    If you believe what Cobb claims on their maps, you can make near 300 HP and 300 Tq with factory hardware with one of their tunes on the WRX.

    Sorry guys, I'm new to the Subaru world, so maybe this is a dumb question, but the older WRX motors were different between the STI and the WRX, it looks like the new ones are the same overall motor but just detuned or something. Is the cobb stuff emisions legal in Cali?

    Thanks
