Australian VB WRX Updates – 2024 MT + 2022-2023 CVT Accessport Tuning

Big news for our VB WRX friends down under!  Today, we’re excited to announce a few big updates for 2022+ Australian market WRXs.  First is the addition of MY2024 WRX 6MT tuning support, a continuation of the standard support for manual transmission WRXs we have offered since early 2023. We are also SUPER excited to announce the expansion of tuning support to CVT equipped WRX and WRX Sportswagon!  Finally, power output of our Off The Shelf maps for all ADM WRXs have been increased!

Accessport Tuning

Introducing the Accessport for your 2024 Subaru WRX 6MT.  The Accessport is the world’s best selling tuning solution for Subaru.  The Accessport will currently ship with two performance maps for either 95 or 98 RON fuel, a Stage0 map which mimics factory calibration data, an economy map, and anti-theft map.  Note : v301 maps include some slight tweaks to ALL ADM 2022+ WRX maps that increase power slightly and also reduce the likelihood of slight knock events.

Included OTS Maps

  • Stage0
  • Stage1 91 (95 RON)
  • Stage1 93 (98 RON)
  • Stage1 Economy Mode
  • Vehicle Anti-Theft Mode

Engine Safety

Beyond increasing power, we have also implemented a couple of safety measures utilizing factory logic and tables in an effort to maintain or even increase reliability.

In situations where Oil Temperature is above 250* F, maximum power will be reduced to attempt to mitigate engine damage from excessively-high oil temperatures. Power will be restored once Oil Temperature falls to 248* F or below. This level of heat should not be a concern during normal street operation but may come into play during extremely high ambient temperature operation or if using the vehicle in a motorsports environment.

The factory intake temp vs. boost compensation is also fairly conservative on the cold side (IE, removes a lot of boost as intake temperature decreases) and fairly aggressive on the warm side (IE, does not remove much boost as intake temperature increases).  Our Stage 1 performance calibrations will not be as active in cold scenarios, but more active as heat increases.  This should help make the car feel better in “boost weather” as boost targets would not decrease as much as it would stock when temps drop.  On the flip, with a slightly more aggressive approach, we hope to mitigate risk when heat is at its worst.

Power Gains

Enough about that, on to the numbers!  Below you will see power output of both Stage1 95 and Stage1 98 RON when compared to stock.  Increased power under the curve is substantial for both 91 and 93 octane variants of the Stage 1 calibration.   Peak increases are found where the motor makes it’s maximum output for torque or horsepower.  Max increases represent the single largest delta between stock and tuned. Average increases  represent the overall added power under the curve.

ADM 2022-2023 Subaru WRX CVT Support

Our initial launch of Accessport tuning support was limited to vehicles equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission as we were not yet comfortable with turning up the wick on SPT-equipped cars.  Today, that changes as the ADM 2022-2023 WRX CVT is now supported by the Accessport, Off The Shelf Maps, and Accesstuner Pro.  Yes, this also includes the VN chassis WRX Sportswagon!  One note, we are still on the hunt for a MY24 WRX CVT ECU dump.  If you have access to one, please reach out to our Customer Service Team at 1-866-922-3059 or [email protected] so that we can add support.
