    Tactrix 2.0 Reflash Adapter?

    I Have an 02 WRX and I've been looking all over for a "reflash adapter" to buy so I can buy it when I buy the Tactrix 2.0 cable but I can only find adapter kits with a bunch of different adapters with the cable for like $200...

    If I'm going to pay $200+ for the kit I minus well just wait and get a cobb ap next month..

    I still don't agree with that...$200 < $600....

    You select the reflash adapter from a drop-down on the right hand part of the screen. You could probably also contact them and buy the adapter separately, if you're sourcing the cable elsewhere.

    Dude, it's $8 for the reflash adaptor. That only brings the total to $177. If you think you "might as well buy an AP" for $600, I don't follow your logic. That's 340% more expensive!

    You didn't read my topic then or I didn't go into deep enough detail. I stated I had looked for a reflash adaptor but couldn't find one, mainly because I totally missed it on the site but on ebay and other sites they were only selling the adapter in a adapter pack with the cable for like $270.. That's almost half of what I can get an AP for. A shop here gives sells it to military for $480.

    Make it yourself. It's just looped wires. Don't recall what it is for the 2002, but the 2003 loops two wires.

    No idea. What I know is that the reflash connector I have loops the leads vertically when compared to the top of the clip.

    ^this.. it's a bridge connector, that's it. If you wanted to go cheap you could stick a paper clip in there.
