How Much Power I Got?

Hello Guys,
Where I am living no one of the workshop, has the machine (dyno??? I guess?) to verify the actual power of a 4 wheel drive car, there is only one, but it is only for 2 wheel drive.
Now my question is, how much power (approx) I have got in my car?
She is a WRX my 2002, with the following modifications:
1) TD05 16 G Turbo working at 1.0 bar max press
2) Full Prodrive exhaust system,
3) Eku tek remap
Original, she was 218hp, now how much she is delivering, more or less?
Any idea?
Thank you
Max

Re: How Much Power I Got?

not sure as different turbo to me but if you add a 3 port boost solenoid you'll see a good improvement but it will need a tweak to the map for it. will allow 1.3 bar boost though instead of the 1 bar you have. Duncan (dynamix) will be able to advise you best.

The fact you are on the original injectors is probably holding it back but 1 bar on a 16g is about the 280 mark as said above.

Dont know what fuel quality is like over there but that may be a factor too.

Thank you Dynamix.!!!!
Do you recomend I upgrade the injectors? If so, which one do you recomend?
Regarding fuel, I use the Shell V Power, sometimes I add octane booster additives, but not always.

Thank you Dinamix, for your input.

If so, which injectors I should use?
Usually I use Shell V Power, sometimes I use also octane booster additives, but not always.

Tidgy, which kind of clutch I should buy to sustain the 280HP? (without spending a fortune and without impairing my left leg in pressing too hard)???

Re: How Much Power I Got?

if you havent already. change your plugs to keep it safe. go up one on the heat range.(if your using 7s at the min go to 8s) the higher the number the colder the running temp. NGKbr8eix work a treat in them..

Re: How Much Power I Got?

8's would be the wrong choice at that power level IMO.

Have to say your clutch did feel very nice. Quite a bit lighter than the Helix organic I've just had fitted.
