Default Looking for some Feedback COBB vs ECUtek

My 2004 WRX has the following mods:

Injen Cold Air Intake
Injen Downpipe
Injen Catback.

I'm in the market now for a ECU flash. COBB tuning is offering a Stage 2 ECU flash via hand held device for $550.00 whereas an ECUtek flash which includes Dyno time is a rough estimate at $900.00

I spoke to COBB already and they said they have specific maps for my configuration down to the brand name of the parts.

Question is: How many of you have a COBB stage 2 and how happy are you with the setup?

Check out the Utec. $1000 + $80 map switch gives you 5 custom maps. One map could be stock, and you have four others to blow your motor with. Merely plugging it in is claimed to yield 30hp. Other features include an anti-lag map and a launch control map. It will be my next mod after I return from yet another 3rd-world toilet.

Lose the intake most tuners wont tune for it... and utek is great if you want to play with the tuning youself and have a delta dash. Otherwise a reflash is the way to go.
The different between the two is nill... I like cobb becuase they cracked it in house unlike the ecutek uses. And its cheeper...




Thies threads should get you started...

I'm surprised Cobb said they have a map for an Injen intake. If you look on their site they only support the stock airbox and the older APS intakes included with the Club-Spec kits.

As always, the best suggestion is to go with the tuner that is close to you. If there is somebody with a dyno then it will get you the most performance. If you are just looking for a blackbox upgrade and don't need an optimal tune, then any of the staged packages will work.

With all that said, I would still have to side with Cobb, though. He is local to me ( ) but they also have some really bitchin stuff coming out soon.
