Hi there all..
X-mas is almost around the corner and its a great time for turbo xs componetns like UTECs and Exhaust Systems.
World One Performance
If you have not been to our Turbo XS FAQ please visit @ www.worldoneperformance.com/turboxs
and let us know what you think.
We have more than a few products from this fantastic company to offer there is nothing that we would like to do more than provide you with an opportunity to sample our service and these fabulous products.
Turbo XS Exhaust systems: Currently available are Turbo xs exhaust featuring their huge four inch bell mouth downpipe. Turbo xs exhaust systems are available with both a high flow catalytic converter to stay emission friendly, or a race pipe for higher out put.
The high flow cat will not cause a CEL and is sufficient enough to get passed emissions in all 50 states. The race pipe puts out about 5-8 more HP than a HF cat on a an otherwise stock car. However the race pipe will cause a CEL due to the fact that near 02 sniffer won't like what it smells. It is very difficult to pass emissions with a catless exhaust system.
Also available is the turbo xs stealth back exhaust system. This is the system without the muffler. The TXS stealth back (downpipe catpipe/racepipe midpipe) bolts right up to the factory muffler and goes virtually unnoticed. This is a fantastic way to get all the benefits of an exhaust system without the added noise. It is also a great way to segment the exhaust purchase. The turbo xs stealth allows you to choose your own axel back, when you are ready. Since this is the portion of an exhaust system that you see and hear, it is the most personal. Options include, blitz nur spec, prodrive, scooby sport and turbo xs. You will be suprised out at how little a turbo xs stealth back with race pipe will set you back.

Also available for the first time are turbo xs short ram intakes!
The best part about this filter is that is will not cause any problems with your WRX stock MAF sensor. The MAF housing on this filter is stock size, with minimal if any MAF distortions.
This filter has been dyno tested on turbo xs stage II, III, and IV cars with zero changes made to A/F on the turbo xs base maps and HP gains are evidenced with zero complications due to very low pressure accross the exterior of the filter.
Power gains at the stage IV level were approximately 5 WHP.
The guys at turbo xs used a *BIG* K&N filter with a 15cm base that tapers to 13.5 cm at the top with the conical incert in the top. The top of the filter has a large silver ring at the top and is shown in the picture below.
Perhaps the best thing about this intake is the price. Ringing in at 159.00, this is the best intake value of the market for the WRX.
Other expected changes from installation of this intake include increased intake noise, trubo spool noise, and stock blow off valve volume.
Turbo XS UTEC ECU for WRX and STI:
There is a lot of talk going around right now about which ECU is the best way to go. If you have questions about this delicate decision or would like to know how a UTEC can work for you, please give us a call.
This device offers an unprecidented amount of engine controll for the price. Just 25 minutes after installation your ECU can be running a turbo XS staged base map, or a custom map of your own.
Take complete controll of your fueling, timing, and boost after familiarizing yourself with Turbo XS easy to follow instructions.
Use the UTEC's dashboard function to monitor your engine output signals in real time. Monitor your engines activity, keeping an close eye on knock, AFR, Boost, IDC, and much more.
All in stock and ready to go for 975.00 shipped!!!

From Turbo XS website:
How does the UTEC increase WRX engine performance?
By allowing the user to tune more aggressive ignition timing, air fuel ratios and boost curves. With 36 RPM sites from 250 RPM to 9000 RPM and 10 load sites, the UTEC gives you 360 possible map points for fuel, ignition timing, and boost.
How much extra power can I expect from the UTEC?
This really depends on the other modifications you have done to your WRX. The UTEC will let you get the most out of whatever hardware you have on your WRX. On a stock WRX, power gains of 30-40 horsepower at the wheels are easily and safely obtained. Adding a freer flowing exhaust, a larger turbo, an upgraded fuel system, etc. will allow even larger power gains. Our staged upgrades will allow you increase horsepower from between 40hp to over 120hp more than stock. We have used the UTEC on our personal WRXs to make even more power. Ultimately, how much power your WRX makes with the UTEC will depend on how well you have prepared the car’s power train and how well the car is tuned.
