Question Ecutek !!! Money well spent ?

Just had my sti type uk ECUTEK'D last week after fitting a turbo back system and upgrading the fuel pump to a walbro 255 lph
The car was done by JOLLY GREEN MONSTER who flew into Belfast to do a mapping session and i have to say WOW !!!!! 346BHP and the same in torque running on SUL 97ron fuel (which is crap over here )
has to be the best money i have spent on the car so far
Just wondering what you guys think of ECUTEK ?

works great, but cost a lot of money and is alos really old. With a opensource tune using the stock ecu, or go with a Cobb AP and have a custome map installed onto it.

but I'm sure it's nice to have a tuned STI now!! it really is a night a day difference!!

crap I cant see if its simon lines or not.

I think any tuning is well worth the money. ECUTEK is not popular here. Cobb or opensource is more popular. Paying for the license is what killed ecutek i think, along with bigger and better stuff coming out.

Nothing wrong with ECUTek. We are probably one of the few that still use and promote it.

Still a great piece of software and tuning option.

I'm still running an ECUtek tune - my setup dates from before Cobb was working on STi's. It's more about the tuner than the tool, but my car is rock-solid and I appreciate the PSI3 integrations as well.
