2018 subaru wrx premium
so I just bought myself a 2018 wrx premium, I love it except for the few issues I've notices that come with these that need tuned out, I'll get pictures posted soon!
If your car is pulling timing under full throttle there is an issue. Tuning it won't solve that issue. I suggest you ignore the "after market tunes are way better than stock tunes" crowd and evaluate and think about a few things.Well I ment the rev hang, and im new to this but from what I've researched, all these wrxs under full throttle cut timing and you can noticbly feel it while accelerating, i talked to my local tuner shop, who build incredible Subarus, that that is something commen with these cars, which can be fixed with a tune
..except it’s extremely common for these cars to pull timing on a stock map? There was even a factory update to try and combat it. Could literally be caused by heat soak, bad gas, boost spikes, etc.If your car is pulling timing under full throttle there is an issue. Tuning it won't solve that issue.

It's cheaper, safer, and more reliable to buy a faster car.
If a car has to be modified to meet the performance standards that you require them look for a different car.
With a broad brush modified vehicles are inherently less reliable than factory vehicles. The more modified the less reliable. All the way to a few thousand miles an engine.
Rev hang is an emissions feature. It's designed to keep the crank case pressure down and lessen oil vapors being lost or pushed into the cylinders. More oil vapor in the cylinder the more gunk that feeds through the egr and back to the valves causing air flow obstructions.
If a car company could improve fuel economy, reliability, power, efficiency with a simple tune then they would. They employ the greatest engineers in their fields with research and development budgets that make the entire aftermarket business look like a low budget start up.
Intake requires a tune and you can write off any coverage from Subaru for engine failure afterwards. I'd avoid it personally 10k dollar engine swaps get expensive.What does "PULL TIMING" mean? Does it happen in the 2020 WRX FA 20 DIT Motors? I love this WRX...fun car for sure. All I'm doing is putting on a Cat Back and intake. Thats it! Gonna enjoy this car reliably.
