  • How Far Did We Push the Stock Block, Time to Tune the STI!

    9,870 views 1 week ago
    It has been literally 5 months in the making, I set out in January to make a goal for myself to get the car above 400 WHP. It's finally time to find out if we were able to achieve that goal. The car is tuned by Chris at Surgline tuning located in Tigard OR. I have been coming here for a few years and they have down a few tunes for me and I will continue to have them do so. We did two tunes for the car a Pump gas and Ethanol tune. While everything went smoothly there were a few hiccups on the way. The car did fail pre dyne inspection however; thank you to the shop team at Surfline for moving their lunches around to get the car on the dyno. Huge shout out to both Chris and Brandon for staying past closing to get the car wrapped up as well. I would highly suggest this shop for those in the area looking for a pro tune as well. In the next few days I will do a full engine build breakdown for those interested in following a similar set up.

    Disclaimer!
    The cat was tuned on a Mustang dyno, according to the shop if you were to take the car and place it on a dyno jet it has been seen that other dynes can read 10%-20% higher than this one does. Please keep in mind that dynos will read differently.
    If you are looking to make more reliable WHP, I HIGHLY SUGGEST getting at minimum a stage 1 or Stage 2 built block to achieve these numbers. I take full responsibility for anything that goes wrong with the engine down the road. I asked Chris to push the car past the comfort zone where the EJ Series is happy. Surgline suggests staying around the 350 WHP mark and not exceeding this and if you choose to do so please understand that you are taking the liability and the risk of doing so and it is not the tuners or shops fault.
