Default UTEC and ECU reflash question.

Hey Phil, TurboXS, or anyone else who knows-

Just wondering. Since I am back on the stock ECU I was thinking about getting it reflashed since I am on the list of people "recalled" for it.

But I was wondering if I should disconnect the UTEC when I take it in? If I have to do that I will probably just take it to a mod-friendly dealer but if I don't have to disconnect the UTEC I suppose I will take it to my local dealer

Thanks in advance.

I do not know the Subaru ECU reflash process and therefore do not know if you need to remove the UTEC to do it. However, better safe than sorry. Remove the UTEC if you are going to get your ECU reflashed.

Default heuberger sent mine in

when i had mine reflashed, last january for misfires, they had to send it in. this was right before i got my unichip, so my ecu was bare. maybe they can reflash it at the dealership now, i don't know.

i would take it out to be safe.

I just had my ECU reflashed (got the car back yesterday). They actually have to pull the ECU out of the car and send it to NJ to have Subaru perform the reflash. I was without a car for 3 days. I think I would pull the UTEC...

Most dealers have the program to re-flash at the dealer or they should. Ours does.
