Have a Nice Day? TEC-II / TEC-II Connection Port

Even though i've seen shiv's tec-ii in action, i've never actually seen the tec-ii unit itself. After Imprezer coming over right now and showing me, I can tell you right now it looking VERY *VERY* **VERY** awesome.
A Total solution to all 99 imprezas with the MAS problems.

One question though. The laptop that will connect to the TEC-II. What kind of port does it connect to. Will the owner of the subie / tec-ii need to have a laptop at all times, or can I for example go over imprezer's house and tune it one time and leave it alone.

what kind of gains (hp/torque) is estimated?
Sorry for slapping a armada of question on you shiv, but im really excited about the TEC-II and soon as the kit becomes readily available and I raise up enough money, I will be one of your customer for sure

Please hurry Sev is considering a honda(Turbo prelude like before LOL )?
I almost forgot to ask. Shiv to run the TEC-II do you have to use a MAP sensor or can the non-hot film MAF owners use the stock sensor if it will cover their range of need?

Rich--- cOz is right. The TEC-II does not use the MAF. You can leave it it, but it won't do anything. As with the MY00, the TEC-II calculates air flow by rpm, MAP and intake temp.

Sev-- A laptop is only needed for the tuning process. Once tuned, you won't need it anymore. It uses a standar serial port. RS232, I believe. No clue as to what kind of power gains there will be. We'll see....

mmmmm... rs-232...

Sev, ya wanna know I how passed my datacomm and networking final? I imagined strangling the professor with an extra long db50 to centronics cable (bigger plugs make for better handholds..).. Worked really well, I was pretty relaxed the whole time.. Don't even ask me about statistics and tack hammers..

Question

Actually, I have a somewhat related question. What does TEC-II do to the OBD2 system?

If the stock ECU is unplugged, it seems that'd defeat OBD2. Which is relevant for two reasons:<OL>[*]You wouldn't be able to use OBD2 engine monitor software. [*]If the environazis in your state check for OBD2 compliance during inspection, it could be a hassle.[/list=a]
Of course, Shiv has made it possible to swap back to the regular ECU. I'm just curious.

Although I haven't confirmed it yet, all emission control systems should still be functional. Carbon canister purge, egr, etc,. I don't see why won't be able to plug in the OBD2 monitor and still some receive info. How much info? I don't know. Anyone in the Bay Area have an OBD2 monitor I could borrow for a couple of days?

Exclamation

Since the TECII is using MAP sensors anyway, does that mean it will work with my 00RS? If it does, I am thinking that I might be one in the forseeable future. I may not turbo it but I will want to make sure the engine is making all it's worth. BTW is there a series of posts (or site) where the TECII functions and capabilities are described in detail?

Thanks

Bob O,

There is a post somewhere with a link to the Tec-II website and you can download the intruction manual. It has a ton of information in it.

Here you go:

Hope this helps

Thanks AaronB, looks like I have some reading to do. I didn't realize that the TEC-II was made by Electromotive, I thought the TEC name sounded familiar.

Cost anyone? For the unit alone and a guess on install?

Thanks

Bob O
Yet another part I can't afford but want. My list is getting too long. I may have to have children so that I can sell them to buy Subie parts.
