Tuning Developments Stage 1 Performance Tuning Package for the Subaru WRX STi 2014 onwards with EJ25 engine.
Tuning Developments have developed this package on our own 2014 Subaru WRX STi, having picked up the vehicle in standard form; we set about getting some baseline runs of the car on our in-house Dyno Dynamics 4WD dyno. The results were impressive, making 296hp and 308lb.ft torque. A promising start.
We then set about looking to make improvements. We have fabricated our own in house turbo back exhaust system which is available in both resonated and non resonated variables. Our particular vehicle uses the resonated system for quieter exhaust volume when cruising and on the motorway and so forth, yet gives off the classic Subaru boxer rumble when you start pressing on the throttle. We decided to use 3” tube throughout the system as to aid air flow as much as is possible. This also future proofing the exhaust should much higher power outputs be a consideration for the future.
Along with this, we changed the standard air filter over to a K&N panel filter, still utilising the standard air box setup. Using the excellent ECUTeK tuning suite, we then set about tuning the car on the dyno to see what improves we could make with the new, reworked intake and exhaust systems.
Our Stage 1 remap brought power up from 296hp upto 329hp as peak increases, not a bad increase. However throughout the mid range we’re actually seeing an increase of 60hp over the standard car! Torque figures are up from 308lb.ft to a mighty 370lb.ft which really does transform the drive of the Subaru WRX STi. Dyno graphs below show the vast power output difference from the standard car to the Tuning Developments Stage 1 Package trim.
