Default poor man's txs stage 1?

a lot of people are selling their unichips. since those are tuned for an otherwise stock wrx with a k&n filter panel and a 2.5" cat-back, i was wondering if i could use the greddy evo catback and a blitz drop-in filter for it. make me a little "poor man's stage 1"

you can always get the unichip reprogrammed to what mods you have. i believe its free by turboxs, you just pay for shipping.

When I got my stage 1, a long time and many mods ago, TXS said whether or not I used the KandN filter, and whether or not I bought their cat back, the stage 1 program was all I needed.

I think the KandN filter was rated 0 to 1 hp and the cat back +6, so I ran stealth for a while with no problems. When I went to the turboback, they put in the stg 2 program, so I wouldn't have to come back after putting in the complete turbo back system. When I added the TXS IC they said I could stay at stg 2, but to make sure I set the max boost back for no more than the old stage 2 setting of 16.5.

There seems to be some flexibility here, if you use 93 or higher octane gasoline.

I never had any problems along the way, and no CELs with the various stg 1 and stg 2 configurations.

I am getting a UTEC, because I like to collect gadgets, and am waiting for a little more data on the TXS uppipe, and how the stg 2 plus TXS IC plus UTEC compares to the same setup with the TXS uppipe and nitrous oxide. Then I need to see what stg 4 offers in what seems to me to be possible variants.

In the meantime I am trying to wear out my Kuhmos so I can get p03's on my Prodrives.
