It is absolutely fun to drive puts a smile on my face everyday . Yes this was on a flat stretch of highway. I have the MAPerformance intake and catless turbo back exhaust, it definitely sounds amazing. Seemed like it took a while to get the tune right but he finally got it, car feels great and gets 33mpg on my highway drive to work which is an added bonus.

Just finished up my FlexFuel tune with Ron! This thing is some serious fun and pulls very nicely til redline, even the91 OCT tune blows away my previous tune...although Ron says he recommends maybe doing a walnut blast because of some knock issue we were having with 91, but our gas sucks lol... here's the E50 one.

That is a bit too much power on stock internals for my comfort levels. This thing must be a beast.

I don't see anything extreme about it. I'll be shooting for about the same plot +2-3 PSI. Calculated load barely cracks 2.4 up top. ~240 g/s.

Definitely the most aggressive timing ramp up I've seen from Ron. All cars are different though. Some like timing and some like boost. Looks like a trade off here.

Are you seeing knock in the midrange usually or just on that pull?

Good to hear. Something like that is more than I would ever want out of this car.

Just on this pull actually, I just realized this was Rev19. Ron actually gave me another revision that he told me to beat on for 2-3 mins. That revision felt stronger (although I was babying this with the duration of the tune so Iím sure any beating would have made me think its super strong) and had 0 knock anywhere.

Im definitely more worried about my stock clutch than the internals with this tune, iím at 41k and a lot of those miles were me doing stupid crap like this

How many miles are on the car now? Curious about the walnut blasting. There seems to be no definite answer as far as how often that should be done, it seems to be entirely dependent on your driving habits.

I'm getting tuned by Ron in a few months, albeit on 91...still excited though.

Just hit 42k miles, daily driving mixed with canyon runs and stupid hooning, definitely curious to see how it looks and Iíll post it on the forums just to log it. I just got SubieBros little manifold kit so Iíll try it sometime next year. Ron does great work, so Iím sure it will wake up your car nicely!

Ron was actually the one who suggested taking a look at it, only because during our 91 OCT tune we were having a hard time getting rid of some knock above 6000 RPM.

https://datazap.me/u/discostu1911/lo...2&hg=1-3-12-16

I recently installed the PRL intermediate pipe and took a datalog. 3rd gear WOT. I'm really concerned about the 0.5 DAM reading especially since 91 ACN is the only fuel readily available here. Also, boost actually hits 22 PSI, when the target boost should be 20 PSI.

I've been staying out of boost until a few more parts show up (including GS EBCS), and I'm planning on an etune from Phatbotti. Any thoughts?

That midpipe needs a tune, you are overboosting really bad, stay out of boost until you get a proper tune or start the process immediately.

Its requesting 17psi you are getting 22psi, bad times.

Yikes! Ok, thanks for the heads up. I'll definitely stay out of boost until I get it tuned.

I would run the Cobb OTS. The wastegate ramp up isn't nearly as bad. I'd talk to Ron but I'd almost delete the pill and run a stage 2 tune in the meantime.

I could be wrong but I'm certain those load values are not accurate. Every Phatbotti log I've seen appears to have the tune setup so calculated load scaled is down. This is to avoid hitting the 3.3 g/rev limit on the ECU.
Stock/OTS MAF calibration values with [email protected] will easily crack 3.0 load at peak torque.

Youíre right in that they are likely scaled down. Judging by the pressure and temp. Itís still not ďextreme.Ē

Glarrys load was definitely scaled down on his logs from Ron, even though at altitude itís highly unlikely he would hit the max.

Ah, ok. I'm still waiting for my EBCS to come in before I get an etune from Ron, but would you suggest running the Cobb OTS Stage 1 map in the meantime? Or the Stage 2?

Thanks for the feedback!

You should be running the correct map for your mods. A 3" J-pipe will require a stage 2 map. No offense but best you not drive the car until you get all the proper mods and a proper tune and leave it the hell alone when it's running 100%.

The log you posted is a little concerning.

Changing out the midpipe frees up the exhaust so much over stock, even with the stock J-pipe its still a huge flow increase.

Also if you are only doing the midpipe for emissions reasons it might still fail inspection.

He replaced the intermediate pipe not the entire j pipe. The mid pipe is part of the catback... the Intermediate pipe is the section of the j pipe just after the J, basically a j pipe from the curve back- so it's not a full j pipe. Stage 2 OTS is not meant for this, but it is the closest as there is no OTS for his mods.

Ok, I am sufficiently spooked that I will park the WRX until I can get it properly tuned with new parts installed. Thanks for the feedback everyone!

I'm very aware of where the midpipe is, hence me telling him/her/yes to start the tuning process immediately.

Never said to run Stage 2 OTS either, I'm confused.

I was just saying there is no OTS for him, it was directed at you specifically.


The mid pipe is part of the cat back and does NOT require tuning. He didn't touch his mid pipe, so I wasn't sure why you brought that up. Hence me explaining the difference between the I pipe which does.need tuning and the mid pipe which does not.
