If you don't have anything mature to say, please remain quiet or go elsewhere.
This thread is intended for informational purposes, it is not and will NOT be a bitch session for what you think might or might not happen.
Also, if you think an STi can be "test driven" with no ECU in the car, you might want to sit and think very hard about what that means for a while. It'll come to you eventually.
Subaru will eventually have a flash cartridge at every dealer to perform this update, currently there is only ONE (1) in the country, so the ECMs have to be sent to Subaru for programming and then sent right back. 4-6 days is an estimate based on the outside chance of shipping problems or backlog at SoA.
PLEASE DO NOT attack your local dealer over this issue. Subaru is making every effort to resolve the det issue, and there is ABSOLUTELY NO EVIDENCE that there will be a change in torque or horsepower. These are currently unknown variables and anyone who may try to tell you otherwise is speaking from a soapbox of ignorance and deception. It is HIGHLY unlikely that Subaru would cripple the performance of the vehicle in order to fix something like a small timing map glitch. These kinds of issues have been fixed many times in the past on other vehicles with no change in drivability whatsoever.
