This first link has a little information about just about any version of the WRX, hope it helps some:Subaru Impreza WRX - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The next 2 reference to what is called opensource tuning. From reading and researching briefly it is said that this can/will work for your car. Im also guessing such stand alone units like the Hydra and Utec would also have JDM support, but I dont know for certain since I dont use either.
Opensource Read Up..
OPENSOURCE HOW TO: Flash your ecu useing opensource software

Not sure if this what you are looking for, just might be something to consider.

Ufortunately I dont know about the Utec, but it does have premade maps/stages for it. Just dont know if it works for the JDMs or not. And the Utec is also a piggyback.

I'm pretty sure the answer to that is no. I think you need a JDM ECU and you can't use the AP or the UTEC with it.
