Hi All,

New 54 reg wrx owner. The car is purely standard apart from the pioneer double set. 

My aim is to get close to 300 - safely. Even 275 would be nice.

want it to be my love until i one day have enough shillings for a sti (light years away) 

Where do i start?

without selling my house, soul and body - which order do i go? 

And any good names in the east midlands? (Leicester)

P.s if anyone local is selling a rear sti boot wing/spoiler, link me. 

Peace and lurv.

jay

Hi and welcome. We have the same car lol. Well mines not quite standard any more. I bought the car thinking it only had a pro drive exhaust added. So far I've found out my car is not a factory ppp, but could have been added at a later date. Anyway the only differences I can see from a standard is the exhaust, maybe fuel pump, and the intercooler hoses. I've since added a cosworth panel air filter and then had it remapped and I'm currently sitting at 285bhp. So it wouldn't take too much to reach the figures you want. I trying to decided if I want to brake the 300 mark, to do this would need a bigger turbo, pink injectors, fuel pump and tbh the cost is out weighing the gain. Just bear in mind the 5 speed gear box won't be able to go much above 320-330 without causing too much strain. And also the standard turbo (td04) on a WRX will only reach 280-290. So I think I'm at my limits as is. If any part blow, I might upgrade then.

Many thanks. Any recommendations on a remap or exhaust? I called Mij in walsall, who make custom exhausts - quoted me 250 for a catback. Also want a bov, loud but not shocking to deafen anyone.

Got a very local garage to do basic stuff. What oil is recommended? 

@oilman can give you plenty of detail but here are some

As a member of the forum you can also use the discount codes.

I would use millars but have used mobil and castrol for many years with no issues. There are many opinions but as long as the oil you select has the industry standard compliance marks you shouldn't go far wrong

As for a place to go for a remap, we it depends how far you want to travel. I think scooby clinic (I've seen people recommend them) is up at chesterfield. But I'm not from your area. I'm in the southwest. I traveled to Plymouth (about 2 hours drive) for my remap and glad I went there. Have the car a good run too

My girlfriends bug is just under 280bhp. Full decat, 3inch exhaust and mapped by Scooby Clinic, thats all. Mine is around 340-350bhp. Walbro fuel pump, VF35 turbo, blue 565cc injectors, front mount intercooler, full decat 3inch exhaust and mapped by Andy Carr. He does mapping in many places and cost half as much as Scooby Clinic, I really recommend him. Also there is Duncan Graham who does mobile mapping and also really good
