Either the Cobb AP or Utec.I personally like the AP,but don't recommend the E-manage.Stick with application specific stuff.The E-manage is not plug and play and is meant more for NA turbo kits.

+1 for cobb! Easy to use and works great. Scoobytuner.com will give you a discount (and possibly free shipping) if you call and tell them that you are a member of wrxtuners. I talked to Chris when I bought mine.

I love my AccessPORT. Can't beat it, and it's a great product!

me either but the owner of the shop, who had to fly out and take a class to get certified to install and tune this thing told me that the levels of adjustment he can get on the unichip are far greater than any other aftermarket ecu you can buy. then he brought up a good point and said the unichip is car specific, each car gets on the dyno and they tune and adjust until the reach the peak of THAT car. with for example the access port you just have the option to flash some generic map that anybody can run.
I'm not saying the access port sucks, i myself am very interested in the access port version2 because i don't really like the work this local shop does and i wouldn't trust them doing anything other than putting sway bars on my car!

That is why there is the cobb street tuner or better yet a protune.

Straight ECU reflash>piggy back ecu in my opinion.The Street Tuner/Protuner part of the AP is what makes it worth it.The ability to be able to totally delete/over ride CEL's is nice too.
