yep, just follow the instructions. the reflash should take anywhere from 5-10 minutes depending if you are reflashing for the first time (downloading your stock map to the ap)..Z

-20-22% from what COBB relays. 230 whp roughly.

04-05 is a little lower if I'm not mistaken.

Barely on the whp end, but considerably on the wtq side due to your extra displacement. I know 06-07 stg 2's that, after a protune, will see over 300wtq.

Ummm they didn't increase the engine size until 06 Longshot.. and yes it's that easy to increase the power in your car.

I wasn't talking about the OP's 04 wrx I was talking about prz's 07 who was quoted in my previous post. If I didn't know that I'd ban myself.

so i flashed over my car today at work and took it for a test drive and noticed no difference.

now b4 i did this the car has been sittin at my work waitin on the tuner to come in ### it was runing like shit and i didnt wanna risk anything.

so i get back and hook up to a scanner that we have at the dealership, and my egt sensor is bad, it will read way up to like 3k degrees and cut off and run like shit. then when we unplugged it runs right and reads bout 350 or so at idle, so now i need a new one or do the delete, but i might be able to get it fixed under warrenty.
