Default Ecuteck

i have been reading alot about engine managment on the forums and web sites. seems that alot of ppl are going with protune (COBB?). i called the local dyno shop to me and he said that i should go with an ecuteck. why the protune? why not ecutek? what system is better or worst than the other and why? should i be going with the protune and find another dyno?

my mods
2004 STi
3" turbo back exhaust
short ram intake
12.7 lbs flywheel
excedy clutch

i hope i dont get flamed to bad for this question...

This should be in the 'Engine Management & tuning' forum. That dyno shop either only deals with Ecutek or they don't have as much experience with Cobb.
That's about a Stage 2.5 (only because of the FMIC) you have there. From all my research Cobb is the way to go at this stage. I am hoarding parts right now to be ready for Stage 2 come spring. Do a little more research and I'm sure you'll come to the same conclusion.

There is not much difference between the two systems with the exception of the accesport with allows you to switch maps. Ecutek has the easy ECU now which allows you to do the same thing though and the data logging is probably the best you can get. Both will get you roughly the same power if tuned the same
