Seriously Chan with all that carbon fiber you must have money to burn. I have learned to not judge anyone for their mods so go for it. Maybe in a few years I would go for a hood and a new wing for the hatch.

Ok so I am highly considering buying an access port. I have a 2012 wrx, is there a pretty significant notice in power increase? You guys think it's worth it? My only mod at this point is spt exhaust ( which I know does nothing). Also any warranty concerns for anyone? (I realize it doesn't void the whole warranty) anyone had the dealer give them any grief? I'm good friends with the service manager, I thought about bouncing the idea off him. Thanks guys sorry if this has been discussed I started reading all of the posts but there are to many pages.

If you are actually good friends with the guy you should defiantly run it by him. Not sure about cobb stage 1, but torqued performance stage 1 is quite noticable.

People always seem get butt hurt when I mention open source, but it will give you the same tune as AP for 1/3rd the price(with a torqued performance tune which people pay $85 for on top of AP). You can get a DP, tactrix and TP stage 2 tune for around the same price as just an AP.

On the downside you don't get launch control or flat foot shifting.(there is patch but is sketchy) You also can't change maps w/o a laptop and you don't have AP to use as a gauge.

Worth at least a little research into IMO, I'm sure cobb stage 1 is decent though, the gains look alright.

Did you install yourself with a lap top? Is it difficult or should I take it to a shop for that?

Also can you save your stock map so you could go backwards if you wanted?

Honestly flat foot shifting and launch control scare me seem like its pretty hard on the car IMO.

So Cobb and torqued performance stage 1 are going to be similar from what I can see. I'm only looking to go stage 2 either way tops.

Its very simple. When you download the TP map you get step by step directions with it. You install romraider and ecuflash on your laptop. You just plug your tactrix into the OBD2 port and USB end into your laptop. You download and save your stock ecu image with ECUflash and then upload your new map to the ECU. Then you can datalog with romraider. Its a bit more bulky to have a laptop in your car but the end results are the same tuning wise.

I would read up on it and make sure you are comfortable with it.

there are also other canned tunes you can buy, or you can just get a protune with AP or tactrix

I just checked the thread engagement on the stock studs and it's only 8 turns, so I don't think even 5mm spacers would be safe.

I would agree. If someone is trying to space out the stock wheels you would need more than 5mm anyway tbh. And extended studs like this

Right, but I figured for $30 I could space them a little bit if the stock studs allowed it. I am not a fan of bolt on spacers and it seems that putting on studs that are 15-20mm longer than stock is really difficult.

I can't figure out the math in my head. If I have 8.5 turns right now, how much would a 5mm spacer reduce that by?

haha Yeah, you're right, only joking. I don't love my WRX enough for that. I'd just go base STI sedan, strip it, THEN do CF parts all over with lighter wheels. With shipping to Alaska all that would be over $15k easy. Do able, but not preferable for here.

What kind of horsepower would you guys expect with a 2012 wrx with a tbe, Cobb sf intake, and AP with a protune? I think that's as far as I want to go.

Obviously it's not going to be exact just rough idea or if anyone has done it.

probably 270-280whp 300+ lb ft give or take, depending on the dyno. cobb has a dyno database, take a look

the noise gets old and it sounds like a broken vacuum when you are climbing a long hill..lol. Thinking about selling mine.

Does anybody know if returning to the stock map with OpenSource maintains the stock CID/checksum in the same manner that umarrying an AP does?

Same here, with Cobb "catted" downpipe and Nameless axleback. Looking at around high 280's to maybe very low 290's at about 19-20psi.

We don't have AWD dynos in Alaska. It's a sore subject, don't ever post the question in AKIC. haha

It was based off the opensource from my tuner while on the road and from last year, before I had the SF Intake, only downpipe and tune. After the intake and tune we didn't do a road pull because it was winter.

I've been trying to keep the mods tasteful and conservative while on a budget. I already hate the WRX and trying not to hate it more through improper mods and tunes.
