I have an 04 wrx I just recently purchased an up pipe, down pipe, cat back, clutch and flywheel. My question is how long can i go without getting a tune (waiting for the break in period for the clutch) or is it ok to get the tune with the new clutch? I plan on getting a pro tune but it seems like an accesport would make this much easier.

Run a line from the compressor to the wastegate. Get a tune ASAP

I have about an 80 mile drive to the tuner would it be fine and what about the break in period on the clutch?

I wouldn't drive that far without a tune on it. Yes, an AP makes the process much easier. You just won't get as much HP as you're likely to get with a good tune (assuming you have a good tuner that is).

What type of clutch and flywheel did you get?

I picked up an exedy replacement and an act streetlight flywheel and from reading on here the flywheels gonna throw a code for a misfire correct?
I plan on taking the car to innovative tuning in buffalo ny I've only heard good things about them and a good friend of mine is having good luck with his stage 2 tune by him

No problem whatsoever; running that line will limit you to wastegate pressure. Just drive like a sane person and you'll be fine. Just be sure to label the OE lines as to where they go so you can quick reinstall them in the parking lot.

Mike's a great guy, he'll take care of you.

That said, don't get hung up on #s; his dyno is one of the lowest reading I've seen (because he doesn't tamper with it). In the past, stock STIs didn't break 200whp on there.
