I'm getting a map for a stock WRX which is their stage 1 map. My ECU is on it's way back to me now. It should be here tomorrow afternoon and will be installed and tested tomorrow after work.

How does it compare to the Vishnu reflash? Price? Hp? I was going to go with the Vishnu reflash but this has me thinking now.

OMG, Gayer-than-Gay Spidey is the funniest damn thing I've ever seen! I couldn't stop laughing for like 10 minutes... Nice score on the AccessECU. I'll be doing it sometime this summer, probably.

how long will it take for flashed ECU to "learn" my car?

I got mine back, but i'm not makind full boost, something wrong w/ the boost controler connection, I think i messed it up when i took off my MBC, i forgot how the "T" went back together...But i dont think that will prevent me from reaching full boost, i would think it's either over boost or no boost at all if I mixed up the "T".... I did loose a hose clamp, i had to rig it up, so that might be it, after all it was like 3am when i finally put my new catback on (I just wrote a post reviewing my Invidia RS*R catback), and plugged in my ECU.


It is 6am now, i'm gonna pass out and double check my connection when i wake up....

You should try the Vishnu reset and see if it works, i noticed a difference on my stock ECU when I had to reset it. Vishnu Reset -James

I think the Cobb reflash is $395 plus you pickup shipping.

So if this is even good on bone stock like mine, I might not be able to resist :D

Even their stage 1 at sub $1000 is interesting. Does anyone have any opinion if the catback that comes with their stage 1 kit is a good investment?

I was thinking about rims & tires but I might just get the Cobb stage 1 & only get better tires (on stock rims) :)

According to Cobb, the #'s on the web site for "Stage 1" are actually for a stock WRX. The catback/K&N filter don't add much I guess. My car is pretty much stock and I had them do the "Stage 1" AccessECU reflash... its awesome. Enough said. ;)
