Default Have you gone from Utec to Ecutek or vice versa? What do you think?

Just like the title says, people that have switched from one to another, what do you have to say about it? I am going absolutely INSANE trying to decide which EM to go with. Thanks -

I have road tuned versions of both. Utec (WRX) is versatile w/ multiple maps and more expensive. The EcuTek (FXT) is great--much smoother, but only one map.

I went from Uni-Chimp to S-AFC to UTec to ECUTek to Hydra.

I personally like both UTec and ECUTek. I just didnt like the fact that I couldnt reflash the ECUTek-which soon you can. UTec is pretty easy to adjust once you get use to it. I only ran the reflash at the time since I sold the UTec, ended up not selling the car, and ran a UR kit which happen use a ECUTek.

Both are nice but it allreally depends on what you want. Both are smooth and I never had problems with either or.

Some people actually use both and had great results.

i went from the utec to an ecutek reflash and couldnt be happier. There were too many hiccups and stutters with the utec, and it was too sensitive to climate changes. Ecutek is cheaper and is proven. the utec is a great tool that has proven itself and has broader capabilities, but I wouldn't go back. a tuner will make all the diff with either of these em's.
