Some napas will. I know the one on greenfield by state fair will but thats not waukesha. I've had 2 of them turned there without a problem. I'm not sure if they do it there or take it someplace.

sup guys getting a '13 wrx on Oct 9th, I wanted to get a tune for it rather quickly and just need some suggestions from you guys on what to do. I have heard cobb was a safe tune but many experience a knock and Cobb isn't the best at helping people out, they just say try a different one. I was looking at torque performance which seems like a good option?

Also do any of you know a place I could get my roof vinyl'd ?

Who is torque performance?
You can get a Cobb map and log the car. See if it's knocking. If so, get a custom tune. Pretty simple.
It will take a little time for open source to support the 2013's.

a open source tuner they have a website. You guys use cobb and if so hows your experience. Also '13 vs '12 should be identical

I'm sure Synergy Tuning could do a simple stage 1 tune for you with open source. I always recommend a real tune, not an e-tune.
The ROM ID will be different for 13, so the RR community just needs to populate it since the tables might be slightly different.

Awesome that you're getting a '13! Get to reading there is a lot of info on here. the more informed you are the better. i can't tell you how many people i've seen buy all these parts without really knowing how they are going to affect (usually hurt) their cars.

what other parts are you planning on putting on? or are you just doing stg 1 tune with no new parts? i've heard a lot of people say don't bother with a custom tune for stg 1 though it would be cheaper than a cobb AP.

about the vinyl i've heard a lot of people mention a guy named Gino. his email is: teamgileto@gmail.com

thanks guys much appreciated. Not new to cars attached is my old GTI. Just planning on a tune, tint, vinyld roof. I got away from spending all my money on cars awhile back since I have a family now so no extra cash lying around. With VW you had to buy a company tune system like cobb but it was APR, etc... I like the fact that subies have a better open source platform.

Im new to the area but not new to the site. I live in Waukesha and picked up a '12 swp sti hatch 4 months back. I rent but do have a double bay garage and plenty of tools to help work on cars. Im a hobbyist but have done some things. Built motors big boost etc... This is my first sti and starting the mods kind of slow. She has a little over 4k on the clock now. I have the mxp exhaust and some wheels on order. Going for an aggressive fitment. 275 35 18 all season contis. Anyways Im always up to lend a hand and some garage space if someone needs help knocking out some work. Message me anytime.

Hey Brandon I'm in Waukesha too. I might take you up on that
I highly recommend a tune for your 2012 STI. The stock tune is dangerous and is prone to knocking.

Been thinking about that but I'm worried that wilde will screw me on my warranty. I don't trust the service manager. I've thought about cobb and open source. I hear we have an all wheel drive dyno here in Waukesha

They'd have to prove that the tune caused the problem to deny a warranty claim.
Yep there's an AWD dynojet in Waukesha

What are your opinions on open source vs cobb. The one feature about the cobb that I love is being able to real time tune. I tuned an evo 9 with open source and it was such a pain to stop make a change, and then restart, and then stop and make some more. It makes fine tuning a pain.

Real time tuning is awesome but you are going to pay for it.

what's wrong with small tweaks after a scanning session and doing it again? tuning isn't supposed to be a quick experience unless you want a ****ty tune.

you gotta love when the majority of the community is all about accessports when they don't allow you to do anything more than flash a generic tune to your car. open source tuning is as cheap as buying a tactrix cable and downloading the software. from there it just take your time to learn the software and more time to tune your car. or pay someone else to do it, but either way open source is the only way to go if you actually want to be tuned well.

i have the software and cable, but the only reason i did it is because the drive by wire mapping on the 2.5i on the stock tune is absolutely terrible. making it a linear map makes the car so much nicer to drive.

lol, I think he was refering to access tuner Race program which allows live tuning.

But I do agree with you about taking your time and doing it right. I think most professional tuners would agree that using the live tuning cuts tuning time in half... Especially if you are proficient and comfortable with the program.

i could agree there. tuning live seems beneficial since flashing a new tune and going out for another scan session soaks up lots and lots of time. i've tuned a car for a better half of a day and still not gotten everything done because we simply ran out of time.

Ive open sourced tuned my evo9 and ive tuned several sr20s and rb25det powered cars with the powerfc. Ive done some work with haltech, but Ive never tuned with cobb or the race tuner software thats kind of where I was trying to lead this. I know with the cobb you are supposed to be able to flash back to stock and it not increment the flash counter. Im not talking generic tuning here. If I decide to tune I will get a data logging wideband, and Im pretty sure I can monitor everything else from the cobb software.

The Cobb software is lacking compared with Open Source, imho. But they both achieve the same result. Real time tuning is a nice feature, but it's not really needed since the longest part is the data collection anyway.
