Not with the subie crew, tunning bolt ons screws with the stock tune enough to cause MAJOR issues sometimes. from funky MAF readings causing the car to run WAY lean, to DPs causing major boost creep if not controlled

no question gti. Those wrx are trapping around 93mph only. He would take you off the line if he launched correctly but you will reel him in quick
