2015 STI and WRX Dyno Time

STI Dyno Session Pretty much every tuner in the world thinks the 2015 STI is the same old boring EJ25 engine and that it’s going to tune the same and make the same power. Well I hate to say it, but they’re all wrong (as was I)! Our initial dynoing of the 2015 STI showed something very interesting. It made more power than all previous STI’s. I’m not talking about a couple WHP, but more like 20 Wheel HP at […Continue Reading…]

Jeff's 2008 STI For Sale

Normally, when one of our shop cars goes up for sale, we just sell it the way it sits. However, for this car I am going to try something different. The buyer will be able to build the car to the specifications they want. That means, starting with a base car with a base price, then allowing the customer to build it up with a few options.  Whatever stage the car ends up, it can be dyno tuned and given […Continue Reading…]

PERRIN STI Equal Length Header

Updated from July 2010 post with new pics and new data! When Subaru released the Version 8 STI in Japan we noticed how they moved to a twin scroll turbo and equal length exhaust manifold. This is what inspired us to make our first header for the WRX/STI! Would taking the equal length design of this JDM header and adapting it to fit our US cars actually make a difference in power? Would it spool worse?  How would the sound […Continue Reading…]

BigTube Equal Length Header

A new part brought to you by….. you!   Over the last few years our Equal Length Header has been one of our most popular and most loved parts we have made.  From the beginning we choose a perfect size tube for the primaries which produced more power and quicker turbo response compared to any other header out there.   This was proven first by us, then by customers on forums and other shops. Even though its been a  huge […Continue Reading…]

08 STI Intake Test and Tune

This test was done on our 08 STI shop car.  Before we get to far into the fun stuff, the STI is in our Stage 2 form. This means it has our twin cat downpipe, 3€ quad tip exhaust, and our Stage 2 AccessPORT tuning.  With that said we are going to show 2 tests in this article one, the PERRIN 08 intake and the PERRIN  Version 2 inlet hose. First lets explain the dyno and testing methods we are […Continue Reading…]

PERRIN Turbo Inlet Hose Evolution

The PERRIN turbo inlet hose has been one of our best selling, long standing products for many years. Since the beginning, we have made our part different than the rest in that we didn’t just make a copy of the OEM part.  We had something different in mind to make the installation of this go much easier, and also out perform other turbo inlet hoses offered by our competition. HISTORY LESSON When we got the WRX and started making parts […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…]

40 Miles on the 08 STI and we tune it!

There is not much to brag about, but, now that i have your attention, lets see what these new STI’s put down! The first couple runs showed about what we would expect to see. Most STI’s put down about 230-240WHP, and we were right there. Same with torque, we were pretty close to what everyone sees. Few things to note, redline is 6500, not 7000. WHAT?? Well that is simple, Subaru only needed to make the 305HP mark and it […Continue Reading…]
