No....unless you want to pay $695 for launch control and flat foot shifting. Please tell me this car is protuned.

You're going to need to get it tuned anyway, so an AP would kind of be pointless. Like lokey said, you could use it for LC and FFS, but I see you already have a UTEC. You can get your factory ECU reflashed with a professional tune and hack the UTEC in for LC and FFS functionality. And I may be wrong, but I believe the LC you can get with the UTEC is more aggressive than that with the AP.


Probably the most important thing, none of the Cobb maps will work with your car.

ok Thanks guys, i have to take my car to a subaru dealer because there is a recall on some part im not exactly sure what the part is also one day like 2 weeks ago my car randomly wouldn't start it would turn over but it was like as if my car wasnt getting fuel because it wouldn't stay running so i had it towed to a shop and they couldnt find anything wrong with my car they cleaned both ends of the computer they said and checked over everything they could they said the next step is to take it to a subaru dealer and have them check it out but after that shop looked at my car it started starting up properly again and i haven't had an issue with it again yet...

also im new with car parts i been making myself learn because eventually id like to be able to work on my car myself and put anything in it that id like unless its something real internal for example new pistons and rings so i can run higher PSI

Do you have a UTEC, or a UniChip? As far as I know you can't (or at least shouldn't) be running both.
Honestly dude lol i actually have no idea do you know where it would be located so i can check it and find out? i was actually thinking of buying something new but im not sure yet i heard unichips are old but i really know no information about this computer chip? i believe it is i dont even know what it is lol it was put in my car before i bought it. here are the sites that talk about my car

I know they are both old they are people that had this car before i had it. I have to make a up to date Cardomain saying that this is my car now

If you have a UTEC it would be located underneath the carpet in the passenger side floor board, next to the car's ECU. This is what it looks like..

something tells me your in over your head here... none of cobbs maps will work for you. i would hope there is some sort of tune one this car or we might be seeing another subie in the parts section. good luck with the car though

Find someone who still tunes them or go back to stock ECU and get reflashed with Opensource software.

No don't get an AP. You definitely need a protune with those mods. That means all the AP will do for you is allow you to read codes and upload maps, which you could do just as easily with a Tactrix cable that you'll pay $50 for instead of $600 for the AP.

LWFWs are known to cause misfire issues on these cars, even with tunes, so I would've skipped that and left a regular FW in there. Also that's a very heavy clutch for that mod list. A stock clutch would've been a better option.
