Tom,

Did you contact Shiv? since he's the seller of the stage 0..... probably the best to tell you....

Lachute has done swaps and are a COBB Tuning center.... They sell and install the Stage 1 and 2 WRX kits....

Stage 2 should be reviewed in the Cdn Car Magazine (shortly)...

Yep, I'm selling my Tec-II with the fuel rails and injectors, everything plus a few extra pickups installed and tuned to the point you can drive it. (Installation takes an entire weekend and tuning is a very long and time consuming task, trust me on this one).

I'm aiming for $4k. I paid about $5k but to get more money (since the Tec-II price has dropped) I wanted to do the install and basic setup for whoever buys it. I'm not in a rush to sell it though. Drive up to Ottawa, I'll do it

Mike....why didnt you leave the TEC-II on with the STi motor? Wouldnt that help tuning it, and get a few more horses out of it? Or is it simply too much of a pain?? I guess if you already have the Subaru ECU, its easier....

Here's some info........

http://www.electromotive-inc.com/tec2.htm



Tech II is a complete engine management system that is second to none. The TEC combines Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) with our Direct Ignition System (DIS) for Total Engine Control. TEC offers the user the most comprehensive fuel and ignition available. The calibration software provides interactive control while assuring the user a superior running engine in hours instead of weeks as some other systems require. The entire system is complete and PC computer programmable for the ultimate in user friendliness and adjustability. The TEC products are easily configurable for throttle body or multi-port fuel injection at horsepower levels for street or race.

I wanted to drive the car, not spend a month tuning it. The injectors don't fit the STi motor nor do the fuel rails. Also it's hard to tune an engine if you don't know how it "should" feel. Given the cost of the engine, the last thing I wanted to do is blow it up.
