I presume Z has already flashed with this cable without mods (have to check previous pages).
Expect at least 3 weeks shipping.
Can't help mate sorry ... i gave up on the WCH cable after the voltage mods and bought the FTDI one which has no problems straight out of the box. I don't really know if the WCH cable is of more use on the older ecu's or if the mod's actually make it work.
Yep, flashed the updated STi map with the dx cable right out of the box. I didn't even try messing with any mods on the WCH based cable because I knew I had the second cable coming from China and was hoping that would work.
Mine was on an 04 STi ECU though, so the cable from DX worked out of the box, but i'm not sure if the voltage mod is necessary from a 16 bit ecu (02-03 wrx)
I would say try it out of the box to see if you can "read UCU" with ecuFlash. (green flash cables connected under the dash), if it doesn't, then go for the voltage mod
