Reliability: OTS Stage2 vs. Custom Tune
Hi all. I DID search, but didn't really find anything helpful to my question. For all the people waiting to flame me...
1) sorry if I didn't type the right words in to get the post you're going to link below
2) I know custom tunes > OTS, but does this translate to reliability?
I drive a 05 WRX with the Cobb Stage 2 OTS map with a TurboXS TBE (EDIT: With a high flow cat). I've been running it for about a year. My car is about at 75k miles.
Locally (I live in the South) we don't have a huge Subaru community. However, our small community has managed to get a Denver, CO tuner who has plenty of experience and his own business doing this, to come down and do a group tune. I plan on jumping in on this and am getting the tune and a EBCS to accomodate the changes in boost.
My question is should I be more afraid in terms of reliability now that I may be putting down more power? Generally speaking, are OTS tunes worse on reliability than custom tunes, despite power gains?
Saying this, should I ask for a more conservative tune (though I am looking for conservative anyways) specifically? I am mainly looking for the faster spool and maybe a little more power, but can't risk a motor failure until next year [when I graduate college].
Thanks for any insightful input or testimonials.
