I want to make some more HP!!!

Ok so I am new to this site and I'm new to this kind of tuning, I have worked on car almost all my life but never really got into this kind of serious tuning until a few years ago. Ok this is what I have 2006 wrx wagon. DC sport Exhaust, From the header back and the cobbs tuner running the stage 2 map until I get it tuned by a pro. Ok now to my question what else should I get? I really don't want to make it into a race car or go to the track every Friday night but I want the power so when I need it ill have it. I'm just looking for like 350 whp or something close to it so my wagon can spank the new mustangs
Well thank for anyone that helps!!!

bigger turbo(with supporting mods), bigger IC, injectors, meth injection and tune should get you close.

I don't like APS turbos personally, but each to their own.

I'd call up deadbolt and order a TDO5-18G p&p'd with some 650cc injectors, a fuel pump, and the biggest damn TMIC you can find (probably TXS or APS)

I agree with mosc.

With that being said, a meth/water injection kit will give you even more gains, and with a higher level of safely. I don't know if I'm allowed to post the link, but aquamist is having a group buy on their hfs-1 water injection kit. They give you the option of upgrading to the hfs-5, which is one of the best kits out there.

You should already be able to take on the new mustangs with stage 2. Stock for stock they are about the same as the WRX (high 13's). I took a convertable one in my 06 with only spt exhuast by about 1.5 cars. Like the the others said: bigger turbo, bigger IC, more fuel

i agree with mosc, since you have the 2.5 motor you'll have no problem spooling an 18G, or even a 20G if ya wanna get crazy...the new gt's are fast cars, and who leaves a gt stock? your gonna needmore than stage two and quick feet

+1 for the 18g or 20g, specially since you have the 2.5, that should take care of most lightly moded evos, mustangs and gtos(i have a 16g and beat a gto pretty bad at the track on friday as well as an evo with full exhaust, intake and a reflash)

when you guys say bigger turbo, ic and injectors, is that safe and can run on stock pistons or we need to change stuff in the engine too??

when we say upgrade the turbo we are not suggesting something as dramatic as a rotated mount GT40R turbo kit, which is capable of well over 500 HP...the 16G and the 18G in my opinion are street turbos that will give you the power to take most cars at the track, however not compramise driveability so in turn, your internals...cams, pistons, etc will not be harmed unless you consistently beat the piss out of your car

also, as far as turbos go, you need to decide what application you are using your mchine for, for instance, for autoX, you would want a turbo for low end grunt that a has a relatively quick spool up time, like myself, I choose TD05 18G, but on the other hand, if your are dragging the car, then maybe a TD06 20G. I am a big fan of mitsubishi turbos, which is why I keep referring to the G series of turbos. My sugestion to you or anyone else though(hopefully Mosc will agree with me) is to decide from the VERY beginning waht you are trying to do with your car then upgrade the shit from there. If you just start throwing benign parts on your car, sure you will add SOME power, but it might not be where you want it to be and a lot of money would have been spent is search of more horsepower, but in HP that is not usable in your desired application.

Wow, it can turn well too?

autoX (autocross) is a sanctioned race usually set up in a parking lot with a coned off course then there are time trials to see whose the fastest. You will rarely leave 2nd gear and suspension set-up is very important for good times in this type of racing.
