Default Stock ECU Flash

How often should you get your ECU flashed? After every mod you install or after a few? I have added some but have never flashed my ecu. Should I go ahead and find some place in the area to do it.

it all depends on the set up, and what mad your adding.... you can usually get away with an exhaust and intake, but go fmic, big turbo, exhaust cut out, and s*** hits the fan. You should find an experienced tuner in your area and talk to them about it...

ps- you may want to post your mod list

theres nothing really there that the stock ecu shouldn't be able to tune for..... i think you would be ok just cause the stock ecu is pig rich to start with.... if you get any blicking CEL's while under boost then you should probably get to a tuner but otherwise I'm sure its drivable. do you plan on modding anymore?

Default possible mods

I am not sure at this point. I have a company car that I drive daily and over the last year put just over 5K miles on my WRX. Not sure it is worth investing anymore since it is rarely driven. If you have some suggestions I would be interested to hear them.

I guess I was looking at some web sites and I was thinking of buying new headers, injectors, fuel pump, brakes, and maybe a turbo. What is the most power you can get out of the stock turbo?

the highest whp with w.i. is like 260 from what i've seen, the turbo is really undersized. to get anything more your going to need to do a turbo upgrade.... what whp are you looking for?

This depends solely on the modifications you have done. Some modifications you can get away with where as other modifications you can not without getting your ECU reprogrammed.

We also maps for just about any setup you can imagine, please take a look at our Dyno Graph Simulator to see what setup you might have and what the expected out would be for that programmed ECU.

If you are looking for something else, just do a search and see what might work best for you. If you have any questions just shoot us an e-mail.
