Well, I just got my 2011 WRX pro-tuned by Cameron at CAMTuning.com - Subaru, Mitsubishi, and Nissan Engine Management and Dyno Tuning Solutions - Home
and I wanted to share my result with you guys. For those of you that have anything shitty to say, keep it to yourself please. Im not bragging here, just sharing. I think the prices on line for stage 2 (perrin,cobb etc etc)are over priced and wanted to do it on a budget..thats all.
I bought a used invidia DP of craigslist for $250 and picked up a K&N drop in filter for $25.(had a $20 credit on my autozone rewards card I used)
After I installed the DP I drove it over to get tuned, I never got Into boost and it never threw a CEL with the DP on. We strapped it on the rollers (dyno jet) and got after it. It was around 65F and I don’t recall the DA but I will check. The Altitude here is 5469’ MSL. Tune is on 91 octane, it’s the best we got here in Albuqueruque NM.
Edit:it was nice and cool that day and the density Altitude was only 6600' MSL. which is pretty low for around here. Ive seen it up to 8900'!!
Forgot to add, i know its not on the sheet, but Cam told me Im at 17PSI to 17.5PSI on the final tune.
I really wanted a base pull completely stock but that didn’t prove possible since I had to install the DP 1st. The downpipe was pretty strait forward, except the bolts and nuts are very, very tight from the factory. I used an impact on 4 out of 5 bolts to break them loose. The 5th one Started to strip on me so I took it to my local shop and they broke it loose for me for free, love those guys at super 6 tokyo automotive. Just make sure you use a 6 point 14mm socket in ½ drive. An 18” breaker bar was needed for the last bolt. I soaked them over night with PB blaster as well.
The down pipe to stock exhaust doesn’t seal very good. I even tried a new 3” 2 bolt gasket and copper RTV sealer and even turned the factory donut/gasket around and still didn’t seal tight. I ordered an adapter from grimmspeed today, that should fix it!
We did a couple pulls but had trouble with a cable and the data was getting frigged up, so we changed out a cable and put down the the top numbers in the pic below, so we used that as our base. I was impressed with that alone. Then the bottom number is the one we settled with.
We did put down a little more than this but I told him to be conservative and make sure the AFR’s were nice and fat. So he did.
I must say, Cam is one cool cat. He’s real easy to talk to and not a stuck up, my shit don’t stink type tuner unlike some of the “Supra” tuners Ive met. I cant wait until he tunes my 2JZ’d MK2 Supra. I would recommend him to anyone.
Heres the sheet....WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THAT TQ?...WOW! its neck snapping..LOL!
we probably did 8-10 pulls..so heres some ramdom pics of the monitor I took. Enjoy.
