    stage 2 on a '02 wrx

    hey so I'm new here and i have a '02 wrx. I have a cold air intake and 3" tbe. I have not got a tune for it. I am wondering what the increase in hp and tq is likely to be and an average cost to have someone tune it for me. Any information would help cause I'm a noob but looking to learn.

    Why don't you have a tune? Car come that way from the previous owner?

    Tunes can vary. If you pick up a Cobb Accessport, it can be anywhere from $300 to $600 if you buy vs. used. This is a general off the shelf option that is generally utilized for *any* car similar to yours for stage 1 and stage 2 (and protuning possibilities).

    Protune at a tuning shop on a dyno can run anywhere from $300-600 for that session and is the best option for your specific car, specific mods, and environment.

    E-tune would require the use of a Tactrix cable and a laptop. A tuner sends you a map...you load it onto your ECU yourself, and run logs. Send logs back to the tuner, and he makes adjustments. Rinse and repeat until you have a good tune for your car. Also better than the accessport since it is more specific to your car and parts.

    Generally you can expect 30-50whp over stock depending on dyno, environment, specific parts, and the type of tune.
