The UTEC is end user tunable but it requires a powersource to change the maps if it is not in the car.

The UNICHIP cannot be reprogrammed by the end user, only by TXS or another unichip vendor.

It's not just the bolt pattern, you have to have the correct offset as well. The WRX requires at least a +48 offset, +50 is prefferable.
