Vivid Racing introduces the new Stage 1 upgrade package for the 2008 and up Subaru WRX sedan or wagon. This power package is meant for those that want to keep the car looking and sounding stock, but gain horsepower, torque, fuel economy as well as reliability. The factory equipped ECU tune from Subaru are very lean to help improve stringent emissions standards. While it helps emissions, it is harmful to the motor. This has the Subaru WRX running very lean and in some cases, is the cause for motor failures. With a safe and reliable motor in mind, Vivid Racing tunes your Subaru WRX with our VR ECU Flash and a Agency Power lightweight crank pulley. The CNC machined aluminum crank pulley retains the factory diameter but saves almost 4lbs in rotational weight compared to stock. This not only improves throttle response and horsepower, but can reduce engine wear and tear. Finally, we add an Agency Power short ram intake to the Stage 1 package to help your turbocharger breathe better. The short ram intake features a K&N cone filter that attaches to an aluminum MAF tube where the MAF sensor sits on a CNC machined aluminum mount. This intake does give your engine a more audible tone, but more importantly, improves efficiency. The VR Stage 1 kit is good for 40hp and 45ft/lbs of torque to the crank.
The VR ECU Flash requires you to mail in your ECU to us unless you have the appropriate OBDII cable where we can email you the files to load to your car. Regional customers can come in to receive the ECU flash dyno tuned. The VR Flash can also add a 2 Step Launch Control to your vehicle. Please see VR Flash Instructions Here.
