    have you ever tuned a car before? if no that leave the boost at the stop psi. or get the cobb accessport or get an opensource tune by a tuner shop. do a lot of research before you start turning up ur boost, even if you have the supporting mods.

    that cobb access port is pretty expensive thought, there any other cheaper versions?

    Yes, you can go the open source route. But I highly suggest you think about this. If you can't justify spending less than a grand on engine management - are you sure you want to start messing with your car? Granted, stage one and stage two are honestly pretty safe for the most part - but you'll still be hitting the engine and driveline harder than you likely would if the car was stock.

    Choose wisely.

    I recommend doing A TON of reading before you start modding. Meet other local WRX owners in your area and see what their experiences have been.
