Default Please post stage 2 UTEC dyno

I'm thinking about going from AP to UTEC.

Anyone have a stage 2 UTEC dyno plot (on a 2.0)? I'm curious to see how the base stage II map compares to the AP.

Thanks!

Why dont you just take the money you will use to buy the UTEC and get protuned?
Getting tuned with a UTEC or an AP will give you the same power. Its not like one of them has magic powers to add horsepower.

Only differences are the UTEC has launch control and flat foot shifting stuff but the older AP's dont, i believe the new ones do though.

But I am buying used...then selling my AP. I just wanted to know how badly I need a tune. The AP will be the cash for the tune, depending on how fast that sells.

I'm still on the base Cobb map and happy enough with that.

I still dont understand why you are doing that?

You wont make more power with one versus the other, so why go through the trouble of selling the AP and finding a used UTEC?

And looking at Cobbs website at their stage 2 #'s and then looking at turboxs site at their #'s is pretty pointless.

YOU WONT MAKE MORE OR LESS POWER WITH ONE VS THE OTHER

Exactly. Both the AccessPort and the UTEC are tuning devices. They both have their pros and cons, but both are capable of helping a good tuner get the most possible safe power from a car. Neither one nor the other will inherently give better results. My advice for the OP is save up some money for a Protune. Of course if you have the ability and inclination to tune it yourself then the UTEC is definately an option or you could purchase StreetTuner and tune your AP yourself as well.

1. UTEC has more features (meth injection control, flat foot shifting, launch control, user-tuning)

2. I can sell the AP for what I paid for the UTEC (Picking up a UTEC DELTA on Monday)

3. UTEC map switcher is more convenient the AP (important if I add METH)

4. TurboXS is an hour away

CN: I'm basically trading from AP to UTEC for even money.

That cool. BTW, I like the UTEC just fine. I have one in my car.

I don't have a picture of my dyno plot but I got tuned for three maps on my Stock turboed STi. And it works wonderfully... I made 324whp and 375wtrq on race gas.

THe Utec will actualy make a bit more power then the Stock ECU. A slight bit. The utec fires the coils harder and wont need as much timing advance. A keen tuner can take advantage of this. Most of the time its going to come down to the tuner.. If you live near TXS and like the utec features have Jermaine tune it... Thats my advice.

I think the utec has slightly more resolution too.

ok. i was wrong. but finding a stage 2 UTEC OTS dyno plot on the TXS site and comparing it to a AP Stage 2 OTS dyno plot from the Cobb site isnt a valid comparison. Not sure what conclusions you could draw from it.


And how much is a slight bit? 5whp ?
