56whp? it'* about on par for the displacement, and tune on the car. Shops heard about him through that thread and tried to avoid giving him time as much as possible. IIRC he didn't have a MAF or something as well. I'm not sure how fuel is mapped on STI'* though..
The charge pipe was disconnected because he was showing off something in there.
It'* only a 2.2L, it'* got low compression for the OEM turbo, it'* fuel maps, and cams are turbo specific, the intake manifolds are designed for boost, and the exhaust has a HUGE restriction in the form of half a snail, still on it.
