    Ok, coming from complete ignorance here. What makes the Ecutek preferable to the common Cobb based e-tuning? That's a lot of gains for a stage 1 map but I don't know if it's somehow technically superior.

    Oh and, what does it usually cost?

    It's a matter of preference, more tuners use Cobb.

    I like the idea of Auto-blip availability, though I'm nearly certain I would only like to have it, not really use it.

    I particularly like the Bluetooth capability!

    With that, these guys really need to get their numbers together!!! They have information on the tune showing:

    380/400 on assumedly Stage 1, nearly unbelievable for otherwise stock and 98/93

    < 400/440 on stage "0", completely unbelievable for otherwise stock on 98/93

    And acceleration numbers worse than stock, um WTF

    All that conflicting or seemingly bad information doesn't leave me with confidence in their attention to detail. Which is something that's pretty damn important, to me, if I'm allowing your device to write my ECU.

    LOL, good catch. I just assumed they were meaning 162 MPH, but it's obviously another mistake...

    Same, loved it on my Flexfuel Edelbrock supercharged BRZ. I was actually approached by Delicious tuning early on to test it out, but I couldn't commit since they haven't had any experience tuning the Ecoboost engine and are still a good 8 hrs drive away from me (SoCal vs NorCal). It definitely is more powerful than Cobb, giving the tuner much more control. Plus, I like the ECU connect, wished I had that back when I had the BRZ.

    Unfortunately, I don't know if it will catch on. They are just way too late to the party and Cobb just has the strangle hold on the tuning market right now. Way more Ecoboost tuners are comfortable tuning with the Cobb and I don't think very many of them would be enticed to learn a new platform.

    They're BHP numbers, not WHP. 30 hp and 40 tq from a tune isn't that unreal. It's actually pretty average.
