2003 WRX


Hey guys, I just came from the VW world where this type of thing is totally taboo for some reason.
Once I got my 03 WRX about a month ago, I knew I had to have this! Well, I got my cable and everything yesterday, reformatted my laptop, and got it all setup last night and went for a little drive. It is all working perfectly!

I don't think I am going to get into tuning my own car for a while, but I will be datalogging and possibly playing with it a little.

My question is this, with the VW, there was programming available for totally stock cars that would net huge gains in performance. I haven't seen anything like this for the Subaru, however, I have heard that the stock programming is not perfect. Is there any benefit of getting an upgraded map for a car with just a 3" cat back?
I would like to optimize the car for now until I can get all the parts required for a stage 2 upgrade in a couple of months.
I would also like to add launch control to the car asap, so if there is a better stock map available, it would be a good time to add both of these to my car right now.
Before I would do anything, I'd like to do some logs and post them up to make sure everything looks ok with my car. Which parameters would I need to log in order to do this?

Thanks RomRaider and all the experts here that freely release all their hard earned info for free. I will be donating to the cause shortly!
