Been monitoring with a snap-on scanner. Tells me everything.
"you cant run them on the same tune" <-- not sure what youre referring to.
Yes, cobbs maps calls for jdm pinks but there are plenty of top feed equivalents.

You keep saying how the 16g flows more and is more responsive. I've learned this awhile ago from researching and comparing. My question is have you personally felt the difference between the two? Not seen the difference on a graph.

Oh, and bringing your car to a track on an ots map is kinda silly.
My car is a daily driver and I do not beat on it.

A good tune for the 16g. I'm asking your opinion IF youve experienced the difference. From what ive heard, its a 50/50 with what people are more happy with. Thanks.
I've never driven a VF or 16G powered 2.0L. The only VF powered car I've driven is an STI. Apologies. My statements are from a technical stand point, not a butt-dyno one.

Pinks vs WRX/STI Blues are not directly swappable. The tune needs to be revised because the latencies are different. So they are not equivalent per say. Anyways, you're not getting Pinks so it doesn't really matter.
