    Stage 1 Upgrade

    Excited to go stage 1 tomorrow. I come from a 2010 GTI & the reflash was night and day different. I know the reflash won't be as intense but still a start to a long modding relationship I hope to have with this car. I own a 2011 WRX Base Sedan, Silver, 16k miles. Excited to say the least!!

    T minus soon until DP envy sets in and you order one up! Even Stg1 feels much better than stock, nice work.

    Not that impressed with stage 1. Doesn't feel all that different. Though launch control is fun.

    That's because you're probably looking for power and it's not a huge increase. The more important thing is your car is much healthier.

    No that's not normal. Why did you "Have" to turn it up?

    Felt like when I hit the gas to give slight rev that it bogged. After I turned it up slightly it was fine

    Can that be adjusted with the ap? and at idle when it was set at 750 if I gave the gas a little tap to slightly rev it would wanna stall. Aka the Rpms went down for a quick second. So I adjusted about 50 Rpms and now it's perfect.
