Should i get this reflash and is it safe to get it on my car?
mods are fmic, downpipe, uppipe, exhaust, headers as far as engine goes. and the car is kinda feeling sluggish. the problem is that i dont have enough money as of right now to get a dyno tune. all i can get is the reflash and i was wondereing if that would make a difference and is it safe to do.

cause the car is untuned and people are telling me i should get it tuned after those kind of mods.

car is 2004 wrx impreza.

Yes you should get it tuned. It's safe depending on who you trust. Best bet is to search for ''ecutek'' in a local forum for somebody near you. Pick up the phone and talk to some ecutek dealers. I think you can find a list on www.ecutek.com

Good luck.

check out ultimate-racing.com for the ecutek or ecutek.com. the sluggishness could be caused by the headers especially if the diameter is signifacantly larger than stock.

they did my reflash for me. The down time is not bad even though I had to mail mine but I had a sti ecu to use during that time. None the less, they were able to map for all of my mods (similar to you but turbo swap, Perrin tmic). I ended up having to port my vf39 Wastegate housing. Other than that I dyno'd yesterday to the tune of 295/299. My A/F was flat at about 12 for all three dyno pulls! I ran a scanmaster 3 during my runs (in 3rd gear) and my idc's never went above 84%. Not bad for a mail in reflash! Clark and Steve did a great job!
