I have not had it on a dyno. I have a Cobb AP and am running (when not in economy mode to save a LITTLE $) the ots "Stage 2 93 (octane)" I have not had a customized map created for my specific car. The ots ones are working just fine. However, when I can, I will probably do this at pdxtuning or a similar well-known shop. Frankly, I'm a little nervous and too over-protective to do opensource on mine. I don't mind paying a lil xtra to someone for support, peace of mind and the ability to point fingers at them. Plus it's what they DO, unlike myself.
Originally posted by talonIVOh by the way I remember you saying your WRX was "stage 2", Have you dyno tuned it or did ya get a street tune? Just curious as to what your setup consists of and power you are making. I guess technically you could have labeled by 2005 WRX as a "stage 2" setup. If ya look in my garage I think I posted a dyno sheet... even think I started a thread with haha. And what did you use to tune with? I.e. COBB AccessPort, Open source? We did mine all open source.
I don't think you were asking me, but I do agree completely. :-)
Originally posted by ROCKYSDSReally? You did open source on yours? I love how the whole "stage" issue is always brought up by tuners and other industry professionals... it's really just a marketing tool utilized by the re-flash industry, and so many people get up-in-arms about it. But I do think there's some good concepts behind it... Stage 0 - Stock (and fully functional) Stage 1 - Minimum bolt-ons with base tune Stage 2 - Maxed-out bolt-ons with applicable tune Stage 3 - Turbo/Supercharger upgrade with applicable tune Stage 3+ - Serious modifications Do you agree?

You better Talon! All good brotha, I know you're reppin' with the best of us! And we actually got a request for decals so that a guy could put them on his wife's knockers... So that one's been played out LOL. Sorry RevRichmond, I know you're a priest and all, and don't expect you to match that one (evil) But I do love the idea of adding a wifey to our repertoire!
