Hi! I have currently purchased a 04 Wrx WR Blue Sedan after many months of hunting to find the right one. (It appears Kansas is not the state for used Wrx's.) I have quite a few payments to go but I'd like to get started on tuning it. I use to drive a pretty well modded 99 Civic Si that I turbocharged myself and ran fairly well.
Now I'm very interested in the tuning as far as the ecu mods go for it appears that the stock Ecu is quite fearful of the destruction of the engine or any other mishaps. Most of my reading comes from Sport compact car issues that I have been hoarding for years and if anything I say is incorrect please feel free to correct me. I come to understand that the throttle must be @ 55% or more for full boost to occur and that after 5500 rpms it bleeds off boost and therefore causes lower horsepower but less stress to the engine. These are the two things that bother me about the car that I would like to change first.
So far I have been reading up on the Vishnu Stage Zero(280) has caught my eye (price wise its where i would like to be) but I have been reading of many other tuners that have similar of set ups. Any links or info on this product or similar ones would be much appreciated. I will be continuing with upgrades but they will be slow and spaced out if that is any help. Thanks for any help! (Sorry for all the text!)
