    First time Wrx owner

    Hello Club Wrx. I just bought a dark grey 14 sedan Limited with navigation.

    Looking forward to learning more about tuning this vehicle, as I have heard it is required to do mods of any kind. I am a welder\exhaust tech by trade and was looking forward to doing exhaust and intake.

    Will have windows tinted this Saturday.

    -David

    Welcome and congrats do you're research before you start modding. Exhaust mods require a tune if you do a aftermarket dp.

    Thanks everyone. Frenz, your comment about a down pipe got me thinking. My coworker has a 14 wrx. He did cat back and lost bottom end torque. Are you saying a tune is not needed for a cat back with stock cats/down pipe in place?

    Yes a tune is not needed for a catback system, but you will definitely want a tune for a downpipe
