    Looks like you've got some mods there, what's been done to the car and where would you like it to be, as you said in the first post?

    it's got the invidia exhaust, cobb intake, main pulley,battery tie down, and oil cap plus the access port control. I want to put some nice wheels on it something all black and aggressive looking, do my sound system and tint the windows. Im new to the WRX so im not sure where to go from here on the engine mods.

    I think its scary that you bought a modified vehicle and dont know much about the WRX. Anyway its good you have an Accessport but has it been tuned for the TMIC? Its not a huge deal but it can become one.

    Either way nice pick up just do some research haha.

    Welcome

    Your first order of business should be datalogging with the AP to make sure everything is running fine. Setup a logging session with the following:
    RPM
    Feedback Knock Correction
    Learned Knock Correction
    DAM
    Ignition Timing
    Injector Duty Cycle
    Boost
    Wastegate Duty Cycle
    Boost Error
    Throttle angle

    Find an empty highway, where you can do high-speed runs. Drive around, waiting for traffic to clear. When it's clear, throw the car in 3rd, and decel to 2K RPMs. Start the log, floor the throttle, and sustain to redline before stopping the log. Drive around normally for a little bit to let things cool down, and repeat. Get three 3rd gear logs with some time in between. Get one 4th gear WOT log (you don't have to go to redline, you can let off ~5K RPMs).

    Get home and upload all four logs to Google Docs. Set them to "Public". Post the URLs here so we can check them for you (unless you're familiar with reading/interpreting them).

    I hate it that they discontinued the red for 2013, or that is what I would have. Welcome to the forums and take what these guys can give you in the way of help. Just lurking here before I bought my car made me way ahead of the game.

    Cheers!
