My '17 BRZ stock feels faster than my '13 FR-S OFT Stage 2 UEL 93 map, probably all due to the revised final drive.

They did a really good job with the Kouki addressing majority of the Zenki complaints.

But personally I don't think an OFT Stage 1 tune is going make a noticeable difference over stock, a well done handcrafted tune will though.

A few weeks ago I flashed my 2017 BRZ w/ the OFT Stage 1 v.4 tune, there is a bit of reduction in the torque dip and more aggressive timing above 3-3.5k rpm iirc. Throttle response is a little better and the car is a little easier to drive smoothly for daily use. If you don't plan on getting catted/uncatted headers in the future (or E85) I'm not sure if its worth it, unless you want the additional features like the quiet start feature (nice if you have a louder exhaust and live in residential area), launch control & flat foot shifting which could be nice if that's useful to you.

Sure, but they have areas in the ECU or BCM that record the amount of times the ECU was flashed, etc. If those don't match what the system shows its obvious the car has been messed with. Maybe they don't look at it as closely on the 86, but the wrx/sti world is very common. Same thing with GM/Ford(especially diesels)

I liked mine until the newer tunes came out. 2013 every once in a while would idle terribly on cold starts on the 3.0 and newer tunes.

Meh, sold it. Fun tinkertoy imo. You're probably better off getting a custom tune.

Go Ecutek and good tune, get Racerom

Do it right, do it once

Don't buy stuff that shows no gains i.e. a catless exhaust
