If you're going to be getting this done once a year, I'd just buy one and keep it on hand. Seems like a lot less of a hassle than tracking one down everytime.

from the Turbo XS instructions:
Quote:
Installation of the Delta
Important note! Do not install the delta directly to your factor engine
harness. You must use the supplied extension harness to connect the delta
and your factory ECU to the factory harness. Failure to do so may result in
damage to your Delta unit that will not be covered by TurboXS under
warrantee.
1. Connect the factory wiring harness connectors to the Delta extension loom.
2. Connect the five connectors from the short side of the Delta extension
harness to the factory ECU.

^^^ He's right, I have a UTEC in my car running speed density and you still need the ECU. UTEC controls the car in boost and the ECU for idle and cruzing.

lol way to point out my newbness... I read the manual like a year ago when I purchased it, must have missed that detail or forgot about it. These terms are starting to make sense to me more and more.
I always wondered why they called it a piggyback... doesn't take a rocket scientist lol but I guess it takes more then a newb. I tend to go for the whole picture and overlook that 2 + 2 = 4

Goin back to the whole picture... http://www.turboxs.com/utecwrxupdate.htm has anyone ran the stage 3 map off here?
I have a cai, turbo inlet, up-pipe, tbe, and tmic and was wondering if I would be ok to run that til i save up $350 to get a tune and dyno.
I finally got all my supporting mods so gonna put on the utec or should I wait?

Your mods are fairly simple stage 2 stuff. I say ditch the old school utec and go with an opensource tune. I would use that money you get from the utec and spend it at FAT to get tuned by Mark Housholder.


When I ran the maps turboxs gave out. They all ran like crap. I was pretty much forced to get a custom tune back then.

Mark knows how to tune the utecs for sure. My old wrx ran so much smoother on opensource.
