Default "Defining" a Subaru

I went to a local performance shop and he was telling me in order to check some things on my 02 Bugeye (2.5RS) i need to see if i can define it and then they can "Flash" it to find some stuff out. This convo started because its been knocking a little like the motor mounts are loose and its been acting like she is tired and ready for an overhaul. Does anyone know what he means by define it? I know it has to be something with the ECU i am guessing but need some help from you veterans.

That's something you should have asked him to explain

Macs out in Parker. I got a Vibrant Performance Cat installed in georgia earlier this year to pass emissions and the core is loose and i had to take it to a certified vendor to send it back. He was one of the closer ones and he brought up defining it to reflash it, which i looked up online and havent seen anything about being able to flash an 02 RS though.

My guess is that it's a little used industry (or possibly just by this guy) term meant to mean "baseline". As in, he needs to get the baseline maps from your car before he can flash it.

Just a WAG though.
