What a beautiful car and it did not disappoint on the dyno. We were limited on both pump and race case so we just made a quick tune on pump and Hydramist making 506 whp before running out of fuel injectors.

We switched to a Q16/Pump/Hydramist fuel combinations allowing me to tune up to 624 whp before running out of fuel injector. When we switch to larger 1600cc fuel injectors we should be able to get another 30 psi on pump gas and probably another 60 whp on race fuel.

GT52 + Hydra 2.6 + Hydramist + Q16 = 475 whp / 534 wtq

Built by World One Performance, Phil traveled to the Pacific Northwest to tune this beast of an 07 STI.  Utilizing a number of Element Tuning products, including a GT52 turbo, Hydra EMS 2.6, and Hydramist, the car was tuned with Q16 race gas to a powerful 475 whp and 534 wtq.  This is a full 75 whp above what a GT52 typically makes on pump gas, which instantly put a smile on the customer’s face.  For more information on this build, please see World One Performance’s blog here:
