    If the shifter does not go into gear do not force it in.Like for example you will find it hard to downshift to first when the car is moving.And you will most certainly find that the car does not like shifting into reverse.In both cases do not force it in.

    Change your oil religiously.And check all fluid levels regularly just like maintaining any car.Clean the TMIC of debris once in a while.

    Also never ever have the car towed or be towed.Flat bed only.
    Yea i noticed when shifting gears on my friends WRX. it seems to grind a little...

    but when i drove my friends CRZ everything easily popped into place. Is the shift grinding normal? does it cause long term damage to the clutch or anything?

    I'm hesitant to say this, because it is a sample of one and people will read it wrong, but I have been reviewing a cobb stg. I tune on an '11, in Denver so some elevation. On that car the ECU is making a learned 5 degree correction at high RPM from knocking (that is too much). The one stock map log I saw was making only a dynamic 2 degree correction in the mid range (not great but not near as bad). Both maps tested 30 miles after a reset with teh stock air filter, same day, same gas.

    The thing is in the meat of the power band the stock map is making 10% more load (i.e. it pulls harder) and the boost is higher (15psi) with no error. Boost is actually off a couple of psi on the Cobb map, in the 13's.

    There could be a bunch of other factors to explain the power, elevation, temp, bad gas, etc., but it was the same tank. Regardless, it is pretty safe to say that an OTS map does not suit this one particular car safely. You can get an openport cable and a TP tune for <$300 instead.
    I've had mixed results with the Cobb base maps. Some cars take them like a champ, some knock pretty bad.

    Both are reflash mediums, so they are similar.

    One is a handheld device, the other is an interface you connect to a computer.

    Cobb offers support for their maps, Tactrix doesn't (unless you purchase a map from a third party). Romraider forums have a lot of members willing to help diagnose/tune the car.

    If you already have a laptop, for the 3G cars, it's cheaper to go the OpenECU route with a Torqued Performance map than to buy a Cobb AP. I've liked the TP maps I've seen so far.

    I went the OpenECU route (I already had a laptop), others choose Cobb. It's up to you, neither is a bad choice. I may end up switching over to Cobb, since they offer speed density tuning for the 32-bit ECUs.

    pretty sure the shifter just lowers the length of the stick and/or shortens the throw

    LOL ignore i was reading page 1.... FAIL
