Default 07' 2.5i Open-Source Maps available here!

Hello Everyone,

Thanks to the hard work by my tuner Master2192 (Sean, who passed away in a tragic accident with his WRX) I've acquired the MAPs from his girlfriend which a lot of you have been eagerly awaiting.

These maps were used to tune my car w/ various mods and I would not recommend using them as is (unless your car is remarkably similar). With some tweaking they should be quite nice.

I will not be providing any support for these maps and it comes as-is. These are free to all, so please don't go posting them elsewhere asking for $$.

Noteworthy mods when maps were taken:

Genuine Borla UEL Headers
Highflow Cat
2.5" 1 piece magnaflow exhaust w/ resonator
LW Crank Pulley
Injen Cold Air Intake

DOWNLOAD: http://rapidshare.de/files/38768737/...anual.zip.html

All credit goes to the man who made it possible and to who was immensely respected in the NASIOC community: Sean, (Master2192)

You have been 'mastertuned.'

Hats off to the man who did N/A Tuning
My condolences.

At the same time, I'm sure we could all use this with great appreciation.

When I first found out that he passed I was really upset because I was emailing back and forth with my map asking him to modify it for me. I never knew him, wish I had. Am at a loss for words.

Yeah, that is a huge bummer. I remember reading a bunch of posts by him and thats part of what got me into OpenSource tuning, our loss for sure. Thanks a bunch for the maps, i cant wait to look @ them.

Actually, if you wait a little bit, one of my friends here in town who worked closely with Sean is setting up a website that will contain every tune Sean ever did. His girlfriend has given the laptop to someone with the knowledge to hunt down and extract the ROMs and correlate them to the car they belong to (for a mod list). All that will end up on the site.

Frighteningly, if you have NA tuning questions, it looks like I'm the person to ask with Sean no longer with us.

I have two (89 and 91) maps that Sean provided for us '05 guys. I'll throw them out there if they aren't already available/provided. Also, I'd be willing to share my own ROM as well, although I think thats better suited to a ROMraider thread. You are a self-proclaimed n/a expert Ty, congrats!

In short there is no 'target #' per say for most of the parameters you can to tune. The parameters depend on many factors such as mods/climate/fuel etc. Two identical cars could individually perform better with custom tunes.

Here's a starting point:
http://www.romraider.com/Documentation/RomRaiderFAQ

The two books at the bottom of that page are great for those with little background. It takes studying, time, and patience if you really want to understand your car and what the heck you are tuning.

A good starting point might be to compare the timing map, fueling map, and OL/CL parameters between your base ROM and the ROM's available above. This will allow you to gain insight on one tuner's (SEAN-RIP) strategy. Again, every car is different, but this be helpful starting point provided you understand the ECU and it's knock control strategy.

Frankly there isn't alot of 'untapped free power' available without bolt on modifications and moving to a higher octane (89-91). Even with bolt ons and higher octane you don't have unlimited freedom in adding timing. You'll find knock sooner than later with pump gas. Understand the ECU and you'll find an answer to your 'why' questions

What are your mods and goals for the car? Are you willing to settle on a higher octane fuel? What is the fuel quality in your region?

well right now i have a lightwieght crank pulley cosmo short ram intake that i put a k and n x stream filter on. , wrx axle back but im putting on a sti axle back this week ,ive done up all the brakes and im working on suspention right now. stainless steel clutch line , ive changed out mad bushings and stuff but i think thats it as far as performance mods go.
im down with the higher octane. i can get 93 all over. used to be able to get 94 but sunoco doesnt sell it anymore. the 2.5i block is too thin to turbo so i just want this one to breath right .

as far as goals for the car i just dont want to get rear ended by a tractor trailer while trying to change lanes in traffic. i think ill be happy with the power i have once the ecu is tuned right.

Really, the only thing you've got that you can tune for (and you need to) is the Cosmo intake. Follow my MAF Scaling tutorial on here or just use the MAF tool in the alpha 785 build of RomRaider.

Search on RomRaider's forum, there's a thread about the MAF tool. Actually, I think there's at least 2 threads about it on here.

It's pretty much plug and play, but you should probably read what the dev has to say about it.
