find a decent tuner, give them your keys and your wallet and leave it with em,,,,, lol

500bhp is alot of power so will need to have a very good spec to get it there. Full custom engine build etc, prob nocking on 20k+

Yep, also way beyond the capability of most drivers.

it's very easy to say i want X power, but its a very different thing to have it and pay for it.

 

your talking £1500 for the turbo, £2000 for the ecu and thats only two things, full engine rebuild for it will mean rods, pistons, head studs, crank bearings, fuel system upgrade, etc etc etc

If it's a jdm sti they are semi forged and can handle 450hp ish max (pending on condition and supporting mods ) I think the uk versions are normally good for 400hp but you'd be better off googling that to confirm.

At least you'll have the 6 speed box and R180 hubs and diff as standard, which will handle your 500 hp target .

So I'd imagine that with a fmic ,turbo, bigger injectors and uprated clutch should you should see 420hp ish .

After that you'd probably need bigger brakes and a stronger deck type block with uprated internals for reliable 450hp + .

If it's not broke .....upgrade it 😊

Sorry I thought it was a 04 sti .

In that case the engine is probably at its reliable limit and the 5 speed 04 box is normally pushed at 400hp.

So you'll have to add £1.5 k for a 6 speed conversion kit , £3k for engine parts/ stronger block , £2.5k for turbo /injectors /fmic and the cost of the ecu .

Unfortunately that's without any labour whatsoever and you can expect just the engine build labour to be £3k +

If it's not broke .....upgrade it 😊
