The Stage 1 reflash for your Toyota 86, Scion FRS or Subaru BRZ adds increased torque across the board. While the OEM configuration might not be everything you hoped it might be, our Stage 1 reflash smooths out the entire band, offers a linear power curve and almost completely removes the mid range power dip. We have developed maps for a wide selection of intakes and the numbers represented below are based on the OEM intake system.
Figures are based on California 91 Octane (95RON) Fuel for Manual or Automatic Transmission
Peak Horsepower Increase: +8-12 wheel horsepower
Peak Torque Increase: +8-12 wheel torque
Maximum Horsepower Gains: +12-14 wheel horsepower @ 7200 RPM
Maximum Torque Gains: +10-14 wheel torque @ 4200 RPM
PowerBand Expanded: +500 RPM's (by nearly eliminating the dip)
Notable Improvements in drivability
Nearly Removes Dip at 4000 RPM
Smoother Power Delivery
Better Throttle Response
Linear Power Curve

Testimonial as seen in DSport Magazine (July 2013)
At DSPORT, we provide the best quantifiable and objective information possible so our readers can make informed purchases. Unfortunately, objective measures do not always tell the entire story. Sometimes a subjective set of eyes (or in our case, butt cheeks) can provide the missing bits of information. This intake shootout is a perfect example. After a week of not driving my car during the testing, I simply forgot how the FR-S felt prior to the tuning. Essentially, my butt-dyno lost its calibration.
Driving the "tuned" FR-S, I thought the car felt better, but I couldn't swear to it. Unsure if these improvements were real or just the product of optimism, I traded cars with my roommate, Ai Takamura. She drives a Subaru BRZ with the same modifications as my FRS, minus the tune. It took her less than a day to return with feedback, more like half an hour. The text I recevied read "this thing drives AWESOME!" This is precisely what can't be told by charts, graphs and numbers alone. The car does not feel one hundred times faster, but the power delivery feels much smoother and the power dip around 4000 RPM feels all but gone. While the right intake and ECU tuning will deliver roughly 7.0-percent more peak power, it will significantly increase midrange torque for smoother acceleration.
Turnaround Time on Tunes
Due to the heavy demand for tunes all tunes ordered online, orders may take up to 3 business days to process, but this is not a guarantee. This means a tune ordered on Friday may be delivered as late as midnight Wednesday the following week as Saturday and Sunday are considered non-business days.
