Was looking on opinions as to whether I should take my car into a tune shop (running on dyno), or would it be just as effective to get a stage 3 mapping for the car instead? I have done some research and have found similiar setups that go with a stage 3 mapping.
About the car:
2004 wrx w/ brand new factory long block
750cc dw injector
255 lph walbro fuel pump
cateless up pipe
3" down pipe
3" greddy exhaust all the way back
ACT 12lb flywheel
6 puck ACT clutch
clutch delay delete
Thanks for the help.
For the love of all that is holy. You're going to crap that transmission out if its a aggressive tune and you drive it aggressively with a 6 puck clutch on stock gears. My old 06 WRX TR that I sold. The next owner put pretty much the mods on you're describing minus the clutch and flywheel. Got it tuned at my tuner and the young kid called back in 3 weeks saying his transmission is toast. The kid made about 320 something whp and 320 something wtq and his aggressive driving blew up the gear box.
The older (02-07) WRX engine is pretty capable with a good tuner and quality parts. However the same can not be said about the transmission. Now depending on driving habits and maintainance practices you could be alrite. Just be mindful when you are wanting to launch or drive the car spiritedly.
