Default Stage 2 and valet mode question

Has anyone ran into a problem being stage 2 and using valet mode? I am about to valet my car for a few days and I'm kinda nervous about it so I want to use my valet mode but the map notes say it's only for a stock vehicle...

My car: 2007 WRX: SPT intake, invidia catless DP, HKS catback (restrictor pill has been swapped for the 07 catless boost spiking issue).

Any help would be appreciated

The way the valet map works is it just moves the rev limiter to 2.5K RPM. Other than that it is just like using a stock map. Using it for a few days wouldn't be too bad, especially if they just park it and bring it back to you. Don't stress it too much. People use the stock map with those same parts and their cars don't explode after three days.

The easy fix: Just run it. It won't blow up.

The good fix: use access tuner or romraider to build your own valet map. Just move the rev limiter down. I want to know if there is a way to rescale the throttle position sensor. I doubt it.

The best fix: If you feel uncomfortable dooing that, have cobb or any tuner build you a valet map taylored to your car.

Thanks Pearl. It's only for a couple of nights and I think I will just put it into Valet mode and not stress it. It should only be going a few hundred feet from the front of the hotel into their garage that is under the building. I just don't trust anyone with my car.

Yea, you'll be fine. I run an aggressive protuned map and I flash the valet mode anytime I drop the car off to the body shop or to get an alignment. No problems at all.
