Poor Man's PPP

Hi All,

I'm thinking of beefing my bhp up a bit and using the PPP kit as a guide and wondered if anyone had any rough BHP gains for adding this lot to an 02 STI :

Scoobyworld Sports cat downpipe,
Scoobyworld decat centre pipe, ( already running )
Racebox backbox ( already running )
Ecutek remap ?

My aim is to reach 300bhp and then i'll stop spending ( unlikely )


Is there anything else i'd need ?


Cheers

Russ

Hi Tidgy,

thanks for that, so would you expect me to hit around 300bhp without a full decat and induction, and just the sports downpipe and tek3 ?? I'm currently just running a green cotton filter.

would i need to upgrade any hoses or would the STI one be ok ?

save the money and stick with the green filter as well - you wont gain anything by going wing mount just yet. You might even find that it makes thing worse - panel filter is good for at least 350hp

depends what it is, the wing mounted typhoons are better than pannel filters cos the filter is away from the engine heat

but they can cause surge - i have a mate with an 02 STi who has been told to take the wing mount off as it is so difficult to control the surge.
The staged upgrade reported on scoobynet also had this problem. The wing mount cold air route is a bit of a red herring on newages unless going for stupid power or have a FMIC.
The design of the airbox is fine for 350+ and also draws in cold air anyway

don't see y its should cause surge if mapped correctly and air flow routed properly

anything above 300 then we normally recomend a fuel pump kit.....................adds a healthy safety margin to the fuelling system and cheap at the price

deal here;
