    New WRX Owner... Have a few Questions!

    Hey guys, I bought my first WRX a few weeks ago and love it! It is a 2012 WRX hatchback. The only mods I have done to the car so far have been a turbo xs BOV, and Xentec h11 35w HIDS...

    I researched a little bit and saw TheShop.com in norwalk and am wondering how to go about tuning the car. Should I have them tune it or should I buy the Cobb tuner. I really do not know much about WRX's as I am in high school, and just went from a 1983 944. Posted below is a couple pics of my WRX. Like the HIDs?

    Thanks!

    Alex

    First off ditch the BOV... I assume you want to get the car tuned for stage one? You have one of two options buy the cobb ap or get a protune. Protune is the way to go imo you get more out of the tune then if you were to use the maps on the AP.

    Stage 1 is just a tune to replace the stock map.. stage 2 is a aftermarket downpipe + a tune protune is going to be around 470-600 depending on where you live and depending on the tuner.
