The NA does not respond well to any form of tuning. You might be able to tune a few more killer bicycles out of it, but really not worth the money. I do not even know if KingChett has ever done one.
Maybe you can fiddle for economy and smooth out power delivery, but that is the limit.

As far as I know, the NA ECU is not tunable.

Common thought is they are not tuneable.

You fit a chip (Uni...), and they can correct a few "errors"...., but not much is gained (I know :( )

Thanks for info guys. Was just wondering what my options are but wasn't expecting much anyways. Maybe just slightly better economy and a little more growl with a decent exhaust. You guys got his contact details? Sent a mail but no response as yet.

Thanks again.

Don't know if one chip is better than another, I think it comes down to writes the map, if they know what they are doing.
You need someone who has done Subarus/Fozzies.
A lot of guys just chip for racing, and it's not the same as for economy/torque/....

Mine is a Unichip by Dastek (http://www.dastek.co.za/
They have "agents" all over.

Never mind, eventually found the other N/A Chip Tuning thread.


I knew you had it done for a reason, just couldn't remember what.


I thought the UniChip might help with fuel consumption.

In the long run, nothing actually. Maybe it helped with fuel consumption, can't really say. :(
I had it fitted to try and sort out my pinging issue, which didn't help.
So, i've got a R3K device (chip = bluetooth module) in my car not doing anything.
The only benefit I got from it was to realize my pinging is not due to timing.

Best thing for any engine is air. Take out the cats(who needs cats anyway. All they do is yeowl and suck food).
Decent exhaust. Don't fit a cyclic air filter. More noise, more fuel consumption.
Took my bro in law for his first ride in a Subaru last week. He drives a Kia Spottage. I have an automatic(South African for AUTO).
He was amazed at the PULL my car had. Really in 2nd had him going. His is a diesel with much more torque.
Subaru has maintained a legacy of 4 wheel burnouts. We managed it once.
If you want a burn-out car or burnt out car, I strongly suggest an XT, no offense to XT owners.
Even though I have a N/A, the pull-off is still massively brutish to most other "soccer mom wagons"

Hahahahaha! ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D


Did you anchor the back of the car to a tree with a rope to get a "4 Wheel burnout"? I cant do it in my 300WKW 440WNM STI, an NA car and auto will never!


The XT is the best selling Subaru for a reason, simply because it is the best Subaru.

How in the world did you manage a four wheel burnout in a NA AT Forester with open diffs? I have 200wkw/ 380wnm and know I cannot get the wheels to break traction unless I am on the skid pan with a healthy dose of opposite lock.
Not knocking, just curious......
