It is rare to see a seller back up his claim of a fast car with an actual dyno plot. The 2.5 STI put down 224 horse power at the wheels which translate to roughly 300 horse power on a AWD car. This seems to be a normal number for a stock 2008 STI. There is a lot more potential to this engine with the addition of a intake, intercooler, up-pipe, exhaust, and ECU tune. However, this is a substantial upgrade from the original 2.0L engine as is and the seller has priced the car extremely reasonably.
