I'm back from the mainland!

The shop who did the initial breakin totally fucked it up, so Ive got low compression in 2 cylinders.. I didnt bother swapping out the turbo for the bigger one either.

At any rate, these aren't excuses because I really dont need any, the car did awesome.




Keep in mind this is an UNCORRECTED dynodynamics dyno. A stock STI will put down 215whp on this dyno (been proven). So assuming the same drivetrain losses, that means Im putting around 360hp out at the crank.

High 12 second daily driver, for a total cost of $17,700 including the tuning.
