What to do next?

Howzit all
I have a MY02 bugeye wrx and was wondering what to do next to get more power.
I've got a full turbo back exhaust with high flow cat, catless uppipe, cold air induction, did the fuel pump with an ecutek management. I have 155KWATW but its not enough. I managed to get a 13.6s 1/4 mile but need to go faster.
I live in AUS and the V8's are getting the better of me.
I appreciate any input.
Cheers

The Holden and Ford men need putting back in thier place matey

Get bigger injectors.... big turbo... front mounted intercooler and ensure to keep the car off boost until you have a re-map to ensure you dont detonate your engine

If you dont mind to much 'lag' go for a TD05 20G turbo, with the above modifications and re-map you should get close to 400 bhp and about 360lbs plus of torque, the boost will start at about 3600 revs with that turbo

If you want something a big less laggy... go for TD05 18G turbo Boost from 3200 and better maners off boost than 20g IMO

The front mounted intercooler will help keep the 'charged' air temp low... colder charged air = more oxygen = more burn = more torque in each power stroke of the pistons = stronger acceleration

The bigger injectors will allow the mapper to 'turn up the wick' to the full potential of the supporting mods

Beyond this... you will then need to look at internal engine modifications

Hope this helps... good luck and let us know how it go's
