    2012 wrx stage 2 performance?

    Hey guy's, I have a 2012 wrx hatch and I'm thinking about going to stage 2 with these mod's-( Cobb accessport, Invidia catted downpipe, Invidia Q300 cat-back exhaust ). What kind of performance gains do you guy's think I will get with this basic setup...HP, Torq, etc. I'm new at this and would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

    That's a nice exhaust, I have the same but for a sedan. Peak gains are not huge but it's in the range of 250whp/300wtq depending on the dyno, fuel, temp, elevation. The car is much more fun to drive with all the added mid range torque you pick up and you can appreciate it without even going wot.

    Thanks Eric, I have been looking at several vendors exhaust and the 2 performance shops closest to me recommended the invidia exhaust. I'm going to wait a few more months to make sure there are no gremlins hiding under the hood as it's a new engine. Can't wait until the install!

    Every car is different. They probably posted the best dyno graph they had available.

    I have an 11 hatch, Invidia catted dp, Q300 catback, AEM CAI. Switched from Cobb's map to Tourqued Performance. TP's squeezes out a little more power and smooths the curve a bit more. Car's a beast now. Took it to the drag strip a few weeks ago, no prior experience, and ran 13.0 1/4 with a soft launch (2 second 60'). Should be easily capable of a 12.5.

    RSX, Thanks for the info. Hows the sound with the invidia dp and exhaust. And where should I go to review some information about Tourqued Performance maps.

    Also with the TP maps Eric will tweek the map specifically for your car if you send him some logs. He's also extremely quick with e-mails etc. I was initially running a little rich, now its perfect after his adjustments.

    TP sounds like a good place for your fine tunning. I will have to check them out after I have run the ca maps.

    I absolutely love the of the Invidia. When I first installed it I had some drone problems (I have a hatch) but after realigning it there's very little drone. Sounds incredible at WOT. As far as Torqued goes I have only heard positive reviews. Eric is always willing to help out. I know there are more reviews on nasioc too.
