Re: uk to wrx spec

yeah afriad the 98's are a pain in the arse, the ecu's are unmappable and can;t even be piggy backed.

options are pretty limited, in fact your gonna have to go aftermarket ecu as said, as far as which one of the many that are out there realy depends on what your budget is and what your plans are.

Why not just buy a wrx or sti as will cost less to insure then a modded UK car anyway.
