I say go for it. XPT maps are good but they can't beat a custom tune. I'd try to get them to settle on a fixed price. If they aren't familiar with the car and need more dyno time to figure it out,...

I've been there already. They have nothing for an 06 93 octane. I'm looking for something other than openecu.org. I was wondering if anyone knew about any other openecu sites.

Trying to find an OpenECU map

I'm looking for a stage 2 base map for an 06 STi. XPT has one for 91 octane but I want 93 and they want $130 for it which is rediculous. for that money I'd just spend the extra and go to the dyno....

considering subaru offers a short shifter from the dealer, i'd say you're pretty safe. they all do the same thing so they can't say an aftermarket damaged it where a STi shortshifter wouldn't.
