      DOES THIS WORK ON MY CAR?????
      Here is the scoop.
      There are several different engine codes for the 2.5L. There are an unimaginable number of ECU box codes and software revisions for these engines as well.
      The software was tuned on the following:
      Engine Code: CBTA
      ECU Box Code: 07K906032BK
      Software Revision: S2438
      If you have this, you're all set. You can get the software the same day it launches.
      Now you're probably asking "What is my engine code? What's a Box Code? What the heck is a Software Revision!!!". Don't panic! I've got you covered.
      Here's the good news. Code is portable. What that means is if we compare one car's software to another, and the calibrations from the factory are the same, we can simply use the same calibration on both cars.
      Here's what you can do. All you need to do is take your car to an APR dealer. They'll hook up to your car and see if your software is currently compatible with what we have. If you have something we haven't seen yet, the APR dealer will simply copy down your vehicles information and send it over to the APR HQ. Once we get it, we'll take a look at the code and see if you are compatible. If it is, depending on the work load, the engineers can crank it out in a day. If not, we'll have to get one of those vehicles in house to tune.
      The really good news is you can do this before we launch the software. Anyone can head on over an APR Dealer and ask to be code extracted so check your software for compatibility and get it to you as soon as possible if it is. We'll let everyone know what we have available as more code is ported.
      If you need help locating an APR dealer, try our locator tool here: http://www.goapr.com/dealer/
      I hope this has been informative and not confusing. None the less, if you are still confused, let me know and I'll try to answer your questions the best I can.

      IIRC this code is not portable to the earlier engines and will require a new calibration.

      Do you have an APR Carbonio intake? Our intake shouldn't throw a check engine light.

      Sorry, what I meant was, when do you think you will have early build 2.5's programming available

      I do not have a date at this time so I don't want to say anything that would get peoples hopes up prematurely.

      Typo! I believe that should be around 160ish as indicated by the graph. Good catch!

      the longer a car is out, the better the performance parts become for that car.
