Angry AP V1/ECU Help

Got my AP V1 today and tried to flash my ECU, which IS unmarried(bought from subydaddy). During the initialization process, it stopped and said "THIS ECU IS ALREADY BEING USED BY ANOTHER ACCESSPORT!!! CANCELING PROCEDURE", or something real close to that. I bought the car used and obviously the previous owner didn't unmarry his AccessPort. I'd sure like to meet that guy right now. I talked to RaiN, who brought the AccessPort up with him, and he mentioned that someone may have a spare ECU around. I called Cobb and they told me to talk to my local Subaru dealer to see if they would flash it back to stock for me. BTW, I haven't had a whole lot of luck with the Service Department at Auto Service, and they told me they could not. Seemed to me that they just really didn't want to deal with it. Can anyone help me with this?

I appreciate that, although I'm going to weigh all of my options before actually making that decision. The AP is fantastic shape, too, thank you!!!

i think he just wants the ability to take it to stock when he wants. thats why i bought my wrx new and my ap new. went from stage 0 to stage 2 to stage vf39 and about to go back to stage 2

but yeah stage 1 is the best thing you can do to your car without doing anything else to it, but once you do one thing, the next thing you know your saving money for a fully built motor and putting a 12345678 trim turbo on it

good luck with getting it back to stock though. if you cant make it to anchorage contact JP aka wrxak.

okay, we can talk more about that

u can gimme a ring. 979 733 7240

if you are already stage 1.. why not go to stage 2 (if you have a TBE) seeing as you are most likely already used to stage 1.

I'll call you when I'm down there and we can take a look at it. And no, I don't have the TBE, yet. That was more of a winter project for me. I actually have no ambition to take it back to stock, either. If I have my way, I'll hang on to this car until the wheels fall off!!! Ponamy, why are you going back to stage 2? I'm not familiar with your situation.

possibility of trade in soon, be easier to take it to the dealer with stock injectors and turbo at stage 0 than with a vf39. its not likely but its a possibility. plus when i take it to IM flashing to stock for the IM wil be easier from a stage 2. ill keep all the stuff from my vf39 swap so going back and forth will be no price cost. i want options at hand and i have a couple right now this way.

so anchorage is a go and i guarentee t4nk will deliver. hes a good guy. dont worry bout that.

T4nk, I'll be calling you at sometime tomorrow. I'm supposed to meet up with brian_i and ImaBrat to do a trunk swap, at Brian's house. My number is 378-2773, just in case, for some reason, I can't get a hold of you.

What time would be available to get together? I'll be at brian_i's place at around noon to perform a three-way trunk swap. You could swing by there if that would be easier on you...
Actually, when we DO end up hooking up, do you think you could poke around under the hood, maybe? I've never seen under the hood of a stock WRX, so I have no idea if my car is completely stock or if anything has been left on it. I've only had the car a few months, too...
