@dangle- honestly even though I'm not a fan of the wing, your 2.5i looks clean. Keep up the good work.
Well said, its not what you said its how you said it. Came off as prickish. If your not into modding your car, there's tons of "just fix it threads" don't just chime in to crap on others.

Well ive been in my friends 11 wrx and lemme tell you hitting boost is just great lol puts a smile on my face every time.

@sellars21 outbackdreams wrx is a 2013 white hatch.

Yeah haha, i drove a 09 wrx with a cai, open downpipe and straight pipe after.

Ooh man! Lol it sounds like a monster, you can hear the turbo spooling even when your not boosting. And if you are boosting you will either shat in your pants or cry tears of joy Lol

That's why my next car is a 09ish wrx

You can either buy the maps for him or you can do a road tune/ a dyno tune with him. He travels throughout the east coast and it is his primary job. Hes done well enough that he has purchased a GTR and plenty of mods for it.

Now go ahead and flame away for me being honest about what I think.

Thank you very much Dillon. We still need to get together sometime this season.

2013 SWP, no suspension or performance mods yet. More aesthetic mods, like hellas, foglights, and a massive wing for herra downforce made from cardboard.

So you put an sti spoiler on your spoiler so you can get downforce while you downforce? interesting.

Are you sure these cars aren't actually what they are?
If so, I'd like you to go tell them to the face that their car is rice while recording it on video.

I did a road tune with him because he lives in CT. My buddies are good friends with him so we see him a good amount of times throughout the year. VERY affordable price. I wont say the numbers online without him knowing..but I will say that is a little higher than the price of a short shifter for a road tune.

Interesting is the etune and Dyno tune the same tune? I live in Philly atm but I would totally drive up if there is a difference.

There is plenty of room for improvement over the stock tune. Just dont expect like your going stage 2 with a turbo car lol

I'm not entirely sure how the etune works but thats a set map. With the road tune, he actually plugs into the computer of your car and can read what is going on. Its more specific for your application with the road tune. He basically plugs into your car, you go on a drive together and make a few runs..he ll make a few adjustments and you will do a few more runs. He can adjust it to whatever you want. Pure Genuis IMO. (and thats with having ECS and EFI in the same state as us.
