Which is why you're about as intelligent as him. I'll tell you what. Get yourself a new sti. Tune it to 21.5 psi with zero mods on it. I'll give you 5k if it lasts all year daily driving it and hitting boost not just driving like a granny. You're just as bad of an internet talker as he is.

first of all i wouldn't buy a new sti.... why? because it got smoked by a v6 mustang.... 2nd. You would have to turn the injector flow rate up to compensate for the extra boost. Yes it will work.

Ah damn. I guess all the Sti owners and tuners are suckers then. Just think, because you said you can do it that means it's safe. You ever think of becoming a tuner? You could be a millionaire....

LOL. 92awdtsi is 100% correct. You sir, are severely lacking in knowledge on the topic you are discussing. I'm not really sure why you're arguing, when you admitted yourself you don't even know how much boost a custom tune adds. If you don't even know that, how can you be so sure that a stock STi can't hold 21.5 psi? I'll give you a hint: there are 2.0L WRX guys running upwards of 20 psi on the stock td-04 midget snail with impressive results. Of course the turbo is operating WAY outside of it's efficiency range, but it works and makes power. IIRC there are a couple guys running 11s on the stock turbo.

Just stop it already dude. You're not doing anyone any favors. Especially the level-headed and mature subaru owners among us.

That said, as an unabashed subaru fanboi, I'm am extremely saddened by this news. Subaru really dropped the ball completely in 08, and it had been in the midst of a fumble ever since bringing the STi to the states.

Subaru gained an enormous amount of popularity in the states when they introduced the wrx. At the time, there was nothing even close to it's price range that could come close to beating it in any performance category. Then as other companies started coming out with competition, subaru stopped improving the platform, while basically doing nothing other than styling changes between 04-present.

The current STi has the same exact engine and transmission that the 04s did, but the body styling has been changed 3 times. While all the other car companies have been busy playing catch up, subaru has been using that time figuring out how to make their line-up as bland as possible.

You make me sad, subaru.

You stated mature but you didn't state where you said you could read and comprehend. Yes with cars with the appropriate mods on the stock turbo can push 21 psi. I was never debating that. I know plenty of guys on stock turbo's and a stock block doing so. I stated 100 percent stock which means stock exhaust that it would be a huge risk running that kind of psi. Your boy there claimed it could be done only because his dsm was able to push a certain psi with a 2.0l with a tune and a full exhaust.

Hate on me to hate on me but don't just throw out information without backing it up. Please show me where someone has continually ran 21 or above psi safely on a 100 percent show room stock sti and I will admit that I was wrong. As I stated if this were the case your boy would be tuning cars because I sure as hell haven't seen it unless modded appropriately.

The amount of boost your pushing is not the only factor determining how much power your gonna make.

Sure you can tune an STi to hit 21 psi, but your not gonna be running alot of timing. Once you hit a certain point you have to sacrifice one for the other.

I already admitted I am not a tuner....that being said I have never heard of a 100% stock sti running 21lbs for a long period of time without causing damage somewhere. It's easy for someone like you or your friends to say yes stock sti's can run 21 lbs of boost safely for a decent period of time with no issues. Me on the other hand have not seen this but all you magical internet wannabe tuners claim it's possible. Since this is new information to me I'm asking to see proof of this. So far none has been provided just a lot of lol'ing no facts.

I realized my favorite part about my subaru compared to it's FWD or RWD competitors on the way to work today... I can enjoy my car all year round and actually look forward to driving in the snow.

SO TAKE THAT!! :p

Add in the fact that I love snowboarding and need to be out on the road in the worst weather we get if I want to enjoy riding when conditions are the best and there's just no other choice for me but a subaru.

That said, if I lived in So Cal or somewhere that didn't ever see snow I'd definitely have something RWD for my daily.
