Very reputable shop. I'm pulled off road now... any ideas

Hi.

**** you for texting/posting while driving.

That is all.

chaz517 11-02-2012 03:03 PM

Awesome, thanks For that. When I'm already upset, that's just what I needed.

SurlyOldManMN 11-02-2012 03:09 PM

Smashing into a family sedan complete with family because you were upset and texting while driving would have been just what you needed. I hope you will accept my humble offering as an admittedly inferior, but well-intentioned substitute.

chaz517 11-02-2012 03:14 PM

So do you have any answer to my question? Thank you

SurlyOldManMN 11-02-2012 03:18 PM

Kneejerk assumption is it was tuned with an Accessport/EcuTek or other approach that locks the ECU. I would be worried about a tuner who could not tell me if this was the case, reputable or not.

You have more problems if you bought the car at stage 2 and it WASN'T tuned. Is that the case?

Ecu flash doesn't have a definition for my car. They are trying to figure it out. They have been tuning subies for years. Any ideas?

Easy tiger. Ask them what kind of cable they are using to brick...I mean...tune your car.

He knows it wasn't locked from a previous tune, and when I had my car at Subaru they flashed it to stock, so no stage 2 on stock car, thank u for the input tho, I appreciate it.

Wait... How do you know the stealership flashed it? When did that happen? Why?

Why don't you back up and go over the details you know so far. laff was going down the right path IMO. Start eliminating culprits beginning with the cable... BUT there is more wtf going on here than you have thus far divulged. Something doesn't sound right with this whole setup.

If they have been tuning for years but don't know how to figure out what to do with a rom without a definition, you should go somewhere else.

Do you have a Tactrix cable?

dudeondacouch 11-02-2012 06:30 PM

prolly AP stg1 and not unmarried properly.

tell them to put it on the dyno the way it is and run it. if you see more than 200tq (without some asinine correction factor), you've got your answer.
