2016 Subaru WRX STI – IAG Stage 2

Subaru | WRX : June 12, 2020

Jorge brought us his 2016 Subaru WRX STI to get the engine built and ready for the next steps in power!

Up first in the shop, starting with a Stage 2 short block from IAG Performance, John rebuilt the EJ257 with brand new OEM Subaru gaskets & seals, WRX STI 11mm oil pump, V2 oil pump pickup tube from IAG Performance, OEM Subaru timing components with a Blue racing belt from Gates, fasteners from ARP, cylinder 4 chamber cooling system from Getadomtune, Street Series air/oil separator from IAG Performance, HDSS clutch kit and Streetlite flywheel from Advanced Clutch Technology, all working perfectly with the existing modifications from COBB Tuning, including a TD05H-20G-8 turbocharger, front-mount intercooler system, SF air-intake system, down-pipe, and 3-port electronic boost control solenoid.

With the mechanical work wrapped in the shop, Matt strapped her down to the rollers for Vlad to perform a custom Pro Tune via COBB Tuning‘s V3 Accessport. With 93 octane in the tank and the 20G turbocharger delivering 20psi, Vlad increased the EJ257’s output to 348.43awhp & 353.45lbft! Stay tuned for E85 numbers to come!
