Thanks! It just goes to show how capable the STI still is with light modifications. Granted, I spent countless hours on this tuneView attachment 63857
I think those numbers are great for a mechanically stock STI. I would say perfect for a street car. I'm glad your posting this data because I have a hard time relating how changes to a stock platform relates to a real world driving experience. For example, "My STI put down 330 WHP and 350lbs of TQ", I can't relate that to anything but other peoples dyno numbers, but I can relate changes to 0-60 times.
I'd love to see one of these big box automotive media outlets or even a vendor (like Cobb) take a stock STI and run it against a modified STI at the different "stages" and capture the type of data your capturing.
My 5-60 mph has also improved quite a bit:
COBB Stage 1: 5.73
My tune: 5.16
Having a downpipe (stage 2) would help improve this metric as the main enemy here is turbo lag.
