Hi friends,

I launched MySubie.com over a decade ago with the hopes of uniting the Subaru community in a way that no website ever had. With tools to show off your car and explore and compare modifications like no other website still offers even today, I had hoped it would become the standard for how car enthusiasts connect online. Admittedly, I was also working on growing and creating Subaru festivals around the United States, which is still my primary focus today. As a result, MySubie.com hasn't had an update in nine years and its usage has dwindled. That being said, MySubie.com will be online until April 15th, at which point it will be taken down indefinitely.

Hope to you see you IRL at Subiefest, Wicked Big Meet, Boxerfest, or Big Northwest.

is there a device i can flash my 96 sti ECU with?

I just watched a couple videos on a simple device that plugs into your car and goes step by step to reflash your ECU for a simple small power gain and such. Now is there one available out there that doesnt cost me an arm for my 96 wrx sti?

It's non obd1 or 2. You'd have to go to a stand alone or a true "chip".
ViPEC has a one that is plug and play I heard. megasquirt or have ROB on NASIOC send you a chip.

I believe you are talking about a Tactrix Cable.

I recently "flashed" my ECU, but I didn't use anything but a wrench to undo the battery for a few minutes, then I just plugged it back in and the car seems to be working fine to me.

Unless it's an auto n you're dealin w/ shift points I wouldn't mess with it. Get a pro tuner to do it for you. Messin w/ stoichio could realy mess up your engins internals if you don't know what you're doin.
