      2006 I believe. You shouldn't be limited with an 09, email or call United Motorsports. I have an 09 and didn't require a bench tune.

      Bought my 2.5l with 14 miles and now has 95k. I plan on owning it for another 10 years. Too reliable and fun of a car. :thumbup:

      Re: can't find DIY

      You'll either need the 2009 ecu or have yours reprogrammed by a tuning company (C2 or United Motorsports are the best for the 2.5l). Everything else, I believe, should be OK.

      The JDL kit is top notch. It's the kit I plan on going with this time next year.
