I am so excited to see what Edwards magic rom can do for this rare car.
There is to my knowledge only this car in the whole Europe.
Car is stunning stock but I suspect it will soon be even better :)

It performs fantastic with the v6 rom. Dont know if it is true but I did not feel the hesitation at first turbo. Also I think second was much faster. It rev fast with strong power. So funny :)
There was lots of people, cars and police out. Think it is the warm weather, so I drove like granny I think but try to my best.
In all files car worked smooth and with plenty power, however, 2 times I got fuelcut or boost cut, dont know but my knee hurts now. You know bang and body goes forward. It happend first time on 4th gear in a hill. It is on file.
Second time it also happend in 4th gear after wot from 3rd, slightly downhill or straight road, also on file.
So car goes like mad when WOT. If we can sort out the boost cut (saw it was almost 18psi) it is great and I cannot wait to take father out for a spinn :)
Temp around 20-21 degree C
50-70 roads and also 110 road
Thanks Edward for great rom

With V7 the fuel cut is gone. Car goes like mad from low rpm to redline at WOT at all gears.
Car now performs with really good power. It also is very smooth, starts more easy and have better idle. Also noted that the engine sounds is different. With stock rom the engine sounded like there where some restriction. Now, engine can breathe and it can also be noted on the sound of the engine.
This is the performance the car should have had when it leave the factory.
I am very happy with this tune!

Its now tuned :)
Please read my review about XRT. I recommend XRT for all you needing a perfect tune.

This car is from what I know the only one in Europe at this time. Only made in 401 pcs year 2002.
As this engine is a hand built STI engine for minimum 100 octane is was very important to get it tuned for swedish 98 octane and also some improvement.
I have been following openecu forums since 2007 and ONE guy have always stand out in lots of posts. Mr. Edward!
So when car was ordered I contacted Ed and asked if could help me tune the car.
When the car was road legal we started the tune.
The support from Ed is totally outstanding. He responds to question almost 24 hours a day. He send me new updated roms faster than I could flash and log. His commitment is unique. He is more than a tuner, he is also a friend and a listener. Think that is extremely unique. He care about you and the car!

Off course the tune is also outstanding. The car is now starting more easily, idle more smooth, better respond, better engine sound, more power low and high. This tune is what Subaru should have done. Very Impressive. I can recommend all you that need a real good tune XRT and Mr. Edward.
