Default Vag-Com cable resource thread

I recently discovered the vag-com cable and decided to try it out. I got the cable on ebay for about $20. Got it from a US seller and recieved it in a couple days. Trying to get it to work has been a looooonnnnngg and painstaking process. It took a LOT of research between here and the lgt forums to get an idea of how to do it. Then it took a LOT of trial and error to get it to work. I'm starting this thread to try and consolidate all of the resources needed to use the vag-com in one place. I'm going to try to keep this short and to the point so here goes.

Things you will need:

Vag-com cable: I recommend ebay seller Alpha-bid

FTDI drivers for your vag-com cable available here.

Edit: vista users need to run software as an administrator and manually load drivers!

Complete list of ecuflash releases:

Here's a link to ecuflash 1.28

ecuflash 1.29

ecuflash 1.32


Ecuexplorer available here: (I had to use this)

Romraider ecu editor and logger available here

Tactrix flash connector available here (for 02/03-05 wrx 16 bit ecu's)

pbomer's write up HERE

Feel free to post what has worked for you and try to keep the OT to a minimum. If you have something useful to add, I'll be happy to put it in the first post. Hope this helps someone.
