Hi Carl.

With the Prodrive Performance Pack (PPP) upgrade on your STi. You already have a "excellent" freer-flowing exhaust system, which comprises a reprogrammed ECU and exhaust.

Re: 02 bug eye sti prodrive

The ppp kit gives you around 300 bhp thats with a sports cat so the only real way to go to get extra performance through the exhaust is to get a d-catted full system and a re-map which will set you back around 1200-1500 but you will only get an extra 20 bhp, 30 if you are lucky so in my opinion it's a waste of money a standard sti is around 260 bhp so you already have an increase through the ppp exhaust and upgraded ecu of around 40 bhp. To get alot more horse power you will have to spend alot more money 2500-3000. I have a sti ppp and am in the same boat and to be honest i can't justify the money for what gains i will get..............................

Re: 02 bug eye sti prodrive

I think 300 bhp is enough really you don't need much more than that maybe 350 but anything over that is a waste and the more you tune your engine the more it is likely to go wrong, in reality most people can't exploit these cars performance anyway i know i can't. Have you driven the car yet carl because everytime i drive mine i get a smile on my face and am amazed at the power and how quick they are..........................am sure you will love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 02 bug eye sti prodrive

Pleased you like it mate i thought you would?
I never ever tire of mine everytime i drive it it's like the first day i got it it's just a great buzz to drive and that burble of the exhaust note when it ticks over or when you give it some is so addictive......................................... not to metion the shear power when that turbo starts to spool up when you put your foot down!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
