Default AP Stage 1 + SPT Catback on '06 WRX

I am considering this mod combo on my '06 WRX. The Cobb site states 255 HP using the 91 octane progam from just the AP flash. Will the butt dyno register a noticeable improvement over stock with this combo?

Theres WAY more to the AP than peak number changes. Theres a significant improvement in the torque band.

Default 06 WRX Stage 1 Quote

This is a post I cropped from i.club
It is from a member that is running AP Stage 1 on his 06 WRX

"Hey guys I am now at stage1 and I must say it is a very noticeable increase in power, especially low-end to midrange. First gear has really come alive and second and third are even better now. The hesitation around 3000 rpm is gone and the power band much smoother, along with a nice improvement in throttle response.

Overall I'm very impressed, to Christian and the rest of Cobb great job on this product, I will definitely be getting the cobb tbe next to go stage2."


The title was "2006 Stage1 93 octane" if you want to go check out the thread yourself. Also, if you search here under that same title, you will find the thread started by Christian @ Cobb and all the info in initial testing of Stage 1 and Stage 2 for the 06 WRX.

Your SPT Catback will make little if any effect on power gain. It will change the sound of your exhaust but most/all of what you will feel is from the Stage 1 AP.

I may be wrong about this, but here it goes anyways. I believe that the HP numbers cobb said that the 06 would produce are wrong. I believe that HP numbers are actually higher than what cobb says because I believe they based those numbers off what the rated HP subaru claimed that the 06 has. Dynos prove that the 06 should have between 240 - 250 BHP stock not 230 BHP. The cobb website says it gets 300 ft lbs torque to answer the question above.

There is a noticable increase when you go to Stage 1. Since I have an 02, I can't speak for the 06 power gains and changes, but I do know that the Stage 1 map smoothed my engine out and the boost and torque levels changed slightly as well.

I just went to Stage 2 and the differences between Stage 1 and 2 are more significant than the differences that I saw between Stock and Stage 1.
