Yes the price might be a little higher but it is what it is and the best I can do on price due to the EcuTeK License and Cable.

Now I do not see anyone mentioning the fact that at 2500 RPM there is an increase of 15 ft/lbs of torque. Might not seem like much but this is pretty massive for a car that makes 101 tq stock. That is basically 15% increase over stock and even on 87 octane.

Well it is what it is. The old RS (99-02) makes about the same stock and we make about 10 horsepower and 10 torque on these cars also and surprisingly have a lot of people purchasing these tunes and have only great things to say about the tune.

Main aspects everyone brings up (same on this vehicle)
- smoother power delivery and drivability
- linear power curve, no dips and hiccups under any condition
- improved mpg

Anyway maybe when the warranties are up. It is available on the website if people are interested. I am sure as soon as a couple start trying the tune you will notice the improvement and definitely seen the benefits of it. In the mean time, I am hear to answer questions.

For those of you who already have a WRX, STI, BRZ, FRS, GTR, etc... you can use the same cable to reflash to tune these cars also. Or if you know someone who might have a cable you can also use that to reprogram your vehicle.

I do have a special going on that drops the price another $50 so the total is $845 if you keep the cable and $495.00 if you return the cable which will be lower than Cobb if it even existed. Coupon CODE: DT-FB20-NA-50

To be honest the reason I have done a reflash for this vehicle was because I did them on the old RS (99-02) and they are great. Everyone really likes them and though we have not sold a whole lot, word does get around once a few are out there that it really does feel better, MPG is better, performance is better and though it might seem like low numbers you can not expect a whole lot out of an NA car.

I would love to see a tuning kit come out for the XV. I have a standard XV so one would think that would be easier to modify, no? I can't do something as simple as add a cold air intake to it.

Read in post 11 that it would void the warranty. So I'm guessing that even if you reverted back to the stock tune Subaru would see that it was changed?

Is this a fact?? Can they see if a tune has been uploaded in to ECU?? and then changed back to factory prior to taking XV into dealer for a service?? Coz that would kinda suck if they said HEY WTF and "we just voided you 5 year warranty"........

No. You just have to reset the ecu. Pop the old tune in. No tech is going to actively search for that with in the computer system, and if he does he's trying to put you down on purpose.

About that.... Can I purchase tune and DL it to my laptop and use..... what software? to upload in to ECU etc. Considering you are in USA I'm in AU for example.

Are other devices available like Cobb or Ecutek etc OK for this?

Cobb does not support non-performance vehicles, so Cobb is not an option.

Ecutek requires purchasing of their licensed products last I recall, and am unsure on whether they have anything for Subaru's FB engines.

Cobb is definitely out. As stated, they do not support anything not performance oriented. Because alienating an entire segment of enthusiasts is cool, I guess.

EcuTek is who Bill at Delicious uses. So basically it's a Delicious map, flashed using EcuTek's cable and program.

I am unsure of any other programs out there, other than RomRaider, which you need a definition file created. And doing that takes a very long time and is damn near impossible without a very expensive program to decide the stock tune.

Whatever you do, don't use Throttle Happy. Long story, just stay away.

So is this supposed to be done via Ecutek device/laptop program et al prior to loading up the original Tune prior to Dealer Visit or is there a big red button on the ECU box hidden under the plastic trim in the Passenger foot well (if its still in that location that is)

Serious question here just curious about the steps and the procedure, not that Id be doing it as I dont have Tune or a device...................................yet
