Does your dyno spit out the data in some sort of spreadsheet-able format (like a text file or Excel file)? Your graphs would be much more useful if they looked something like this:

This may be old but the guy with the e-manage who was using scotch-locks to install it really needs to redo that install. It doesn't take long to solder a connection and it takes a lot longer for it to fail.

just my .02,
Joel

p.s. I saw AWD sub's RS on the dyno with the unichip and at the track without it and it was night and day.

Jay,

I found 3 n/a UniChips in our shop office. They are all brand new. (We are using the PerfectPower for the n/a cars due to more features and less cost. I will let the UniChips go cheap!! Normally $499. Now only...????? I can custom map it for you.

[quote=Rallitek.com]The old thread lives.

Here is the EM I found a SEMA. I have been testing and tuning with our RalliTEK.com PerfectPower. This is the best unit I have seen so far.

-Windows software
-data logging
-Air/fuel Ratio meter built in
-advance and retard timing(not just retard like the others)
-much more....



All the info you will want / need is in the PerfectPower area of www.rallitek.net

PM'd you Sean. The Unichip has that one feature that we need most that the PerfectPower lacks. We gotta spin this sucker up a bit higher. If we can control the fuel and timing at the same time....that's a big bonus to get rid of the other piggybacks in our car. I may call today to talk to you.....

So what does the PerfectPower do that the UniChip can't, and vice versa. From what I've gathered the UniChip will allow one to adjust the rev limiter, while the PP won't, but based on my dyno graphs I don't think my setup has anything to gain by revving any higher. Then again, maybe the ability to adjust timing in addition to fuel (which is all I can adjust at this point with my S-AFC) would allow me to get better top end? I dunno.

What sort of laptop is needed to interface with the PP? Do you have any screen shots of the user interface so we know what we're getting into? What sort of datalogging capability does it have (what parameters does it datalog, how much data can it record, does it have a "digital dash" playback, is the data available to output to a spreadsheet for customized graphing)? I'm sure there are more questions, but that's a start.

Thanks,

They will generally tell you their product is the best, but then they wouldn't sell it if they didn't believe that to be true. Just do your homework and don't gather all your info from one source. But he's not doing anything wrong.

Sean,
I may be interested in one of those Uni-Chips. Can you PM me a price?

Well i can say that Rallitek is the best reliable source for info on our N/A's. I havent seen any other vendors that are still wanting to help us N/A's get more power and showing us how to do so on the forums. So yes, I would be careful of most vendors but the guys at Rallitek arent trying to make a quick buck.

Default So many questions.

I am not aware of how UniChip can alter redline. RalliTEK is a UniChip dealer and I can tell you UniChip tells me their product can not even alter ignition timing on a non-turbo Subaru without causing check engine lights and mis-fire codes(OBDII cars). Mis-fire codes causes the factory ecu to retard timing. Just what you do not want.

UniChip has great resolution on it's maps and is a great fuel controller. Fuel is enough for most folks. I have lots of the UniChips in stock.

Our RalliTEK PerfectPower has many more features and you can access/tune it yourself if you like. (UniChip is dealer only programmable) RalliTEK Perfectpower can alter ignition timing without check engine lights. There are alot more differences.

I started out trying to make the UniChips work, since they work so well on WRX. Not going to happen on the non-turbo cars. Looking everywhere at SEMA for something hat can work on non-turbo Subaru as well as the turbo cars..... RalliTEK PerfectPower.

Thank you. I would rather solve your tuning/power issues than make a quick sale. (thus the UniChip honesty) I would love to get rid of those n/a UniChips. They work better than S-AFC, but not as many features as my new RalliTEK PerfectPower.

Sean,

Good talking to you on the phone the other day, again I appreciate you taking the time to explain the pros and cons of the two options to me.

I don't think this is true. My car throws misfire codes all the time (due to the Fidanza flywheel or Cobb cams or some combination thereof). Based on the datalogging I've done with my PocketLogger I see no change in timing whether the ECU has been freshly reset of if the CEL has been on for a week with 4 misfire codes locked in.

Pat,
I think it may matter what codes the car is throwing. I have had two separate instances with my car where I got detonation while running fuel with too low of octane. In both instances, my car pulled timing to the point that it stopped detonating. If it hadn't, why would the detonation stop?

Megasquirt can be had for under $200 from the right place, and is amazingly good for a DIY engine management system. Very tunable, or at least moreso than most piggyback systems. I've yet to see it on a Subaru (mostly Nissans and Toyotas), but I imagine that the results will be the same.

Yes, obviously the ECU will pull timing when it's required - such as detonation (the whole purpose of having a knock sensor). However, I don't think it pulls timing for a misfire code.

There's some discussion about it on the USMB on the old gen subarus

Pat

Depending on the year of the ecu. You may be correct. Knock and mis-fire are different animals. There may not be timing corrections for just mis-fire with no detonation.

-Sean S.

Which dyno charts do you want to see?(there are several posted at www.rallitek.net) I have severe limitations on posting pics in this forum. There are alot of 'file size' restrictions that I do not have at the RalliTEK.net forum. The pics will be smaller here.

Sean, as far as I know, there is not a lot available for the MAP 2.5L engines (mine is a 98 Legacy GT).
Most look to be heading for the phase II/SOHC and newer.
Is this true?
Do you feel there is power to gain for a MAP based car with mods to justify EM?

I know the MAP cars leave a lot on the table without EM, but my understanding is that there is some gain for MAF cars. I am wondering "how much"?

So you know, I have:
Light flywheel
Full COBB EL exhaust
Some engine work (more head work coming)

TIA.

Your '98 is a best candidate for an ecu. Your '98 has a Mass Air Flow sensor. The fueling is easily controlled. A car that old usually runs very rich at the top end. With mods the can get lean.
The earlier cars cone out of 'closed loop' much more easily than the newer MAP (Manifold Absolute Pressure) based SOHC engines. So, you have a wider range of tuning. Power gains will depend on how well te car is running now. I usually see 8-12whp from proper tuning on most setups.

sorry to bring old thread back alive
but does unichip for WRX works for RS?

how hard is it to install the unichip if it doesn't have the pnp harness?

and anybody know how much does it cost to get it reflashed?

WRX UniChip will only work for a 2005 RS. Older models can not use UniChip from WRX.
