Here are the numbers from the tune:

I finally was able to install my COBB downpipe and get my 2011 WRX retuned. Baseline, Stage 1 and Stage 2 information is included. Stage 1 tune was done with the SPT cat back already installed. Only change since then was adding the downpipe. Tuning was done on 16" steelies and winter tires (just like the baseline and Stage 1 tune).

RomRaider log was used to create the dyno plot using Virtual Dyno. Seems that no one liked the Dynojet numbers from my last thread (HERE), so I set CF=1, which makes the Virtual Dyno read similar to COBB's dyno (LINK). Upped the smoothing to 5 to get rid of some bumps in the plots (which lowers the readings slightly).

I am really happy with the tune. Nuke kept it conservative enough that I shouldn't have to worry about my car, but still made it much, much quicker than Stage 1. The mid range pull is great! Nice big torque numbers from 3k and up. Car feels so much stronger now. The COBB downpipe also makes it sound a bit meaner

Feel free to discuss!

^ tune looks great, but might want to correct your torque specs. They should be in ft/lb not HP.

It was road tuned, so proper tires for the season are pretty much a requirement. I was lucky enough to get out when the roads were nice and dry. Yesterday (the day after the tune) we got 4" of snow, so there probably won't be another chance to tune for at least a week or two.

What did your car run stock on the road dyno? My tune is pretty conservative. I could make more power where I'm at, but I'd rather play it safe. As far as next upgrades, it will probably be all of these at once:

TMIC
BPV
Fuel Pump
Injectors
E85 Tune

Not this argument again. They look cool to me. They add minimal weight and really don't affect power at all. If you don't like the look, buy a different exhaust.

I think I got really lucky there. Had the one I wanted (black, 5 door, base model) shipped in from Indiana to Minnesota. Took less than a week

I think a PM to the person that posted the image would be the best way to find out. I would rather not have a thread-jacking image quoted within my thread.

I don't plan on lowering my car. I've made it through lots of snow and over many speed bumps, etc. No problems so far, but it definitely is the lowest point.

Wise choice, especially with the struts on the WRX. I would get the RCE / Bilstein setup, if I get a WRX that will be what I go with.

Don't let that "stanced" BS fool you.

There has already been several large snowstorms this year in MN. I have no intention on ever lowering my car due to the winters around here.

xluben,

I love your car!
If you ever want a little more power, check out torqued performance. I'm running his stage 2 map and it pulls hard as hell.

Thanks!

If I wanted more power, I could just have Nuke (my tuner) turn up the boost and add a little more timing, but I'm perfectly happy with the (conservative) tune that I have. I feel more comfortable with something custom tuned to my car than an off the shelf tune. But I do have plans for E85 (see post above), hopefully over the summer.

Don't remember what my baseline numbers were, all i know is your running more psi then i am lol. I'm at 17psi peak, although he raised my redline to 7k.
