If you're stage 1 or 2 why bother whith the stock tune
That was my thinking as well initially. The problem could be that the reflash doesn't specifically mention the tune. The Subaru reflash apparently addresses how the ECM deals with the rev limiter. My understanding of the Cobb maps is that there are somethings they don't change in the ECM logic and this could be one of them. So the idea is that you get this reflash to obtain the new logic and then get the new compatible maps from Cobb.

Maybe Cobb has full control over the ECU's logic. It's been awhile since I've followed the ECU tuning, especially on the newer ECUs.
