Well, my factory warranty has expired (already) on my WRX and I am tossing around the idea of putting a tune on the car. I've done some (very little) research on tuning and it sounds like it will address some of the issues I have with the current power output on the car (mid-range acceleration leaves a lot to be desired). Anyhow, upon talking to a professional tuner, he was telling me that the current stock tune on WRXs is actually rough on the motor and is only set the way it is to meet EPA requirements. He went on to tell me that a tune would also help mpg, while seeing a significant increase in horsepower. Aside from any "Why would you need more power in this car?" types of posts, do any of you have information about tuning, either pro or con? Will it hurt the motor? Was the information he was providing me inaccurate? Have any of you had it done? I'm not wanting to tune the car to anything extreme, just want it to be more efficient and last longer. OK, the extra horsepower sounds nice too
Thanks in advance! Everyone on here always gives great feedback!
