0-60 times with just stage 1

I'm sure this has been discussed many times on here but I'm an idiot and I can't find it.

What 0-60 improvements have people seen with just an APR stage 1 ecu flash at the 93 setting?

Thanks!

i never measured it, but couse i've owned many cars in the past
it feels like a low 6 second car to me.
no way in hell anyone can see times like 5.2-5.5 (even with slics) with just a stage 1
these are stock impreza, Evo and maybe Golf R times.

Damn, I thought it would be below 6 sec's after the ecu flash. I like the changes after stage I so far except the vibration I now get sometimes in the dash at hard acceleration.

Well then, for $600 on sale for stage I that doesn't seem like much bang for the buck...how can there be the hp & torque gains & not much in results?

I'm curious how much in those power gains is actually getting to the wheels?

Coming from motorcycles... $600 is a steal for the power increase. I could easily spend $3K on upgrades and maybe squeeze an extra 10hp on my bike.

0-60 times vary based on your ability to launch but if you were to just go out on a track (not a drag strip) I'm sure you could easily feel the extra power stage 1 offers.

you also have to take your tires into account, i spin probably all the way till mid 3rd then im off getting some good tires you could probably get that 0-60 time you want.

check youtube videos with stage 1 or stage 2 cars vs stock. the midrange is way better, and stage 2 the top end is awesome.
