This rear strut tower brace came well packaged from Cusco. It is incredibly light-weight for its size. I roughly weighted it and it weighs about the same as some kitchen flat pans. MAP's shipping was absurdly fast. The package arrived before I even got home.
Installation took 2 hours, which involved removing the entire back seat and everything in the trunk. It very slightly neutralized the Evo X's rear-induced understeer for street driving, and gave an illusion as if the front end somehow weighed more during hard cornering, in a way that it improved the rear end behaviour's predictability. Its greatest benefit is that it noticeably defeated the rear end's tendency to slide post-apex without warning and thus improved safety and handling. Cusco's OEM-grade craftsmanship is well known, but I'm the most surprised about how light (and yet strong) this piece is, which makes me happy like a child in Christmas.
The can itself seems to be of very good quality. The install gas some hoses a lot closer to some parts than the install video did and it concerns me about the metal contacting the hose and putting a hole in it. Only time will tell . I haven't had it long enough to comment on what it catches, but on days it hasn't been super humid with the a.c. Off, I was getting 31 mpg in the city and 26-28 with the a.c. on. That's a bit of improvement. I guess it's due to the cleaner air going back into the engine. It's designed in such a way that emptieing it isn't to hard, but when it comes time to washing the filter out, it's going to be a real pain. You will have to either uninstall the whole thing, or risk dropping these VERY small screws down into the vehicle. Those screws, which bolt the can to the mounting bracket ,one is especially hard to get to while installed.
The product, while each piece came separately in sealed bags, was kinda thrown into a large cardboard box. Registering this with liability on their site was a royal pain as their site has technical issues, I had to actually go to mishimito,and also send about five emails back and forth to get it registered.
Awesome product. Oem fitment. Easy instructions. Installed in minutes. Fast delivery. A+++
These pads are a great upgrade vs a stock pad replacement. Great stopping power with stock rotors; and customer service from Ian was excellent. Very nice person to speak with. Five stars; and I would definitely shop from MAperformance in the future.
Fast shipping and when you install it gives the engine a good look works great I installed mine because I got an E85 kit so works perfect!
NGK are the best and of coarse MAPerformance gives you a great price any other place it's a little more expensive but it's great and can feel the difference
Needed a new manifold ASAP, original order was on back order for 8-10 weeks, MAP offered me a burnished unit at a discounted price. Quick shipping and got me going again quickly. Highly recommend this team for their support.
I have a 2016 Subaru WRX I've had for a few months and was getting very frustrated about the stock configuration of the throttle mapping and the standard safety parameters of the stock ecu. I live in California where the market is flooded with different opinions and types of tunes. After getting my Accessport and being really disappointed with the OTS Stage 1 tune from COBB I was looking for a tune that would fit my driving style better. I purchased the MAP OTS Stage 1 91 tune and have been nothing short of pleased with the outcome. the tune has more power and a smoother curve through the RPM range. I've been running the tune now for the last few weeks and have had no problems. Currently in the California summer I've noticed the parameters changing feedback from the computer making corrections, at first I was really concerned but after talking to Ian and others in the MA Performance team, I have a much better understanding with the new platform. Thanks MA Performance for all the love and help. Will be purchasing more quality products from my favorite aftermarket performance company for my platform.
Got the ACT HDSS with the Streetlite Flywheel and installed myself on my Evo X. Wow, what a difference. First of all there is much less rev hang on the high RPMs with this flywheel and with the clutch it works really really well. The only problem if you may call it a problem, is the initial engagement. At first it took me a while to get used to it. You have to give it a bit more gas to get going smoothly, but not as bad as i thought. Once you get used to it, it is just like stock really. I highly recommend. The quality is great. Now the pedal feel in my opinion is a bit lighter than stock, but i also installed the AMS clutch master cylinder, so I don't know if its because of that.
Highly recommend this product. I love all the help I got from the guys working at MAPerformance: super nice, super knowledgeable and very supportive.Did I mention that I get my packages within a day after ordering. Super fast shipping. Thanks. Very happy all around.
I was looking for a new shift knob and wanted something really light and one that looked nice. This one hit all if that and with a good price. Now I wear medium size gloves and this feels prefect in my hand. Only con would be the packaging it came in, would have preferred a box with the AMS logo, but that's me really knit picking. Overall, amazing shift knob and would recommend to others.
Item received in nicely packed condition. Item yet to install am still waiting for the charge pipe arrival and install together.
The best easy to install and you don't have to tuning
And I like the sound thanks .
Well made intake, easy to install - significant increase in intake and turbo sound. I love it !
