Hey guys i just got a grimmspeed 3-port, and know this thing REQUIRES a tune when installed, i've got an 05 wrx with downpipe, and spt intake on it and thats it for now.. Was wondering if Any of you out there have this installed on your car? If so would anyone be interested in helping me and kinda educating me on it? as well as maybe help me with a tune????

I'm not against making that drive..... only bout 3 hrs, from the sound of what i'm learning about the wrx is that a tune makes a "world" of difference on this car.

Whatever you do, make sure you hook the turbo/wastegate/return lines up correctly. Just went through a headache related to that with my recent gm bcs install.

Tuning yourself will take a minimum of weeks (probably months) worth of studying. It can be as much of an art as a science and some say you are always learning. You'll need software and a Tactrix cable and a lot of time. Most will tell you to go pro-tune because even the best open source will still not be as good as with a dyno to work it off of. You're looking at $350 for an open source tune from MKC which will probably be your best bet unless you can talk one of the very few here who can do it into helping you. FYI

You need a major reduction in your WGDC's and TD tables...

I can send someone a map if you find someone to flash.
