    Perhaps because one of the companies who makes the tuning software like the AP is called Diablo sport chips

    Yeah I'm seeing a growing trend of 06 WRX owners thinking this way and knowing very little.

    I heard this younger guy saying that his 06 WRX TR was 1 of 3 COBB Stage 2's in NY. I don't know if he meant on an 06 or what. But it sounded kind of funny considering mine is Stage 2 COBB & i know of others who are as well. And of course,.. he had a RFL BOV "cuz it makes the car go faster". That's what he actually told people that were checking out his car!

    Actually, the name of the company is Diablosport. http://www.diablosport.com/ The handheld unit they have is called the Predator. I have one. They are even easier to use than the AP, (no jumper to install!), and it has a lot of functionality. I can remove the speed limiter, adjust redline, determine when the fans come on, adjust timing, adjust the speedo, etc. It even datalogs. The competitor is just as functional and it is the SCT 2. I may be switching over to it, since the shop I plan on having install my twin screw uses it for tuning...

    The best way to explain an AP or similar to the layperson = "chip"....if it were two technicians sitting down for a cup of coffee with lots of time to talk, it would not just be semantics, but in the situation described, it was just that.

    Well SCT is Super Chips Tuning, maybe the numbnut got screwed up there. I had SCT XCal II on my Cobra and it was awesome and will be putting it on my L once it has gotten a few mods. You should definately make the switch if you are thinking about it.

    I am more than likely making the switch, but I am waiting till I get the work done, as I want to sell the Pred with the C+L CAI as a package since that's how I bought it, (and after I go back to stock, the pred will have the C+L tune in it). I'm getting rid of the C+L and going with the C+L Racer intake because it fits with the Saleen better, (or if I go with the KB, which already has it's own CAI).

    Not to mention possibly getting a one-piece driveshaft, (05+ has a 2 piece and it is heavy as fk), and maybe a spec 2 clutch, possibly new flywheel, shorty headers, (I want to keep the cats, and I have heard horror stories about aftermarket high flows letting loose), new engine mounts, upgraded brakes, GT500 fuel pump kit, (not out yet, pumps are hard to find), and a partridge in a pear tree. The only thing left after all of that is.... a new engine!

    DUDE! That is going to be sick! Don't forget traction bars, that body is going to have to be stiffened pretty well too.

    How expensive is the Saleen S/C? I would go with the KB personally, I think I am going to be getting a KB 2.6L when I see the results of others using it (it is brand new. just released yesterday).

    Actually, I have BMR adjustable LCAs, relocation brackets, adjustable panhard bar, and panhard support brace, steeda bumpsteer kit, caster camber plates, and FRPP handling pack, (front and rear sways, springs, shocks/struts, strut tower brace) along with 18" deep dish black bullets (2x9" and 2x10") with Pilot Sport PS2 rubber all waiting on me when I get home in another month.

    I think the Saleen and KB both run about the same. I am now leaning toward the Saleen because I have heard only good things about the tuner/shop I am planning on using. But I have not counted out the KB, which I like just as much.

    This isn't going to take place soon, I think this will be a gradual process... after the suspension stuff goes on, (and I put that AVIC-Z1 I want so bad in). I will probably hit the brakes, then do the SC.

    Good. I am glad to hear you took care of the body flex problems early on.

    Sounds like your mod path is going pretty well. Keep us (well at least me) posted.
