:claphead:Thats impressive. On stock not only making more power, but moved the powerband down 100rpm
Ed has become a 5eat H4 and more lately the 5eat H6 Zen master. He can manipulate it in ways that we mere mortals can't. We have a 20 person tuning group that is alive...24-7. XRT is our fuel.:claphead:Thats impressive. On stock not only making more power, but moved the powerband down 100rpm

l'd like to write a short review for the tuning process done by XRT. Edward is very helpful and kind walking me through the tuning process. He is on duty almost 24 hours and that is not exaggerated, I don't know when he sleeps. The time difference between my country and Barbados is seven hours, but Ed replies even in the middle of the night as I calculated. He resolved some of the minor pre-tune problems that the car had like leak from the air box (very common problem in these models by the way check it if you are planning a tune), AVICS solenoid malfunction and so on. This is the time to say that if you are panning to do a tune be prepared to change some things that Ed will diagnose for sure. That is a collateral damage to your wallet but it is an absolute must for good results.
About the tune: As you all probably felt the same way I was nervous when I reset the OEM ECU for the first time and installed the v1. But since that the satisfaction of driving my Scuby is tremendous. The shifting is better and with a good torque from the low RPM to the rev limit. The shifting is faster and you feel the extra power, although I added headers to my tune project and it is even better since than. The thinking before changing to lower gear of the old gear box is now a thing of the past. You have no problems to overpass and you feel much more confident.
Overall very satisfied with the tune, will recommend Ed to anyone that wants a proper Subaru tune and extraction a few horsepower from this wonderful engine.
Thank you Ed
I tried to PM you but I haven't posted enough messages in the forum yet to have that ability.Hello Jeff:
Nice to meet you.
The vag-com will work, but it is just not fast enough to really log. The Tactrix Openport 2.0 is and works nicely and you can always sell if needed.
I look forward to your reply or pm.

Just wanted to let you know I ordered the Tactrix Openport 2.0 and it should get delivered on Monday. I found an oil leak I would like to repair first but if that won't cause any problems for you and the tune we can go ahead as soon as I have the part.
Thanks and I look forward to working with you on this upgrade!
Greetings and welcome from the lurker pool. :grin2:My question is, I want to get more power out of my car. I'm thinking down pipe. (Invida w/cat) and up-pipe. Should I start tuning AFTER installing those
All thoughts appreciated!
