Default Torqued Performance and Tactrix Review (2012 WRX)

I bought a used 2012 wrx sedan at 20k miles and put another 20k miles on before I got tired of a jerky feeling during 1st and 2nd with some WOT hesitation in 3rd.

I flashed to stage 1 using Tactrix after saving my current map, which is incredibly easy for anyone with even the slightest of technical abilities. Make sure engine isn't running, but your power is on when switching the map. Your Tactrix connector will glow different colors when you plug it in and the port is accessed conveniently below the steering wheel.

Logging was just as easy. I performed a few WOT pulls from 2500 rpms in 3rd gear and sent them off to Eric (please remember to perform your pulls in a safe environment). He sent me a revision very quickly. Make sure engine is running when you begin setting your logging parameters. Eric's instructions will tell you specific points to log, and RomRaider's logger will display these options in full when the engine is running. If this isn't your first rodeo, most of the aspects you need to log are fairly obvious.

Now we're looking solid, but I'm going to get some more mileage on this map and send logs back after 200 miles per his recommendation.

I just wanted to say the service, tune and setup of this whole thing was incredibly smooth (like my car's current powerband). I would HIGHLY recommend Torqued Performance Stage 1 + Tactrix on a stock wrx. It makes the car a better daily driver and allows solid power when you ask for it.

Should I seek any future upgrades, I won't turn anywhere else for a tune.

Less than half the price of the Cobb AccessPort and excellent customer service. If you have a laptop, there's no reason not to try the Tactrix + TP tune.

Props to Eric @ TP, he reviewed my logs and sent revisions within the day I sent them.

The Tactrix cable is also an awesome little piece of hardware. Keep in mind that you'll need ECUflash and RomRaider. Both are free downloads and easy to find.

ECUflash for replacing the map and RomRaider for logging. Don't have them both running at once.
