U will feel a big difference in how smooth the power delivery will feel and I think u will get about 30whp more. Stg 2 is where the big power is compared to stg 1.

what year is your car? fill out your profile. the ap will help alot just with a stage 1 tune. like already said, it will slooth out power delivery, give some better mpg, and fix the drive by wire settings on the newer cars. ive had mine from a basic stage 1 map 4 years ago to now with a vf52 swap, and a custom stage 3 map tuned to about 22 psi. you can log many parameters, and just keep an eye on the cars health in general.

Default want a tune

ive had my wrx for 8 months now and havent been able to do anything to it i really want to know if anybody has the cobb tuner for sale and if they do how much or any other parts looking for the tuner first though. i know my way around these engines and the computers but id rather get the tuner before i start doing any bolt ons or internal work. Please email me something i live in nc and most of the wrx's and sti's around here in fayetteville don't have much more than 350hp. and i don't know anyone here with a tuner for the wrx, sti. my email is tjd2992@yahoo.com if anyone has any information thanks.

Check in the classifieds section. Also, a OTS tune will work great for a stock car and even stage 2+ depending on what mods. Eric from torqued performance has really good tunes for the AP. There are a few others as well who are great. Use the search function, it works great. Good luck.

i dont understand your question. go to the newbies section and learn about subaru ecu and tuning. they are very tricky. you cant just throw parts on like a honda.
