Another New Guy (Introduction)

Hello Everyone,

New guy here - Name is Brian Vance. From Windsor Ontario, Canada EH
I'm a CNC programmer and I also run my own programs on Vertical Milling machines and Lathe's.
Just bought my first Subaru it's a 2011 WRX Limited. has 1500km Long story short it was the last of the 11 models on a lot near by and a buyer backed out of his deposit. I got a killer deal and have always had my eye on WRX's.

Previous Cars I have owned.
1993 Eagle Talon TSI AWD
1992 Eagle Talon ESI
2001 Mercury Cougar V6 SVT (conversion from Contour SVT parts)
2005 Mazda 3 Sport
2008 Caliber SRT4
2011 Subaru Impreza WRX Limited

As you can see this isn't my first AWD turbo car, I missed it dearly. So far I love this machine, have owned it for just over a month - but decided it's time to come to a forum and start learning more about this thing on the inside. I'm a complete NEWB when it comes to modding this car what's first what's next what's involved in the Stages etc etc.

That's pretty much it! Look forward to the role models.

hopefully that image will show up for you guys..

YES BLAZE2099 i was a 4g63t guy for a while, but got tired of fixing that damn money pit. I already love the Subie and after reading quite a bit of info on the site at work today I decided to go ahead and order a Tactrix and will be loading Eric's MAP.

thanks!

What can I expect from Eric's MAP tune? My car is bone stock, however I read about how terrible the stock flash is. That's why I ordered the Tactrix and will be spending the 85$ on his tune.