Great product easy to install.
I purchased this kit for my 17' wrx. After getting a quarter way through the install I found that the 17' has a different connector on the CCV side (not spring retainer). I was not able to remove this piece for fear of breaking. Both MAP and Mishi could not offer any remedies to the situation. The PCV side catch can fits great and went on with no issues. Kit is of great quality and would give five stars if there wasn't an unresolved fitment issue. I will be holding on to my CCV side system for hopes of a solution. Both MAP and Mishi answered my phone calls within minutes and offered all the help they could. Hope they find a solution soon.
This is my second Cobb Accessport (Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X). To be perfectly honest, the difference between stock and Cobb Stage 1 in my Evo was more than with my MK7. However, after a few days I received the MAPerformance custom tune from Ian and as much as there was a very noticeable difference between stock and Cobb Stage 1, there was as much difference between Cobb Stage 1 and the MAPerformance custom tune. The biggest difference is felt as soon as the boost kicks in. It was like the first pull in my Evo with the Cobb Stage 1...I was blown away. For the money spent you can't get a better upgrade for your MK7. I love this thing!
The stock WRX has 2 flaws: the engine is crap above 4000RPMs and it doesn't perform well in hot, humid climates.
Remember that big shyteatin' grin you had the first week of owning your WRX? Couldn't wait to finish the break-in period and see what happens above 4000rpm...
Then you lost your grin.
Well, friends, I can tell you: the 93-octane MAP tune will restore your grin permanently!
It's not just the power... Yes, it's FAF now, but there's more. It just behaves now; it's obedient. Driveability is DRASTICALLY improved by no longer having to floor it all the time. (in fact, I don't feel the need to floor it nearly as much)
Furthermore, in the Winter, my WRX felt fast and fun. But, in the Summer, it just felt really slow! Maybe it's the A/C, maybe it's the hot/humid air... Just seemed really slow without the MAP tune here in Houston.
Well, enough is enough. After living with it for 2 Summers, I thought the MAP tune couldn't hurt... So glad I trusted MAP with this... Now my WRX is a fun, fast, FLAWLESS car.
This is a tune for everyone.
Everything work perfect I extremely recommend are the best
Exactly what I expected
It works. However, I had to get 3m double sided tape as the thing later that was applied failed and the mount fell a few times. The lock also is comes loose every 3 days or so and the access port shifts. Minor fixes but annoying. Would be 4 starts if I didn't have to fix the lock so often.
Just want to confirm it fits a 2017 WRX - it definitely helps remove wheel hop - common when you try to let the rear end slide a bit.
Don't expect a world's difference with shift "bounce", but for the low cost, it's a good improvement.
When you install it, you'll need to support the differential with a jack stand or just a jack.
The filters arrived on time package perfect and work awesome 100 thumbs up
Brought a axle back system and had it installed ong I love it a couple friend's have other systems on their vettes and they're so jealous of the bullet system on my vette best decision I have ever made wasnt sure i would get the sound i wanted without doing alpt of other stuff to my car but it totally exceeded my expectations great system for halftime the price of other systems i looked at and definitely way better sound
The customer service was excellent and I received my parts fast. They were able to answer all of my questions that I had about the radiator that I purchased.
The mishimoto radiator exceeded my expectations and was a perfect fit.
Between service and shipping. MAPerformance is great. Deff would recommend. No problems or complaints. Getting the Accessport was easy guys were ready and willing to help.
HOLY COW! What a difference a flash makes! I've driven my 2017 WRX MT for over 14,000 miles, so I'm very familiar with the squirty jumpiness of the stock tune. As soon as I pulled out of the driveway, after flashing the Cobb Stage 1 - 91 octane tune, without any other hardware added, I noticed the extreme difference. Easy take off. Linear throttle response. No rev hang between gears. No dead spot at 4200 RPM. It's simply awesome and like many others state, the WRX should have come from the factory this way.
It drives much better, at slow or fast takeoff and like any other manual tranny car, now. PREDICTABLE.
I plan on driving with the Cobb tune for a few weeks before flashing the MAPerformamce, tune, so I can fully appreciate the difference. I sure hope I can come back and edit this review.
I absolutely love this thing. Gave the car a great sound when letting off the throttle. When driving the car gently you can keep it hush hush. After I put an injen intake on in addition it was hard to keep the blow off valve quiet. It sounds really loud and wicked under full acceleration let off. Installion was really simple with a 4mm Allen wrench and only takes a few minutes. Looks good too. The red color is great looking too.
