Any subie driver with a turbo gets a wave. Don't forget the RS guys, they get a little testy.

Change your tranny mount from stock to something like the group-N tranny mount, and go stage 1 protune.

Reliable and 100% noticeable in daily driving.

Want more power than that? Stage 2 is looking pretty reliable with some of these long term stage 2 fa20dit's running around. Passed that, just grab yourself a built block.

I recommend getting an AccessPort & Flex Fuel kit for a "stage 1 flex fuel" tune. You get plenty of power (320+ whp) while keeping the engine mechanically stock. This keeps things relatively reliable and makes it easy to revert back to stock if needed. I had a similar setup for 30k miles before trading it in for a '19 STI.

I second noobultimatum's suggestion for the group n trans mount. I also recommend a shifter stop and bushing if you haven't already. They make a huge difference in shifting and drivetrain slop. It changes the driving experience.

35,800 miles at the moment.
At about 22,000 I got an accessport with themaperformance stage 1 93 ots map.
Before my protune I installed a verticooler and awe catback
At about 31,000 I did an IAG AOS STREET SERIES, T.S EGR DELETE, IBR FULL TGV DELETES, GRIMMSPEED EBCS, COBB BIG SF+ INTAKE, NEW OEM PLUGS and got a BRENTUNE PROTUNE. 323WHP 318WTQ on SHELL 93. Car runs amazing with the protune and i will use nothing less than shell 93 fuel. It ran great with the maperformance 93 tune but it got finicky when the summer heat came through even with the verticooler. Just had too much cruise knock for my liking even though it was minor numbers. Ive changed the oil with penzoil ultra platnum by the 3k mark sometimes as low as 2k if I had been driving extra hard which tends to happen probably overkill on the oil changes but i dont care.. Ill also add i wait tothe car gets to an oil temp of 125 before taking off gently and 180 oil temo before getting into boost more than like 5psi. I also will not floor it unless its in the kowest gear possible (no engine lugging)

Lets not forget some people are staying the stock tune blows, and you should get an AP. No staying that is correct, just saying there is a group of individuals who strongly stand behind this.
Lol all data is not good data 😂
