Default Will this Tactrix Cable work for my 2006 WRX?

I found a Tactrix cable for super cheap around me and I'm just wondering if it will work for both logging and flashing the ecu on my 2006 WRX Wagon. I've attached an image of the OBDII side of the cable. It looks to be a Tactrix 1.3 model.

Before you start telling me, "Bro, do some research!", I've already done plenty of research and have heard many contrasting ideas on these cables. I'm just looking for an answer from someone who has experience with this cable and a 2006 WRX Wagon.

As always, thanks for all replies!

So, my 2006 for sure is CAN-BUS? Because the guy I'm buying it from says he is able to flash is 2007 WRX with it.

If you have the cable and ecuflash on a laptop try to read and copy the rom with it or ask the guy that you are buying from to do it.

Found this guy on another forum that says 1.3 will work on your car:

Canbus started in 08, like I said in the first post. The last year the 1.3 should work on is 07.

Welp, ordered the cable anyway. $40 for a Tactrix cable is definitely worth the hit or miss being as I could sell it for much more.

Cable will be here in two days. Just in case anyone else is wonder now or in the future, I'll make a post telling whether it worked or not.

I confirm that this cable DOES work for a 2006 USDM WRX.
