Where can you get it? Is it a complete replacement ECU(with extra circuitry)? or is it the stock WRX ECU reflashed with different maps, etc...? I dont suppose its exactly stealth, is it?

MisterX: any insight into this facinating ECU? How much was it? Any info you have would rock.

Thanks,

chris

gotcha, all questions answered pretty much, save one i need to ask AVsport. DO THEY HAVE ANY LEFT? :D

seems like prodrive is the way I want to go. Im just curious as to how it "self learns" when its basically just a software upgrade to your stock ECU.

misterx...

you state in the mentioned thread above that HP is nothing...torque rules...

i am in total agreement of this statement...torque is what i am looking for...

does the prodrive ecu provide a dramatic increase in torque over other ecu's? if so, do you know exactly what the prodrive ecu does to provide these gains?

I'm guessing, with an up and downpipe, you'd be running a lot stronger. Much, much, stronger. But except for the figures quoted in the earlier referenced thread, I have no Dyno or other facts to offer. Sorry.

By all means... Allow me to ressurect this thread from the dead, and give it some life...

Prodrive Performance Package (COMING SOON)

'This is a pure plug and play system, bolt on the parts, swap ECU units and away you go..."

?!?

Any ideas on this?

Unfortuneately, prodrive has set out to dick everyone by forcing them to buy the package deal instead of selling their components a la carte, like Shiv, TurboXS, etc... Bad move, IMHO, and a real shame since I had alot of respect for Prodrive and they need to understand that dicking their customers is a bad business model.

that really does suck...maybe they think that this is the best way to get prodrive over here...

sort of like releasing the Back to the Future on DVD....they only released it as a box set first because they new that if they released all three individually nobody would be BTTF 2 or 3....
