scan tool

Hey Y'all

New to this post, so consider this an introduction.

I've been working on cars for a long time, but I'm pretty new to OBDII computers. My 07 WRX is my first exposure to extensive (or excessive) engine management.

Can anyone recommend a good (and cheap) scan tool for the Sube? Something that's compatible with other car makes and models would be ideal. Relative prices and where to buy it would be useful.

Not sure if the stock ECU on the Sube can be reprogrammed (likely not) but a tool that can do more than just read codes sounds like a better purchase. (Hey, don't make fun - I'm used to rebuilding carbs and dealing with 30 year old engines!)

Thanks loads,
Technophobe

As far as scan tools the opensource route of tuning can do this and is relatively cheap. The Cobb AP is also able to do this, but a little more higher. The subie ECU is reflashable to over 100 times or so. If you have questions concerning EM(engine management) check out the tuning section on the forum. LOTS of info there.

But anyway welcome to the site, enjoy the car
