2018 2.5i Manual
Have not seen much about this yet for the SH. I am thinking of taking the plunge on one. Looks like even stage one has a significant torque bump.
I agree 100%. Stage two now, and then turbo swap and protune when I can find the money. That will probably be when my kids are in school and my wife goes back to work. Then my car would technically be out of warranty, and then the gloves come off.I will likely go stage two pretty fast. I would love to see some cobb maps for a VF52 or VF48 for our cars. I would drop for the turbo faster if I did not have to go the extra step of protune. Really I bet stage 2 would be enough for my DD needs.
AP is an abbreviation for Access Port, Made by Cobb Tunning. It is a system for engine management and after market tuning. Just buying and installing the Access Port with all other thinks stock will give you a power boost, and is know as Stage 1. This is a good place for anyone who is looking to get into power modifications to start.I have a 2010XT and I don't know what this mod is. Can someone please explain it to me.
LOL. Sorry, couldn't help it.For example, Stage 1 with 93 octane gas gives a 28.5% torque increase in the '10 but only 9.7% in the '09.
I do realize the need for a grain of salt, but in this case it appears they have data to back it up. If you go to Cobb's online dyno database, select Subaru->Forester->2010->Clark,Brandon and look at the two dyno plots, there is a 28.5% increase in the max torque.LOL. Sorry, couldn't help it.
There is no way you can have a 28% torque increase with an off the shelf COBB map without changing any hardware, sorry. Take those
numbers with a grain of salt, it's marketing figures. Every car is different, too.
If you are talking maximum torque numbers, I went from 211wtq at 3,750RPM stock to 255wtq at 3,500RPM with a VF43, downpipe and a tune. So, 21% gain (of course, powerband shifted, etc..). Conservative build, but a totally different car -- night and day.
Don't pay attention to numbers. I treat the AP as a tool that allowed me to make additional power modifications, not much more than that.
Yeah I saw that too and this is my take on it. The 09 FXT category on Cobb's website hasn't been updated since the v1.00 maps. The 2010 FXT category on Cobb's website is updated all the way to v1.02 maps. That's my only guess since the 2010 and 09 FXT use the same maps. This is just a guess but I was wondering the same thing.Does anybody know why the performance numbers are so different between 2009 and 2010? For example, Stage 1 with 93 octane gas gives a 28.5% torque increase in the '10 but only 9.7% in the '09.
