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.
No ish it cant be driven without an ECU, but Im pretty sure after they replace the ECU there gonna have to test drive the car to make sure it works
and 4 - 6 Days to reflash an ECU are you joking me, I dont care what anyone says it shouldnt take that long. An hour AT THE MOST. I wouldnt care about a backlog issue. I would wait for the part the stuff to come in, drop off my car and for this kind of fix pick it up the next day.
