So are you gonna tell us how you did it? (Here's the part where you say it was tuned with closed source programming)

Haha yeah the "Ecutek" in their signatures kind of gives it away...I'm hoping it won't take as long for this as it did for the original WRX open source tuning. Just a matter of the right smart guys having the time and resources to work on it.

not too knowledgeable in this area of tuning coming from an OBD1 car with distributor but has anyone tried to tune this car with an AEM FIC8

Maybe he'll join in on the fun if we mention him enough. Tephra please save us! I can't remember anybody else from the Evo forums right now that's awesome with disassembly.

ditto. I can't wait for an open tuning solution. I'm all for getting my car dyno tuned by a reputable tuner, but i need to know that i can adjust my map or my parameters when i see fit.

I'm spoiled by my s300 in my hatch. electronic adjustable boost control with boost by gear, the ability to save, load, and edit an unlimited number of profiles at will, changing any of parameters on the fly. I even mounted a touchscreen vga monitor in my dash so i can run a live display of all my sensor data instead of having ugly boost and temp gauges.

Hopefully one day we can do this to these cars as well.

It can be done but no one wants to do it for free aka open source

Right, which is understandable. I had to pay 800 or so dollars for my s300 hardware. The software is freely downloadable and basemaps are freely shareable, which is awesome. But you gotta pay to play.

If i drop a grand on a solution, i want full ability to modify it as i see fit. all of the parameters, and the maps. It doesnt mean im not going to happily pay for the tuning solution and for a dyno tune.

it was tuned with closed source programming..but fwiw, imho, as a guy who really likes driving, the changes made by tuning are worth the coin, I cant speak for the smaller vendors, but the master tuners DO know what they are doing from my conversations with ecutek, my advice is go Perrin or go Visconti, both masters in their area of expertise, there is no chance either is a 2nd best shop.

both guys seem to gave mad street props and really for under a grand, there isnt a better way to spend your money, besides adding a drop in filter, its a joy over OE. Heck, what perrin did to my accelerator pedal alone is worth tuning alone, power aside. raising idle, intake and exhaust timing changes, hot map switching, rev limited launches will open source do all that?

adding a intake, exhuast anything else is futile without a tune. total waste, if you ask me. I cant see holding my breath for open source to happen, it hasnt and I dont want to tune it myself at home without a dyno. silly.

Then again, I have flashed my ecu a few dozen times as a tester, as have a bunch of other guys to get us to a place where we actually have safe, reliable, tunes that are well worth the money from either vendor, this enhances the factory setup, stuff like valet mode, blip shift, the ability to datalog, its all kudos, if you want to unlock and enjoy the cars potential

its clearly dialed back in every way in its retail garb

trying to get what ecutek developed for free is as likely as you building a racecar from the ground up, its diminishing returns. Mervin and crew at ecutek have our car, they went and bought it for business, use, to make it better

tough to beat that in open source land

and so ecutek have made a patron outta me, having shipped my ecu to them in UK and worked thru the teething pains for this platform, I am a firm believer that the platform is sound, the powertain is solid enough that if you want to play, it feels safe to tune this thing.

Bullshit!
Plenty of people participate in the RomRaider project, which is free to end users. RomRaider is one of the most successful open source ECU projects, with a huge install base and very easy to use software.

The only thing hurting the BRZ right now is the low user base. There are ongoing efforts to dump the ECU, and it won't be long before the first basemaps are possible.
