I wouldn't get tuned on 93 octane gas. I would get tuned on 91 and fill up with 93.

You have spent a bunch of cash on parts but you are going cheap on a OTS tune? And you are going to play with the tune yourself?
And you need to learn to tune?

Save yourself heartache and get a pro tune!

if you have your eye on a 911 turbo, id sell the STi now and look for 2004 911 turbo. very nice ones can be had in the mid 40s.

and if youre looking at a 911 turbo, then operating costs are not your concern.. in which case, i would stick with the STi and bump it up to a solid stage 2 and enjoy it for the next 100k miles. not worrying about the warranty [ or the 5,000$ 911 clutch job. ].

you do not want to find yourself in a situation where you have spent porsche money on a subaru which no longer drives you to work. or puts a smile on your face.

Why tune for 91 instead of 93?

Thanks enoxard what is a solid stage 2 build? I'm getting a protune on Wednesday and I'm going to keep this sti for at least 50k mile then search for Porsche 911 or gtr. What do you think with my mod on this 17 sti so far? Thanks again for helping and this goes to everyone on here.

Perrin and Cobb are par products with high prices. lists with so few variety in company and tons of parts from companies that are highly commercialized make me wonder how much research has been done.

Base on my mod that I'm choosing is just for increase power and torque a little I have no intention to race or track. I was wondering how much power and torque I would get out of this mod compare to stock? And I'm wondering how much the car worth for now maybe I sell it then get myself a Porsche 911 it just a thought. Lastly, if anyone of you have a good source of learning how to tune please post it because I'm really interested in tuning. I'll post my result and picture after tuning this Wednesday. Thanks again for all your help.

Oh about the warranty it's important but Subaru always find something to reject it anyways so if you love the car and have passion for it just do it. As I see a lot of people saying "you pay to play" lol.

all broken stock EJ I've known had been corvered by subaru. If your engine is full stock, they can't reject it.
