Default Torqued Performance Vs Cobb

I recently did a stage 1 AP OTS tune for my 2011 WRX and im happy with it, but not satisfied i feel like i just need a little more but plan on staying Stage 1 for now so im looking toward the Torqued Performance Stage 1 tune. i dont have much info or insight on Torqued performance i tried youtube and their web page and the only difference i see is that cobbs tune is 15 psi peek boost compared to Torqued 18 psi. so if anyone has done the transition or is running that current tune or anyone that can give info and thoughts please do thx ^.^

Compare provided Dyno plots for both, then make a decision. You're going to find X amount of people that love, and hate each.

Instead of youtube (because I honestly have no idea what a video has to do with a tune), search this website. I know for a fact MANY people have reviewed both.

what hinshaw says. But one thing that is good about torqued performance maps is that you can do a log of your car and send it to him and he will tweak your map. Cobbs map is just cobbs map and there is no changing it.

you can change a cobb map yourself but you would need accesstuner from cobb its free if you have an ap. doing this would require you to do some reading. lots of it.

ClemRoo, do not make a new thread for every question. This thread was already about tunes and AP's, so that is why your other thread is moved into this one. All of your questions have been answered, are located in the countless stickies and info on this site, and can be taken care of by calling both Cobb and Torqued Performance. You, as a consumer, need to do your own research, not have people tell you how and what to do.

Did you ever try.. oh I don't know... contacting Eric at Torqued Performance? I feel like he would probably know what you need to do.

You can contact us by phone 303-642-6574

You can also email us at torquedperformance@yahoo.com
Email him to get an idea of what you are dealing with. He will answer all your questions. He is not here to answer noob questions though. SO RESEARCH FOR YOURSELF before you bug the crap out of him.

And by research I mean go to google.com, type in "nasioc" followed by "torqued performance tune"... holy crap.. look! A ton of info!

Enjoy.

And you cannot compare Cobb staged tunes to ANY custom tune.

Cobb staged tunes are generic default tunes. That's it. No and then.

A custom tune is a tune done on a dyno with a local tuner.

Torqued Performance is an e-tune and there are others that do this and its similar to a dyno tune but is cheaper and takes less time and is not as good as a real dyno tune. Still safe mind you, but if you want to squeeze every last HP out of your car, it is inferior to a dyno tune.

So if you want the best, get a dyno tune. If you don't live near a tuner, get an e-tune but while getting an e-tune expand your horizons as there are quite a few e-tuners. One that comes to mind that has probably tuned more Subarus than anyone on earth PLUS is a NASIOC vendor whose support money allows us to chat here is this guy: http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1516351

The difference between the TP tune and cobb is HUGE. it's not just the peak boost...it's a bunch of other small things that makes it way better.

Plus, zero knock with the tp tune while tons with the cobb. Eric with TP can adjust your tune to your car.
