    2013 wrx lease stage 1?

    Im leasing a 2013 wrx hatch and i was wondering if its evan worth going stage 1 on a lease ..it would be the only mod . I would use ecuflash and a torque performance tune since i already have a tactrix 2.0 cable.

    Yes, not much gain but much nicer drivability all around.

    I could tell the factory tune was terrible during the first 5 min of the test drive. Then i looked up dyno sheets to see how bad it really was. I havnt seen a factory tune this bad in a while.

    That TP map will feel much better from a boost curve and throttle standpoint. They should come that way from the factory.

    Maybe an intake too?!?!

    You want to pay and mod someone else's car, then pay more in operating costs, and potentially pay to restore it?

    No.

    More operating cost and $$ to restore it to the OE tune.......did I miss something? $85 for the map, which BTW I get as good or better mpg on my stg2 TP map, and then just flash it back when you turn it in.
