Videos, maps, logs and tips galore.
There is already a thread about this by me on osecuroms.org. I had alpha and beta testers with maps posted. The final result was a very safe and powerful 07 STI Stage 1 tune.
Also, I have another thread on my 06 WRX that shares much of my steps in making that Stage 1 map as well.
However, a nice thread about how to "protune" a car correctly would be a good idea. I do see this as a potential disaster for some people as there are many things you can and will miss, especially if the first car you try to tune is a turbo car. You can get away with many mistales on an NA car, not on a turbo car though. The 07 STI ECU code is by far the most complex and has many "gotchas" compared to older ECUs Subaru has used. It is not a good car to learn to tune on. Once tuned correctly though, it is an awesome machine.
