So we decided to do some testing.

We were curious as to how much power the Crosstrek is really making. We were also curious as to how much "power loss" there is, if any, with the beefier Method/KO2 setup.

Im not going to post the results right away. There will be a video coming out with all the info hopefully soon on my buddy Blake's YT ch.
But, I want you all to guess how the car did, and what difference (if any) the wheels made!
I will update post #2 with the results once the video is out.

2018 Crosstrek (Premium model)

Time for what everyone has been waiting for!

Results are in, and they were surprising!

Stock wheels/tires put down.... 141whp/131wtq

Methods with KO2s put down... 127whp/122wtq

There was a loss of about 14 whp and about 9 wtq

THAT IS CRAZY! This could mean a combination of things...

1) Subaru UNDERRATES the engine like crazy
B) Subaru has figured out AWD components that work amazing together with little drivetrain loss
#) Combination of both?


Here is the Dyno chart. Stock wheels/tires are the solid line and dotted is with Methods/KO2s.

What's awesome about this is that it shows the Crosstrek has damn near peak torque EVERYWHERE. Power increased through the entire range as well.

Needless to say, we were all super surprised! The fact that it put that much down to start was amazing and the fact that the aftermarket wheels/tires ate up that many pony points. All and all, it was a fun experiment!

Here's the video!

We also weighed one of the OEM and one of the methods.

I compared a number for OEM I found online to me weighing a method with an old bathroom scale. So not too sure how accurate either of those numbers were.

Unfortunately I dont remember what the numbers were, but they should be in the video lol. :( :p

111 AWHP on stock setup is what I'm guessing.

We are all eagerly awaiting the results...

Just a guess. The Method 501/Yoko Geo AT/S combo on my car is noticeably lighter than the stock wheel/tire combo.
What size tire are you running?

Since mine are larger than stock, they do weight more.

Ill be posting up results as soon as the video drops!

He posted his video from him BMW E30 results today, so im hoping mine will be soon! :)
