    Stage 1 tune. With Stage 1 you can have a completely stock car or a stock car with an upgraded intake. I recommend keeping the stock intake since it works fine. The stage 1 tune changes the ECU to have a much smoother powerband and a couple extra horses. Changes the way the car feels in the greatest way possible. You can either go the expensive route and get a cobb accessport or you can go the cheaper route and get a tactrix along with a torqued performance stage 2 map that will be e-tuned specifically to your car. I think the latter option is the best because IMO the off the shelf cobb accessport maps aren't tuned specifically for your car can vary between locations and cars. The TP Stage 2 map is tuned for your exact car and your exact altitude so it is the best option besides a pro tune which can go for $400 for a dyno. Here is, IMO, the options you have listed from best to worst. It is your choice what you want.

    -Pro Tune (~$400)
    -Tactrix with Torqued Performance Map ($255)
    -Cobb Accessport ($650)

    You do need a laptop to use the tactrix though so you will have to add that to the cost if you don't have one. The Cobb accessport has a 1 inch screen for viewing. I personally use a tactrix.

    That's a contradictory statement. Aside from buying a Cobb AP tuner, or brining your car to professional tuner.
    If your leaving stock there's almost no options for gain in WHP, except tuning.
    You could do the Cobb stage1 package, that might meet your needs. And if you do decide to mod this is the place to talk about it.
    Most of us on average are stage2 tuned. It's a good place to be if you monitor it properly and don't beat on it.

    Myself I have a Cobb V3 Access Port, and 2 custom Dyno tuned maps. If you have the means this is a great way to go. Otherwise I would do exactly what SubaruWRXJosh said in his latest post. Either way you want a electronic tune to optimize your factory set up. Or go to stage1

    Yes I forgot to mention that. You can use the Cobb Accessport or Tactrix to run any map including pro tune maps. I personally like being able to use my Microsoft Surface to monitor all of the sensors in the car at once. I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that you can only monitor one sensor at a time with the Cobb Accessport. If the price of the Accessport wasn't SO MUCH more than the tactrix I probably would have gotten that, but I actually am happy I chose the tactrix. Romraider and Ecuflash are great tools. Things like the road dyno are some of the awesome features you get with tactrix. The Accessport also has it's own perks, but someone who has one can tell you about them.
