any one from the Pac NW looking for a reflash and tune w/ this open source stuff i will send you the website of a guy who did mine. $150 is what he asked me for 3 hrs. very repectable guy (certified hydra tuner) who tunes alot of subarus in the area w/ no complaints.


bigger and better than ever

Btw, it's openecu.ORG. And you download the maps off osecuroms.org.

Metroscub do u feel a big improvement in torque now? ohnowrx u said your buddy did and it a big thumbs up. i have all the supporting mods to go with it, but i dont want to do it and go i think it helped. we need a person to try it andget soem dyno results. closest place for me is chicago which is 7 hour drive.
After we have flashed the map he drove the car for about 200 miles because that's what the guy told us to do. he went out and raced this srt4 with stage 1 that used to pull on him from the roll and killed him by very far wich means it does really work. he would like to dtno his car also but we would have to go to chicago also and it's a long drive wich sucks. Flashing the map is very simple just make sure you save your stock map to your computer.

sorry i didn't reply to my own post, but the link above should have sti maps, if not, join the forum and ask around, someone could probably make you one if you datalog first, then send the file to them, have them tweak it with enginuity, then upload and be on your way to a reflash and more gains!

Wow, it can turn well too?

I just found a local tuner that does OpenECU tuning. I'll be ordering my cable on the 15th (pay day).

yeah i tune a 05 car his was hard to crank i uploaded a stage 1 map for him and he's a happy camp upload a few stage 2 in the area... kind of blows i have
