Well the day finally came!
I drove my car the 150 or so miles to get to Harman Motive in Torrance CA today and finally got my 2006 WRX Protuned.
K&N Panel Filter
Invidia V3 Catless Divorced Wastegate DP
Cobb SS3" CBE
Cobb AP V.2
With those mods I managed to squeaze 227 WHP and 272 WTQ at 16.3 lbs of boost. This ended up being enough to be the strongest '06 WRX that they had ever tuned.
The baseline was with the Cobb Stage2 map installed directly through the AP V2. So you can see that the stock map from cobb is actually quite nice when it comes to smoothness. I must say though, after tune, my Christine pulls like a real bitch. I actually felt that I had to restrain myself when wanting to get on it from a light, simply because it feels so friggin fast now.
As far as gains go... gains were great. I am very happy with the results. For those wondering what the next step would be... Bigger Turbo. And that is a step that I am not going to do to this car. That is for another project. So... except for a GP Moto silence delete mod, this is it for power modifications.
All in all... its been a long time in the making, but I was grinning all the way home.
35 runs and every run was as solid as the previous run. The tuner was visibly impressed. HUGE
