    Congrats! You will like it a lot, especially you have a lot to carry.
    Those mods are pretty tame as well (hopefully the person did an ECU reflash). Welcome to the Subaru community!

    Not with just an up pipe and Catback those mods do not require Engine Management.

    Although you should check out the Cobb Accessport I just got mine after months of research and besides the much improved power it also serves as a diagnostic tool and Averages MPG, and works like a turbo gauge too

    really cool and definitely a great addition to the WRX

    there are other solutions besides the AP but i choose it due to the added features and Ease of use.

    i installed my AP and flashed stage one 93 octane map on my completly stock car and it made a pretty big difference the car is easier to drive slowly and feels smoother and faster

    also the AP is mounted on my dash so i can read MPG, and Turbo PSi and lots of other cool stuff.

    i plan on a Grimmspeed Uppipe and invidia Downpipe i am not sure what catback i will use.

    easier driving at slow speeds is worth it alone but more power is a definate perk

    the cobb units i found averaged about 600.00

    where did you find yours?

    I ordered my V2 AP for 695 From cobb last monday and it was here thursday.

    where did you find it for 600?


    the Stock Map sucks compared to the stage 1 map, the power comes on smooth with less lag and it holds peak HP all the way to 7000rpm.
