Yeah, I am running a SAFCII and a J&S ultra. works well for low boost but I really want something to make thecar run smooth at any rpm and boost ( no higher tat 10 psi).

I always wonder why the unichip never made it to the rs crowd?

because i tried the unichip and never like it at all. it was a piggy back and i think the ECU learned around it or something...

After that i decided it was a standalone or a reflash. Because most of the reflashed took so long to develop and there were so many diffculties (bugs that we were never told about or whatever) it just seemed to be that support would wither away.

The reason i bought this standalone is because i noticed they were really focused on providng support for multiple platforms and options. now I cna get a software update buy a new harness and plug it into any performance car. If someday i sell or want to slap on a ecu to a second car i can. Looking at the software it seemed it was build well and they would be contantly updating the ecu.

After i called hydra and found that they were the old minnam guys i knew it would be a good solution.

I think that once the unichip was used more and more its tuning capacity increase.
That will justifiy why people like shiv and Cobb used it in their first power packages. I could be wrong but I would like to hear Shiv or Trey point of view.

don't get me wrong I believe that units like the LINK( when it didn't cost 1700) and the Hydra are really good ECU and an excellent way to tune your car.

Sounds great, but when you mentioned new flash for the Hydra, I'm taking they shipped your Hydra with this new firmware (flash) and won't force you to buy a new upgrade already?

yes the hydra was shipped with the new firmware...

about the unichip... i think the move from the unichip from most tuners clearly states that it was not a good option for us or WRXes...

But i have heard that it maybe because they were hard to deal with (suppliers IE Dastek). But this is from gossip and when i used it briefly i didn't like it at all.

The AEM software is a lot harder to understand. I don't like the interface of the AEM software, but that is just me though. I'm sure others like it. You can download the AEM software from thier site to compare.

Few do, there are only a handfull of people who can tune on the AEM system right.

Actually my friend Scot who owns redline motorsports in Fort Collins, is a certified AEM tuner. He is awesome.. He is super knowledgeable, and tunes High end cars Like Supras, and Corvettes and stuff like that.. anyway here is a link to his website.
www.4redlinemotorsports.com
I would have him work on my car, but I have AWD and he has a 2wd dynojet dyno. anyway check it out...

Got to drive the Hydra powered RS-t last night again.

My buddy was tuning using a very slllooowww laptop and it was tough. So, note to users: if you are tuning yourself, get a fast laptop. New software updates are coming out soon, I believe with a few new cool features.

We will be a Hydra authorized tuning center as well and will be stocking many units for WRX and STI. We are actually using it on our Spec R kits to eliminate the MAF sensor. It is a fantastic unit.
