Update

Image


I just made an appointment with Draco to get my WRX tuned.

Current mods:
Perrin 3" catted downpipe
Perrin 3" catback
Perrin CAI. (ditched the foam filter for a k&n)
Stock top mount ic.
Cobb Acessport: Running Perrins stage 2, 93 oct., cai map. supposedly makes 307 lb/ft and 276 whp.

Now wether or not perrins claims are accurate, i dont know. But what i do no is that my car needs to be smoothed out alot and id like to gain some more power.

Are there any other 09 wrx's tuned here?. Over on Nasioc i have seen guys hitting 290+ whp and 310+ wtq.

My appointment is april 21st. cant wait.

Ive tuned a handful pretty fun cars. I like the 08 over the 09 because of the bearings in the engine. but they made the 09 stock very nice. nice suspension nicer interior ect.

there will be some overall gains, the biggest most likely will be with the tq, which if you are all about bottom end response for your driving, you will be very happy with.

thats exactly what im looking for. Perrins stage 2 map for their intake sucks.

The perrin regular stage 2/ stock intake map had way better pull around 2500-3000 rpms at 5-8 psi of boost. Now its like i have to floor it and boost it all the way up to at least 12-15 psi to get any power. Its like there is only top end power with the intake map and you really have to floor it to get any power out of it.

Also my low rpm cruising on/off throttle sucks. It really needs some work.

how much do you think you can smooth out the power. I really want to gain more torque throughout the rpm band.

It will be VERY smooth. One of the responses we typically get is that after the tune, it is smoother then stock (pre mods obviously!). The idle will be good, throttle response will be very different and much better. That is why we are not to fond of ots maps. They are great to preserve your car while waiting to make a decision on a pro tune, but are by no means optimal for anyone. No two ECU's/cars respond the same and the tunes cannot be treated as such.

None and I repeat none off the shelf map work properly PERIOD even if you have exactly the same mods on the car ... there is no two car same there will be always some differences.
