Just wanted to let you guys know we have been doing some recent testing with the factory ecu and have had some success to this point. We were able to read the factory file and have started writing a custom definition file so we can begin tuning. So far we have been able to locate the torque limits, fuel, ignition etc tables. Hopefully over the next coming week we will have our first dyno session. We we only doing baselines in the pic on the dyno after we read the factory ecu. I know others have not invested much time in the USDM platform because we were launched with the Marelli ecu vs. the European Bosch ecu but we stuck it out and got the necessary information we needed to alter the factory maps.
Knew it was only a matter of time. Thanks for being the first
This is a real deal tune boys. The piggy back boxes will be history eventually depending on how well this pans out.
Can't wait to see if the intake cam is tunable.

Best news i have heard in a while!!
keep us posted on your progress!
When you go Abarth, you don't go back!!!
Injen Intake / Forge Intercooler / Forge Blow off valve and wastegate
Neu-F RSe05 17" Wheel w/ 215/40/17 Yokohama AD08R / CF RRM rear diffuser
Neu-F Catback (no muffler) / Neu-F Short shifter / Neu-F rear torsion bar
Bilstein Coilovers / UniChip stage 2
Great news! Hopefully, this won't be a tough nut to crack. Looking forward to seeing the development of this!
Ill come back to this after the warranty has expired!!! Plug N Play is better until then......

Unichip (stage2/V4 add on), EuroComp V4 Intake, HPSI Boost Valve, R1 Premium Rotors F/R, Craven SS and GearKnob
Most flashes are undetectable from the dealership scan tools. Thats the advantage of bench flashes vs obd flashes. Not to mention our intent is to put our tune on the sports mode button only.
Kinda out of the blue but is there a chance you can measure the differences between the latest PCM reflash and the previous program? I'm sure that's not in your plan but it might be interesting and useful to at least know the differences in the maps, if not dyno comparisons.
Just a thought...

I spent most of my money on fast cars, guitars and pretty women. I somehow managed to waste the rest of it.
