2000 V7 sti Factory Ecu remap.

Recommended Posts

Managed to get a really tidy v7 sti hatch. Only mods are equal headers and full exhaust with a fmic. Has Factory Ecu. I'm trying to find a balance between having a fun car but also keeping in mind I have a family now and She will be driving it too. I've read that the factory ecu's are tuned to Japanese fuel blah blah blah. I want to know the car is running the modification healthily as well. I don't see a point in investing 2.2k on a link and then another 1k on a tune if the factory ecu with a remap will suffice. I searched this forums and saw there are a few people who can do it with 1 or 2 people appraising them. I then googled for an official service and found tune technic offering the service from $1200.  Before I go ahead I wanted to get opinions. Thanks clubsub.

What's your location? Given the mods a ECU reflash will definitely help and I agree you don't need to invest in a Link.

the v7 sti is a solid car and the ecu is very well setup without needing to spend much

@Pappu1 did the tune on my V7 STI running factory computer i recommend him as well, also @PBMS also do a tune for you as well in puke they are just as good and you also get a nice pretty dyno sheet after the tune to show how much power you are making...you could always go to Dtech in tauranga they are good too...
