Maybe somewhere down the road and I believe Dillion has...?

Cmac13-I've heard a slight gain in torque and some people's mpg's actually increased. Add it to the list! Lol.

I picked up a used n/a accessport a few months back and am just running the stage 2 map meant for stock intake and exhaust with the aggressive throttle mapping feels more responsive and a little quicker

I don't know what kind of stock they keep, but they always seem to have a lot of tires on hand.

I rolled in originally to get their opinion on a set of tires that have some sidewall damage. Turned out that the damage was too severe so we started talking about getting a new set of tires. I originally was just going to drive up to DBT and get a set of Federals for just under $400. Steve offered up a set of better tires (can't remember which kind) for $400 and I liked the deal, but I didn't have the cash at the time. Few days later, I got the funds and gave them a call. They didn't have the original tires anymore but he did have the Toyos so I went for it and scheduled an appointment to get them installed.

Kind of an odd sale. But they guys are cool and they do outstanding work at reasonable prices.

I will admit the $50 off to get catless UEL from rallisport does sound appealing. But will inspection be a pain that is the question. And there are rumors of increased torque Sounds appealing would like to hear more. About a week away from purchasing rallisport UEL's

+1 that's my concern, if I throw them on I would have to swap them out when I need to go for a etest which would be a pain and on top of that it would throw some CELs and it would probably be insanely loud, but I still want them

You just missed out Discount Tire Direct's eBay store sale... $100 off when purchase a set of 4 tires! It expires on last Sun. I just bought a set for my sis-in-law. They had the same deal on Labor Day as well & I think they'll have another sale for Black Friday.

From there, Americas tire mounts, and balances.
I doubt they got them from Tire Rack since they are competitors.
Plus, Tire Rack always charges shipping but no tax. Discount Tire Direct (same co. as America's Tire) does offer FREE shipping & no tax as well.

I've bought from both & I'll just get whichever is cheaper. Tire Rack ships faster... like receive them on next day cause they have warehouse in Reno, NV. Discount Tire Direct takes about 4-5 days shipping.

Your only luck would be getting rallysportdirect Uel headers, lightweight crank pulley, aggressive cams, and then a tune-probly around 2k after installing everything.
My bad Dillon! Lol, you can blame autocorrect -_-

Not much you can do as after market performance parts for n/a is pretty small. And the amount of money put in may just be the same as trading in your 2.5i and getting a wrx.

But mods like light weight pulley, bushings, and a n/a Cobb acessport (given your manual transmission) Will help you gain a few numbers, but the butt dyno should say more.

Honestly, there's not much you can do. Personally id keep the money and get a wrx, because if you are looking for bigger gains, turbo is practically the only option. You could get an Avo turbo kit which puts you at 3grand to put onto your 2.5i. From there who knows if it Will pass inspection or throw codes.

Yes, but don't do it unless you have supporting mods. Everyone hates on the S-techs here for apparent reasons.

I keep hearing of aggressive cam gears, but I can't find any thing other than the headers and crank pulley. What company makes cam gears for our cars?

The Cobb website only offers this for their turbo models. Is it not even worth it then?

The NA AccessPort has been discontinued. You'll have to find one used. It would be easier to find a tuner who uses Ecutek or Romraider.
