    You mentioned pre-06 WRXs and catless up-pipe mods. What about a 2011 WRX with a Perrin catless up-pipe mod. Still don't need ECU tune?

    the pre-06's had a cat in the up-pipe. Pretty sure you don't, so therefore there's really no reason to replace your up-pipe.

    Yes, pre 2006 for the WRX. 2004-2005 STi did not have UP cat.
    2015 CWP WRX STi ... But how did I get roped back into an EJ motor?!

    No, you do not need a tune for an uppipe on any year.

    What stage should I tune to with a turbo back exhaust? 93 octane is hard to find in oklahoma, but if I drive 15 minutes I can get it for $5 a gallon.

    Damn that's crazy! If you go to Wal-Mart can you find an octane booster? That might save you a few bucks at the pump.

    You'd need a lot of octane booster to boost 15 gallons of 91 octane fuel to 93 octane. You'd spend more money in boosters than to pay the difference at the pump.

    Regardless of what it says on the bottle, you aren't going to get any where near 93 octane from 91 with anything. Also, that stuff is going to make a mess of things, like your front O2 sensor.

    Never used the stuff, just going on what other people say. But those were also Honda forums. I'm also blessed to be in Michigan where 93 sells for $3.80 a gallon haha.
