Ecutek performance query

Guys,

Can anyone give realistic BHP performance after an Ecutek remap on my MY02 STi ??

I'd prefer to keep my standard Sti exhaust so it'll just be the remap alone


Cheers

Russ

Welcome m8 - I've had an Ecutec done on my 2001Bugeye WRX by Power Engineering and I have about 295bhp with the exhaust done (with sports cat!) so I would expect 300 or there abouts on yours - give Ian a call he may know t: 01895 255699 their in Uxbridge and can't recommend them high enough - although I'm not sure where you are - good luck and let us know how you get on 8)

The Ecutec 2 cost me about £700 at Power for the original program and subsequent remapping (couple of hours) and every reflash (when you had further mods for example) its another £125 or so - well worth it - do have a look at Powers T75 exhaust system with sports cat - it works well and NO mot nightmares - Power are in Uxbridge and there is Andy Forrest :bow: (respect) who is nr Glasgow - so your right in the middle - I'm sure theres someone nr you!

get yourself up to Powerstation and get Rich to map you up.

Although, without changing the zorst you won't get much of a gain.

To get 300bhp you'll need an exhaust system (with or without cat), TEK3 remap. Also for safety get a fuel pump.

Powerstation have transformed my MY02 STI into 382bhp/360lbs.

A lot of mods mind you

BHP performance after an Ecutek remap

I did exactly this on my UK MY02 STi. When I got it I liked the handling, but couldn't believe how peaky the power delivery was.

I gave it to Merve at Power Engineering for the day to see what he could get out of it. I wanted no physical mods other than a free flow filter.

I've still got the power plot - it shows the revised peak power at 292bhp at 6013 rpm, 277 lb/ft torque. Boost was upped to 1.3 bar. I've had the car from new and never had any problems with this setup.

The car still feels peaky compared to the latest scoobs, but overall there was a serious improvement and I'd recommend it.

I can post a scan of the power plot if anyone is curious.

I was chuffed with my rolling road with my Type R... Nothing has been re-mapped and my exhaust (cat back system) isnt really doing anything much until it is re-mapped...

Hoping for 320BHP and when I get my new turbo and FMIC, I'm aiming for 340BHP and hopefully more torque... Anything more I'm not so bothered about but its a bonus...

I have got a full De-Cat system on my 2004 WRX (UK Spec). I am hoping to get a Eutec fitted to mine. I think that I will get it done at Power in Uxbridge as I have heard that they are very good and its only half hour from me. I am not sure what "re-flash" is though? Also, my car is standard apart from the full de-cat system (going to be a pain at the first MOT!) and was wondering what sort of BHP to expect after the Ecutec and a panel airfilter is fitted and having the full de-cat system????

Any ideas would be grately apreciated.

Funny you should mention fuel. I read the post about re-setting the ECU. I remember the lady who I brought the car off of telling me that sometimes she had run the car on normal unleaded. After having the de-cat exhaust fitted and the lady running it on normal unleaded, I thought that I would re-set the ECU as I am curious to see if it makes any noticeable difference. It is a coincidence that I am resetting it overnight tonight. I am not sure which superleaded to put in it as I have noticed that the octane level varys between each super unleaded. I have seen 97 and 98 octanes but today noticed that my local Tesco's is 99 octane. What sort of fuel do you guys recommend? Do you think that it is better to go for the Tesco's 99 octane or something like Optimax or does it not really matter?

Thanks for you help in advance

There is a test on fuel in Banzai (March issue)

Tesco 99Ron did not fair as good as Ultimate but by far the best was Optimax.
Optimax was worth 10BHP over Ultimate and 24BHP over Tesco and 35BHP over Super Unleaded. This was done on a test bed Cosworth YB Engine Running 512bhp on Super UnLeaded and 547 BHP on Optimax.
