Well I decided to make a review and share my story.
I have a 2012 WRX and was really looking for a tune since I heard that the stock tune sucks (All cars IMO)
I was looking for a tuning solution, the very first thing that came up was the Cobb AP, my friend has it and showed me how to use it and how it logs. It’s pretty cool, has its own logging and it’s plug and play.
The price is $540-$599 new.. I had an 08 civic si before and I bought the FlashPro for $650 so I told myself okay that’s not bad.
So.. after doing more research on ClubWRX and Nasioc “Tactrix” came up and I looked it up its $165!! READING, RESEARCH and PATIENCE Pays off!
I have a background on using Hondata’s software so I tried RomRaider and ECUFlash. It’s very easy! All you need to remember is “DO NOT WRITE TO ECU” while car is running LOL and save your stock tune!
Romraider is a pretty good tool for datalogging but I’ll still get myself gauges to be safe.
After trying the software, I looked up base maps. And yeah.. After reading and it’s my first Turbo car I told myself I’ll go find an e-tune for now and mess with tunes later..
I found this thread Just flashed torquedperformance stage 1 map with tactrix thanks to fickel8 for answering my noob questions.
Looked up Torqued Perfomance bought their Stage 1 map and I’m pretty happy! Car is so smooth now and faster! Customer Service is just A+!! Eric helps you when need anything about the tune and checks your log without a problem!
Highly recommended! If I decide to go stage 2 I’ll use TP again.
Cobb Sf Intake with Airbox
Nameless Axelback 3.5
Tactrix $165 + TP Stage 1 $85 = $250
Cobb AP + OTS Maps = $540-$590
