To Tune or Stock?

So there you have it - a factory tuned WRX that has an edge in performance over the standard variant. If you fancy a completely street legal WRX that has more spice, then get this.

I like it, simply because it has more grunt around the 2500-4000rpm range, and that makes it an effective tool for everyday driving purposes, and in heavy traffic situations.

And, if you like taking matters into your own hands, then the standard WRX might be more of a tuner's delight for you and your crew.

Based on our extensive experience driving tuned cars, it must be said that I have rarely seen an aftermaket tuner being able to match the magnificent spread of low end torque, and the powerband of the STi tuned ECU at such a price.

Don’t mind me saying then, that Subaru should consider offering the STi Tune as a permanent addition to the WRX lineup. Better still, make this car the new “standard” variant of the lot!

One thing though - It'll set you back by another $9 grand or so over the standard WRX 2.5 Manual...
