replacing stock header with perrin or invidia EL header and going in for a retune)

Car Info
Year: 2004 STi
Engine Management: Cobb AccessPort V2
Turbo: Blouch 1.5xtr 8cm^2
Intercooler: Turbo XS FMIC
Injectors: FIC 900cc top feed injectors with top feed conversion kit/fuel rails and fuel lines
Intake/Inlet: Custom big maf intake. AVO turbo inlet
Downpipe: Ebay
CBE: Ebay
BOV: Turbo XS resirc.
Forged pistons
H beam rods
GSC stage 2 cams
BC springs&retainers
Grimmspeed AOS
Grimmspeed up pipe
Fuel lab fuel pressure regulator
ARP head studs and case bolts
Grimmspeed EBCS
Walbro fuel pump
ACT clutch and light flywheel

Over all im pleased with the power the car made. yea its not what i expected, but the car sure does pull, specially up top. My tuner said that the turbo/fueling is no where near maxed out and that a lot of power is to be had. I figure if i swap my stock headers for EL headers it will drop my psi due to the car becoming a more efficient air pump timing&fuel can be added. Fixing the wheel bearing will eliminate the knock sensor going off, more timing&fuel can be added. replacing the map sensor with a higher reading map sensor going from 21psi to ~25psi more fuel can be added. Not to mention the cams being tuned to their full potential. Factoring all that in plus proper tuning i should be in the high 300's or so.

I think ive already stated this before, but i will be keeping the turbo setup for a year or 2 until i finish with school then go rotated pt 6262 with a smaller hot side for better low end response. make as close to 500whp that my tuner will deem reliable and stop.
