    New Subiee owner here. It's a 2013 WRX hatch or wagon? Lol my insurance says wagon.

    About 3 weeks ago I sold my BMW. It was a 06 325i 6spd ZHP with way too many miles on it. It was my daily commuter to school and back (70miles) and weekend back road hugger. I hope she's in a better place now lol.

    Anyway, I picked up the wrx after countless test drives a week later. First impressions were booooost lol. I loved the wide body, the utility, the awd, and the boooost. The color was between wrx and the black. They had the blue in stock so I went with it and don't regret it - it looks awesome.

    I'll admit it's a bit difficult going from German to Japanese. The bimmer had a dms flywheel which makes it easier to be smoother as far as clutch goes. The 1st to 2nd is a learning curve lol. I'm still breaking it in (500 miles) to go.

    My first major mods I plan are catless dp with Cobb ap. I gotta get rid of this shift knob too lol.

    I hope all goes well with this car. It's the first I've had brand new. I'm from the westchester area in NY btw

    Thanks!

    The 1st to 2nd is will be fixed as soon as you (if you decide) go stage 1. Shifting is smoother, red lines higher holds more boost, and believe it or not get better gas mpg (I travel anywhere from 500 to 1500 miles a month). So I could tell a huge difference.

    The tune makes your wrx better period. It's like a brand new car. Best 250$ I've ever spent.

    congrats! and ^^^ stage one will smooth out your power band however i noticed with Cobb stage 1 i get worse gas mileage, however it may be attributed to having a heavy right foot.

    I know a guys who open source tunes me from Florida. It's pretty cool actually. Initially it's 250 then just re tunes for other mods, intake, dp, I usually just tip him a Meer 20$. Great guy, makes his own maps.

    I haven't been anywhere near redline yet lol however, I will def get a tune. Your connect from Florida sounds like he has great pricing but I need something versatile that can be switched from stock to map #. The Cobb AP has my eye.
    Thanks for your input

    The only downside to Cobb ap. Is that there isn't a map specific to a cai. Our so I've herd.

    You "heard" wrong. A little research goes a long way......
    Cobb makes maps for their intake as well as the aem cai. Perrin modifies cobbs Map for their intake if you buy it from them. And TP has OTS accessport maps for basically any intake you want.

    Well I specifically remember reading on this forum somewhere that a certain combo of mods, Cobb doesn't make a map for.

    Furthermore why would I "google" or research something I have no use for. As I've said in my previous post, maybe you didn't bother to read, I am open source.
