Where to start

Right ive now got myself a 97 uk impreza with

Front mounted intercooler, with solid hose kit
Apexi air filter,
HKS ssqv3 blow of valve and another that sounds like a bailey dump valve at low revs that i cant find :O but defo separate unit,
Hybrid electronic boost control valve
Full de-cat 3" right through sounds awesome as they all do

So after reading about de cats and problems with ecu and needing a remap im yet to find any solid posts on mine all seem to be for newer models so the question is, dose mine need or can it even be remapped one post says a 97 pre face lift no but that was back in 2010, guy ive bought mine off says it has a ecu something about 4pin ( dont ask me im clueless ) that can be re mapped looking at it its an 8S

car is quick very quick infact id say alot more than my old 93 wrx
but im clueless as where to start as wouldnt mind uprating the fuel pump injectors and turbo if at all possible

any ponters would be appreciated only looking to finish around the 300bhp mark will be plenty for me and what i want,
there is a print out that obv i cant follow to the letter as not sure what dyno was used but running at
243.5 bhp wheel and 191.9 at fly this was before the de cat im told

Re: Where to start

you will possibly have to get an apex afc if you can find one....got a funny feeling you will be hard pressed to find a decent cheap mapable ecu...
