Smile decat system / remap?

Hi, I am new to this site but have spent sometime reading threads, good stuff

I have just purchased a wrx wagon 2005 and would like to get a little more power / torque from it.

My questions are.

1. I have purchased a decat exhaust including up and down pipe and realise I will ned a remap, but I live in a area with no available tuners... What are thoughts on generic map, looking at using Allientech? not after squeezing every bit of power out but do want a safe map... thoughts please.

2. Is it worth fitting a knocklink to ensure safe map and where is best place to buy?

I have also purchased upgraded fuel pump, is there anything else I should consider?

Cheers look forward to the replies

cheers

live in Jersey CI

Would like to get generic map, then learn how to data log and in time something like romraider to make own changes.

Re: decat system / remap?

no offence man but if things were that easy i think everyone would be mapping their own cars.....

bob rawle comes to ireland once a month to map cars so im sure he or any other mapper would be available to you if you got in touch with them........

it def worth you while buying knock link....

as far as i know injectors are 440's in the wrx. so i would try get sti ones as they would be 550s

Re: decat system / remap?

Yeah appreciate how much skill needed in this area, maybe what I mean is I could data log after the gen map is flashed the send or post on here for some feedback as to weather the map was safe.

As I say not after squeezing every bit of power pos, but take your point and others on this forum looks like i should get done right once.

Just contacted Simon from JGM who seems to have very good rep and has suggested a few options for him to be able to map for me.

In the states they do map their own cars a lot, more of us in the UK are now also,
OP would be better on rom raider forum as you will find a OS mapper local to you,
Nasioc may be a better site for you, a lot tweek maps etc,
most in the UK think its specialised, but if you stop and think about it (and get your head around how subaru knock correction works) its nothing we werent doing 20 years ago, its just we have better equipment to see how the changes have effected the car now without strapping it on a rolling road.

I went to Simon at JGM from Sweden, worth every mile
He got 282.5 BHP and 340Lbft torque out of my 06 WRX and the only thing I have is a Green Panel Filter. Extreamly happy
