Default Bought a car with EcuTek, how do i find out more?

Hi all,

I recently purchased a WRX swapped GC8 (00') impreza...

the owner didn't give much of anything to go on except that it had a EcuTek in it...

How do i find out more? I'm sure i'll need a cable and some softwear, but what, how, where...
I don't know which it is or what version... Basicly nothing...

A list of engine mods...

2002 WRX engine with about 18k on it
Vf22 turbo
STi injectors
Ecutek engine management
Perrin turbo inlet
Perrin intercooler with custom pipes
HKS intake
HKS blow off valve
HKS turbo timer
Walbro fuel pump
Helix up/down pipes with cat
Bosal twin tip cat back exhaust

TIA,
Aaron

What are you trying to find out? You want to look at the tune? Ecutek began "locking" the ecu with their tunes sometime in 2006. So, if the Ecutek tune was recent then only an Ecutek dealer would have access to it - there's nothing you can do on your own (except maybe logging). If it was before the lock, then you can use Ecuflash ( www.openecu.org ) and a tactrix cable ( www.tactrix.com ) to extract a copy of the rom.

It isn't model year, it is when the previous owner had his ecu flashed by Ecutek.

Yes. Unless you can contact the previous owner and find out when he got if flashed. Maybe if you know the shop he took it to, they might be able to tell you.
