EVO X Stage 2 Dyno Tuning

Just to recap again.  The ECU Tuning device here is not a supported item and again this info is provided to show customers how we strive to be the first to tune these cars and get more experience than any other tuner. Time to put that exhaust to the test!  Last time we left the EVO X progress we had a nice and shiny turboback exhaust all done and awaiting testing. To refresh your memory see our page located HERE. Here [...Continue Reading...]

First to Tune a 2008 EVO X, Stage 1

All these results were done using a product we no longer support, or care to even mention the brand name!  This info is just showing we were first to the EVO X tuning game… This test was done on our 08 EVO X shop car. The important things to note is that this is a totally stock 2008 EVO X. The only thing done is the Unichip and our custom tune. Our first dyno results showed the EVO making very [...Continue Reading...]

2008 EVO X-POSED

When we got our 08 STI, we went over the whole car and pointed out all the differences, and made comments about the changes.  Now that our EVO is in our hands, it gets a turn under the microscope.  PERRIN as a company was a little unsure of what to do about the EVO old and new.  There isn€™t many of them compared to STI€™s and the customer base is very different that the Subaru guys.  There were already some [...Continue Reading...]

2008 PERRIN STI, Stage 2 tune

We were the first to dyno the 08 STI, we were the first to bring you intimate pics of the car, and we were the first to tune the AccessPORT on the STI!  In stage 1 form (bone stock car), with some initial testing we did, we got great gains!  We saw roughly 40ft-lbs and 35WHP with nothing other than an ECU reflash!  Its not very often that you can get those types of gains from a bolt on/flash on. [...Continue Reading...]

2008 WRX Stage 1 Test and Tune

I learned a few things from my vaction in Maui.  If you dont own a GM product, you must live there, Gas is $4.10 for premium, Mike D from GreenDay shops at the ABC stores, WRX/STI are very rare, Legacys do not exist, Chevy Cobalts have launch control,(good for make it actualy go fast), only 1 road with 55mph limit, all the rest were 35 or 25, and Poi is nasty! After 10 days off, its time to get back to work!  While we made [...Continue Reading...]

2008 WRX GT3071R Dyno Test and Tune

Besides building a fast and cool looking 2008 WRX, we had a goal to showcase a turbo that I think should be the most popular for the normal guy thinking of a turbo kit for his 2.5L Turbo motor. The GT3071R!  This turbo gets overlooked quite often.  It easily makes 350WHP on an STI, and on race fuel/Water injection 400WHP can also be had easily.  The GT3076R (the more popular turbo) is also good for these numbers, but can easily [...Continue Reading...]

2008 WRX Hatch Build Up

It€™s a love hate relationship with any new model of car that comes out.  You either love it, or hate it, but eventually it grows on you.  I personally love the hatchback look from the side, and front, but the back is a little scary.  But a few simple things can fix that.  Getting rid of the chrome parts for painted or black out parts is a huge part of the formula.  Then lower it a bit with some nice [...Continue Reading...]
