    My 2011 WRX WRB Hatch!!

    I finally got around to taking a few pics of my car. MAN I love this car! moved up from a 06 civic si. MMMMMmm torque and hp
    After a VERY long wait she arrived. I picked up the Limited model, with SPT short throw shifter, homelink mirror,side modling. She is a beauty.

    so far I have a perrin intake, painted the brakes red w/g2 paint, and window tint. Next on the list is winter wheels, then Cobb Accessport

    anyway here are a few pics.

    correct. Perrin states you do not need a tune, after 2 weeks no CEL, but I will be getting tune sooner than later. I have noticed a loss of power at 4k to 4.5k I assume this is due to the intake and the ECU. I guess a tune is in store

    Intake I purchased.
    Perrin Performance - Intake System Cold Air

    thanks for the linke! I might buy from Perrin as they will send a MAP that is for the intake I already have on it.. good deal though!



    from their site...

    AFTERMARKET ECU TUNING
    The PERRIN intake system works great as a bolt on intake for a stock car with stock tuned ECU....

    Increase horsepower and style under your hood.The PERRIN Performance intake system uses proper MAF alignment and plumbing size, which are crucial to maintain proper air fuel ratios and prevent check engine lights that plague competitors.

    So I ended up getting a tune, it just did not feel "right" a little stuttering here and there.

    I went the tactrix cable route and purchased the Torqued Performance Stage 1 Opensource map. WOW huge difference the car just keeps pulling and pulling! Very smooth, feels "quick". Intake sound is much better now as well.