I was looking for an exhaust that would get me as deep a sound as possible on the EcoBoost and this does it. It sounds great under load and at cruising speeds, the sound fades away without an annoying drone.
Great quality,easy install, and fast shipping.
Easy to install and took about 1 hour to do. MAP has a video guide for install and its exactly how it goes. Pump works great and fairly quiet. MAP always has awesome service!
Easy installation a whole lot better than your stock. Nice smooth ride. Best bang for your buck!
Received my charge pipe today as promised, saw some reviews that this didnt fit well on the N55 motor but I can say that is not the case. Took less than 30 minutes to remove cracked factory pipe and install new one. All sensors still clear and the car is driving great. Excellent product and no issues with delivery.
Recommended for keeping your engine bay looks nice and cool. Nicely packed and fast delivery.
Bought a 2015 wrx limited in the area. My first stop on the way home was maperformance. The guys were quick to get me set up. Ian threw the map stage 1 tune on the accessport and even took the time to throw it in my car for me.
1000 mile drive home blew by. The car is crazy fun to drive. Every toll booth was an excuse for me to wind through the gears again. Much improved tune over that very agressive power curve of the stock tune...
Excellent first purchase for the wrx.. def will do more business with these guys....
Relatively cheap mod but definitely makes a noticeable improvement on overall handling of the car . Obviously very easy install & standouts in the engine bay
Mods: COBB AP, Nameless 3 inch axle backs. I've had the MAP map for about a month. When I first got the COBB AP and installed it for the first time on my 17 WRX I was not impressed with COBB's stage 1 OTS map. It is not as hyped up as everyone made it seem. The stock map in my opinion had a better feel. So after about an hour with the COBB map and a little research I stumbled on Map Performance's stage 1 map. I read nothing but great reviews so for 75 bucks I figured why not give it a shot. Thank goodness I did you guys hit it out of the ballpark with this map. The boost, torque, and overall smoothness in the power band is remarkable! This is how the WRX should come from the factory (take some notes Subaru sales would probably increase). I will definitely come visit the MAP stage 2 maps when I decide to add a down pipe and intake. You guys are awesome keep up the outstanding work! If you own a 15+WRX this map is a no brainer.
Bought this for my 2013 Lancer Ralliart. The price was reasonable. Shipping was super fast I got it within 2 business days. It looks amazing and definitely made the 8 hp difference. Would definitely recommend.
There is nothing to be said here that hasn't already. The tune from Cobb is great fixes everything that is wrong with the stock tune. I had it on that for two days before the MAP stage one reflash. Holy cow it's a totally different beast now. From customer service to shipping, Ian's quick turn around on the tune to the constant great service I have had; everything was perfect. I will only be purchasing from MAP from now on and am so glad I bit the bullet on this item. Stop looking at it and do it, you will be glad you did.
If you get accessport through maperformance, they give you their off the shelf tune for free!
Car feels so much smoother than stock tune, and pulls a lot stronger than cobb tune.
And the power doesn't fall flat on your face after 5k.
Although 3k punch isn't there anymore, its lot more drivable in local, much much faster in highway.
Car sounds more aggressive for sure.
I would definately recommend to those of you who wants to keep their stock parts!
I have been using my exhaust for a little under a month now and I have been enjoying the modest boost in power and torque, however what really gave me the smiles per gallon were the nice crackles and pops when coming off compression. This exhaust definitely got my little Fiesta ST the extra little push it needed.
They are the best I always have in my cars the are precisely
Super happy with the results.
As advertised, best price I could find as well!!!
I know its not MAP's fault as it was an oem bolt but one of the bolts snapped clean in half with hardly any pressure. So then I was stuck drilling out a bolt from the block because of a poorly manufactured bolt. It was even more frustrating because two of the bolts when I removed the timing cover snapped on me (they were fairly rusty) so it was just icing on the cake when trying to put it all together and that happened.
Ride feels a little stiffer . Did notice a big improvement on turns ..I installed it on my daily Evo x and I really like it . Dropped 1 inch and gave it that clean drop look. Great product for daily driving and here and then take it to the track..
Excellent prices and GREAT service !! Bought both wastegate and bov for single turbo. Swapped to twins and ordered another set. All i have used is tial and very pleased
I just installed the IAG AOS and love the looks and hope it performs as well as I have herd. The only problem I had was the instructions for install and was slightly lost. I did manage to figure it out and I was a slight bit short on 1/2 hose but will make it work. Other wise I am very excited to make the edition to my build.
Literally takes 2 minutes to install and works good. I like it.
