Depends on the power goal. I really like the tdo4. Lots of midrange power, good for the streets and good for autocross. It runs out of breathe quickly though if you're going for more top end power.

I drove a wrx with an sti engine and when I hit 45 rpm it sent me back in me seat and I wanna get something like that done for cheap but done right. Would the tdo4 do that for me?

what year? what turbo did it have? supporting mods? how was it tuned? what gear were you in?

sounds like you're looking for more torque, which the tune can be catered to

Hello, planning to do a muffler delete soon, how much should it cost? What I am going to ask them to do is unbolt the flangs and remove both my muffler and have them bend me a 2.5" stainless steel pipe and weld some flangs on the end and bolt it on. How much should I being paying?

I'd call around a few local shops and tell them exactly what u told us here, and see what they quote u, then go from there.

Thank you wrxnguyen. Didnt think id get a response. like the color, I just got my 2014 wrx sedan satin pearl white. For anyone wondering about doing a muffler delete, it sounds amazing and was not expensive appose to getting a muffler, resnantor, headers. My method required no cutting of the stock pipe. They unbolted the stock and bolted back on the newly bent pipes with flanges. Cost: 135$ 35 for parts the rest labor. You can probably ask around for a cheaper price on labor. This does not include tips. Shopping around for some tips at the moment.

What do you guys think about the burned blue titanium tips? Out of style?

I'm planning on creating a custom system that will be quiet, eliminate drone, and gives fantastic flow.
3" piping from the cat, one Racing Beat 3" rotary resonator, and one 3" Rotaflo rear can with a 4" dump...considering splicing in a 3" remote cutout after the resi and before the diff.

This will work with Stock, Stage 1 or 2 with down pipe. Resonator is about $115 and the rear is around $300..piping, say $80-100. Around the $500 mark with proven flow, muffing, and performance. Similar price as just the muff deletes!

Subi's are already quieter than rotaries on any given day, I have a good feeling....stay tuned!

I just bought my first WRX right off the showroom floor. Having previously been a VW/Audi guy it's all new to me.

Initially, when buying a new GTI the first thing on the list is an ECU flash to liven up the motor a bit. With that said, I have a question for the Accessport users. How noticeable is the difference on a stage 1 map?

I realize someone has likely given feedback somewhere in this thread but searching through scores of pages isn't something I'm going to do. At least I didn't ask how to determine wheel/tire fitment. I'm not new to forums at all so let's keep the flaming to a minimum...
I'm in the exact same boat. I've previously owned 2 GTI's and after I broke both cars in I had them chipped. In that community, that's step #1 and right off you get great gains.

My question is slightly different though. To the OP, your information is fantastic but you specify model years from many years ago. Can you or someone else provide an update for the new 2.0L engine in the '15 WRX?

All of the remote cutouts I've seen leak profusely.. and the motors tend to burn out repeatedly.

I'm currently using a Xforce Varex dual kit. Both mufflers have a butterfly valve allowing a straight through design & with the valve closed the gases are diverted into the muffler chamber before exiting through a hidden port.
Here's a video demonstration on my WRX - http://youtu.be/X6RkpFnkxr4



Varex has been used on many cars at Powertune Australia. Cars with well over 500hp.

Yes, do them both at the same time or the accessport first. Unless cobb has come out with a new map for that intake, your perrin intake will not work with the maps you download from Cobb's website (OTS maps), you will need a custom tune or risk potential problems with the OTS maps. Read the "map notes" to determine what intake systems they support.
