    Read my post #201 a few back. Not sure if tune will come with EZ flash software but if not the web site listed in my post has it and the drivers
    needed.

    Wow 30 to 40 minutes. I wonder if its the EZ Flash or the ECM writing limit speed that makes it take so long.
    Wow.. With my Cobb ACCESS PORT(handheld tuning) device it takes like 2 minutes

    My STI stock vs ATS its gotta be fair.

    My STI was much faster feeling in a straight line out of the box and faster too. Horsepower aside the STI
    Has AWD and a great tranny. So launching was fairly violent stock she also has a 4 multiple front and rear slip differentials. Now that I'm running a GTX3076 turbo she's is downright scary violent on launches and I can spin all 4 wheels in the first 3 gears. I had the engine overbuilt. Sub 3 0-60 on launch control
    ATS feels ok on full launch but not scary at all. I love how it boogies at 2000 rpm. But it needs more power
    IMO in a straight line.

    Now on the twisties.

    The subie stock was decent on cornering I tracked her stock and found a lot of body roll.
    I have the 2011 so suspension went where you pointed her. I added fully adjustable coils and big sway
    Bars and she was a track beast.

    ATS IN MY OPINION IS one of the best sedans I've driven chasis wise I call her tossable. I love to throw
    her back end into corners she's very predictable.
    Stock the ATS is a far superior track drivers car in the cornering handling sense. She just needs 200 more hp and torque.
    She would be perfect.
    My STI IS JUST SO SCARY FOR MY PAASENGERS NOW. I LOVE IT
    Guys google the video on the CRAWFORD BRZ and you will understand. It's all about power to weight ratio.

    very nice comparison. so stock vs stock are they close to parr? or the sti stomps it in every aspect?

    also, whats ur speculation on stock sti vs tuned ats? (btw what trim is ur ats?)

    2.0T RWD Auto with CUE/NAV MOONROOF.
    I WOULD SAY STOCK STI WOULD BE FASTER THAT A FLASHED OR TUNED ATS WITH NO BOLT ONS IN A
    STRAIGHT LINE.

    BUT I PREFER THE FEEL OF THE ATS ON THE TWISTIES.

    BUT OVERALL NO VERY COMPARABLE IMO DIFFERENT CLASS OF CARS

    Go to wot-tuning.com like previously posted for the latest version of EZ-Flash software. There was a little confusuion on drivers cause my red cable was translucent but did NOT have the Tactrix label like the web site said it should be. Contacted BNR and Jerry sent this link to correct driver for
    the red cables used in our group buy:

    http://badnewsracing.net/ezflash/CDM20814_Setup.exe

    It installed onmy vista laptop w/o any trouble.

    Yep, got mine too. To flash back to stock just select stock tune from EZFlash menu. Stock tune is embedded in the tune we
    got today.

    Put my tune in and it took better part of 1/2 hr to do as it read/writes twice. Once it got to 100% 1st time, then flashed a quick message on screen
    that I could not read fast enough, then did another read/write cycle.

    couple things: 1st- the 1st cpu I tried to use kept giving font errors. EZ needs 96 dpi and no mather how I adj res etc I could not see accept box in custom tune EZ program. All other EZ boxes ok. Changed to different cpu and all went well. 2nd- when you hold down start for 5 sec, dash segments all light up but no message u are in service mode

    OK- How does it work. VERY GOOD. I have a OBDII gauge so I can read out all engine parameters so I set it to read boost and knock retard.
    For a quick best comparison, put it in 3rd gear and set rpm to about 3000. In tour mode or stock, wot at 3000 yields 13-16 psi and no knock.
    In sport or tune mode, I see 20-22.5 psi and a couple deg knock retard. Car lifts up in front because it is pulling so hard.
    Wot from a start gives more boost than stock thus pulling harder- feels great. I will have to record some runs with my gauge and play them back to
    get more exact numbers. Gauge can read out mass air flow and torque directly so will record those to. Stock gave 30 #/min which cals to 260.8
    ft #, the # GM gives for stock.

    Make SURE your cpu has ALL power saving shutoff before u program. U do not want it to go to sleep 1/2 way thru programming.
