I also am curious to see how the new style routing effects performance, but as far as ELH, dual AVCS, and low-mount turbos, the experience and knowledge of HOW to go about extracting the power is defintely there. The low-mount turbo setup may be new to an OEM Subaru, but guys have been doing low-mount setups for a long time now.

The afr from the accessport is not accurate during open loop fueling. A wideband will be needed to get accurate readings of the afr.

You are incorrect here sir . There is definitely opensource support for 5th gen's, and there are definitely some guys over on romraider that have already been tuning them for a little while now. Generally, as far as subarus go, if there is accessport support, opensource is either already there or quickly follows it. Also, if you have the ability to use the accessport, then you have the ability to be tuned by anyone with the race tuner licensing for multiple vehicles.
