BRZ/FR-S ECU Tuning Has Begun

A few of us lucky tuners were able to get our hands on the Beta ECUTEK ProECU software to tune the new BRZ and FR-S. ECUTEK is a UK company that has been reverse engineering ECU’s(Engine Control Units) in Subaru’s for 10 years now. This is as long as we have been building parts for Subaru’s so by no means are they new to the tuning world. Since June 27th at about 11am, we have been testing and tuning working [...Continue Reading...]

BRZ Front Pipe Design and Proving

Sticking with the theme of free flowing and 2.5″ tubing, the next restriction in the exhaust system after the catback exhaust is the Front Pipe for the BRZ. For all you STI and WRX fans, think of this as the downpipe for the BRZ.  Looking at the diagram below, you can see the Front Pipe is after the header and over pipe, but before the catback system. The Front Pipe consists of two flanges, a catalytic converter, and a strange rectangle  resonator. [...Continue Reading...]

Borg Warner EFR7670 Turbo Exposed and Tuned Part 1

EFR7670 Like a lot of guys out there, we have been waiting for an EFR to play with for a long time! Someone took this picture of me about a month ago waiting. Ok not really it was from today, but it sure feels like i have been waiting forever. I know there is no proven power yet, but very very soon. Maybe Nasioc can make a new Turbo section for things like this… Like the GTX thread i started [...Continue Reading...]

PERRIN Stage 3 Uni......wait, no more Unichip?????

These results are also for a product we no longer support (ECUTEK Flashes), but these results are right in line with what we see on our AccessPORT flashes which is what we currently offer.  Just don’t call and ask us for Unichip!! Stage 2 Unichip tuning, and turboback exhaust is all done and proven.  We then did our FMIC testing and showed the HP gains from it and discovered a major flaw in the EVO’s new engine design.  Read HERE for our Base [...Continue Reading...]

Time to put that exhaust to the test!  Last time we left the EVO X progress we had a nice and shiny turboback exhaust all done and awaiting testing. To refresh your memory see our page located HERE. Here [...Continue Reading...]

First to Tune a 2008 EVO X, Stage 1

All these results were done using a product we no longer support, or care to even mention the brand name!  This info is just showing we were first to the EVO X tuning game… This test was done on our 08 EVO X shop car. The important things to note is that this is a totally stock 2008 EVO X. The only thing done is the Unichip and our custom tune. Our first dyno results showed the EVO making very [...Continue Reading...]

2008 PERRIN STI, First to get an AccessPORT, Stage 1

We were very lucky to get our hands on the first STI available in Oregon, and maybe anywhere in the US.  Our dealer was very reluctant to sell us the car as it was not offically released.  After we dynoed it in stock form with in hours of owning the car, we very quickly shipped the ECU out to COBB next day air.  They needed the ECU for only a few hours and we got it back in 2 days [...Continue Reading...]
