Help regarding ppp 05 wrx

Howdy peeps!! I've got an 05 wrx with the prodrive package so here come the question. I'm thinking of getting it mapped but the guy asked if it was the prodrive ecu or not. On the pro drive website it states nothing of a new ecu just recalibration? Could any one confirm wats included in the ppp.Also should I upgrade fuel pump? Many thanks

The prodrive ecu has prodrives own map on a standard wrx ecu. It can be mapped. Consider a panel filter and decat or sports cat if you're gonna get it mapped

Re: Help regarding ppp 05 wrx

depending on the PPP set up,ECU will be mapped,sport cat,fuel pump,air filter are all part of the package,the motor should be putting out somewhere between 240 to 260 ish bhp....get it rolled !st and see what it's doing..

a decent mapper can overwrite the original map..my classic was PPP,now ECUTek mapped,well over 300bhp with supporting mods..

pretty sure turbo is a TD04, so wrx wont break 300.

Re: Help regarding ppp 05 wrx

On the prodrive website it says for the wrx ppp it's recalibrated ecu,which I thought was standard ecu with remap. Prodrive silencer an silicone y piece. Full pump was sti only I think? Any one able to confirm this?Can anyone please suggest a good setup for an exhaust system? There's so much to choose from! I like the vortex after burner but not sure to go for a full de cat? Again thanks for all the info.peace

yeah wrx didnt get fuel pump.

exhausts is a very persoanl thing, they all tend to sound different and look different. Have a nosey on some of the 'show us yoru car' threds to get some ideas
