HELP!!! MY12 WRX 280awkw currently. Suggestions on what to do next

Postby jake87 » Wed Aug 30, 2017 3:01 am

hmmm

MY12 wrx Premium with sti driverain conversion has 280awkw on 98 octane pump gas

Hi everybody, this is my first post on the forum. Go easy on me. Lol

I'm looking to chase more power, here's a lift of the mods I already have. Any suggestions would be appreciated, please forgive my incompetence regarding terminology And shop talk

- fully built motor with manly 2.6l stroker kit.
- Blouch dominator 1.5xtr ball bearing turbo
-WRX STI 6 speed gearbox
-WRX STI Hubs,brakes and diff
-WRX STI Spex R wheels
-WRX STI suspension
-ID 1000cc injectors
-full fuel surge tank setup
-invidia uncattered headers
-TCP full 3in exhaust with 1x cat in down pipe
-ARP 625 custom head studs
-Cosworth head gaskets
Mishimoto radiation + caps
-heavy duty brass button clutch
-process west top mount inter-cooler
-GFB blow off valve
-Mishimoto baffled AOS catch can
-Cusco brake stopper
-Whiteline sway bars front and rear

I think that's all the main mods.

Im leaning towards getting e85 Flextune setup and a standalone ecu like EcuTek for features like rev limiting, flat foot shifting, downshift blipping, launch control and full custom tuning.

The DCCD isnt setup and there is no wiring for it coming from the plugs in the diff's. can DCCD even be wired up to standard wrx ecu?

What's involved with setting up DCCD to a WRX that has STI running gear.

The car won't be my daily driver, but driven often. Will be going to track days here and there.


Thanks in advance for advice/suggestions

You can do all that with the stock EUC, see for example the Merp Mod on Romraider forums.

I'm sure throttlehappy/kidotuning can get it sorted for you without needing a standalone.

You'll need an external DCCD controller such a DCCDpro or MAPdccd to control that, the stock WRX ECU cant do that.
