    Tuners & Dynos in PA?

    I'm going to be throwing on the parts needed for Stage 2. But I don't know a thing about tuning. So would you recommend that I buy the Cobb Accessport, do some research & DIY it? or Take it to a dyno/tuning shop and have it professionally done. If I should take it to a dyno shop, does anyone know where a shop like that would exist in PA? More Specifically, near Allentown? thanks!

    If you are intelligent enough to be able to purchase an AP, you can flash a map onto your car with it.

    R/T Tuning – Dyno Tuning & Engine Performance Specialists in Lansdale, PA. They do a lot of WRX work and are pretty well known in the area. It'd be worth the hour drive for a protune for you.

    Okay thanks!
    @EJ257 - I wasn't too sure if it was that easy or not, I don't want to worry about messing anything up. But if it's as easy as you claim, I'll give it a go

    @Mikie13 & kprugbyplaya - I'll look into those places, even if I decide to tune it myself with an AP, I'll wanna get her on a dyno anyways.

    Thanks dudes!

    If you're at all nervous, contact Cobb when you go to flash the car.

    I guess I have nothing to be worried about, after all, I have the world's knowledge at my finger tips (internet) lol

    Any prediction on the power gain after stage 2? I've seen some on YouTube reach 260hp to 300hp with this setup. Not sure if that's to the wheel or to the crank. Some YouTube videos are such BS and misleading lol. I wouldn't mind seeing other 02-07 WRX's on this forum that are stage 2 (or higher) !

    Cobb lists power gains in their map notes.
