Like mentioned I'm not fully versed on AP's so I apologize for any confusion to anyone. It's now clear it's an OS term only then. So stage 2 it is Ringy lol!

IMO 93 is the only thing that should ever be put in any car, let alone a Rex lol! But start with the DP though. There's no cat on your up pipe so an AP and DP would be a wiser dollar spent. I know it's way more money, but the up pipe wouldn't really show much benefit till way later in modding. If you've only got around $200 besides the AP for modding then how about a (much needed) shifter upgraded? That would be a great mod for that price range. That's def my next mod! TiC Super Shifter is around $180 which is around the same as an up pipe. That and a stage 1 OTS would be a good way to go 👍

higher octane than your car is tuned for just makes you run rich. 93 in a car tuned for 87 is not going to hurt anything (running rich is pretty safe in moderation) besides maybe make your catalytic converter die a little sooner. It's not going to add anything though. The WRX is tuned for 91 octane from the factory. The factory map runs rich already, there's gains to be made with a re-tune even sticking with 91.

The benefits of high octane gas demand tuning to exploit on our cars. Some people like to have multiple maps to run based on what gas they have but this can be dangerous since you will tend to get a mix of gas when you do it. And gas doesn't stop at 93. There are several stations that carry 94 mattering on where you live. Some places, even 95. "Race gas" is typically available near race tracks at 100 to 104 octane.
