    the best thing for the OP to do is to find an australian subaru forum for tuning/engine management requirements.

    the info you are giving him is for USDM cars but he doesnt have a USDM sti. we can speculate and assume all we want, but we cannot give him proper information unless one of us here has an AUS subaru or can find out what type of ECU it has (16 bit/32 bit/etc).

    The first sentence in the paragraph says 02/03 WRX and STi. There are no USDM 02/03 STi's. So, it would either have to be referring to EDM, ADM, or JDM.

    But I think I found the answer when I was browsing Romraider forums for a bit this morning.
    http://www.romraider.com/Documentation/SupportedECUs
    --Scroll down to ADM/SADM section
    --look under Impreza STi 01/02
    --ID marked with an asterisk(*) indicates the 32-bit ECU

    The ADM STi didnt get the 32 bit until 06. Which goes along with what Big Ron said in his thread.

    And I agree with wrxtreme, find an Australian forum. That's the best thing you can do.

    So I booked in a tune for Tuesday (reflash) - 800$ - for my TBE (no other mods), this is good considering 2 other places offered 1200$, 1400$. I am (HOPING) to get 20-30 more HP - is this an expected sort of range?
    I am assuming this will be a dyno tune as Mich my mechanic said his sending it to the only place with a 4WD dyno - so hopefully this will be the best (safest) method.

    and yes I wouldn't mind joining an Australian based forum...but theres sooo much rich suby knowledge here
    when love of power... overcomes the power of STi, the world will see peace

    HP gain is kind of an ambiguous way to measure gains (as it can very greatly from dyno to dyno). Get a baseline dyno reading before they tune, and then get the dyno readout after the tune. To answer your question though, 20-30 more HP with a full TBE and a pro-tune is the least I would expect.

    Sweet,

    also been reading through Unabomber's manifesto (very useful for noobs or anyone that's wants to learn!) - on a section regarding engine management', he stated "the ECU is programmed to compensate to return the values to normal levels"

    this will only be the case if I leave my car untuned, right? in other words - if I tune my car...even though I have been driving her pre-tune and it feels like the ECU is already returning to normal levels - after tune I will still see some gains?
    when love of power... overcomes the power of STi, the world will see peace

    02 STI's are 16 bit ECU's. But regardless I would tune it considering it has AVCS. Lot's of low end power left on the table not tuning that.

    Yup. The Carberry/Group-N ROM is based on the 02 JDM STI 16 bit ROM. But regardless of JDM,ADM,EDM WRX/STI they are all 16 bit for the 01-02 MY in the "other" markets. Those bishes get all the good stuff........

    Huh. So then I take it the SD fueling that Carberry implemented was initially designed for the JDM ECus.

    The Carberry ROM is a hybrid built from the JDM Group-N rally car ROMs. They had the speed density and antilag already. Jason added a butt-load of other features and pretty much converted it for more general "street car" usage. It does use the JDM ECU architecture but I believe he implemented OBDII fixes for AVCS.
