For those with no hills, or left foot brake experience, just pull the ebrake up a little bit to get a very consistant resistance. Works well for me.

do you have to remap the ecu everytime you upgrade factory parts such as the intake or exhaust?

Any particular reason why this won't work just sitting in your driveway revving the engine?

In other words, does the ECU and the engine "know" that the wheels are turning?




Obviously, I assume this won't work, but I'd still like to know.

It's more than just RPMs, engine load figures in as well. I guess if you REALLY hated your clutch you could sit in your driveway with the e-brake on and the clutch barely engaged, but keep a fire extinguisher handy! Along with a grand for a new clutch and flywheel. LOL

What if you don't get it done the first time? Can you did over and over again until you get it right? Or do I have to reset each time I screw up?

Ok, so.. definitively: Does this trick work on STIs or not?

People have mentioned that IAM cannot be logged with Delta Dash on an STi, is that proof?

Yes it does. But the proceedure is a bit different. First you have to reset the ECU. Then let the car idle until it is fully warmed up in closed loop fuel control. Then hold approx 4-5psi of boost at 3500rpm for 3-4 seconds. This usually results in a bump of 20whp. This 20whp is something that you would probably see eventually over the course of a few days of driving. But this takes a few seconds and is great for those who are dyno testing/tuning or are just really impatient.

cheers,
Shiv

Yes it works the same as the other WRXs. Even with the 4EAT.

That did not work for me Shiv. I recently installed a couple subs in the trunk and in doing so, I disconnected the battery. When I went out for a 'test listen' I noticed right away that I had lost all my power. Since then I have tried your ECU quicklearn trick many times. I still get beat by all the Cavaliers. The power loss is just incredible. I still reach full boost, there are no error codes, just an insane loss of power. There is no trick that isn't in your post right? I am doing exactly what your post entails, but no restoration of my power. I am quite good at left foot braking though. Is there any other way to manually set my ECU to 'power mode' instead of '***** mode'?

oh, it edited out my cat reference mode, ha!

Hey Shiv... U've done the "sub zero" upgrade for me back in 2004, in June, I think. I have a 2003 WRX. I was wondering if this was done for me already, during the reflash u've done for me.

BTW, I was the one that u guys left the "adapter" in my car and I mailed it back to u, HAHHAH!

Default ECU Fast Learning Article added to www.scoobypedia.co.uk

Shiv and all,

This is great information although I've had to read this massive thread to extract it.

(Shiv) I've added your information to a page called Fast Learning Trick on my www.scoobypedia.co.uk knowledge base. I thought this would be a great addition to this free site helping many other people to benefit from your experience.

If you would prefer I don't plagiarise your words in this way just let me know and I'll delete it, no questions asked.

(All) Please feel free to edit or update the information here (click the edit link and enter a name in the Author field) if it is out of date or you find details of other Impreza variants that have a different procedure.

Thanks again,
-Steve.

are you saying moving the DAM from it's half way position to it's full position results in a gain of 20WHP? I'd like to see that

Thats a great tip shiv...but I was also wondering will it work if my car was already reflashed by you? Well the reason why I wanted to try it is because I took out my silencer..would it be a good idea to reset the ECU or just let it be?
