Default How to tune a ver.4

Hi,

I have done a couple of mods without a tune, so the next thing I'm doing is getting the ecu tune but...




So because of that I've looked for stand alone made for this specific era of sti and only the old line of apexi fc have one for these wich is plug in. Apart from that it would be a complete rewiring for a ecutec or hydra or link. If any of you have any experience with those, would you recomend it?

Also my relevent info about the car is that it's a 2001 impreza wagon with ver.4 swap on stock ver.4 sti ecu.

The mods wich affect the ecu are :
-Intake pod
-ebs aem
-turbo inlet tomei
-custom downpipe
-New sti ver 8-10 2.0l shortblock with cosworth pistons

The reason I would want the tune is for a little more performance, reliability and I'm looking for a tad bigger turbo than the stock so with maybe new injector since the side feeds yellow sti aren't much and if I got extra cash, an aftermarket tmic

Get an ESL board instead of a standalone. Much easier to tune and the ECU still retains all the stock features. What do you mean by a slightly bigger turbo? The 480cc injectors that come with the engine just might be able to handle it.

Thanks a lot for that info. I never heard of that before, but so far it seems like the best option out there. Also for the turbo uprgrade, I got the vf23 which when is set at it's max it goes to 20 psi, if I would change it, it would be for something like the vf22 which goes to about 26 psi.

With a VF22 used to its full potential you will certainly need bigger injectors
