Cobb does make a NA one but it won't get you any power gains. The most power you can really squeeze out of our engines is probably 5-10 HP. Do a search for the thread "2.5i" and "08-10 2.5i". All of your options have been covered numerous times and you will learn a lot.

Have you been able to get your car to be more "responsive"?

This is not true, I emailed earlier this week and they make no accessport for the 06+. Sad but true.

I think there used to be one but not any longer, same goes for Rallitech too. From what I have read due to a lack of power upgrades for our car it was decided there is no market for an accessport which is bs there are alot of people that want to and are moding these cars. I figured you could just get a WRX accessport for data logging and make a custom map that way but the guy that eamiled me back from cobb did not address that question. Maybe if we can get enough people together we could get Cobb to reconsider?

$600 buys a few open source tunes for most people.

If you're someone who will be dedicated to learning how to open source tune, it's VERY worth it.

By the way, id3379 could you reply to my PM

If you get an accessport you will get good gains in power. I got the maps from rallitek. Premium gas tune, intake, custom exhaust with rallisport UEL.
