If you just want a simple form of staged engine management then go with AP. If you want to get into advanced tuning go with the UTEC.

Well I had troubles w/ my UTEC and in all honesty, the guys are TXS were jerks about it. They insisted that I did something wrong when I had three guys who are all experience w/ the WRX and UTEC check my work and said it was perfect and they couldn't figure out the problem. So I sent it back, got an AccessPORT a few months later and it worked perfect. It pulls hard, or should I say pulled hard because the car doesn't even run anymore.

Well, everyone knows what my opinion is... (although it may be changing soon .)

But, I have never had any problem with TXS's customer service.