Is the UTEC a piggy-back computer or a stand alone engine management system?
The UTEC is a really a bit of both. It acts as a stand alone system in that it gives you complete control over ignition timing and boost. Fuel control, however, is piggy-backed off the factory ECU. The UTEC allows you to modify the MAF voltage, giving you the ability to control Air/Fuel ratios and to run larger than stock injectors. The factory ECU is also used to manage some of the more mundane functions that are necessary to keep a car drivable on a daily basis. Some examples are cold start, hot start, acceleration fuelling and closed loop fuel control. With future software upgrades available free from TurboXS, the UTEC will eventually allow complete control over fuelling allowing the user to eliminate the Mass Air Sensor.
Do I have to start from scratch and do all the tuning myself?
No. Like our Unichips, the UTEC comes pre-programmed for various sets of modifications like exhaust, turbo chargers, fuel system upgrades, etc. Although these maps may not be a perfect fit for your exact modifications, they will get you close and you will only need to fine tune the setup. If you stick to our staged upgrades, you may not have to do any tuning at all if you do not want to. . Additional maps will be available on our website and maps can be easily shared with other WRX owners via e-mail.
What are some of the ad vantages of the UTEC over other engine management systems?
The UTEC comes pre-programmed for a given set of modifications so you can simply plug it in and drive away, yet it is also user tunable allowing you to take full ad vantage of your modifications. It also allows you to create and store up to 4 different programs that can be used at the turn of a dial. There is no need to drive around with your laptop simply to change from one map to another. Maps are easily shared with others via e-mail. You can go back to stock setting with the turn of dial. Data logging is included. The list goes on and on.
Does the UTEC modify the original factory engine control unit?
No. The factory engine control unit is not altered in any way. Removing the UTEC puts all engine management control back in the hands of the unaltered factory ECU.
How do I install the UTEC and how long will it take?
The UTEC simply plugs in to the factory ECU using OEM connectors. Installation takes no longer than 20 minutes and requires no cutting of wire or soldering. Most of the time is spent simply gaining access the factory ECU that is under the carpet in the passenger foot-well.
Who can tune the UTEC?
With a little practice and patience, our belief is that anyone can. We will provide base maps and helpful tuning tips on our website. We will also be working with out current dealer base and others to provide more distributed UTEC tuning knowledge and support.
Does the UTEC need to be periodically retuned?
Not unless you modify your car. For example, if your UTEC is tuned for a stock WRX and you add a turbo-back exhaust, you will need to retune the UTEC for best performance. For convenience, you will be able to simply download our UTEC Stage 2 map from our website and upload it onto your UTEC.
What octane gas should I use with the UTEC?
We suggest you tune your car on the best gas that is readily available in your area. We’ve created our street maps using 93 Octane unleaded gasoline. If you run a lower Octane gas, you can download more conservative street maps from our website at www.turboxs.com
Can the UTEC be used on any car other than the WRX?
No. The UTEC is designed to work only on the 2001+ Subaru WRX. It will work in the US spec, Australian spec and European spec vehicles.
What else do I need to effectively tune the UTEC?
While tuning can be done solely on the road, tuning is most effective when done on an AWD dyno combined with road tuning. For the most accurate fuel tuning you will need a good wideband O2 sensor that is accurate down to at least 10:1. The UTEC logs AFR from the front O2 sensor, but it is only accurate down to about 12:1, which is too lean for normal pump gas. Narrow band AFR gauges that work off of 1V O2 sensors are useless for accurate fuel tuning. Alternatively, you can use a good EGT gauge for fuel tuning. Also, for accurately tuning the UTEC's Knock Correction system, some form of knock amplification/detection hardware is required. TurboXS is working on a WBO2 and knock detection hardware so we can provide you with all the tools you need to tune your WRX.
What is the warranty on the UTEC?
TurboXS carries a one (1) year warranty on all UTECs
