Hey guys,

I have a 2007 sti that i drive year round and i am curious about the usability of a stand alone ecu for cold start in -30 degree celsius. Does any one have experience calibrating these at very cold temperatures? Is it possible to get a cold start good enough to use a remote starter? Also would itbs or larger cams make it get to a point where you would not be able to achieve the desired cold startability?

thanks a bunch

hello if you are using most stand-alone ECU's such as Link etc it is no issue to tune cold start down to -30 larger cams and itb will make it harder

Regards Ross


I read harder but not impossible? I suppose a certain size cam at some point it would be unrealistic to expect excellent cold start?

i have no plans to do larger cam, possibly just itbs.
