    **I found time to post some of my review threads over here... see below** This is a Review of the COBB AccessPort Stage 1 map on my 2011 STI Limited. Its amazing that Subaru came out with a Stock Tune that is as bad as the one on the 2011 STI. I have read thread after thread from normal...

    I bought a Spec Stage 1 clutch for my stock '02 WRX and had it installed in September 2008 with a resurfaced flywheel at a Subaru dealership. After the initial break-in period when I dealt with severe chattering, I had no problems with the clutch. Less than 2 years and 10,000 miles later, the...

    I see on Perrins website dyno runs saying a gain of 54 ft lbs, and 38whp - these seem like big numbers, but I know Perrin is fairly reputable, what do you guys think? Stage 1 is to what I am referring - 09 WRX. On the butt dyno would I notice a difference - especially with torque? And what...

    Hi guys, 09 WRX owner. Was looking at the Perrin Stage 1, and Stage 2. Stage 2 - 68 ft lbs 46 whp, Stage 1 - 54 ft lbs 38 whp. But wow the difference in cost is like $1300, for a gain of 14 ft lbs and 7 whp, worth it? I personally do not like the sound of the Perrin exhaust so probably doesn't...
  15. Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    Just installed last week, simple flash and Perrin overnight shipping for the price of ground shipping was much appreciated. Got the 93 octane map with a target boost of 17 psi (sea level). My initial driving impressions were mixed. The surge of power around 2500-3000 is impressive, but rather...

    Hey guys, hoping you can help. I am newbie to this so be easy on me. Was looking at the Cobb AccessPort as well as the Perrin. Probably Stage 1 due to $.

    ...in an empty parking lot, with the Accessport I bought yesterday. Nearly went Stage 2, but with my 3 or 4 month work trip starting soon, I figured I'd wait.
