Wrx tuning help

Hi, I am buying a51 plate wrx wagon 214bhp.
Thinking about superchipping it for £499 giving me 244bhp as I think my golf turbo that i'm selling is faster at the moment, or would it be better to have it remapped ???

also on this subject once I get around to adding other stuff like a
dump valve,
stainless exhaust,
air filter
ETC.

will it need another remap or chip to take account of these changes, should i wait and do it all together cos I ain't got a clue lol

remap, dont bother with the superchip.

to keep the costs down for remapping, suggest getting the bits fitted and mapped to suit.

it also depends on how far you wish to go.

Only Trouble is where do you stop ? you get used to the power and don't think it's that quick anymore, like I have got used to my golf remapped to 200BHP and found the WRX is slower just holds the road somewhat better......................

i still cant stop, but funds are very low at the moment.

decent exhaust, panel filter & remap will give good results

mm, where to stop modding? um not sure yet, theres still perhaps half a dozen parts left on my car standard so theres a way to go yet, pmsl

scoobs and generic maps don't go hand on hand, so unless you wanna be paying for a rebuild then stay well clear, especialy super chips
