    2015 wrx and tuning

    I have a 2015 WRX... Getting nameless axelback in a month. Just wondering if a pro tune on top would be good? I bought and returned the COBB AP I bought. I have used cobb for try last 8 years and this was the first time I ws disappointed. Didn't seem very good compared to stock in terms of mapping. What alternatives to cobb are out there? I don't want to do a whole lot of mods, but would like to maybe get around 296 hp like the WRX S4 that is getting released in Japan. GreatLy appreciate all advice

    Thanks

    Darren

    Also, why does any photo I post for my profile come in upside down??

    A pro tune is always good (if the tuner knows what he's doing). I believe ECUTek is the only other option for the 2015 WRX so far (other than stand alone).


    Your avatar photo must be oriented the wrong way.. I would just turn it around in Photoshop (or GIMP) .

    The 1.05 maps were disappointing but they improved the throttle response somewhat in the 1.08 versions. The last generation used a bigger turbo which meant more gains from a basic tune, but I wouldn't be surprised if there are limitations to what can be achieved with the stock injectors and turbo. I hope we'll see some more Cobb updates soon and get a better idea of what can be achieved.

    I tried the 108 HWG map and I still liked the stock mapping better. The stock mapping has great low mid range torque which is awesome for city driving. The cobb stage 1 seemed to flatten out the torque curve alright... Except misses any zip that would set in on my 2011 WRX AT AROUND 3800 RPM. WONDER WHAT SUBARU DID TO GET THE WRX S4 to 296hp?
