Everything that was wrong with the stock tune (which was a ton), is now fixed with MAPerformance tune. Cobb's tune was nice at first but with this tune there is so much power up top and absolutely pulls till redline with no hesitation. Get this tune now!
Tune feels amazing compared to COBB's OTS stage 1. Pulls hard and strong all the way to red line and wants to keep going. Feels more aggressive than cobb's tune while maintaining the same gas mileage. Throttle response is linear and makes shifting/driving a breeze. I emailed Ian about receiving the tune and he instantly replied within the same minute! Best customer service there is!
MAP stage 1 OTS tune is a big improvement on COBBS' tune and even bigger on factory. Tune is smooth and stable. And, power gain is noticeable. Well, worth it!
Best bang for the bucks way better than the cobb stage 1 93 map.
The car feel amazing and the power band is so wide
You guys make an excellent job !
No more rev hang, incredible throttle response and no more drop off of power at 5k. I'm using the 93 time and couldn't be happier. Best money I have spent on the Subie thus far. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to wake up their WRX.
Super happy with the tune. The car feels very quick and throttle is very linear, compared to stock, and much more stable than the Cobb OTS tune for me. Great job, guys!
I have the OTS stage 1 tune, it's a great tunefor eing an OTS, had the cobb ots before and the MAPerformance tune was more stable and smoothing across the rpm range. I did have some issues with knock with the cobb OTS but haven't had any iddue with the MAP OTS, looking forward to going stage 2 pretty soon
I installed the Stage 1 91 map on my 17 WRX and it's the way it should have come from the factory. Incredibly smooth tune and finally normal throttle mapping. No more rev hang either! The harder you push the gas the more power you generate as a normal car should. No knock at all that I have seen, and I've had the tune on since early September and driven it under several types of driving conditions spirited and over mountain passes. Excellent work guys! I'll be coming to you guys for stage 2 down the line.
I have a 2017 WRX with the MAPerformance Stage 1 91 Octane tune. I wanted to give the tune a try after watching several video reviews on Youtube. It has the linear throttle response, much like the COBB Stage 1 OTS tune. The tune also has the same linear power delivery but kicks it up several notches. It pulls very strong and throws me back in the seat!
On the OTS tune, my peak boost was ~18 PSI. On the MAPerformance tune, my peak boost is ~20 PSI and it maintains boost more consistently throughout the rev range. Feedback Knock and Fine Knock Learning have stayed at 0; DAM holds at 1 both in stop and go traffic (hot day, A/C on) and during pulls.
I would recommend this tune if you plan on keeping the engine's stock components, but want more power. It is significantly stronger than the COBB Stage 1 OTS. Customer service is great! I placed my order at 7 AM and had my tune e-mailed to me before 12 noon.
Everyone has said everything possible about this OTS tune but more never hurts. For clarification, I have a 2017 Subaru WRX and have been waiting anxiously for months for Cobb to release the firmware for the my17 WRX. Well that day finally came a few weeks ago and I finally pulled the trigger and got the accessport and OTS tune from MAP. The accessport is nothing short of what you'd expect from Cobb. Now the tune is AWESOME. Don't even bother with the Cobb stage one tune, the MAP tune is 838461759952x better than stock. The shifts are smoother and easier, the pedal isn't full throttle at 25% anymore, the powerband is linear and pulls all the way to redline, knock is gone from the stock tune, blah blah blah blah blah. All you need to know is that you NEED this OTS tune because it'll make you smile and the butt dyno is better than your girlfriend (or boyfriend). Thanks MAPerfirmance!!
Love how the jerking and touchy throttle is gone. Car is so much easier to drive now. The extra power in the top end is also a big plus. I now don't feel bad about revving past 5k rpms because it has power up there now! This is how a car should drive. Customer service is also top notch. Thanks maperformance for making my car so much more fun and easy to drive!
Seen MA Performance YouTube page just randomly looking at 2016 WRX's videos as its addicting watching them as driving them and i stumbled upon Ian reviewing the Cobb Accessport. It soon lead me to their pro tune which i felt skeptical at first but figured with such positive comments in their YouTube review i figured ill shoot them an email. Once contacted the response was quick and easy! Within a few hours i managed to get the courage and bought the tune. Service Was BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL!!!!! I went to Install MA Performance Stage 1 tune on my access port and as soon as i went to do some pull's i was able to build more boost more quickly. Not only was the improvement in power noticeable, so was the comfort sitting in 5 o'clock traffic. MA Performance tune Has completely exiled the the Jerky blotch from stock forum and still manage to be noticeably smoother then what Cobb stage one had to offer. I already love the tune and cant wait until i take this for more spirited driving
THANKS MA PERFORMANCE
Very happy w/ this tune, drivability is excellent and it runs a lot better now.
Revs just keep on climbing very smooth and linear all the way to redline.
So much hidden power compared to that horrible factory tune (c'mon Subaru!!!!!!) But I can feel that intake and exhaust will really wake this flat four up. Stage 2 coming to a subie near you :)
Tks Ian for the tune, still free if you get the accessport from them. Can't beat that!!
Seems like once the ecu is flashed the tune becomes progressively better as you drive for a bit. Initially it felt OK, but after an hour or so i realized the powerband had shifted...instead of short shifting at 5k rpm because power died i found myself shifting around 6800rpm. And the rpm's do come quick! Feels much nicer than stock. Boost also seems to peak 22 to 24psi for a longer duration compared to stock. Monitoring my DAM, knock feedback and fine knock i have only seen a maximum of 4 reported on fine knock and feedback using 4th gear from an uphill dig ( i wanted to induce knock). On normal full throttle usage i see a report of 1.41 on fine knock during hot 90 degree days...well within norm. DAM has never moved. Keep your engine in the happy zone boosting above 3300rpm and knock is non existent on. Digging from low rpm in higher gears seems to induce some knock and that seems to be the same with the stock tune.
Good job MA.
I have spent the last week running the Cobb 93 stage one tune and absolutely love it compared to the stock tune. No herky jerky, it's smooth like butter. And watching the tach climb almost instantly kept a smile on my face. Here a couple of hours ago and a half personal day from work I have this MAP tune flashed to the car. I have now maxed out my boost gauge and the main thing going through my head is "weeeeee". I highly recommend MAP tuning and they also have great customer service! BIg shout out to Ian :) Frankenstein is out of the box!
