Everything was working when sold and no issues.

That is why my new ride is getting zero power mods. Coilovers, wheels, tires, and some minor suspension parts.

If I don't like the ride with coilovers, I will do springs only. If that is just too bouncy, I will live with factory.

Cheers!

I'm current going through a motor rebuild as well, and was wondering if you went with Ron/Mike @ Phatbotti tuning for the break-in tune? If so, can you let me know what the "break-in" etune process by Ron/Mike was like?

My tune was with Mike. It was a great experience.

We went through 15 revs. Half were 91 and rest were flex, I believe.

Mike tunes it very conservatively for 91. There is room for a safe 20 whp on top of the 91 tune.

The flex tune is about as good as it can get. It is safe, but there isn't much left on the table. That said, over time, I developed a tiny bit of knock, so I went for a dyno tune.

I had Travis @ Snail Perfornamce do a final dyno tune. That is where we saw a good 20whp at a very safe level for 91.

Thanks for the reply!

Did you end up doing a gentle break-in with Mike where he gave you a base map to drive on the new motor for X amount of miles before you started going through more revisions with him? Or did you simply do the e-tune out right off the bat?

I had a base map from Travis, so I ran that for about 500 miles.

Did the e-tune with Mike. Ran that for a while. Then, I went to see Travis to get a dyno tune.

Side note as you may all know...the WRX was sold a little while back and I am in an Infiniti Q50 Red Sport.
