    WRX Protuned by Agile Auto

    Figured I'd do a little build thread on my car since it's become a hobby of mine now. The car is used as my daily driver now so I won't be doing anything too crazy. Just the basic power mods, some wheels if I ever decided on a set, and some cosmetic stuff.

    Decided to go with Agile Auto in MD for the protune since I've read nothing but good things about Hill's tuning. I made the 4 hour trip yesterday and everything went very well. It was cool to check out the shop, the cars, motor's being built, etc... Hill was a very nice guy and answered my questions without rushing anything. Overall, I was very pleased with the tune and customer service. Hill said my car responded very well for what parts I have so I was happy about that too.

    The car was tuned on Sunoco 93 octane which he highly recommended me to use and keep using.

    Results: 315whp/342wtq @ 20.5 psi

    Mods: Cobb AP, AEM intake, Invidia catted dp, Invidia Q300, Process West tmic, Grimmspeed ebcs, Forge bpv.

    The car pulls very strong and feels much smoother even under normal driving conditions. It's really impressive feeling this much torque coming for a 4 cylinder which makes the car really fun to drive even without going wot.

    I'd like to say I won't be searching for more power down the road but you never know if a Blouch 20g, up pipe with EWG, injectors, fuel pump, and clutch might pop up some day

    That is one nice looking sedan you have there and those are pretty good numbers. The Invidia Catted DP, Process West TMIC, and Grimmspeed EBCS were actually on my list lol. Glad to see they yield good results. Were you at Stage 1 with the AP before this? How big of a difference is driving from before?

    The dyno gets fastened to the dyno using the car's wheel studs. Pretty cool really.

    It has some supposed accuracy advantages over a traditional tires on drums in the floor dyno. The one obvious plus is securing the car to the device. Instead of a series of straps to keep a car on the drums, the chassis mount is rock solid. I've had my WRX on both types - the chassis mount that Agile uses seems far more secure.

    Thank you. I was actually at stage 2 + AEM right before the tune and it was a pretty impressive gain in power. The difference between this and stage 1 is huge. Even going from stage 1 to stage 2 was a nice torque gain.

    Thanks, I love the ice silver metallic. I was unsure how I'd like it from just seeing pics but after seeing it in person I'm very happy with it.

    Ya, ya. I will have to e-mail Hill about sending me a pic of it because if I take a pic of the paper your not going to be able to see it worth crap on here.

    Thanks! Ya, the dynapack is different for sure. When I first researched them I was like what the heck kind of dyno is that?? But if you check out the link it's a good set up.

    315whp with stock 565cc injectors? That amazes me...

    IIRC, Dynapacks read much higher thanks to the loss of 120+ lbs of rotating mass...

    I picked up the AEM used and painted it black to match the wrx intake manifold.

    I was rather impressed myself after seeing most people closer to 300 give or take a few. Hill said every car is a bit different and my car responded really well with the parts I have and the weather conditions were pretty much perfect he said. My injector duty cycle was at 95% on the top end which is ok for a daily driver but would not be taken that high if I tracked the car.

    I wouldn't say the Dynapack at Agile reads much higher. My baseline was 270ish whp and just under 300wtq with the ots stage 2 map while I seen another member here make 310whp/350wtq on another Dynapack at stage 2.

    For comparison sake...

    Actually a very good tuner told me that only in extreme cases do the injectors need to be changed if the car is on a stock turbo.. but i'm not mechanic, nor do I know a whole lot about these cars.

    There's always going to be someone trying to down your numbers man... your tuner knows best and Agile pretty much tunes only Subaru's so i'd take their word over someone elses anyday. Good numbers... if youre happy with it that's all that's important.
