Talking Just got a 2017 STi!!

Hello everybody!

Just wanted to say hello, and I'm excited to own a silver 2017 Sti! I have come from a long line of tuners, starting with a 350z, then to an Evo X, an FR-s, and now the STi. Something just clicked with this car- I fell in love during the test drive like I've never experienced with a car, and I'm so excited for it to arrive on Tuesday!

Anyways, I'll be lurking and reading up on the little tricks of the STi trade, but I'll come back and post pictures when I get the car I'll do a detailed review of it compared to the frs and evo as well for anyone that might be interested in that sort of thing. See you soon!

Peace,
~Turbo

Default Re: Just got a 2017 STi!!

So I am picking up my car at 4:00pm today.

Just wondering if I should go with the 'granny mode' breakin period or instead try something along the lines of varying loads at varying rpms for brief periods, and one or two pulls to about 500 below redline at some point before 1,000 miles.

I drove my 350z like a prius and it turned out to be a turd. I drove my Evo like a granny (ish) and it had the exact same compression on each piston (tech was amazed), but felt so much slower than the other gsr's before the mods. I drove my Fr-s like a go kart with no rhyme or reason to how when where or why I would wot it, and it pulled like a demon...but it was not a forced induction car so idk.

Just wondering what the consensus (I know theres 50392 differing views) on this forum is for the break in period.

I intend to downshift and seat the rings, and go into boost under 4k every now and then after the engine is warm- and always let it cool after the drive (not for the turbo since that trick is archaic and unnecessary, but rather to just let all the components settle after a drive).

*IMPORTANT* i dont know anything about sti's...my evo had a snow, tarmac, and gravel button. This has like forty. ppl said dont go into s+ or d- lock slip vector mode.....turbo awd torque wheel break....something....

is there a setting I should avoid? You don't drive your evo in snow mode at wot during break in. Wondering if this is like that.

Anyways pics later today when I pick it up! Thanks in advance for the comments, just want to feel the consensus these days. Yes I did search. I want to hear how you broke your car in and why + how its running.

Thanks!

There are no SI drive mode selection restrictions....it only changes the throttle mapping...

As for the DCCD....any mode you would use it in on dry pavement is fine. Throw it in Auto (-) and you're good to go. That's probably the mode you'll want to drive it in most of the time anyway.

As for the traction mode...I turn it all the way off (hold the button down for a couple seconds) every time I drive since rolling off the dealers lot.

Congrats on the new ride! Youll enjoy it!

I took it easy in the city for the first 200 miles... drove it on the freeway to LA from Phoenix (450mi) and putted around town there until I had about 800 on it... Then went straight to the santa monica mountains and pounded her through Decker Canyon from Westlake to PCH. The brakes stunk lol but other than that shes been good ever since (19,400mi now).

Just change your oil around 3k mi.

Good luck!

After owning several STI I can say my personal opinion, and it is just that, "my opinion", but one I can backup with actual ownership is that on the 2 STI that I followed proper Manufacturers recommended break-in procedure, they never pulled as hard as my friends who drove them hard from day 1, and the other 2 I have had and I drove hardish from day 1 confirmed this for me. they never had issues compared to the ones I babied. I personally feel there is something about the EJ257 STI motor that if you seat it hard it runs hard and good. if you baby it, it will be that way from jump street. if you choose to run it hard from day one, just make sure you change that Factory oil right at 1000 miles or even possibly at 500 miles. Get the trash out of that oil. Anyone can flame me, but I am hoping there are some out there that can back me up on this one. Congrats on the new car. You'll Love it. Like others have said SI mode in stock tune is just a throttle sensitivity thing and a little bit of boost controlling (less boost allowed in I Mode) and DCCD Auto - mode is the best feeling mode I have found so far. As for Traction nanny mode, honestly even in fully on mode the STI is very forgiving and allows for quit a bit of shenanigans with out being truly invasive. but Trac. Mode is great for canyon carving. Fully off is great for all out Hooning. Enjoy.
