Hi everyone! I am currently stage 2 with the accessport, intake, downpipe, and exhaust. I am looking into the next step to gain some more power and drive ability. Any suggestions? When is a good time to get a pro tune and roughly what is the cost? Any ideas or thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

What year car?

From there you have tgv deletes, you can go with external wastegate and aftermarket ebc. You'll really need fueling on the EJ255 and 257. So id1050x and a walbro 255 or larger fuel pump and possible fpr.

It’s a 2017 with 25k miles. And I live in Cali. What’s the cost roughly? Can any shop do the tgv deletes? Thanks for the feedback. One shop said do flex fuel for about 4K. To ensure everything runs smooth.

Flex fuel is great if you don't mind replacing a 800+ dollar high pressure fuel pump all the time.

The fa20f in that wrx responds well to intake stuff so egr and tgv deletes for sure. Intercoolers will help. Front mounts have a lot of area to pressurize so they kinda suck for daily driving in my opinion. The smaller compact nature of the top mount charges faster at the cost of heat soak while moving slowly.

It's going to depend on how much more risk you are willing to play with. The engines are not good for infinite hp and when you start looking into flex fuel builds you can quickly get to the point you require a built block. Where your cost went from a few thousand to 20k.

Well stage 2 will fail any and all inspections. Anything further removes emissions devices that can't easily be swapped around.

I just had my car smogged at a station owned by a long-time acquaintance. I take four cars there on a routine basis, other family and friends go there, etc. We had a good chuckle about all the eXhaUsT y0! kids that try to pass catless or even with aftermarket cats as if he'd never notice. Good clean fun and it keeps them off the street. Usually they come back a few weeks later after they've found someone on the local NASIOC chapter to lend them a proper exhaust and fitted it as best they could for the test. Heh.
