EVO X Prototype Turboback Exhaust Build

We have had the X for a few weeks, and in that amount of time, we have dynoed the car in stock form, and dynoed the car with a custom hardwired Unichip. Both have proven to show very good HP numbers, and this is with the stock exhaust, intake and other parts!  Like our other builds we have done, we are building the parts for this car in the direction that we expect most customers to build their car.  So […Continue Reading…]

First to Tune a 2008 EVO X, Stage 1

All these results were done using a product we no longer support, or care to even mention the brand name!  This info is just showing we were first to the EVO X tuning game… This test was done on our 08 EVO X shop car. The important things to note is that this is a totally stock 2008 EVO X. The only thing done is the Unichip and our custom tune. Our first dyno results showed the EVO making very […Continue Reading…]

Turbo Inlet Proving Time!

This is a test you will none of our competition do! We have always wanted to prove that a PERRIN turbo inlet hose was more than just a good replacement for a failed OEM part. We know it makes more power and allows the turbo to spool faster, and there are a few results online, but all these tests were done days or weeks apart. We always wanted to prove how it works and do an install within a couple hours, […Continue Reading…]

08 STI Intake Test and Tune

This test was done on our 08 STI shop car.  Before we get to far into the fun stuff, the STI is in our Stage 2 form. This means it has our twin cat downpipe, 3€ quad tip exhaust, and our Stage 2 AccessPORT tuning.  With that said we are going to show 2 tests in this article one, the PERRIN 08 intake and the PERRIN  Version 2 inlet hose. First lets explain the dyno and testing methods we are […Continue Reading…]

PERRIN Turbo Inlet Hose Evolution

The PERRIN turbo inlet hose has been one of our best selling, long standing products for many years. Since the beginning, we have made our part different than the rest in that we didn’t just make a copy of the OEM part.  We had something different in mind to make the installation of this go much easier, and also out perform other turbo inlet hoses offered by our competition. HISTORY LESSON When we got the WRX and started making parts […Continue Reading…]

2008 EVO X-POSED

When we got our 08 STI, we went over the whole car and pointed out all the differences, and made comments about the changes.  Now that our EVO is in our hands, it gets a turn under the microscope.  PERRIN as a company was a little unsure of what to do about the EVO old and new.  There isn€™t many of them compared to STI€™s and the customer base is very different that the Subaru guys.  There were already some […Continue Reading…]

2008 PERRIN STI, Stage 2 tune

We were the first to dyno the 08 STI, we were the first to bring you intimate pics of the car, and we were the first to tune the AccessPORT on the STI!  In stage 1 form (bone stock car), with some initial testing we did, we got great gains!  We saw roughly 40ft-lbs and 35WHP with nothing other than an ECU reflash!  Its not very often that you can get those types of gains from a bolt on/flash on. […Continue Reading…]

2008 PERRIN STI, First to get an AccessPORT, Stage 1

We were very lucky to get our hands on the first STI available in Oregon, and maybe anywhere in the US.  Our dealer was very reluctant to sell us the car as it was not offically released.  After we dynoed it in stock form with in hours of owning the car, we very quickly shipped the ECU out to COBB next day air.  They needed the ECU for only a few hours and we got it back in 2 days […Continue Reading…]

2008 WRX Stage 1 Test and Tune

I learned a few things from my vaction in Maui.  If you dont own a GM product, you must live there, Gas is $4.10 for premium, Mike D from GreenDay shops at the ABC stores, WRX/STI are very rare, Legacys do not exist, Chevy Cobalts have launch control,(good for make it actualy go fast), only 1 road with 55mph limit, all the rest were 35 or 25, and Poi is nasty! After 10 days off, its time to get back to work!  While we made […Continue Reading…]

40 Miles on the 08 STI and we tune it!

There is not much to brag about, but, now that i have your attention, lets see what these new STI’s put down! The first couple runs showed about what we would expect to see. Most STI’s put down about 230-240WHP, and we were right there. Same with torque, we were pretty close to what everyone sees. Few things to note, redline is 6500, not 7000. WHAT?? Well that is simple, Subaru only needed to make the 305HP mark and it […Continue Reading…]
