Default 2004 or 2005 ROM Basemap on 2006 STI

Recently got fed up with accessport and decided to start tuning with OS. I'm pretty familiar with tuning, but the whole OS thing I've never done before. I have found some decent basemaps over on RR and was curious on compatibility. The one specifically is basically my exact setup, but it has a different CAL ID from a 2004 STI vs my 2006 STI. Is it compatible as is? Or would I need to start with a stock 06 ROM and transfer over the maps? Thanks!

Start with an 06 ROM and copy the tables u want to use. You gave up some useful features by switching away from Cobb btw

Other than real time tuning, what did you have in mind?

And yes, just start with a factory ROM for your car and copy the tables over. Trying to flash an 04 or 05 ROM on your ECU will brick it in no time, assuming it even allows you to flash it on in the first place.

Some ECUs can actually do this. But I am pretty sure its just the 16 bits on the 02-05 WRXs. I wouldnt try it though on anything else. But in some cases you can use same year roms with different cal IDs.

Source: flashed a 2011 Sedan STi rom to a 2011 5 door Sti and it worked just fine. Same thing can be said about most same year roms, but the only ecus you can use different years (its not all cases either) is the 02-05 16 bit ecus. Which doesnt apply to your 06. Like others said, you just need to copy data to your correct rom.

Ok got the answer I needed. Copying tables over is what I was thinking to do anyways just wanted to be positive. Thanks for all the help. Cobb didn't offer me anything that I will miss

Real time tuning/map tracing by itself is priceless but u also give up launch control and speed density and more defined tables . although u can always define them yourself if you know how. The only downside I can see with the Cobb is the slow sample rate when logging.

You might want to brush up on what open source offers...since you couldn't be more wrong. My '05 is running speed density with launch control and flat foot shifting, all on open source.

What you said is true for the 08+ models, but the OP has an '06...completely different ball game.

Real time tuning is nice and so is map tracing, but it isnt necessary by any means. Also, like eggroll stated, SD/FFS/LC are all available in the OS world. Even on the GRs if you know the right people.

Hell you can even run rotational idle, spark cut, and antilag on some of the 16bits.

I do need to brush up. Wasn't aware they had that for the 32 bit os already. Is it a patch or a full ROM? Either way its easier to do on ap for beginners.

They both have their pros and cons. Not looking to get into an e-argument just pointing out some of the pros to the op.

I have used and currently use both os and ap and both are viable.

Holy unintentional threadjack of the year.....Where the hell can I get a speed density for my 04 sti...for free that is? I love using opensource and would like to stick with not paying anything for tuning software All I can find for free is speed density for 16 bits

Indeed:

Edit: it looks like a lot of the threads there have since disappeared...I wonder where they went?

Cant blame the guys for wanting a donation. They spend quite a bit of their time developing these things. $15 is not much as ask for.
